10 Things You Should Do Before the iPhone X Release Date

Apple iPhone X pre-orders don’t start for a few weeks, but there are a few things you should do before the highly anticipated phone goes on sale.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus hit shelves on September 22nd, but the company’s flagship, the iPhone X, won’t go on sale until late October.

iPhone X pre-orders are set to begin on October 27th ahead of a worldwide release on November 3rd. The iPhone 8 release date didn’t get much attention, but the iPhone X release date will likely be a spectacle due to production issues and the supply problems that will almost certainly plague the launch.

Apple hasn’t confirmed but reports have outlined the production delays Apple and the iPhone X are facing ahead launch. According to the most recent report, final production of the iPhone X has yet to begin. That’s a huge problem for Apple and those looking to buy this phone in 2017.

We’ve put together a guide that will assist you in your quest to pickup Apple’s $1000 iPhone. If you take some steps before the iPhone X goes on sale you’ll be in great shape when Apple puts its next iPhone on sale in the United States and countries around the world.

One thing you'll want to do before the iPhone X goes on sale is go hands-on with Apple's two other iPhones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
