Earlier this week Apple announced their new iPhone Xs and Xs Max smartphones where they also announced that pre-orders would begin on the 14th of September (today), and it is also expected to begin shipping out to customers the week after. For those who are interested, you’ll be pleased to learn that pre-orders are now live via Apple’s website.
If you’re still thinking about it, you might want to move fast because it seems that shipping estimates of the new iPhones have already started slipping. For the most part it appears that the estimates have slipped to about 1-2 weeks, meaning that you might only expect to get it after the 21st of September. We expect that these delays will only grow the longer you wait, assuming that these phones prove to be a bigger hit than their predecessor.
The shipping dates will vary from model to model, storage size, color option, and your carrier of choice, so it really depends on what you choose. However for those who are buying it SIM free, meaning without being tied to any carrier, it seems that you will still be able to get your hands on it on the 21st of September, but you will need to pay full price upfront for it.
Apple’s new iPhone Xs will be priced starting at $999 for the 64GB model, while the iPhone Xs Max will start at $1,099 for the 64GB model.
