Apple's Upgrade Program offers a 'head start' on iPhone X

Get a head start on your upgrade to iPhone X on 10.23.

Some analysts said that the sales of the iPhone 8 are slow, but I think we all know that it is probably due to the iPhone X as that's the phone that everybody would want to own and is waiting for. If the report turns out to be true, it would be the soonest that an iPhone production has been slashed so dramatically. The 10th-anniversary iPhone with a bezel-less OLED display, a TrueDepth camera that supports Face ID, wireless charging, and augmented reality would be up for pre-order on October 27. The company is scheduled to report its next quarterly earnings results after the market closes on Thursday, November 2nd.

The iPhone X will be hard to find during the holiday season despite being the most expensive iPhone ever.

iPhone X's dual-camera system is an unexpected bottleneck.

So if you're eligible for the criteria, all you have to do is download the Apple Store app on your iOS device and select the iPhone X model that they wish to purchase and get it pre-approved for a loan ahead of the pre-order launch.

The iPhone X is set to launch next month and it looks to be a attractive phone that is packed with features.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has sent out his latest report on Apple to investors.

Apple is anticipated to report its quarterly earnings on November 2, so may be it will give some revelations into iPhone X pre-order quantities and supply then.

The silver lining is that Kuo expects Apple to overcome these challenges in short order, and production should ramp exponentially in November. The new versions of the iPhone X are reportedly codenamed Lisbon and Hangzhou which is a departure from Apple's general naming scheme.

It's going to be a tough couple of quarters for investors as Apple scrambles to ramp production. The supply shortages of major components should be resolved in the next few weeks, said Kuo.

Preorders for previous iPhones have typically been higher than this, with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus garnering more than 4 million preorders in its first 24 hours.

To make the information available to all its customers, Apple has started showing this on their official website and the App Store app. This is far too less than the expected demand of 40 to 50 million units.

In a separate report, the Economic Daily News says that Apple is planning to launch a couple of affordable smartphones in China next year. It is unclear whether the devices would be China-exclusive or would also be available in other countries. On average, equities research analysts predict that Apple Inc. will post $9.01 earnings per share for the current year. Apple is the fifth largest smartphone company in China, lagging behind the local vendors. They will likely still be premium handsets, though they would cost less than the iPhone X. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter and how you can pre-order your iPhone X.
