When the iPhone X was officially announced, it was as the rumors said and that Apple confirmed that the device would be released after the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. This is why it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that the iPhone X has only recently managed to get approved by the FCC.


For those unfamiliar with the overall process, FCC approval is required if you want to sell a device stateside. The FCC’s approval means that the iPhone X is now eligible to be sold in the US where it is expected to be released on the 3rd of November, with pre-orders taking place towards the end of October.

However we should state that if you are planning on getting the iPhone X, you’ll want to move fast because we are hearing that the phone could be extremely difficult to get ahold of. Some analysts are predicting that supply will be constrained up to the first half of 2018, so you’ll definitely want to pre-order it ASAP once it goes live.

Some are saying that Apple could be having issues with production hence the delay, such as with the OLED display while others are saying that it could be the TrueDepth camera that could be the reason behind the hold up.
