The last bit seems to give some credit to the stories that the phone at a cost of $ 1,000 and more will be quite scarce at launch. As we noted last week, the company is currently expected to have between two and three million units available for the month of November 3 launch date.
The phone’s demand is likely to be tempered by a number of factors, including price and the company’s unusual decision to stagger releases this time out. The iPhone 8 has already been on the market for a month at this point, and has likely eaten into potential sales a bit, as the company has hammered out of the aforementioned production issues with the higher end device.
The iPhone X is reaching Apple stores in limited quantities, which is probably the fastest way to get one, assuming your father does not work there, of course.
