    No amount of large bold text can stop APPLE.

    Welcome to the niche of the niche of the niche. ;)

    So we can go back to ignoring your opinions as usual....

    It's entertaining to see that it did exactly that. 3-4 weeks shipping dates a few minutes after ordering opened, 5-6 weeks a couple hours after.

    What's this thread about anyway, to start arguments? There seems no point to it.

    And as I've stated before.. the preorders are still up more than 24 hours later with a reasonable delivery window of "5-6" weeks.
    Usually when iPhone's get sold out during preorders they go to 6-8 weeks or Currently unavailable.

    And, Apple is updating a vast majority of orders from 2-3 weeks to Nov 3 Delivery. So essentially, the current "5-6 weeks" window is actually "3-4 weeks".

    This speaks volumes. They're doing everything they can to make it look like a success.

    You mentioned it would be sold out in the first 24 hours, so don’t try to modify after the fact. It was sold out in 5-30 minutes after preorders started depending on who you purchased it from.

    ETA: meant to say wouldn’t be sold out in the first 24 hours.

    If you've followed previous product preorders, you would know 6-8 weeks / currently unavailable means they've run out of initial batch of inventory.

    Wow. The amount of wrong in OP's statements is impressive.

    You embarrassed yourself, stop digging the hole. You were proven wrong very publicly, you look like an idiot.

    Apple never lists a new product as currently unavailable. They always have shipping estimates. Care to post anything else that is wrong?

    People on this site lack critical thinking skills. They make predictions and draw conclusions based on no hard evidence or data, then interpret any outcome to support what they said.

    Conveniently forget the Note 4 cost nearly $900 3 years ago and the Note 8 costs a cool $959. We are talking slightly more expensive and people freak out.

    Get a Nokia.

    Wow where to begin with the amount of wrong I’m not only the initial thread post but also this one!

    Yea right the iPhone X that very quickly slipped in shipping dates and has even caused Apple to come out and officially say “damand is off the charts” is a complete failure :rolleyes:

    They’re “doing everything they can to make it look like a success” by reducing shipping times? Do you even read what you write?

    The funny thing about this thread is, and this is based on the presentation and aggressive conviction of both of the OP's posts, is that it seems like he's angry with the X and is really, really pissed. This is for some reason personal, so much so that it warranted a thread. It's just a phone bud, who cares?

    Could you imagine Apple displaying a more accurate delivery time of "3-4 weeks" on preorder page of their flagship device after more than 24 hours, and how the public would perceive it if that were the case(that it's a luke warm launch) ?

    Basically they're displaying "5-6 weeks" on the preorder page for marketing purposes, when in fact the actual delivery time would be ~3-4 weeks? (see previous posts for more context)

    Parenthetical insertions come before punctuation.

    Wow. You're a conspiracy theorist. Basically, you were wrong with your very large-font post. Own it.

    3-4 weeks is still indicative of the initial batch being sold out. No one gets up at midnight to order a phone that won’t arrive for a month.

    Your really running with a conspiracy theory, it’s simply not how it works. You were wrong just admit it.

    If they had more stock it would ship for Nov. 3 - I'm confused about what's being discussed here. If there's no stock, the dates get pushed until they can manufacture stock.

    What is the confusion here? It passed the Nov 3 date in about 10 mins by my count, so initial stock sold out in 10 mins. Waiting until the week after means no more stock. If it was just a matter of they can't ship that many at once, the date would show the Monday after Nov 3, but that's not the case.

    Thus, initial stock sold out in 10 mins. Not sure how there is any other way to interpret these facts.

    Lol go home. I’m sick of all you wanna be analysts and commenters...

    As if the factory stopped producing X’s after November 3rd ... the batch is not ‘initial’ junior it’s on going

    Correct...you don’t have to pre-order if you are willing to wait on delivery til mid-December”

    I love how you are now requoting your amended posts in a failed attempt to save face. Just admit you were wrong and move on.

    --- Post Merged, Nov 2, 2017 ---
    “iPhone City” is capable of producing 500,000 iPhones per day. The parts issues with the X have been greatly resolved during the month of October (20% pass rate to 50%). It is safe to assume that lead-time will decrease.
