Apple will start accepting reservations for the iPhone X for its walk-in customers start from November 4 but only for its customers outside of the United States.
The company will offer the Reserve and Pickup option to its customers in Australia, Belgium, and the United Kingdom from 6:00 a.m. on November 4, while in Canada, Hong Kong, Mexico, Switzerland, and the United Arab Emirates, the option will be available from 8:00 a.m.
Through the Reserve and Pickup option, customers can reserve any variant of the iPhone X they like and then pick it up from their nearest Apple retail store after paying for it. For verification purposes, the customer is required to show a photo ID card issued by the government.
After reserving the handset, it must be picked up within 30 minutes otherwise the reservation will be cancelled. The variant of iPhone X you reserve will depend on its availability and vary by location and stores.
For now, Apple has no plans of offering the Reserve and Pickup option for the iPhone X in the United States.
The Reserve and Pickup option is a nice way to bypass the 5-6 weeks wait time that is currently there for the iPhone X if one orders it from Apple’s online store. The iPhone X went up for pre-order last week on October 27 and will hit the retail stores later this week on November 3. The first reviews of the device are already out with most of them praising the device performance, display, and Face ID.[Via MacRumors]
