Apple's iPhone X was making news well before the device was anywhere close to official, with speculation on what features the smartphone would offer running rampant.

Separately, a report from Nikkei claims that the initial shipments of the iPhone X are expected to be around 20 million units, only half of what was planned for this year. "Consumer loyalty to iPhone remains remarkably strong, despite persistent complaints about high prices and worries about declining innovation, with only 3 percent of respondents stating that their next phone would *not* be an iPhone", Bernstein said. "While it's a little early to know, it appears that this even lower share relative to that earlier "S" model probably resulted from some buyers delaying a purchase, we think in anticipation of the new iPhone X." .

As a reminder, pre-orders for the 5.8-inch iPhone X begin this Friday, Oct. 27 at 12:01 a.m. PDT.

Analysts have speculated that iPhone 8 sales have suffered because of the continued popularity of the iPhone 7, which got a price reduction when the iPhone 8 was announced.

He also expressed skepticism that Face ID would work the way it was supposed to, but CNBC's piece again doesn't say why.

Apple-designed accessories including leather and silicone cases in a range of colours will be available starting at Rs 3,500 while a new iPhone X Leather Folio will be available for Rs 8,600.

Apart from the difference in the price of iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, nothing has changed much when it comes to features and specification of the phone.

Still, Wozniak is among those who bought the iPhone 8, but he says that for him, it's just the same as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6, despite it being two generations ahead. This means that there will likely be a shortage of the smartphone and many customers will have to wait a long time before getting one.

Foxconn, meanwhile, is the sole assembler for the iPhone X, and splits the manufacturing orders for iPhone 8 Plus with Pegatron and Wistron. It must be noted that the iPhone 8 models are available in rose gold color as well.

He now uses an iPhone 8, though he doesn't appear overly impressed with that either. While all three devices were announced at the same time on September 12, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus went on sale September 22, leaving them just a little over a month to hold the title as Apple's newest phones.
