    At least I’ll have Super Mario Odyssey to keep me busy. Can’t wait til the 27th!

    I'm cancelling Christmas if I don't get my iPhone X by Dec 24.

    As they have said many times on this forum “First World Problems”. :confused:

    I‘ll wait until November 10th. Then I cancel and wait for September 2018.
    I even considered waiting for quality issues, but if I do not order on October 27th, I probably have to wait much longer.
    So ... probably ordering and assuming to skip the 8 and X altogether.

    If I don’t get mine on launch day, I plan to stand in line. I work in the same mall as the Apple store so I wouldn’t even be going out of my way.

    It's possible that Apple may not have ANY for walk in sales.

    And even if that wasn't the case, if you wait until launch day to wait in line, you're not getting any.

    I’m pre ordering for absolute sure. Waiting in line is a back up.

    Let’s face it, it is. If people only cared about the true meaning of Christmas the Western economy would probably fall apart. Christmas is an industry as much as it is a holiday.

    Assuming they allow any waiting in line at all. Some Apple stores in my area had 0 standby stock for 8/8Plus. Pre-order or nothing.

    If you don't order preorder on the 27th, you will have an extensive wait, guaranteed. Like early 2018 at the earliest without preordering.

    Yes, I agree. I'll try anyways, but have little hope in Apple this year.
    The only time I had to really wait for a delayed Apple product was the first Watch and surprisingly the iPad 3.
    Which was the first Retina iPad.

    Anything after Nov 3 at 8AM will be a serious fail for me

    I hated the iPhone x. Now I can't wait until the 27th to Pre-order it. But if you can't get my iPhone x by mid November, I'll just settle with getting an iPhone 8 plus.

    So Apple gets your money either way?
    I will not do that. I will wait fo the next phone.
    BTW, skipped every 2016/17 MacBook as well because of quality issues.
    (Keyboard, Screen, saw it first hand.)
