The iPhone X may be very difficult to buy until 2018

The iPhone X may be very difficult to buy until 2018”

The report shows neither KGI nor other Apple investors seem to be worried that the lack of a gold iPhone X option at launch will impact on the number of iPhone shipments.

Last month, KGI's superb Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (who had the best iPhone X leak of the year back in February) predicted that Apple would ship 2 million to 4 million units of the Apple iPhone X during the third quarter.

Kuo also mentioned the reason behind why the iPhone won't be available for sale on time is because the company doesn't want to "cannibalise" the sales of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

We just hope that Apple will be ready to absorb the production time constraints in light of overwhelming hype and demand for its tenth anniversary iPhone. As for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the two handsets went up for pre-orders yesterday (September 15) in as many as 30 nations across the globe. The Home Button has been removed from the iPhone X, with Apple adding a new Tap to Wake feature which works alongside Raise to Wake.

With the iPhone enthusiasts showing extremely positive reception for the iPhone X owing to its standout features like the Face ID, bezel-less (notch-styled) display and Animoji, the device is expected to outsell in no time. However, since the firm's flagship smartphone will be going on pre-order for the first time starting October 27, with shipping starting from November 3, Apple will be selling zero units of iPhone X in this quarter (Q3).

Rather than having one shiny new toy to focus their attention on, shoppers are now split between ordering the iPhone 8 and waiting to hear feedback on the iPhone X once it launches in November.

Apple shares on Friday rose 1 percent to $159.88.
