MacRumoursKuo said: "Given the limited supply conditions, we expect market demand to be not fully met before the 18th. We are reassessing our forecast for iPhone X 2017F shipments from 45 to 50 million to about 40 million units, but we're reviewing to estimate iPhone shipments X will be estimated at 80-90 million units.

There is also the same A11 Bionic under the hood. This six-core processor is divided into two low power kernels and four high-performance kernels whose regular core is 25 percent faster than the previous A10 chip, and high-performance kernels are 75 percent faster than the A10 SoC.

It's also quite certain, says a firm who says there is someone who has a chance of "one in a million" and wins his face.

Apple also introduced a new gesture that could be "home" on the iPhone, which is also used for multitasking on the iPhone X. The handset lock button can now be used to burn Siri.

Wireless charging is included, while the iPhone X supports the same Qi wireless charging standards as iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which means customers can use third-party charging accessories. Apple has come up with its own proprietary AirPower wireless charging mat that will be next year.

Battery life has also increased, with Apple claiming two hours of battery life longer than iPhone 7.
