Dubai, United Arab Emirates.-Thursday, November 2nd 2017 [ AETOS Wire ] The 10th anniversary of the iPhone, dubbed iPhone X, is shipping out and en route to the lucky few who pre-ordered last week. iPhone X is scheduled to be officially released Friday, November 3rd.

Hope is not entirely lost for the techno avant-garde; few official resellers and online retailers are holding onto iPhone X inventory—recently launched US-based is just one of a handful globally. “We are fortunate enough to have secured inventory for iPhone X which was not an easy task. Following our successful pre-order launch, we only have a few hundred remaining units available,” exclaims Andrew Hajjar Co-Founder of o ... Read more »
