IPhone X Pre-Orders Are Live But There's Already A Long Wait

Here's a quick run down of the iPhone X before pre-orders open at 12:01am PT

- In the USA and other mature technology markets, people have been holding onto their existing phones for longer than they did a few years ago.

The most important iPhone upgrade in years is finally here. Apple's flagship will be available for pre-order in tandem across 55 countries. Between taxes, AppleCare+ or any other insurance you choose, and any cases or accessories you choose to buy, prepare to spend much more than $1,000 for the iPhone X experience. I have still yet to place my order for the iPhone X. No worries! This is why Patently Apple posted a report prior to the iPhone event in September titled "It's Circus Time: Apple Competitors race to discredit the coming iPhones as behind the Curve & Late to Market" so that Apple fans could take all the noise that would be coming Apple's way in stride.

Despite this, Mashable says that Kuo's new predictions about the competition come with slightly lower expectations for the iPhone X's success in the short term.

According to Business Insider, shipping times for iPhone X preorders on Apple.com were delayed weeks after just minutes of availability. This cashback brings down the price of your iPhone X to Rs 79,000.

The company launched the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus last month to cash in on the Diwali sale season. Farmers & Merchants Trust Co of Chambersburg PA now owns 12,993 shares of the iPhone maker's stock worth $1,871,000 after purchasing an additional 700 shares during the period. And if for some reason you missed iOS 10.3, you'll get 60 security patches with your version of iOS 11.0.3.

NY bans e-cigarettes in workplaces
In New York , around 70 percent of the state's municipalities already have bans on the books, according to the American Lung Association.

Another major sacrifice/compensation is the lack of a home button on the iPhone X. To accommodate the full screen of iPhone X, Apple had to do away with their traditional home button; the single button on the front panel. Customer will have to recharge with Rs 799 or above for a period of 12 months or perform one-time yearly recharge of Rs 9,588 or above on Jio. Reliance Jio offered a 70 per cent buy back guarantee with the purchase of the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Apple charges $169 for iPhone 8 Plus screen repairs and $399 for other damage.

The $549 out of warranty fix actually has the same price of a new iPhone 7. The rear cameras feature quad-LED True Tone flash with Slow Sync Hybrid, an IR filter, dual optical image stabilisation and autofocus with Focus Pixels.

Analysts have cautioned that production of the phone was below target, due to difficulties in producing the TrueDepth camera system, which houses sophisticated cameras and sensors making it possible to unlock the phone using Face ID.
