“If you’re itching to get your hands on Apple’s upcoming iPhone X, you’ll probably want to be ready to hit the ‘buy’ button at the exact moment the clock turns to 12:01 a.m Pacific Time on October 27, the date and time when iPhone X pre-orders are slated to open up,” Yoni Heisler reports for BGR.

MacDailyNews Take: If only that were all it took!

“Otherwise, you may have to wait a few weeks, if not months, before Apple’s next-gen iPhone arrives on your doorstep,” Heisler reports. “In fact, some analysts believe that Apple won’t be able to fully meet iPhone X demand until the spring of 2018.”

“With the iPhone X pre-order and release date steadily approaching, the iPhone X is finally starting to make a few appearances out in the wild,” Heisler reports. “We highlighted a few of these instances last weekend, and now there are a few more examples to show off for your viewing pleasure.”

“Ryan Jones, who formerly worked at Apple, managed to get some quick hands-on time with the iPhone X over the weekend,” Heisler reports. “Most notably, Jones relays that the somewhat controversial notch is hardly something to get riled up about. On a related note, there are rumblings that the notch is much less of an eyesore when using the device as opposed to staring at it in photos.”
