I haven't dropped by any local Apple Stores yet, but I did order a leather case for pickup in-store on November 1. So I imagine if they're letting people buy them before the 3rd, stores should be carrying them.

FedEx says mine is scheduled for delivery on Wed, Nov 1st. I'd assume the Apple Store will have them in stock that day since I got mine from the Apple Store App.

The color I want has a 2 to 3 week delivery now, I guess I'll go to the apple store Friday and see if they have any in stock. If anyone sees them there before Friday please let us know.

In the past they have had limited stock beginning on "launch days", but these were not advertised as being available for in-store pick-up online. I have wandered into an Apple Store when the iPhone 7 Plus was launched to find the new leather cases, for example, even though through the App they were not yet available. Therefore, it can't hurt to go early to an Apple Store and see what's there, but likely won't be on display until Friday for the iPhone X.

On a side note, I ordered a leather iPhone X case which had a delivery date of between Nov. 3 and Nov. 7, but is being delivered via FedEx tomorrow, Oct. 31. So shipments could improve over what is stated.

I'm interested in buying a leather case at day one in Hamburg. I tried buying from website with Delivery in Store, but it says that will be delivered on 9th. If I go to store on 3rd, will I find a stock, right?

Other question: should I do the queue with people that are there for the iPhone, or not? I already preordered it with delivery at home...

They don't have them in store yet but they are the same colors as the iPhone 8 cases. So if you are unsure of color, go see them in the store and order online.

My local Apple store didn't have them in stock when I was there today. Employee said they won't have them until Friday.

Just picked one up from local Best Buy. They had black and blue leather versions. Got the black.
I didn't notice Apple ones but they had quite a few 3rd party ones at the Best Buy store I was at. All much too expensive though for a piece of plastic. I bought a Spigen Hybrid from Amazon.

I was talking about Apple ones. I was surprised to see them too.

I ordered a Black Leather case this morning at 2:30am and its getting delivered tomorrow. All of this despite being listed for delivery of Nov. 3rd- Nov. 8th or store pickup on the 8th.

I say just order one up and you'll most likely have it by Friday.

Mine is arriving tomorrow. I just need the darn phone but it's not coming until Friday. I am absolutely excited!

In the last few years, I could walk into a store a few days before launch and they would have the latest leather case out the back.

Has anyone asked in store?

Orders the red today and it’s being delivered Wednesday despite the site saying November 8-10.

Yes, I asked. They said probably Friday but they couldn't promise anything and that they usually have a limited supply for the first few weeks. This data rings true with my experience of Apple Store iPad case availability soon after new product launches.

it's not about the color. I'll be in Hamburg for business and I have free time on 3rd morning, so I wanted to spend some time in the apple store for buying a cover from there, as an (expensive) souvenir J

I'm pretty much done with Apple leather cases. While new they look beautiful, there wear horrible. I usually like the look of leather as it wears and develops a patina. Not the case with Apple cases. I pre ordered a synthetic case from Apple and a Caudabe lucid clear, which i already have in position.

Ordered a saddle brown leather case from Apple for delivery Friday!

The camera cutout looks perfect with no extra gaps. iJustine had a white silicone on hers in her video and it fits perfectly.
