Apple says that it will make the iPhone X available to reserve online from 4th November, with customers who do so then able to pick-up their new smartphone in store.
Rather than having to pay up–front for an iPhone X, as you would with Apple’s usual in–store pick-up service, would-be owners will not need to pay until they arrive at their local store.
iPhone X vs iPhone 8 and 8 Plus: What’s the difference? Here's what you need to know.
Only two can be reserved per customer, with Apple asking that anyone who does reserve the iPhone X pick it up within a set 30-minute window. Photo ID is required to complete the transaction.
Availability depends on location, meaning that certain editions of the iPhone X will not be up for grabs.
It’s likely that major stores, such as Apple’s Covent Garden flagship, will have greater availability than smaller outlets.
For those who want to avoid the six-week wait Apple is currently listing online, this is a handy alternative to spending two days or more queueing outside an Apple store.
The iPhone X features new Face ID tech, an improved dual lens camera and all–new, all–screen design. Prices start at £999 for a 64GB model.
