    Do you think the general public is very aware of the 10/27 preorder date and such? Also, the phones generally won't be for sale in stores until January, so will the average customer really be looking for the phone over the next few weeks?

    I think the pre-order volume will be so high that the delays will be significant.

    I think October 27 will be a day that many are Fully aware of the iPhone X preorder date and waiting is now just part of acceptance, but it won't stop the madness of this new iPhone for those who want it.

    Or, the stock levels so low that the delays will be significant.

    It's definitely a holiday phone. They probably won't meet demand at launch, but hopefully they catch up in time for Christmas.

    Both to be honest, I think we'll see a massive turnout for the pre-order coupled with the exceedingly low volumes. It will be a perfect storm of not getting the iPhone x imo.

    Id say the people that order at midnight are the same that do on every pre-order launch (plus maybe a few more this year because of the X). Its a die hard move to wait up and order. Most 'Normal" iphone folks don't order like we do. haha..

    I think this year is a little more unique though. I think you're going to find out there are those who are willing to make the sacrifice to pre-order as quickly as they can to get this new iPhone, being it's a major revision with the X.

    It will, without a shadow of doubt, attract a higher number of launch day pre-orders than any iPhone since the 6. But anybody who takes decisive action to make sure they get as soon as physically possible (i.e disrupt their sleep routine to pre-order) isn’t the average iPhone user. The vast VAST majority of iPhone users are likely only borderline aware of the X and the pre-order date. It just won’t be on their radar until they’re ready to upgrade.

    I believe the iPhone X hype has cooled a bit. It will more than likely ramp back up the week of pre-order.

    I think the demand will surprisingly be a bit lower. Some held off. Others got the 8 / 8 Plus.

    Scalpers and fans alike are lining up waiting for pre-orders to open.

    EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON STOCK!

    From what I read, if you do not get it ordered in the first minute of so, you will not see it till 2018. :eek:

    The 8 will not distract the one who want the X!

    I think most people who want to have it first (like us) will be up to pre-order and have the date memorized. I think we'll see a lot of pre-orders.

    There will be some in stores on release day. Maybe not many, but there will be some.

    I am pretty sure hype is only going up. No matter how loud or how silent.

    I'm eager!

    Work just emailed a Restriction notice - no severe work is to happen during the X launch.

    It's building.

    The stock must not be super low otherwise they would be cutting countries off the day 1 list.
