Following the launch of iPhone X pre-orders this morning, shipping estimates for the handset have quickly slipped back to between 5-6 weeks in the majority of countries excepting initial orders.
A handful of lucky iPhone X customers were able to grab their desired devices with a shipping date of next Friday (November 3rd), with Apple quickly adjusting the delivery estimates to 2-3 weeks, followed by 4-5 and now 5-6 at the time of writing.
It looks as if Apple has sold out of all available iPhone X stock, with those now pre-ordering handsets having to wait until Apple is able to manufacture and ship their batch from production in China.
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.
