You can see in the above chart how quickly wait times slipped.
For the top three carriers in the United States – Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile – all units available for launch day were sold out in just 13 minutes. Sprint’s launch day inventory disappeared soon after.
Just one hour after preorders began, all iPhone X buyers were quoted 4-5 week wait times. And by 8 a.m. ET, that slipped to 5-6 weeks across the board.
Apple is promising that some iPhone X units will be available for walk-in buyers on launch day next Friday, Nov. 3. But especially judging by this chart, those probably won’t last for very long.
Available in a black or white color, a 64GB version of the handset is $999 while a 256GB edition is $1,149.
