It’s arguably one of the biggest tech launches of the year – and Apple being Apple have decided to unveil a series of huge smartphone devices to help kick off their traditional fall unveiling. However, there is still a large question mark over when the much-lauded iPhone X will actually launch – with rumors circulating that the huge pre-orders expected to be placed for the device may not all be met. If true, this could be devastating for several thousand iPhone fans who have been eagerly waiting to try out the monster new device’s various features and trappings. After all – there’s more than a few reasons why it’s selling for a dollar short of $1k.
However, rumors are circulating that it may be issues with the 3D sensors that could be delaying production. Apple, of course, are remaining tight-lipped on the matter – with the firm still keen to open their pre-orders wide as of October 27th. Rumors and predictions advise that the company may not even be able to meet demand for the premium device until early 2018 – meaning that fans could be waiting up to six months to get their hands on what is, for many people, a month’s wages worth of smartphone. So will demand be met as assumed, or could we all be looking at a further setback to what should have been Apple’s most momentous reveal ever – and while many fans of the brand and their line are more than happy with the results, some others aren’t so sure.
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, for example, have been hit with concerns as to just how popular they are in comparison with the forthcoming X – along with further concerns over just how different the new models are in comparison with the iPhone 7 that emerged the year before. That model, too, was remarked upon at the time as being too similar to the preceding iPhone 6. However, it’s clear that Apple have intended to create an entirely new experience for their users with the iPhone X looming on the horizon – but it’s the price tag that could be set to divide Apple fans in two.
Fans will aim to be getting their pre-orders in for the end of the month – though whether or not Apple will fulfil remains to be seen – have faith in the brand, iPhone massive!
