Nearly Half of MacRumors Readers Polled Say They'll Pre-Order the iPhone X on Friday

Just over six weeks after the iPhone X was unveiled, pre-orders for the highly-anticipated device will finally begin on Friday at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time.


Of the nearly 2,500 readers who responded to our Twitter poll, 45 percent said they plan to pre-order the iPhone X as soon as Apple flips the switch. The remaining 55 percent of users indicated they will not be pre-ordering at this time.


iPhone X can be pre-ordered through Apple.com, but we recommend using the Apple Store app to complete the process as quickly as possible.

Apple's first batch of iPhone X inventory will likely sell out very quickly, so time is of the essence. Given consistent reports about the iPhone X being in tight supply due to production issues, waiting even five minutes to place your pre-order could result in your order being shipped several weeks or months later.

MacRumors has a live countdown on our front page that indicates exactly when iPhone X pre-orders begin around the world.

iPhone X will go on sale in more than 55 countries and territories on Friday, November 3. Apple confirmed that stores will have stock available for walk-in customers on launch day, but availability will likely be extremely limited. On the same day, the first pre-orders should begin arriving to customers.

In a separate Twitter poll earlier this week, the iPhone X in Space Gray with 256GB of storage proved to be the most popular pre-order choice among over 6,500 readers who voted. The least popular configuration was Silver/64GB.


iPhone X starts at $999 in the United States with 64GB of storage, while the 256GB model is available for $1,149.

Macrumors, if there was a pole that was on the site itself To vote, I imagine you would see a lot more votes for those who don't visit or are unaware of the Twitter account.

I think most people would agree I'm a crazy person who's on MacRumors way more than is healthy, and I didn't know this poll existed until now.

So your poll is self-selected for people even more crazy than I am, who are both nuts about Twitter and MacRumors.

It's nearly not half of MacRumors readers, it's nearly half of people that voted.

And here I thought no one would be buying it because the notch is “utterly unacceptable.”

Well 55% don't seem to be in a rush though. I'm actually surprised such a high percentage of people who follow macrumors are not planning to preorder tonight.

This is it... I’m prepared. My animal instincts are raising their feelers, like during a solar eclipse. We are predators, and this bit of tech is our prey.

Grocery Shopping: Check.
Movie Playlist: Check.
Loaded Steamroller: Check.
Pre-Approval: Check.

See you in the flip side. Party begins in 6 hours, ends promptly at 2:02am CST.

Nope. Already bought the 8.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s let other consumers beta test new tech for me. I’ll grab it in the next rev once it works correctly.
