Demand for iPhone X is "off the charts" despite the exorbitant price tag

It has been a day since Apple started pre-orders for the iPhone X and the customer response is overwhelming. In a statement, Apple claimed that the response was "off the charts" and it is working hard to increase production of the iPhone X as quickly as possible. 

“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. We will keep accepting orders online, and 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.”

At the time of publication, Apple Store Singapore states shipping dates of 5 to 6 weeks for the iPhone X in the two colors and storage options. If you did not manage to manage to pre-order the iPhone X yesterday, don't worry as there will be a limited number of sets at Apple Store Orchard Road for walk-in customers on 3 November. Apple encourages walk-in customers to arrive early.
