With just hours left until its arrival, first iPhone X orders have now begun shipping to customers as delivery estimates continue to improve ahead of the scheduled November 3 launch.

Apple started accepting preorders for the anticipated device last Friday, with the status of some early orders quickly changing to “preparing for shipment/dispatch”. MacRumors reported today that most orders have now been updated with a “shipped” status.

Additionally, some customers who were previously quoted a November 17-24 delivery estimate are now expected to receive their iPhone X around November 8.

“Many of these customers, but not all, are enrolled in the iPhone Upgrade Program and ordered a silver model,” notes MacRumors. However, shipping estimates for new iPhone X orders are currently around 5-6 weeks across most Apple Online Stores.

Because it’s already Friday in Australia and New Zealand, long queues have started forming at Apple Stores across the Asia-Pacific region. For instance, huge crowds gathered outside Apple’s store in Orchard Road ahead in Singapore, reports Channel News Asia.

Thousands of Australians are also expected to queue around Apple’s retail stores and carrier outlets this morning following record-breaking preorders for iPhone X, reports News.com.au.

Apple has said that its stores will have iPhone X available for walk-in customers tomorrow, but advised shoppers to arrive early.

Has your order been updated with a “shipped” status yet?

    Oh yeah!! Run, Run brainless sheaps to buy the new Apple’s toy. It’s so beatifull and so shitty. But it’s the latest shit right? Don’t forget to get your screen protector and your sturdy case for extra 150$ so you don’t break this beatifull and delicate flower. 🙂

    • craig

      sheaps? is that what the android auto correct changed it to 😉

      jokes aside, apple loves when android owners talk about their products good or bad, its all about publicity and hype, and as for android owners saying about how they have had most of the features the iphone x has got for years before, being angry or happy wont change the fact that apple products sell well, sheaps or not 🙂

      • bscaine

        I actually have used iPhone since very begining. That’s the phone I use now. My point is that Apple stops innovating to make their products better. They are just focusing on sales, how to sale more, make more money spending less. Think about it. Look for the break test compare to other phones. They are making this phones with the same old materials. Batteries, same. And no significant innovation. I hate android but I don’t like what Apple it’s becoming. Pay more just for cosmetics it’s all have come to. BR

      • craig

        ok you do seem to talk sense 🙂 i use apple products for the simple fact i just seem to get along with them a lot better but ive always said the same thing, apple are 1 of the most greedy companies when it comes to sales. they know people will pay so they dont care if some people will sell a kidney or drain themselves of blood just to get the latest product.

        as for the whole break tests, im kind of on the fence with that, if people want thinner devices there has to be a compromise, unless they make the next iphone from titanium and carbon fibre and charge people about 5,000 for it who kows 🙂

      • Vinnie Bones

        It’s about hype and marketing. They’ll have the same phone next year and upgrade the internals slightly.. and market the sh&t out of it and people will line up to eat it. Problem is I don’t see myself using Android..like.. ever!!!

      • Chinch07

        Sucks you’re both poor and a fanboy lol

      • craig

        poor as i wait for my iphone x to be delivered 😉

      • Chinch07

        Hahaha I didn’t mean to call you poor. I meant the guy above you. Totally clicked the wrong “reply”. I’m in bed with the flu trolling android fanboys. Please forgive me 🙂

      • craig

        your sins have been forgiven 😉 get well soon lol

      • Chinch07

        Haha thanks man

      • bscaine

        Ha,ha,ha Poor are those with your brains! Zombie boy

    • Dennis Hernandez

      150$ For a screen protector and a case. Buddy I don’t know where you buying your stuff.

      • bscaine

        You need to go to T-Mobile, At&t etc. Hey Craig tell me what’s new of this iPhone X besides stupid new FaceID and the new look as any china Android device. What about more resistant glass? for a change?

      • Dennis Hernandez

        Well buddy you need to branch out to other store because my silicon case with a promo code came out to around 5 bucks. spigen

  • pnh

    Yes! I put the UPS hold on it so I can pick it up on the way home from work! Christmas is now November 3rd. Who knew?

  • rc

    Yes same here. My estimated delivery when placed the order was Nov 17 but I got an email today that my item is on the way and will be delivered tomorrow!

  • Trason Landefeld

    Mine has gone from estimated delivery in 5-6 weeks to due to arrive between the 16 and 24th of Nov.

  • Vinnie Bones

    side note: my ONLY gripe with this phone is FACE ID – like If the cops get a hold of your phone.. they don’t need your consent to unlock it.. they just shove it in your face or if you’re getting robbed, after a good beatdown I can see the robber holding your eyelids open to unlock it hahaha. I think implementing Toud ID (on the back?) as well would be very good.

    • pnh

      …and the police or robber couldn’t do this with your thumb with TouchID why?

      • Vinnie Bones

        I thought there was a law regarding that (El Chapo’s case?)

    • Chinch07

      False. Holding down power and volume up until the power slider comes up disables Face ID until the next correct password input and police (at least in US) can’t force you to enter your password. PC Mag has a YouTube vid about iPhone X that goes into this. Apple did this specifically to combat what you mentioned above.

      • Vinnie Bones

        when the cops come running up to you.. nobody has time to hold power and volume, not that I have something to worry about, just they could also implement touch ID and Face ID (like Samsung). Just looking at your phone and “open sesame” isn’t ideal if you work at NSA or other government type job.

      • triggerhappypunk

        just close your eyes…

      • Vinnie Bones

        Who do you know gets arrested with their eyes closed?

      • Kappamello

        They won’t just shove it in your face immediately. Close your eyes later. Maybe they force it open somehow, not sure if they would do that. It is a bit more invasive than just forcing your finger on TouchID. Additionally, I recommend setting up Emergency SOS. iDB wrote about that. If you click your power down button 5 times it can notify your friends and police, but also instantly disables TouchID and FaceID.

      • Vinnie Bones

        notify the police that you’re getting arrested 😀

      • triggerhappypunk

        The bigger question is, who do I know that gets arrested?

        #thuglife

      • diggitydang

        I feel like this should be a Siri command. “SIRI! LOCK MY PHONE QUICK!” to disable the FaceID and make the user enter a password.

      • Vinnie Bones

        That’d be good too! since Siri can only recognize your voice.. or a special word like “DEEZ NUTS!!”

    • Furrnace

      Keep them eyelids shut…I thought I’d seen reviews of ppl testing it with eyes closed and FaceID won’t work unless you open your eyes. I think FaceID will be good, but will take some getting used to. No home button or TouchID is gonna feel weird at first, but from several actual iPhone X reviews I’ve seen, they’re loving FaceID and saying it works very well. We’ll just have to see.

    • Joshua Ventura

      How about this Vinnie? If you are so worried about FACE ID, then how about you just disable it, stop complaining, and just use passcode.

      • Vinnie Bones

        How about this Joshua? you don’t tell me what to do.

  • PoleGirl

    Yea…they totally screwed me over!! They sent me a confirmation email for Nov 3 delivery, and then randomly changed it to Nov 17-24 yesterday!! WTF?? Chat is clueless…even told me to just got pick one up at the Apple Store tomorrow…lmao. OK. A supervisor was supposed to call me back yesterday…so far nada. Not cool, Apple. Not cool at all. ? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9f40310ca571ca555e5af02d0b3afc0632e1650dd23102eeb97f61c74c739cca.jpg

    • Lewis Gale

      Yeh same I was told 3rd and now I’m by the 10th, even booked the day off for arrival as the postman always seems to post my post elsewhere.

      • PoleGirl

        Nice. I’ve used live chat twice, submitted a callback for a supervisor (what good that’ll do who knows), and right now I’m on with a live tech, she is escalating my callback. Said because I have an actual confirmation email with said date, they will be able to expedite the shipping. Whatever that means. I still have to wait for some supervisor to call me back…and go from there. My biggest issue here is that if they would have initially confirmed my delivery as Nov 17 or whatever, fine. But that’s not what they did. They confirmed Nov 3, and then changed it on me 2 days ago. That’s horsecrap.

  • JAlves11

    My order says: “Your order was shipped on 11/2” since October 30 lol However, it was stuck at Fedex in Menphis, until today. Now its on its way to my localion.

  • Furrnace

    Still 17th – 24th. Ugh. And I placed my order within the first 3 mins of the website opening up (seemed like it didn’t open until 8 mins after midnight PT, not sure about others). I just kept refreshing over and over. My friend’s got bumped from Nov 17th to Nov 8th. Fingers crossed.

  • Salim M Tadros

    Mine shipped on Oct 29th And has been at the FedEx facility in Memphis, TN since supposedly arriving tomorrow, can’t wait that long ?

  • Dennis Hernandez

    Yes!!! The original date was 17 to 24 of November for delivery, now is November the 8th.

  • Lewis Gale

    Don’t suppose anyone knows if you can change the flashlight app on the lock screen? I have no use for it lol

  • Andrew Lee

    Nah, status is still “Processing Items” and delivery from 13/11 to 20/11. No change since I made the order on 27/10.
