Apple Now Offers Next-Day Delivery on iPhone X Orders

iPhone-X-next-day-delivery
When Apple debuted the iconic iPhone X back in October, they started to accept pre-orders for the device right then and there. But even those who were among the first to pre-order the device, the iPhone X was not released until November 3rd. What this meant is that people had to wait a few days before they could get their hands on this year's much-awaited device. And even though the iPhone X has been available for some time now, those who ordered the phone will have to wait a few days or weeks before they could pick it up.

Fast forward to almost two months and it looks like Apple has finally caught up with the demand of their 10th year flagship smartphone. When you visit the Apple online store in the US, you'll get to see that all iPhone X models are now enlisted as "in stock." And the best part about this news is that Apple is already offering next-day delivery for every order! In some stores, same-day pickup is also available.

Now that Apple has improved its iPhone X stock, we could see the prices of these devices on eBay scalpers go down pretty soon. For a while, these sellers were pricing the device at ridiculously high prices because they had the upper hand. With today's news, this could change for them. 

Although the stock of the iPhone X has improved on Apple's website and retail stores, the same cannot be said true for its AirPods. In fact, if you are looking for a pair of the truly-wireless earbuds, you won't be able to buy it until next year.

As it turns out, the AirPods were a popular holiday gift of choice, which led to its supply running out. Even if you head to retailers like Walmart, Adorama, Target, B&H, and Best Buy, you won't be able to find AirPods anywhere around. These retailers are all waiting on more shipments, which are expected to arrive by January 4th. The same is true with US carriers that carry the earphones.

So if you have been thinking of getting the iPhone X, now's your chance to do it. You can head over to Apple's website so you can pick up a new smartphone and have it delivered to you the next day. Unlocked models are also available so you have a choice to pick out the carrier you like.

    1. I will definitely buy one of these. I wait until the price drops $300 on mint used iPhones still on AppleCare, which is usually around the end of July when people sell early to prep for the newest one in Sept. I plan to keep them 2 years or resell whenever the battery drops to just over 80%. I have never paid more than $10/month average, or about 35-40% of the finance cost over 24 months for a new one.

      This strategy does not work with Android flagships. You have to keep them an extra year since they all depreciate faster.

    2. Warranty usually doesn't transfer to 2nd owner with Android phones. So you take on more risk when you buy them used.

  2. The phones that can "get the job done as well", with top performance and best-in-class cameras, tend to cost about $800... that's only $200 less than the iPhone X, and I'd not call that "cheap". Anything lower than that and you are going to be factoring in significant compromises and the usual "it's not near as good but I pay a lot less!" examples.

      Most of us know that the latest and greatest electronics will only hold the crown for a fleeting moment before being dethroned. The iPhone X will be discounted soon enough just like the Pixel 2 (and every flagship phone before it) is becoming less expensive.

  3. Iphone x is a status symbol and a must have for any millennial pushing for a promotion or raise at their jobs because that is how the millennial controlled corporations and businesses are. Being able to have it delivered in one day also eliminates the excuses millennials have been using for not yet owning the X as they call it.

    4. "Gotta keep up with the Joneses, even if it means working 5 jobs and selling your organs."

      Buddy, do you drink beer? Because the typical annual beer budget costs less than an iPhone X. And if you do drink beer, what organs do you donate to the cause (aside from the obvious, such as the liver)?

    5. "But I also get why some people would spend $1150 on a phone plus accessories that'll be obsolete in one year"

      This is much more likely to actually happen with an Android flagship phone, many of which get just one OS upgrade (if even that!) before they are put out to pasture. Obsolete in a year or so.

      Apple typically supports its phones with OS upgrades for 4 to 5 years. So, the iPhone X won't be one of those "obsolute in a year" for sure. Make it 4 times that.

      Delete
    6. If your beer budget is 0 and you don't get an iPhone X then you save that much more.

      As for keeping the iPhone X for 4 years, that's like having a 5s right now when the SE is all the rage.

      iPhones don't stack up that well after a while, when the average cost per year based on the original price is more than what it costs to get an even better iPhone a few years down the line.

      At least with Android, you can get a decent phone on the cheap and upgrade whenever you want, all without feeling like a sucker.

    2. "If you wait forever, you might find the perfect phone."

      It's easy to imagine, and it would not be rocket-science to make...

      Something with the general design excellence of the old Moto Droid 3, with a "still much better than onscreen" horizontal slider keyboard that can still be slid away and totally ignored if you prefer Gboard, a headphone jack (STILL useful) and a removable battery.... all 3 being significant design superiority over many modern and even top smartphones.

      Stuff inside this a top of the line Android phone driven by the current best Snapdragon, with a great 5" + AMOLED screen, no less than 4GB of ram, and no less than 128GB storage.

      Reverse the trend of jagged-edge low-rez pictures and pack a 20mp camera for great sharp photos, with a 2nd lens to assist in low light.

      Drive the screen display to the edges to minimize bezels, and have two LOUD stereo speakers on the bottom of a minimal "chin", wrapping around to the bottom... that solves the problem of front-facing vs bottom-facing speakers.

      Put a thin fingerprint sensor on the BOTTOM EDGE of the phone, solving the "front vs back" fingerprint sensor controversy. It would be right between the stereo speakers.

      The phone itself would be about a half in thick, allowing a battery array giving typical users 4 or 5 days of battery life. The construction of the camera inside this thicker phone would mean absolutely no "camera bump" and even a little bit optical zoom (typically lacking on a phone camera)

      The phone itself is decently waterproof. You can't pop out a battery and switch as fast as on an LG V20, but the back plate of the phone is held on secure with 6 tiny Philips screws, making replacement of the battery a simple process even if not instant.

      There you go!

    1. Sure, status explains lots of sales. Others like me might want:
      1. Full, easy, seamless integration with my Mac laptops and tablets. Easy auto-sync of contacts, music, bookmarks, pictures; answering cellphone calls, iMessages, sms, FaceTime Vchat on computer or tablet; project phone, computer or tablet on big TV via Apple TV; and many more. Yes, I can do some or most of these things with my Android phone with a little work. But it does not seem as easy, automatic or seamless overall. I can use my Android 7 backup phone with my iPads and MacBook Pros and TV, and so does one daughter who uses Android 8 with Mac.
      2. iPhone is a fully integrated system, where software and hardware are designed to work together. Not software custom-configured differently for each phone's hardware. With other device integration tacked on, mostly via apps.So I am running the latest software and security patches on every iPhone and tablet. As soon as they are released by Apple and I confirm they're OK. And software updates take full advantage of the hardware capabilities of my iPhones. Delivering new capabilities faster and more effectively. One reason Apple introduces camera capabilities faster, for example.
      3. I prefer a uniform UI across all phones and tablets. I don't have to relearn the UI when I buy a new device, or remember the differences between every device. And I like the Apple iOS UI. I use these devices to get things done. iOS is to me a simple, beautiful UI that works smoothly to help me do what I want. I'm not trying to customize for the sake of it. I want my phone to just work easily, consistently, every time. I'm don't want to experiment with custom ROMs that let me mod but break functions and security.

      Everybody has their own wants and needs. I don't knock people who don't share my preferences, ideas or needs. I'm just glad I found the right phone for me.

    I prefer Android because I can easily copy any file I want to on or off the phone and seconds. The iPhone still has an extremely crippled interface unchanged from iPods which prevents you from copying anything other than photographs on and off the phone.

    1. I haven't dragged files from an Android phone to my computer in years. That used to be important for transferring music when I didn't use microSD cards. Now there are modern apps and cloud services that handle that. The cloud is the hub and the files are transferred to the phone and tablet. Buy a song, and its available in the cloud at the same time it hits the device. I guess there are a few people who store all their files on the phone and don't use a computer, but I don't know any.

      Delete
    2. "Now there are modern apps and cloud services that handle that"

      It's still a lot easier if you have a file to move to just move the file. Something easy on PCs, Androids, and... yes, Macs! And so intuitive ! As opposed to when I connect a thousand dollar iPad Pro to my PC and see what is available, it's almost nothing.... which really is a blunder, because an iPad Pro shouldn't be so easily showing its heritage as a hopped-up 2001 iPod.

      Which is exactly what happens when the files in the iPad simply aren't visible from a remote attached device.

      As for the cloud, well, that sorta works. But in the US we have intermittent weather. Verizon and AT&T will cover you for the cloud the vast majority of the time. T-Mobile... well, most of the time now. Sprint, only some of the time.

      For the cloud to be a truly reliable option (instead of just not there a lot of the time, or too slow a lot of the time) we need the telco's that truly blanket the nation with data service. We don't even have one yet, as all the discussion of Verizon's coverage gaps here will attest.

      And on top of that, the cloud is sometimes the same as just giving everything to everybody. Ask Jennifer Lawrence what she thinks of iCloud.

  17. I agree that Android has faster file COPYING than iOS for files that are not already in sync. You can connect to your computer, and just drag a music file to the desktop, for example. I like that, even though I find email faster for most of my Android new file transfers.

    Until 6 months ago, Apple’s approach was to let apps and services handle file management. For example, with iTunes (free for Windows), you can automatically or manually sync all your Music, Movies, TV shows, podcasts and audiobooks to all your Apple devices. Photos on iOS can do that for photos and videos, automatically or manually to a MacOS machine via iCloud. So that music file you want to copy is already accessible on your Mac or Windows computer if you wanted it that way.

    Many document types like mail, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, Automator, Preview files, quicktime files, script editor, TextEdit, iBooks, reminders and Notes can automatically sync to iCloud as well, so you don’t need to copy them from the phone when you want them. iWork files are stored in iCloud too. From there is is super easy to share documents with family members, for example, or to access them anywhere on the web. That still leaves other file types the are not synced by iOS unless the non-Apple app does it. For example, my MSFT Office apps sync to cloud services (OneDrive, DropBox, iCloud, etc).
    If people don’t like iCloud, they can use another cloud service (like iDrive) that puts ALL files on the web in the same file structure you had on the iPhone, iPad or Mac. A couple of clicks and I have the file, without connecting ever the iPhone.

    Six month ago at WWDC Apple introduced a new Files app (for iOS 11), a proper file management system that helps you organize and quickly locate and access files fast. Files are stored in iCloud, but you have normal file management features, like creating nested folders. It’s not as flexible as Android’s ability to manage files on the phone, but Files gets the job done quickly and easily for users.

      That's not how Files work. Files is essentially a redesigned version of the iCloud app, but with the ability to log into third-party clouds. Apple seems to want users to have the ability to own a device, and not make it dependent on another device to function. For the most part, iCloud takes care of that, but if you want to use other clouds, you can now more easily move files between them or within them. It's not as intuitive as Finder in macOS, but Apple's only been at this iOS thing for ten years; they've had more than thirty years to get Finder/macOS right.

      Delete
    5. Using the cloud doesn't remove your dependence on another device. The cloud isn't magic, it's just someone else's computer, and one that you need to pay to use either with cash or by being marketed to.

      Delete
    6. "That's not how Files work"

      Files is a little better than what IOS had before, but working with files is far more easier on the Android side of an Android-desktop connection than with "Files" in IOS... and on the desktop side of the connection, IOS devices still forfeit this with a "no show".

      "but Apple's only been at this iOS thing for ten years"

      Android has been around as long, and they got the file management thing right, on both sides, at least by the time of Froyo. And that was years ago.

      With the new "Files", working with files in IOS is "still brutal, and slightly less broken".

      Saying it is not how it works is pretty much saying "yeah, it is still broken"

      Delete
    7. Files app isn't broken; it works perfectly. Pull the synced phone file from the cloud, instead of manually connecting the phone first. New way vs. Old way.
      Old habits die hard, but that certainly doesn't make them better. Which is why the Android project originally required a keyboard (like a BlackBerry), and had to start a paniced crash project to develop touchscreen controls after they saw the iPhone.

      If you don't want to learn the simple, new way just use File Manager to copy the files from the iPhone.

    8. "Files app isn't broken; it works perfectly. Pull the synced phone file from the cloud, instead of manually connecting the phone first. New way vs. Old way."

      Well, not broken, but still crude and hard to use and not befitting especially of devices with "Pro" in the name.

      Cloud? Not an option in so much of the country. The far superior Android file systems uses both old way AND new way... I know. I use both the IOS and Android version.

      "Old habits die hard"

      Quickly moving files directly is a good habit that should never die: in so many circumstances it is much better than cloud. There's a fat chance that they will kill the useful file systems of the Mac, PC and Android and replace them with a crippled, hard to use version like IOS "Files"

      This isn't because they are old fashioned, but rather because a full-featured file system is far more useful.

      "Which is why the Android project originally required a keyboard (like a BlackBerry)"

      Not the best thing to bring up: the good hardware keyboards on phones still have far superior text entry compared to any mushy tap screen keyboard. So yes, in this case the old ways ARE better. Getting rid of the keyboard was one of Jobs' truly bad ideas (just like his irrational phobia of the stylus).

      "If you don't want to learn the simple, new way just use File Manager to copy the files from the iPhone."

      The new way is not simple, it is clumsy and difficult compared to a real file system... and yes it IS broken when you connect your iPhone to a desktop: you won't see all your files.

      Real "flames" over IOS still having a crippled kludge of a file system which makes even an iPad Pro seem like a hopped-up iPod.

      Delete
    9. "File Manager and File Manager Pro apps let you manage and transfer files on iPhone and with cloud services. Very nice."

      These require iffy and pricey commercial services which might not be there. With a real and useful file system like in Android, you don't need to do this, and instead you can directly connect devices and move files a lot quicker.

      ... while Android lets you use any cloud you want, if you choose.

      Anyway, the choice with Android is left to the user. As it should be.

      I admire iPhone hardware quality, but the crippled hard to use OS with its ugly messy home screen (no app drawer?) keeps me away from it.

    10. Using the cloud for everything whether it makes sense to is like using the US Mail to send a get a printout to a guy in the cubicle next to yours.

      If you need to share your data with the world, use the cloud. If you just want to get something from one physically adjacent device to another, just connect them. Android and PC and Mac let you do both. IOS is poorly thought out in this area and only lets you do one.

      Besides, Apple Cloud is famous for giving out private photos that people upload to it... just ask Jennifer Lawrence.

      And also, if the IOS Files method is so superior that simpler methods should be eliminated, why do IOS devices still let you plug into a desktop to copy photos?

      Yes, there are many slick and great ways that IOS does things. But the file situation is a feature-stripped kludge that Apple has clearly given little thought to for more than a decade

    11. LOL. The notion that anyone would abandon iOS or pick Android to get an outdated, obsolete manual file transfer capability is silly. Apps and the cloud can automatically handle all the file transfers that virtually all users need now. Enjoy your nostalgia, but it sounds like a weak rationalization of your choice, not a significant reason for others to pick Android over iOS. A feature that only geeks and a few old-timers would use.

      Delete
    12. The file system described above that is broken in IOS isn't outdated, but is a necessary and modern feature of most major OS's... Including MacOS.

      Very modern, not nostalgia: it just works. Apple simply forgot to put a useful modern file system in IOS, and you are defending this crippling as if it is good. That's illogical.

      There's no rationalization: a real full modern file system just works. That's why it is fully supported on the Mac. And I'm sure it is among the reasons Android is more popular than IOS.

      The cloud isn't everywhere: a file system that doesn't work if there is no cloud and lacks connectivity takes a back seat to the others.

    13. Even if you look at just the cloud, the Android system is far superior to the iOS system. Giving you great flexibility on which Cloud you can use, and where to get or put files on your tablet or phone.

    14. iOS can AirDrop files to the Mac without the cable. It's easier, not harder.
      Files and File Manager don't require the cloud to work. You can organize files on the phone or iPad and transmit them without iCloud or other cloud service.
      So much mis-information.

      Delete
    15. The above is misinformation. IOS lacks basic file transfer abilities present in other advanced filesystems.


      The ability to connect and transfer files between devices is a standard modern ability. You cannot simply say that a file system that is broken and doesn't allow this is better.

      I know. I use Android and iOS both. Transferring stuff with Android is instant and a joy. And it's always clumsy and difficult using iOS.

    16. File transfer is thinking small; old-think. Only a very small percentage of users spend time in the Android file browser these days.
      Mobile companies are hard at work developing and refining convergence capabilities. MSFT had the lead, but the failure of Windows phone was a major setback. Apple was second, and now is first with Continuity and Handoff, far in the lead. Apple devices have become more tightly entwined with features like Universal Clipboard letting you cut text on your iPhone and paste on to your Mac (developed almost two years ago). And Instant Hotspot. And iPhone Cellular Calls with any Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that works with Continuity.

      Android is still way behind, struggling to catch up. Android fragmentation means that most Android users will have to wait a long time and replace their current phones several times to get new convergence features implemented in Android.

      Delete
    17. File transfer is thinking big, thinking modern, thinking full featured and easy to use. It's why all but one major current OS has it.

      And even with fragmentation, it has worked great on Android for years. And works great now, and is much easier to use with the cloud as well as any other source.
