    Apple's website now lists iPhone X availability at its retail stores in the United States and several other countries around the world.

    Simply visit the iPhone X purchase page for your country from the list below, select a carrier if required, choose a color, and then click on "Pickup: Check Availability" below your desired storage capacity.o Australia
    o Canada
    o France
    o Germany
    o Italy
    o The Netherlands
    o Spain
    o Sweden
    o United Kingdom
    o United StatesA window will pop open with iPhone X availability--if any--at nearby Apple stores based on your ZIP or postal code.

    At stores where the iPhone X is available, customers can complete the checkout process and reserve the device for same day in-store pickup. We recommend bringing at least one valid government-issued photo ID with you.

    At the time this article is published, for example, the iPhone X is available for pickup today at several Apple stores in the Los Angeles area. However, many countries outside of the United States don't have any stock today.

    The tool is also a good indicator of iPhone X availability for customers who are planning to walk into a store and purchase one, although in most cases it's more convenient and guaranteed to reserve one for in-store pickup.

    In the handful of countries outside of the United States listed below, Apple also resumed its similar Reserve and Pickup system today.o Belgium
    o Canada
    o Mexico
    o Switzerland
    o United Arab Emirates
    o United KingdomStarting at 6:00 a.m. local time across Canada, for example, the page came online and allowed customers to reserve their desired iPhone X configuration at a nearby Apple retail store at full retail price, with payment completed in store.

    iPhone X supplies were depleted within just minutes, and the Reserve and Pickup page now advises customers to check back again at 6:00 a.m. local time tomorrow. If you refresh periodically, however, sometimes a few models appear.

    Apple's Reserve and Pickup system outside of the United States

    iPhone X pre-orders began October 27 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time, and within just minutes, shipping estimates slipped to 5-6 weeks around the world. The estimate has since improved to 3-4 weeks for orders placed today.

    Given the long wait time for online orders, trying to purchase an iPhone X with in-store pickup or as a walk-in customer may be quicker options, and Apple's availability tool makes it easy to check supplies without leaving your home.

    Does going through the reservation system require payment online or just entering card details with payment in store?

    Looking to purchase another on multiple cards.

    Wouldn't let me reserve one because I have a Pre-order on same number. Wasn't going to risk cancelling pre-order to reserve one. Glad I didn't because when I looked back a minute later, there was none left.

    I'm so relieved that Apple is keeping stock steadily coming... those scalpers need to rethink their strategy now.

    What's your shipment date? I suppose there will be stock at least by next weekend...

    You can get a T Mobile version w/o a number attached. T Mobile unlocked can be used on T Mobile and AT&T. I had to do this because my AT&T would only allow me to buy 1 phone through them and I can't buy through Apple due to having a business account. My workaround was a T Mobile unlocked from Apple.


    Just checked and every versions/color/carrier is still available in the Denver area except Verizon SG 256GB. You can get it in 64GB. Which seems overkill as it is. At least for me. My wife wanted SG so she ended up with a 256 because they were out of 64 at my store. And $150 more for that much storage at this point in time is not too bad and I don't see any downfalls to 256 except the increased price.

    11/17 - 11/24. ATT service confirmation check kept failing so I watched my ship date slip later and later every time I tried. Finally got through on 10th attempt

    This is the most awesome thing Apple has ever done during the major product launch. Kudos to Apple and hope to have this happen in every single incoming iPhone to stop scalpers and resellers from ripping people off.

    Very fortunate to be able to take advantage of this right after the launch day. This launch was awesome. Thanks Apple.

    The available stocks decreased quickly right after I announced this event on some forums.

    How unethical that the black 256 gig ATT is available in stores right now (on the other side of the country), and I my order was processed 8 minutes after it went on sale and I still have to wait another 2 weeks. They should just send them to those who have been waiting.

    I originally had a ship estimate of 11/17 to 11/24. Now my order was pushed to 11/20-11/27! Has anyone else had this happen?

    I still am blown away by how easy it was to get an iphone 8 this year, i'm usually up at midnight fighting with the servers to preorder every year, but this year i said i'd wait to see the reviews on FaceiD......got antsy and stopped by my nearest verizon and they said they had plenty in stock, which one would I like.....I was floored as there was nobody else in there purchasing one, and this was 3 hours after they opened.......loving it so far!

    I am in the same boat Devil Dog. I stayed up past midnight last week to order a phone x only to get a 17-24 ship date. This morning at 1000 I checked availability for the X and every store in western Washington had phones in stock. I canceled my order and at 1400 today I go pick up my new phone.
