iPhone X sells out in minutes as Apple pre-orders launch today

Rogers iPhone X Pre-Orders Try to Launch But Website Goes Down

And those in Apple's Upgrade Program can also get loan pre-approvals for iPhone X via the device's product page in the Apple Store app ahead of time to ensure a speedy checkout.

The iPhone X launches next Friday, but pre-orders in many markets now won't be delivered until December.

Today marked the kick-off for iPhone X preorders, Apple's much anticipated 10th-anniversary edition of its iPhone.

During the Apple Special Event 2017, the first event ever held in the Steve Jobs Theater, Cook took the stage to take the wraps off the "future of the smartphone", and notably, he called it the iPhone "ten".

The iPhone X's service prices are significantly higher than those of other iPhone models, all of which are subject to the same three rules.

Metal Gear Survive's release date revealed
It's also one of the first major games Konami is releasing since it chose to focus other endeavors, like slot machines. PC players are restricted to the digital copy, which Konami said will be available on Steam.

The all-new iPhone includes a new 5.8inch edge-to-edge OLED multi-touch display, water resistant design, and improved dual camera set-up with OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) on both lens. It is also offering a cashback of Rs 10,000 for customers buying the iPhone X with a Citibank Credit card and Citi World Debit cards.

If you weren't lucky enough to nab a pre-order, your best bet is to line up at an Apple store or another authorized retailer on Friday.

Apple now estimates a five to six week wait for the iPhone X. The phone is set to be released November 3.

Apple does not typically publish figures relating to the shipping or release of new iPhones, so the extent of the supply issues is not clear. Even if you don't have Apple Care+, getting your battery repaired or replaced through Apple will still be a fraction of the price of a new iPhone. The company said stores will be open at 8 a.m. with a limited number of iPhone X devices for walk-in customers, "who are encouraged to arrive early".

The weak sales numbers are probably caused by a long wait for the premium iPhone X, which will officially be launched in the Nordics in November. Compare that $80 against the cost of a new iPhone and you have yourself a much better and cheaper option than buying a new iPhone simply because your current iPhone's battery is dying. The iPhone 8 is priced at Rs. 64, 000 for 64 GB version and Rs. 77,000 for the 256 GB varient. iPhone 8 Plus 64GB and 256GB storage models come at Rs. 73,000 and Rs. 86,000, respectively. One report mentioned that the iPhone 7, released previous year, was outselling the iPhone 8. After about 30 minutes Apple sold completely out of the iPhone X.
