Apple starts shipping iPhone X pre-orders to Sprint customers

If you've been lucky enough to have your iPhone X pre-order go through, then you probably wonder if your device will reach to you on November 3, as Apple promised. Considering the Cupertino-based company, as well as some carriers have already moved the shipping date by 1 to 3 weeks, it's a valid question.

Apparently, Sprint has already started shipping the first iPhone X units to customers who placed their orders on October 27. It's the first carrier in the United States that is sending shipping notifications to its customers, so if you chose Sprint when pre-ordering the iPhone X, you might want to check your email.

The shipping notification should contain tracking information that you can follow by checking the UPS website (which hasn't been updated yet). All orders shipped over the weekend should arrive on November 3 and not earlier.

Apple has always prevented shipping companies to hold orders until the actual release date. Since the iPhone X has been confirmed to hit the shelves on November 3, then that's when your phone should arrive if you ordered one online.

This is why waiting in line at the Apple store is foolish, order your device and get it at the same time, or perhaps sooner. Lol

The anticipation drives us techies crazy. Tracking my Note while the hurricane was going on in Texas was a nightmare, then the plane got delayed, and it arrived a day late. I was pissed. Enjoy your purchase when it arrives. It's what we work for.

The hype of this handset is off the charts. It'll probably break all sorts of records on launch day.

I did a in-store pre order with sprint on oct.30th.(X 64g silver).i was given paper work with a tracking number , so I went ahead and entered it into sprints website and it still just says “pending”. It’s really frustrating, given I hate being left on the edge of my seat.. Anybody have info or the same thing happening to you ?
