iPhone X: If you get your iPhone X, don’t drop it. It’ll cost $279 to fix

iPhone X: It’s real, it’s here, and it’s very expensive. After months of rumor and speculation, followed by the biggest pre-launch leak ever, Apple finally revealed the iPhone X during the company’s annual fall press event in September.

This is a radical departure from the form factor of every other iPhone out there, including the brand-new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. It comes with a jet-black edge-to-edge OLED screen topped by a TrueDetect camera system that enables a brand-new Face ID unlocking system and Animoji features.

Pre-orders started on October 27, and we won’t know everything about the iPhone X until we can get our hands (and faces!) on it. For now, we’re here to answer all of your questions about the new iPhone X.

Editor’s note: Pre-orders are live for the iPhone X, with shipping times already slipping to December for most models. Also, Apple has announced that non-AppleCare+ screen repairs will cost $279.

What’s the latest?

Apple started taking orders at 12:01 a.m. Pacific on Friday, October 27. As of the morning of October 27, Apple.com says the ship time takes 5-6 weeks. It officially launches on Friday, November 3, and Apple will have limited numbers of the iPhone X in all of their retail stores for walk-in customers at launch. However, Apple advises that anyone who wants one should arrive early. The Apple stores will open at 8:00 a.m. local time on November 3. 

If you’re participating in Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program, Apple recommends that you go through its pre-approval process before the pre-order starts. If you placed a credit freeze with the major credit bureaus in wake of the Equifax hack, you may have to temporarily thaw your account to complete your loan, so it’s important to go through the pre-approval process ahead of time.
