Did you pass on the iPhone 8 so you can cash out on that shiny, bezel-less iPhone X? It’s go time this Friday, and according to some reports, it’s not going to be easy to get one. In other words, if you’re still thinking about where and how to get one on Friday, you’re already too late. We’ll help you figure out ahead of time whether you need to keep those refresh fingers warm and order online or throw on your best turtleneck and go line up outside your local Apple Store!
But before we get to the deals, let’s get the logistics out of the way. Preorders start Friday, October 27 at 12:01 AM PDT — that’s when you’ll want to be online trying to ram your order in along with millions of your peers! If you’re going to go the turtleneck route, you’ve got more time. Both Apple and the carriers will stock some iPhone X units in store on November 3, but with the expected demand, you’ll need to line up hours ahead of store open for a chance to get one.
If you don’t order one directly through Apple, you’ve got lots of options. The iPhone X will be available through AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Comcast’s new Xfinity Mobile service. We’ll go through the cost of the phone (all prices for the 64 GB model) and any deals those carriers are offering, then let you know what Apple’s got for you!
