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.

The belief that Apple purposely slows down older iPhones with iOS updates is one of the oldest tropes thrown around by Apple critics. They almost universally believe that this is done to bait less sophisticated users into upgrading to newer iPhone models more often than they might otherwise. Considering that Apple typically offers three or four years of iOS updates for any given device, this is about the only straw the haters can grasp at when it comes to Apple and upgrades, especially in comparison to the inconsistent availability of Android updates for many devices.
