IPhone X: iPhone Upgrade Program customers get pre-order 'head start'

The new iPhone X is going to be hard to find

There are a five steps for iPhone Upgrade Program customers to get their hands on a shiny new iPhone X, and users can use the Apple Store App to complete the iPhone X pre-approval (steps 1-4).

Of course, Declutter is just one site, and not necessarily an accurate measure of total iPhone 8 sales and returns.

Three percent of respondents said they wouldn't get another iPhone as their next phone.

Apple iPhone 8 lineup made it to India earlier than usual this year. Cuponation, which is a savings platform, conducted a survey to compare prices of the iPhone 8 (64GB) in 20 countries, and came out with interesting findings. The 7 and 7 Plus account for 58% of sales in the quarter, much higher than the 35% for the then year-old iPhone 6S and 6S Plus in September 2016, and exactly same as the share for the then- year-old iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in September 2015.

According to carrier sources in Australia only a "small number" of the new Apple iPhone X will be available for the Australian market at launch in November 2017, despite a major shortage of components. Those devices, called the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S, and iPhone 6S, typically don't initially sell as well as the big updates. However, this latest rumor is juicy enough that it deserves a little bit of spotlight in the lead up to the iPhone X release.

However, the iPhone 8 is a bit of a different story.

"It seems when Apple announced the forthcoming iPhone X, it changed the market dynamic, and probably depressed demand for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus", CIRP partner Mike Levin said in a prepared statement.

The survey included 1,112 iPhone owners located in the U.S., UK, and China.

Last week Patently Apple posted a report titled "Apple's Supply Chain confirms that they'll meet iPhone X Demand for the Holiday Season", contrary to some of the doom and gloom reports that have been posted online.

Apple shredding its iPhone 8 production in half is a result of how poorly this and the iPhone 8 Plus have been performing in comparison to previous-gen models.

Suppliers have been struggling with components for the iPhone X's "TrueDepth" camera used in Face ID and "Animoji".
