APPLEApple iPhone X stock boost ahead of release date
The iPhone X release date is just around the corner, with Apple’s high-tech smartphone launching around the world this Friday November 3.
The iPhone X is Apple’s biggest ever shake-up to its trailblazing smartphone’s iconic design.
Gone is the home button and fingerprint sensor, making way for a dazzling screen that almost takes up the entire front of the device.
The iPhone X, which has been dubbed the future of the smartphone, features a vibrant 5.8inch OLED screen and a hugely advanced front-facing camera.
Analysts are expecting the iPhone X to fly off the shelves, with one predicting it to be sold out into 2018.
And ahead of the iPhone X release date, Apple has launched a new tool which should make it easier to pick up stock.
Apple will be activating their Reserve and Pickup system in select countries for the iPhone X.
The tool allows customers to reserve an iPhone X online and select a time period to go in-store to pick one up.
Customers can even choose thirty minutes ahead if they’re in a rush to get their hands on an iPhone X as soon as possible.
If someone who has reserved an iPhone X misses their pickup window, the device becomes available to another buyer.
