iPhone X shipping pushed back, repair costs revealed
The iPhone X was launched last month and finally went on sale yesterday, albeit to an unsatisfying conclusion, as prospective buyers realized that Apple's most news-worthy offering in years had been sold out in minutes—a situation which has led to scalpers offering the phone with exorbitant premiums of over US$500.
Those who were lucky enough to snatch one of the few available devices are likely to receive theirs at the end of this week, after the device's official launch on November 3. It's not all rosy for those on the other side of the fence, however, as they may have to wait for five to six weeks to receive theirs.
Meanwhile, Apple has revealed pricing for repairs of its new devices.
Of course, you also have the option of paying for AppleCare+—smartphone insurance, basically—which highly subsidizes the aforementioned costs. US$199 for AppleCare+ for the iPhone X, for example, would reduce the bill for screen repairs down to just US$29, and the one for any other damage to US$99.
