Apple Says iPhone X Will Be Available for Walk-In Purchases In Stores November 3
Apple today shared a number of details concerning the iPhone X launch, which will officially get under way October 27. First, Apple says Apple Stores will stock the device for launch-day purchases. "Stores will have iPhone X available for walk-in customers, who are encouraged to arrive early," said Apple. That means those who don't preorder the phone may be able to pick it up at their local Apple Store, which will open at 8a.m. local time on Friday, November 3. Numerous reports have suggested launch day stock of the phone may be severely limited. Preorders for the iPhone X begin at 12:01a.m. PDT on October 27. Apple suggests people take advantage of the Apple Store mobile application to complete their preorder. People who are members of the iPhone Upgrade Program can check to see if they’re eligible to upgrade and get a head start on their iPhone X upgrade between now and 4p.m. PDT on Thursday, October 26. Apple will accept trade-ins. Eligible smartphones will be accepted for up to $375 in credit towards the cost of a new iPhone X. The iPhone X will be available in silver and space gray in 64 GB ($999) and 256 GB ($1,149) variants. People interested in buying the device through Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program can score the phone and AppleCare+ starting at $49.91 per month. Last, Apple said a number of accessories will be available for the iPhone X on launch day, including silicon and leather cases, and Lightning Docks. The iPhone X sports a new design when compared to the iPhone 6, 7, and 8. It has a 2:1 display that measures 5.8 inches across the diagonal. It includes wireless charging, dual cameras, and Face ID, Apple's new facial recognition security feature.
