The iPhone X Is Hurting Apple’s iPhone 8 Pre-Orders, Analyst Say

It’s not a surprise anymore. We all know that people would always choose and buy the latest iPhone. We don’t know what’s Apple thinking why they release the iPhone X when iPhone 8 is still new in the market.

If you’re holding out for an iPhone X, you may not be alone, meaning the device is likely to be in high demand at the end of October.

Pre-orders for the new Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are underway, and unusually, even now you can still order one and receive it on release day. Analysts examining the data related to those orders say many people are holding back, and haven’t decided to grab Apple’s latest hardware yet. The reason? The iPhone 8 will only be Apple’s latest device for about a month, at which time the iPhone X will be released, and it’s a very different beast. The consensus is, Apple fans are waiting for the X, which means the real iPhone rush will start at the end of October.

Data published by analyst Gene Munster shows the new iPhone models had a one- to two-week delivery time over the first weekend after pre-orders went live, while some models still have a September 22 release day delivery date attached. It’s noted that compared to previous years, the more expensive but better-equipped 8 Plus also has a shorter lead time, suggesting either supplies are greater or that people are saving their money.

The evidence of a less-than-enthused response to the iPhone 8 continues. In previous years, some desirable new iPhone models have had a three- to six-week wait attached by this point, analysts at KGI Securities say. It believes the iPhone X is a prime reason why the iPhone 8 is so readily available. Pre-orders are traditionally placed by early adopters and hardcore Apple fans, who are more likely to be attracted to the iPhone X than the mildly updated iPhone 8.

The All-Screen Apple iPhone X is Here, And It’s The New iPhone You’ll Want

Everyone is hyping with the released of iPhone X from Apple. For those fans of iPhone, I bet you wouldn’t miss the chance to have this phone. But before that, you might need to know more about iPhone X.

Apple has commemorated the iPhone’s 10th anniversary with a special edition phone named the iPhone X. The announcement was made at an event on the Apple Campus in the Steve Jobs Theater by Tim Cook, who said, “It’s truly amazing how much the iPhone impacts the world every day.” The iPhone X has been the subject of rumor for many months, and now all the official details have been revealed.

Cook said the new iPhone was “the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone.” It’s not pronounced iPhone X, by he way — it’s the iPhone “Ten,” and the screen takes up the whole of the phone’s front panel. It’s made from surgical-grade stainless steel, with glass on the rear panel. It’s water and dust resistant, and available in space grey and silver. You can read our iPhone X hands-on here and we have two opinion pieces about it, debating why no other company made the iPhone X before Apple, despite none of its tech being new, and providing a list showing which phones originated some of its innovations.

The OLED display — the first in an iPhone — is called the Super Retina Display, and measures 5.8 inches, with a resolution of 2,436 x 1,125 pixels. Apple says it has cured problems with brightness and color accuracy that sometimes plagued OLED screens in the past, and has added Dolby Vision and HDR10 support for stunning video playback. It also features TrueTone dynamic white balance adjustment, a feature also seen on the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and the new iPhone 8 models.

The device is designed to be intuitive to use, despite having no button on the front, due to the screen’s size. It’s a swipe up to reach the home screen, or you can use raise-to-wake, or just tap on the screen to get started. These gestures work across the operating system, for multi-tasking, and to leave apps. Siri is still activated by voice, or by using the larger side button. A double tap on the side sleep/wake key activates Apple Pay.
