Today is the day when Apple iPhone X fans will finally get their hands on the desired handset. That is if they aren’t in San Francisco, where thieves stole more than 300 units right off the UPS truck that was delivering them. According to the police, the value of the stolen devices rises to $370,000.00. Also, this means that approximately 300 customers will have to wait a little longer to finally get their Apple iPhone X smartphones. As it seems, the event won’t be affecting people who pre-ordered the handset and were supposed to pick them up from the Apple Store on Friday. However, those who showed up at the stores without previously pre-ordering the smartphones could have nothing to buy.
Apple was already struggling to meet demand on the Apple iPhone X, and this further complicated the situation. Although 300 units is not really a lot when we think of the number of smartphones Apple delivers, in this particular case is enough to leave some customers without the possibility to purchase the handset. Thankfully for those who found themselves in this situation, the estimated shipping time of the iPhone X is now only 3-4 weeks, instead of the 5-6 weeks we’ve seen before. Even those who couldn’t buy an iPhone X by simply walking into an Apple Store can order the handset online and get it in a few weeks.
The interest in the Apple iPhone X is a lot higher than it was in the case of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Tthe high number of pre-orders reflect this, first of all. It’s only natural that Apple fans who can afford it prefer to opt for the top-tier handset instead of the other two models. The iPhone X is just as powerful as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, however, it has some extra features to offer and it has the more modern design. It is, without a doubt, one of the most interesting smartphones to launch this year. It is also quite expensive, as its price starts at $999 and can go up to $1,149, depending on the storage option.
