The iPhone X goes up for pre-orders today in 55 countries across the world including the US, the UK, Canada, India, Japan, Australia, France, Saudi Arabia, China, and Germany. Apple’s going as far as to coordinate the same time for the launch, making sure the handset goes live at 12:01 am PT in the US and 12:31 pm IST in India.
Anyone who’s been keeping track of the iPhone X knows that there’s an extreme supply-demand issue going on right now, so it’s best to book the handset as soon as possible or risk waiting till 2018 for it. It’s priced at $999 or Rs 89000 for the 64GB variant and $1149 or Rs 102000 for the 256GB one.
Buyers in the US can pre-book the iPhone X via a wide variety of carriers, retailers, and Apple itself. The last has an online store and Apple Store app to handle orders. In case things don’t go as planned, they can always camp outside their local Apple Store outlet like the good old days on November 3.
AT&T’s selling the 64GB iPhone X at $999.99 up front, $33.34/month for 30 months, or $41.67 for 24 months.

Surprisingly enough, Best Buy’s charging a $100 premium over the suggested retail cost for the iPhone X, vending it at $1099 (64GB) and $1249.99 (256GB). The monthly carrier plans don’t suffer the same fate though, so those might be a better option. Target and US Cellular are also on hand to fulfill pre-orders.
