Prepping for Your iPhone X- AppleCare+

So you are getting an iPhone X sometime between November 3rd and the end of December. Congratulations! Now what? Hopefully I can help you with that. I’m running a series this week that will cover some of the basics that you should consider and take care of before your iPhone X arrives, as well as a few items for when you first power it up. It should get you to the point where you are ready to jump straight in and get started with your new device on day one.

SaharaCase Protective Kit Makes a Solid Starter Case for the iPhone X

Have you ever found yourself spending money on a case that you absolutely knew you wouldn’t keep using right when you get a new iPhone? I know I have. In my years as an iPhone user, I have found that there are case people and “naked” people when it comes to smartphone users. Most are one or the other, and from what I know, this usually doesn’t change. You are what you are, I guess. I fall somewhere on the case side, myself.

Some people don’t care what their phones look like or if the screen collects a crack here and there, and others will attempt to encase their phone in carbonite to prevent anything from ever coming into direct contact with the device, including their own fingers. If you fall on the case person side, then you are probably working on getting one for your iPhone X as I type this. I’m with you, as I ordered mine yesterday.

For All of You Still Trying to Preorder the iPhone X, I Salute You

Whew! I am very happy that’s over. I got in with my iPhone using the Apple Store App at about 2:04 AM CST, and thanks to the fact that I used the iPhone Upgrade Program pre-approval, all I had to do was hit two buttons to process my order. That was it. It was definitely the easiest Apple preorder that I’ve done.

Report: Apple Had to Downgrade Face ID Specs to Meet Ship Deadline

So it looks like Bloomberg has a pretty big scoop on the iPhone X production troubles here. Normally I would take a story like this with a big grain of salt. However, Bloomberg is a pretty solid source for Apple news, even though the company has waged a war of secrecy against them recently. They still have their sources, and don’t tend to just run with wild rumors like many other media outlet, so there is a high likelihood that this report is as least partially accurate. Also, I have to give Alex Webb and Sarah Kim of Bloomberg credit- this is a well-written and balanced article that provides a lot of insight into the entire situation. There are a lot of good details, and I highly recommend reading the whole thing. This is definitely not just a click-bait Apple hit piece. Kudos to the authors for that.

Apple is Making the iPhone X Available In-Store on Nov 3

Apple is turning back the clock to the days of the Launch Day Lineup

With a sneaky little press release this morning, Apple has shaken up the iPhone X preorder process again. After already bending it somewhat in favor of existing iPhone Upgrade Plan customers, the company has decided to make the iPhone X available in its stores on launch day, as well. This should go smoothly. Stores open at 8 AM local time according to the press release. I especially like the line that encourages walk-in customers to arrive early. I think some people will take that to mean this afternoon.
