US analysts say iPhone X might not get in stores this year

More US analysts believe that iPhone X is going be trouble for Apple, as they believe that the new phone will arrive in stores in the first quarter of 2018.

“Many consumers won’t be able to find the X in stock until January at the earliest”, says Gene Munster, a tech investor and analyst with Loup Ventures in Minneapolis.

“Sometime in the first quarter,” adds Jan Dawson, an analyst with Jackdaw Research.

“A good three-four months until the X is in wide supply,” Tim Bajarin says.

The best scenario suggests that production delays and pent-up demand from early adopters will cause the phone to sell out within an hour or two when it goes on presale on Apple’s website Oct. 27.

Apple says the phone will be in stores Nov. 3, but analysts expect long lines and not much supply, but there’s also a possibility that iPhone X might not arrive in stores this year.

Hopefully those analysts base their predictions on work information. Just for the sake of iPhone fans. What worries me, is that USA Today claims that Apple declined to comment of these information.
