The IPhone X Must Have Accessories

Preorders for Apple's $999 iPhone X begin Friday

Apple began taking online orders for the iPhone X yesterday and its website now indicates a five to six week shipping delay in the US, Australia, China, and much of Europe.

Preorders opened at 3:01 a.m. EST for those devoted to having the new equipment in their hands first.

Apple has announced service pricing for the new iPhone X smartphone and it's not cheap.

Under an AppleCare+ warranty, iPhone X repairs for accidental damage will cost $99 while repairs for faulty components are covered in full. FYI, the phones have already gone out of stock and one has to wait at least for a month to enjoy the latest and greatest Apple iPhone X. If you are buying from an Apple authorised retail stores or e-commerce websites like Amazon or Flipkart, then these plans are not applicable.

The iPhone X supports the Qi wireless charging standard, which opens the choice for wireless charging accessories beyond the two devices Apple is offering in the Apple Store.

That should work because Apple says its stores will have some stock for walk-ins on November 3, but expect quantities to be severely limited.

But once you factor in tax and other typical additions like Apple Care+, it's actually more than that - either by a little bit or a lot, depending on which model you purchased and how you bought the phone. The iPhone 8 is priced at Rs. 64, 000 for 64 GB version and Rs. 77,000 for the 256 GB varient. iPhone 8 Plus 64GB and 256GB storage models come at Rs. 73,000 and Rs. 86,000, respectively.

- The highest-end new iPhone model is likely to break the $1,000 smartphone barrier, making it a test of how much people are willing to pay for a pocket supercomputer. That means not everyone will get the coveted new iPhone as soon as they'd hoped.

The iPhone X is the company's most expensive phone but reports said many customers were waiting for the device. One report mentioned that the iPhone 7, released a year ago, was outselling the iPhone 8. Will you be dropping a grand on an iPhone X today or in the near future?

The sales of Apple's new "mainstream" phones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, have so far not been overly convincing in the US, shows numbers from analyst firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners. By 4:35 a.m. ET Sprint's website still listed all models of the iPhone X as being available for delivery by November 3, though some customers noted on Twitter that the site was giving them problems checking out.
