iPhone X pre-order starts today

This is it. The moment many have been waiting for. The much-anticipated iPhone X is open for pre-order today, Friday, 27 October 2017 in 57 countries. Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone is set to hit stores starting next Friday, 3 November 2017.

It is much speculated that iPhone fans have been holding out on purchases of the more conventional iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, to make way for the “bigger” upgrade—iPhone X. This is despite the iPhone X’s bigger price tag, the priciest iPhone to date, to be precise.

This could be a turning point for Apple, as response to the iPhone 8 has been lukewarm at best. It will be interesting to see if Apple has enough iPhone X’s in stock.

Briefly checking out the Singapore Apple Online Store, delivery of iPhone X orders are quoted as “4-5 weeks.” At the moment, there’s no pickup option available (from the nearest Apple Store).

The iPhone X is available in Silver and Space Grey with prices starting from SGD1,648/MYR5,149 for the 64GB variant, and SGD1,888/MYR5,899 for the 256GB model.

Malaysians, as usual (what’s new), will have to wait a little longer for the latest and greatest iPhone. But who’s stopping you from buying from overseas (if you can’t wait). If you want a cheaper, more conventional option, there’s always the iPhone 8.

As a quick refresher, the iPhone X features an all-new glass-metal design with an all-screen 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display, cutting-edge TrueDepth camera with FaceID, powerful A11 Bionic chip, incredible 12MP dual cameras, wireless charging, just to name a few. It runs the latest iOS 11 out-of-the-box.

It’s the biggest change to the iPhone, since the original iPhone but you knew that already.
