iPhone X Availability Improving at Apple Stores Around the World

Just over three weeks after the iPhone X launched, availability at Apple's retail stores is steadily improving around the world.


Apple's in-store availability tool reveals that the iPhone X is available for walk-in customers to purchase today in several major cities in the United States, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco, although supplies vary by exact carrier, storage, and color.

Apple analyst Gene Munster, in a research note with Loup Ventures, said iPhone X availability jumped to 16 percent over the past seven days, compared to just two percent in the week prior. The data is based on daily monitoring of roughly 50 percent of Apple's stores in the United States.

Likewise, in Canada, select iPhone X configurations are available today at Apple stores in major metropolitan areas such as Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Montréal, Ottawa, Québec City, Toronto, and Vancouver.


A spot check of iStockNow.com revealed limited iPhone X availability for same-day pickup at Apple stores in Australia and Turkey as well, but supplies fluctuate throughout the day. Many stores receive new stock around 6 a.m. local time each day.

Apple's supply chain has addressed issues with iPhone X production, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, so in-store inventories should continue to increase. Likewise, iPhone X orders placed on Apple.com are now estimated to ship in just 1-2 weeks, down from 5-6 weeks on launch day.

We still recommend calling your local Apple store ahead of time to confirm iPhone X availability, as supplies continue to sell out rather quickly.

I have a 6S and I would really like to upgrade to an iPhone X. Unfortunately there is no way in hell I am forking out $1550.00 plus 15% HST for an iPhone. I really think that Apple's price point on this phone is just nuts. Maybe I'll go get an 8, or just hang on until next year.

I'm more than happy with the 8 plus, won't be upgrading until the notch is gone, that thing looks ridiculous.

It’s because people are returning them in droves and no one is buying it because of the notch. It’s a total flop.

The availability is all leftover unsold stock.

I wonder if people get on BMW's site and complain about the price?
If you don't like the price of something buy something else, what is complaining going to do?
I love my 8+ and will be getting the X at some point. :)

Well considering what else exists for the money and in many cases, for much less money, the iPhone X is a Ford family sedan with a cracked windsheild at the Price of a BMW.

Ok so don't buy it! We buy iPhones because we think they are best, if you don't, buy what you think is best.
What does complaining about the price do?

Iphone X and its stupid notch is a FLOP. For a major design change we should be seeing inventory shortages till' February 2018.. get rid of the stupid notch.. $1200 is too much for a phone that can’t do two apps at once, Total FAIL

You forget Apple has supply chain genius! They’re cranking out 15 million a month of this monster hit.

The notch will be around for years to come, it might be best to try to accept the things you cannot change.

This is plain polemic and you know it.

People these days blow everything out of proportion. Just because they can. Or because they can't have their shiny new toy although they WANT to. So they start making up excuses and start downgrading stuff with over-the-top comparisons.
