As we outlined in our preorder hub earlier today, there are a few things you can do to get ahead of the game. Be sure to keep in mind that fastest checkout processes and to try your hand at carrier websites in addition to Apple. Also be on the lookout for a case to protect your pricey investment.
It’s also important to note that if you’re buying out right, there is some cross compatibility between the carrier models, which means you don’t necessarily have to purchase the model specifically for your carrier. More on that here.
Finally, Apple has confirmed that it will have in-store availability of the iPhone X next week on the official launch day, November 3rd. If you strike out tonight, you can try your hand at waiting in line, though even Apple has said you should plan to “arrive early.”
The iPhone X was originally announced last month and is a radical departure from iPhones of previous years. There’s an all-new design with a glass back and bezel-less front. You also get Apple’s new Face ID technology instead of Touch ID, while wireless charging is also supported for the first time.
