so us ordering at 3:01am (Eastern for me) and I always like to check the delivery dates after ordering to see how fast they sold out, but as of now, 3:30am, pretty much all still show 9/21 delivery. I went with the Max. This years phones not as exciting to most?

Well I ordered the 256 Xs Max and got a 1 to 2 week delay. And I ordered in like the first minutes. Was going for store delivery but got errors than went with home delivery and bam. Lol. Bull ****. Luckily I have T-Mobile and already had them on the line and I should get it on launch day. Hooray.

Weird, I'm getting all versions of the Gold XS Max being available for in-store pick-up on 9/21 in the Pasadena, CA store. If you're in that area, that's a good bet. Also, I think it's only for ATT models.

I looked through all the carriers and colors and storage seems like space black is the color of choice this year with silver being second. gold almost as popular as silver.
That was just for the max model

Probably, I have Tmobile and dont think they set aside a lot for us since you can only buy outright or on the IUP where as other carriers have more options. I ordered the Max 256 Space Grey, which could be pretty popular. I think silver is the one with the lowest demand. Not sure where Gold falls in line at.

Date not slipping like past years
Either Apple has enough stock on hand
Or people lost interest
Or the higher price

pretty disappointed with the gold. the band looks really good but the back looks like a blush makeup color. it could be popular with females though. If it was more like the band id like it

Depends on Carrier too, I was just checking and the At&t Variant has lots of supply and everyone else has nothing.

Visa blocked my card when I tried to purchase it on the US Store. Got impatient and bought it on the german store. I already hate myself for not saving the money but I am too impatient to wait LOL

Yeah I dont like gold, Space grey is my Color. But if this phone came in the blue that the XR is getting I would definitely go for that one. It's a beauty.

Dates have slipped now as was mentioned.

My thinking though in regards to lessened interest- it would make sense. Most iPhone enthusiasts purchased the X last year; and the XS doesn't really present a significant upgrade for those owners (unless jumping to the Max), being mostly a spec bump. Many will be happy to stick with the X.

Others who aren't serious iPhone fans are more likely to go for the cheaper XR.

if the phone came in the product red they offered the 8's in id be ALLLL over that.
Seems like they cant figure out red and stainless steel thats why its not offered. Id happily take a space grey band with red back too

As of 4:33 AM EST, for Canada, the only variation whose delivery date is not launch day is iPhone XS Max 512GB Space Grey.

Part of me is surprised as to how quickly the 512gb dates slipped. It was within the first 30 minutes or so in the states. Wonder if that many really sold, or how few Apple had ready to go.

I'm still seeing launch day delivery for the sim-free models of the Max. I was getting so nervous around 2:50 a.m. that I was pacing around my house waiting for the endless refreshing to start. I guess that wasn't necessary this year.

Not surprising only Max phones slipping. Even for ardent upgraders, the X to Xs isn’t worth the bother of upgrading.

These phones are too expensive.
Never thought I’d say this but at this point I wish Windows phones would come back at a cheaper price point and stir up competition.

Samsung charges about the same as Apple. We need a new player in this game.
