The new iPhone X is almost here, the handset launches this Friday the 3rd of November. Demand for the new iPhone could outstrip supply into early next year. Apple’s new iPhone went up for pre-order last Friday and Apple have already revealed that demand for the handset is ‘off the charts’.
This statement from Apple suggests that demand for their new iPhone could be the highest of any iPhone released to date. The handset may end up being Apple’s most popular smartphone over the last 10 years.
If you order a new iPhone online you won’t be getting your handset until December, Apple is showing shipping times of 5 to 6 weeks for the iPhone X. It has been showing these shipping times shortly after pre-orders of the handset started last Friday. The handset will also go on sale in Apple’s retails store this Friday.
Demand for the new iPhone at Apple’s retails stores is also expected to be high, with many people who wanted to order the handset online for release day now expected to turn up at Apple Stores. We are expecting to see large queues at Apple stores on Friday and suspect that Apple will sell out of their stock of the new iPhone in their stores next weekend.
Apple’s new iPhone X is the company’s most expensive smartphone to date, the handsets costs $999 in the US and £999 in the UK, this higher price does not seem to have put Apple fans off though. Apple are expected to take some time to catch up with the demand for the new iPhone and it is expected to be in short supply into early 2018.
