Expect a Sell Out

Expect a Sell Out

The rumors leading up to the iPhone X launch event in September suggested that Apple was having issues making the new flagship. The company didn't confirm those rumors on stage, but the delayed launch is all the confirmation we need. 

Rumors continue to outline the production delays Apple and the iPhone X are facing ahead of the device's arrival on November 3rd.

According to a report from noted Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone X won't be widely available until next year due to various production issues. That’s a huge problem for Apple and those looking to buy the iPhone X later on this month. It means a sell out is likely. 

At this point, given everything we know, we expect the iPhone X to sell out shortly after it goes on sale on October 27th. Don't be surprised if shipping times start getting pushed back just minutes after the clock strikes 12:01AM Pacific. 

If you want an iPhone X on November 3rd or anytime in 2017, be prepared to pre-order the phone as soon as it goes on sale.
