Apple Announces iPhone X Preorder Apple Announces iPhone X Preorder

Preorders are now live for Apple’s iPhone X, following the announcement of the new smartphone in September at Apple’s annual iPhone event.

The iPhone X is now available on Apple’s website and mobile store app, as well as through the various major carriers and retailers like Best Buy and Target.

The new devices are expected to start shipping on November 3, though delivery dates are likely to slip back by weeks or months, The Verge reported.

iPhone X comes in either ‘silver’ (i.e., white) or ‘space grey’ (i.e., black). Apple is selling two models — one with 64GB of storage that costs $999, and a 256GB model for $1,149.

The biggest new features on the device are a new bezel-less design with a 5.8-inch OLED display, along with a new Face ID system that uses facial recognition for unlocking the phone.

Other improvements like the A11 Fusion processor and the addition of wireless charging that were introduced with the iPhone 8 will also appear on the X.

Demand for the new phone is expected to be extremely high. Considering reports of supply issues due to difficulty in manufacturing sensors Apple is likely to face problems with shipping the product on time.
