iPhone X Available for Pre-Order in Canada on October 27

Share:

Despite continued reports of constrained supply of the iPhone X ahead of its November 3rd launch, Apple today reaffirmed that the “future of the smartphone” will be available to customers for pre-order on Friday, October 27 at 12:01 AM.

In a new press release sent to iPhone in Canada from the Cupertino company, the iPhone X will also be available in more than 55 countries, including Canada.

The smartphone will also be available in Apple Stores beginning Friday, November 3 at 8:00 AM local times, and stores will have the iPhone X available for walk-in customers that are suggested to “arrive early”.

This is certainly encouraging to see that Apple is confirming that its retail stores will have at least some iPhone X stock to go around, albeit for those who arrive first. In previous years, new iPhone models have completely sold out from preorders and have been unavailable for walk-in buyers on release day.

At a press event last month at the Steve Jobs Theater on its brand-new Apple Park headquarters, the tech giant unveiled the iPhone X. The smartphone is a major design upgrade for Apple, featuring a bezel-free OLED display and Face ID support for facial scanning. Apple’s iPhone X also comes with wireless charging and is the first from Apple not to have a physical home button.

    Of course they’ll take pre-orders in Canada on the 27th. Why wouldn’t they? They already listed Canada as one of the initial countries.

    What I’d like to know is if anyone ordering online (even at 3:01am) will actually have a November 3rd delivery date. I remember for the iPhone 6 no one in Canada who ordered first thing online received it on launch day. Everyone had a 3 week wait minimum.

    12:01 is California time, so it’s like Stupid o’clock here, right? 3:01am eastern, 4:01am atlantic?

    I’m glad i work from home on Friday…zzz

  • Joe

    I’m okay with a three week wait… what I’m not okay with is a 3 month wait lol

  • Julien

    Well I have a 6 Plus that I received on launch day… And I’m in Canada

  • Seb

    My iPhone 6 that I currently have was received on launch day.

    My bad, it was the 5s. Ordered it on September 20, 2013 at 3:05AM (EST) and had a delivery date of October 7-10.

    Looking back, it seems the 5s didn’t have a preorder option, it was just orders went live on September 20th, so maybe Canadian inventory was shipped to retail stores and not as much was available for online orders.

    Hopefully we will get our new phones on the 3rd this year though!

    what I wonder is what model colour and size will be the hardest to get? remember the jet black fiasco last year. Some had to wait several weeks even months to get one.

    Got any insight into the pre-order process with Rogers? I get a nice discount through work now, so for the first time in years, I won’t be buying outright.

  • Yes lol

    I preordered the 7 Plus last year..got it on release day. There is hope 🙂

  • aRhyno

    Can I preorder 2 phones from Apple in one order?

  • FragilityG4

    I would think Black 64GB will be the tough one

  • Julien

    Yeah! Since the 5s, the online Apple Store got wayyy better with the leadership of Angela. Some lucky canadians will surely get the iPhone X on the 3rd but if the rumors are true the supply will be pretty limited.

  • SOB

    Exactly. If they say it will come in March then I am going to plan B. IPhone 8.

  • SOB

    I hope they will have demo models in store to try out. I am sure the Apple stores will be more of a mad house on Nov 3rd

    The Space Grey 256 seems to be the most popular among the polls I’ve seen. There is no black.

    Check with Rogers…depending on the structure of your account, it may be very difficult. I had a discount with them a couple of years ago through my work, and the pre-order process was hell.

  • slicecom

    Wonderful. Might not even be worth the hassle vs paying up front. The savings aren’t THAT much over 2 years.

  • pg_72

    Carriers in Canada are terrible at pre-orders. Your best bet is to check with Apple and see if they can perform upgrades on your account in store…if there is an Apple Store close to you. Then, pre-order from them and choose in store pickup. When you pickup, inform them you’re upgrading with Rogers. Plan ahead though..check ahead of time to see if your account type can be done by them.

  • slicecom

    Thanks! I’ll check with my local Apple Store.

  • FragilityG4

    Semantics. I will eventually get the 256GB in Space Grey ????

  • slicecom

    Well, I checked, Apple can’t access my account since it’s corporate. Looks like I’ll probably order outright from the Apple store at 3am, and then try my luck with the Rogers upgrade at 8am. If I can’t get the Rogers upgrade, I’ll just go through with paying outright. Thanks for your help.

  • slicecom

    I received my iPhone 6 on launch day in Toronto.

  • pg_72

    You’re welcome! I’m in the same boat with Telus…seems you get in a position to get a good discount on your plan in Canada, and it comes at the expense of convenience with other other aspects, like pre-orders. I’ll just be buying outright…selling my 7 Plus should net me a good price, and I’ll keep my lower monthly bill.
