And just like that, iPhone X has sold out in most Apple Online stores worldwide. Right now if you attempt to pre-order an iPhone X any color or storage capacity, you will have to wait at least 4-5 weeks before your order gets dispatched. The estimated shipping dates went to over a month within 30 minutes of pre-order starting at 12:01AM PDT.
Apple Store was down before the pre-orders started, and didn’t come online until 12:03AM. Interestingly this year the Apple.com website was more responsive and performed better than the Apple Store app. Users had a faster and better experience ordering to though the website.
Update: The dispatch dates for iPhone X orders have now slipped to 5-6 weeks worldwide, including the US.
