With the holidays around the corner Apple has been able to update the shipping estimates for the iPhone X, with customers placing orders online being given a delivery window of between 1-2 weeks.
Both the 64GB and 256GB devices have been given the new delivery time-frame in the majority of countries around the world, showing that Apple’s production partners have been able to overcome initial delays and now appear to be able to manage iPhone X demand following initial delays caused by problems producing the devices TrueDepth camera system.
The iPhone X is anticipated to be at the top of Christmas wish-lists this year, with Apple promoting the handset within their “Sway” holiday commercial and featuring it within their annual gift guide.
According to Apple, iPhone X “demand is off the charts”, with pre-order delivery estimates quickly slipping back to between 5-6 weeks within an hour of orders being excepted. The iPhone X, pronounced “iPhone Ten”, features a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED edge-to-edge display with 2436 x 1125 resolution and 458ppi, HDR support, Dolby Vision, HDR10, and True Tone. The Home Button has been removed from the iPhone X, with Apple adding a new Tap to Wake feature which works alongside Raise to Wake.
iPhone X features the new A11 Bionic chip with a special neural engine that helps power Face ID which unlocks the device by taking a 3D scan of the users face. Apple says Face ID can’t be spoofed by photographs, masks, and makeup, and changing your actual appearance with a hat or beard or makeup won’t prevent Face ID from working.
