Photos show iPhone X boxes waiting to ship; video reveals what is under the lid of the box
So let's say that you pre-ordered your Apple iPhone X. What happens next? No, not to you, but to the boxes containing the iPhone X. Well luckily for everyone, tipster Benjamin Geskin's dad isn't an engineer at Apple, so no one will lose their job after we show you images of the Apple iPhone X retail box awaiting the long and winding journey to an Apple Store, or maybe to your front door at home.

Another photo shows the silver version of the iPhone X being stared at by some one whose reflection can be seen bouncing off the back of the phone. Check out the vertically mounted dual rear-facing camera, and the glass back.

We also embedded a quick eight second video that will show you what is right under the lid of the box. And if you were able to reserve an iPhone X this weekend, you'll get to enjoy all the hoopla yourself as soon as this coming Friday. Unfortunately, most of you will be waiting a few weeks after that for your iPhone X to arrive. Getting through each day until the phone arrives won't be easy.  As the late great Tom Petty once sang, "the waiting is the hardest part."

Sadly mine will be in a bag for protection and thrown around :/ Every time I get a phone the box is so badly dented.... STOP POSTING PHONES IN BAGS NETWORKS! That said this time I'll just go to the shop an replace it if the box is damaged.

Isn't it a standard procedure? Damaged box = RMA it / replace it at store. Who knows what damage suffered the device inside.

Definitely looks silver. The Contrast between it and the black Apple-logo or the camera housing is too great.

Unfortunately this page and the comments of people here indicate a severe deterioration in the mental they have they have nothing but sarcastic superficial and superficial relationship has the least understanding of modern technologies and these are the remnants of Apple's corrupt media, which works to eliminate minds in order to damage the reputation of competitors in the public without attention to the delivery of the right and real information. This page that speaks only about Apple and iPhone to show it or the technologies and the axis of the universe and phonearena bears a measure of this reality that people live from ignorance, coma, flattening, veneration, reverence and absolute magnificence of Apple.

I didn't read the article, but I'd assume that under the lid is the phone, charger, SIM tool and manuals. Am I close?
