The much-awaited worldwide launch of Apple iPhone X is finally here!
However, unlike the previous iPhone launch when the stores had widespread availability of the device, this year the company will be facing supply problems with iPhone X.
Only the ones who have placed confirmed pre-order with the delivery date as November 3 will get the phone.
Retail employees have confirmed that the stores do not have much iPhone X stock. The in-store inventory at launch will be very limited.
You will be lucky if you manage to get hold of the new phone.
However, all stores will have a demo device of the new launch.The customers can analyse it and make their bookings.
The deliveries for them will be available in December or January. Meanwhile, reports have come out stating that some people who initially got the shipping date as November 10-17, will now be getting the phones on November 3.
While few others who were supposed to get the phone on November 17-24 are expected to get the deliveries on November 8.
iPhone is certainly trying to improve the production of iPhone X.
Last month Apple launched three models together. The other two iPhone 8 and 8Plus have experienced weak sales.
This resulted in the downfall of Apple's shares last week.
The weak sales of the other two models is because of the slew of options that the tech giant provided to its users.
