Demand for Apple’s iPhone X outstrips supply in minutes

People wanted the next big thing, and they rushed for it

If the Apple Store is any indication (which is most certain proves to be) the iPhone X is one hot product.

A month ago when the iPhone 8 went on pre-sale ahead of launch it was possible to log onto the Apple Website many hours later and still get delivery of your new device a week later on the official launch day.

Today, when iPhone X pre-orders opened people rushed online to place their orders.

However it was just minutes before the first week of delivery orders were exhausted pushing delivery out 2-3 weeks and after just 15 minutes orders were out to 4-5 weeks for delivery.

There’s no doubt the new technology on the iPhone X could mean a limited supply at Apple’s end too, but regardless that limited supply paired with the strong demand after an iPhone 8 launch seen by many as a “same same” looking device – we’re looking at getting big big queues at Apple Stores worldwide next Friday the 3rd when Apple makes stock available for those most keen.
