  • Preorders for Apple's $999 iPhone X begin Friday

Apple began accepting early orders for its iPhone X and shipping times quickly lengthened to as much as five weeks in the USA, signalling supplies will likely remain tight as the new device goes on sale November 3.

Within minutes of pre-orders of the iPhone X opening on Apple's website, delivery times rose to five to six weeks.

A separate report in the Nikkei Asian Review claims Apple's annual output for the iPhone X will be around half of the 20 million units it originally planned.

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

It's the most advanced iPhone the tech firm has ever released, featuring facial recognition, wireless charging and an impressive edge-to-edge OLED display.

While some analysts give an edge for Android over Apple, others refuse the assumption that iPhone can be rivaled. Apple fans took in stride indeed and flooded the Apple war room with pre-orders. The iPhone X officially goes on sale next Friday, Nov. 3.

Apple is expected to reach full production of iPhone X in the first quarter of 2018, and that will likely prompt consumers to resort to other options this holiday season especially with the steep prices of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus starting at $699.

All six of the tweets Comey has written since he joined Twitter in February 2014 include photos-most of which are scenic. Comey confirmed it on Monday by tweeting a picture of himself standing on a road staring into the distance.

The rush to pre-order and high demand may be a sign that Apple has managed once again to rally the iPhone faithful and their bank accounts to its retail cause.

At any rate, even if some may argue that this isn't the "right" way to pronounce the iPhone X's name, at the very least, you know how Apple wants you to say it.

Despite having the same A11 bionic chipset and almost the same camera module as the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X holds a major leg up due to its futuristic-looking screen.

Most people will go directly to Apple to try and snag the phone.

A year ago marked the slowest growth rate for the smartphone industry since it began, and Apple's iPhone sales dropped for four straight quarters.

Apple does not typically publish figures relating to the shipping or release of new iPhones, so the extent of the supply issues is not clear. That means not everyone will get the coveted new iPhone as soon as they'd hoped. Apple has a new mail-in program for those that need to trade-in their old device for the Upgrade Program.

While the phone was only available for a few weeks, it's a much smaller share than the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 had achieved in the same timeframe, when it accounted for 43 percent of sales.
