Late Christmas Gift

Late Christmas GiftPlanning on getting everyone on your Christmas list an iPhone X this year? Better keep shopping. Mac Rumors has obtained a report from a man widely considered the best Apple analyst on the planet. He says that the iPhone X will not be available in mass quantities until well into next year and that means not so happy holidays for the tech giant. The problem appears to be with the true depth camera sensor that the phone uses for its facial recognition software. This is the same system the company had trouble with during the very public demonstration of the new phone. The same analyst says the news is not all bad. He predicts that sales of the iPhone X will pick up strongly during the first three months of the new year and the company will land the super sale it hoped to get during the end of this year. So what does this mean for you? If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on an iPhone X before the holidays, consider selling it. The profit alone could make it a very merry Christmas indeed.
