Today at 3.01 a.m. Eastern Time or 12.01 a.m. Pacific Time, Apple will launch its new iPhone X in the United States. To prepare for this major event, the company has taken its online storefront off the air.
For the rest of the world, the pre-order time varies locally. In the U.K. this will be at 8.01 a.m., in China 3.01 p.m. and in Sydney 6.01 p.m.

Prospective owners who hope to buy an iPhone X today should, however, act sooner rather than later. Supplies are reportedly extremely limited, and available stock might sell out very fast. By the time you read this, it might already be too late.
The iPhone X, which is available in Black and Silver, comes in 256GB and 64GB versions which sell for $1,149 and $999 respectively. iPhone Upgrade Program clients will have to fork out $56.15 a month for the $256 GB version, or $49.91 per month for the 64 GB version.
