Totally haven’t been looking at cases and screen protectors months in advanced....
another potential benefit of the iPhone payment option is that you could potentially sell your phone in advance of next years release, this maximising any sale price offered, pay off your finance and then be ready to start again for the next pre-order!
you would need a device in the interim to tide you over
When will the X be in apple stores for display? I'd like to see it in person before I decide fully
Last year was a shambles for the IUP in the UK. On the morning of pre orders, the IUP part of the site didn't come up for about 10 mins by that time those who were paying outright from apple cleaned out the stock. By the time IUP went up most models were out of stock with no option to even get a time slot just a simple check back at 6am in 48 hrs. This was for the 7+ model.
I wrote a long letter to the head of the UK Apple dept (i might have also cc'd in Cook) to say how bad it was handled. I managed to get one about a week and a half later and a free leather case from Apple

I just find a lot of phones too small & fiddly to use.
Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus hands-on review: A beautiful consolation prize
It's true most people off these forums will buy the 8.
Probably not until November.
I thought the 8/8 plus were a reasonably solid upgrade, obviously they didn't warrant the price bump but that typical Apple.
So my Apps that use TouchID, banks, utilities and various others, wonder how long they'll take to adopt Face ID or if they even will? Edging towards iPhone X 64Gb Black, god knows when it'll arrive mind....
I think the 8 price bump was because 32gb was withdrawn. Wouldn't surprise me if we see a 32gb one next year that's what they have just done with the gloss back 7. Madness!
Same here can't be clamouring to buy the next best thing. A grand for a phone. Madness
Probably ages as I can't see them being that keen on it a security alternative.
I believe the transition should be seamless, given that it’s the same Authentication framework
I'm also pondering over the same decision.
I am just pondering over whether I need yet another phone (of course I don't) but I know I will get one anyway!
Hoping that there is some sort of pricing comes out from the carriers so I know what to do in advance but they will probably leave everything right until the end of October or launch date to release their pricing which limits what decisions I can make in order to snag a X.
Ah yes probably. Yeah so, didn't think that the 8 and 8 plus were that bad tbh. If anything I was a bit underwhelmed by the iPhone X given the price.
I think there is going to be a lot of people that talk themselves into accepting the expense of the X model and then find that they can't get hold of one
Ahh makes sense but wish it was earlier
I'm going to upgrade my 6 to the 8+ on the IUP and see what they bring out next year. Don't really want to spend a grand on the X and I'm not really a fan of the screen design with the notch.
Count me in too!
Hi! I live in Australia but will be landing in the UK on the 4th of November for a holiday. I'm looking at buyingth iPhone X I've calculated that, conversion included, it's cheaper for me to buy this in the UK (so long as I get the tax back at the airport). How would I go about getting one on pre-order from Australia and sent to my grandma's place so when I arrive it's there. Would a VPN on my laptop work to get to the UK Apple Store for pre-order or nah? Any tips would be great!
Sure a vpn should work. But also, from a laptop using a web browser you should be able to just switch to Apple's UK site. There's a link at the bottom of the page to choose other regions I think.
Try it out tomorrow - go through the motion of pre-ordering a 8 - see if you can get as far as the bit of the checkout.
(Although, wait until after the rush so you don't stop someone who actually wants an 8 getting in for the initial allocation)
If it doesn't work you've then got time to get a vpn set up.
Just from www.apple.com/uk
Remember that if you use your credit card and buy in GBP (£) you will have to be the credit card foreign transaction fee and you won’t get the most competitive fx rate converting Pounds to Dollars.
Also depending on how long you are in the UK for, if, as expected the stock is limited, you may not be able to get one for launch day
Great points! Thanks heaps. Just wanted to know my options. Good to know I have some
Again totally opinion, and the quote is obviously stating that the X is not an average consumers device because of its price therefore a lot of people will get the 8 over the X.
What’s the return policy on these phones?
14 days from delivery once opened?
