    BTW, there's 256GB iPhone 8 Pluses in stock at my local Apple Store and T-Mobile store. My T-Mobile rep told me people are either holding out for the X, or people don't like the price of the X and hanging onto their devices for another year.

    I think people may be waiting. Apple using the same design 4 years in a row will definitely put some off. That and the fact that apple supports their devices so long, people will hold onto their devices longer.

    Yes but that still doesn't change the fact of no backorders. Most will wait for the x yes, and apple never has enough supply, they love having that "hype" for the demand because they wait until the last minute to ramp up production (which if these delays are true, looks like finally came back to really bite them in the ***)
    Analysis is part of my business model, but at this point no one has actual facts to even base their analysis off of. It’s all speculation until the numbers are released.

    It will be interesting to see what apple says about launch weekend. Usually they love to brag how many they have sold, this year they seem to be mum, which goes along with the idea of low sales.

    Either way they’ll spin it to sound like it’s the best launch they’ve ever had.

    I never hear anything until I come to the forums, so I’m always in the dark.

    I will pre-order, and hope to get one quickly after launch. Honestly if it drags on and on I will just keep my 7 Plus, I don't have to get a new phone, I just do it anyways. Plus the cost outside the US is going to be a huge factor, not a lot of 256GB buyers given the exchange rates so hopefully Apple will push more 256GB to the US.

    As I have said in previous post that I hope Apple will ramp up production to avoid any long delays.

    At a 1,000 bucks plus tax, folks patience will be real thin if they have to wait a long time to get one.

    Yeah, people will probably opt out for the 8 if they had to wait until next year.
