The iPhone X Sold Out In 17 Minutes
Right now, people who order an iPhone X from Apple will have to wait 5-6 weeks to have it delivered.
First-day iPhone X deliveries in the United States from Apple were mostly sold out in 17 minutes, and were totally gone in 38 minutes.
Many people who wanted the new iPhone X on the first day it was available were disappointed when shipping times for pre-orders slipped early Friday morning.
Pre-orders scheduled to be delivered on the first day, November 3, seemed to sell out quickly, at least from Apple's online store.
