Friday in CE: The iPhone X Preorder Edition
So, iPhone X preorders started in the way early hours this morning, and things escalated rather quickly. The phone was literally sold out on all major carriers’ websites and on the Apple website within minutes. Within a few hours, wait times on the Apple website were already up to 5-6 weeks.
But there’s more to know about the iPhone X than the preorder status.
For those crazy enough to take the plunge on the new $1,000 phone—ahem, me—you better be sure to get a screen protector and heavy duty case on that thing right away. According to Apple’s service pricing website, the cost to repair or replace the phone’s screen is an astounding $279. That’s over $100 more than the cost to repair the iPhone 8 display.
