    This is really sad but I’m sure Apple has all of the serial numbers and they are going to be blacklisted and unusable. At least I hope that’s what’s going to happen

    Poor unlucky people who expected to receive their iPhone X tomorrow will see nothing but a delayed shipment.

    probably one of the dumbest things to steal.

    it's like going into a clothing store to steal the hottest clothing, with those ink security tags.

    An Apple spokesperson mentioned that the local customers will still receive their devices as agreed, which is honestly amazing to me.

    When they catch them, the should handcuff them and give them to the people in line. They don't call them scalpers for nothing

    Yep.

    If anyone bothered to read the entire article, it sounds like that 313 phone shipment was for walk in customers.
