If you got your iPhone X pre-order in early enough, you can lean back now and think about which accessories to get for your iPhone X.

Within minutes of pre-orders of the iPhone X opening on Apple's website, delivery times rose to five to six weeks.

Today marked the kick-off for iPhone X preorders, which was Apple's much anticipated 10th-anniversary edition of its iPhone.

Apple said pre-orders will open at 3:01 a.m. ET (12:01 a.m. PT) at Apple, phone carriers and retailers. Checking for an iPhone X in stock takes seconds and it could help you find the model you're looking for.

iPhone X features an all-glass and stainless steel design with a 5.8-inch Super Retina display, A11 Bionic chip with neural engine for powerful machine learning, augmented reality and immersive 3-D gaming experiences, wireless charging and Face ID, delivering an innovative and secure new way to unlock, authenticate and pay. According to Apple's service pricing support page, it will cost $279 to fix the iPhone X's screen for customers who don't have AppleCare+, the company's extended warranty.

Just like the Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus, the Reliance Jio is offering a buyback offer, which happens to return up to 70% of the retail price.

What impact all of this has on the number of devices Apple has been able to put up for pre-order is now unknown. Buyers can also avail either a cashback of Rs 15,000 if they purchase the smartphone with Apple Earpods or a cashback of Rs 22,000, if they buy the iPhone X with an Apple watch.

The company's website showed delivery times pushed out to five to six weeks for the phone, compared to an initial plan of November 3. All other damages to the iPhone X that need repairing will cost a whopping $549, over half the price of the new phone's base model. "Another day, another negative rumor about the so-called delay of Apple's iPhone X". The device has another new feature: a higher price.

The device also sold out via Apple's website within minutes in the U.K. By mid-morning, customers trying to preorder the phone - which will cost British consumers 999 pounds ($1,307) for the entry-level model - were being told they would have to wait 4-6 weeks for availability.

Apple has a lot riding on the new handsets.

At any rate, even if some may argue that this isn't the "right" way to pronounce the iPhone X's name, at the very least, you know how Apple wants you to say it.

This stands in stark contrast to the iPhone 7-series, whose phones had an internal market share of 43 percent at the same point a year ago, writes the Wall Street Journal. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus had 24 percent of the market in september 2015.
