UAE iPhone X pre-orders have up to six week dispatch wait
Apple's website is showing a five to six dispatch wait on its new iPhone X smartphone
Apple's iPhone X pre-orders began 27 October with the tech titan stating that the sales were ‘off the charts'.
The iPhone giant squashed initial rumours of there being a limited supply, and in a statement to ITP.net, a spokesperson commented on the UAE's pre-order status:
"We are thrilled to be taking orders for iPhone X, the future of the smartphone. We can see from the initial response, customer demand is off the charts.
"We're working hard to get this revolutionary new product into the hands of every customer who wants one, as quickly as possible."
The statement also revealed that despite there being a five to six week wait for the premium iPhone, Apple will continue to accept orders online. Additionally that the ‘iPhone X will be available at Apple retail stores on Friday, November 3 starting at 8 a.m., as well as from our carrier and retailer partners around the world'.
The five to six week has been extended from the initial 3 November set date. As of late various reports have emerged claiming that there is a supply shortage of particular components, along with the number of actual iPhone X devices that will be ready for launch.
