I've been patiently waiting for my work to include the iPhone X on its staff plan. With no idea when that was going to happen, I'd booked a trip to Singapore about a month ago (departing tomorrow). I knew I was going on holiday some time around now & was hoping to bring the X along for some better photo action than my 3.5 year phone. But I'd given up, thinking the 6S will have to do. Tuesday this week, work announces staff plans for the X . 4 months after release, due to some internal processing issues....normally takes ~6 weeks after the public release date for phones to become available to staff. Phone was express delivered yesterday. Case purchased yesterday, screen protector purchased last November (I planned early), SIM activated earlier this morning....& we're good to go! The timing of it finally being in my hands & working the day before departure is Edit... Oh & I've just noticed IOS 11.3 is out too... Downloading now. The stars have aligned!
