In addition to pre-orders and limited in-store availability for walk-in customers starting Friday, Apple is said to begin accepting reservations for the iPhone X starting this weekend in several other countries except for the United States.
Reserve and Pickup will open Saturday, November 4 at 6:00 a.m local time in Australia, Belgium, and the United Kingdom, which are outside the US. And at 8:00 a.m. local time on the same day in Canada, Mexico, Hong Kong, Switzerland, and the United Arab Emirates.
In the aforementioned countries, customers should be able to select the iPhone X color and storage capacity they want and book that model for pickup at the Apple retail store they specify. The reserved models available, if any, will vary by location.
Unlike the standard in-store pickup option offered during the checkout process on Apple’s website, that requires paying upfront for the device, the Reserve and Pickup system lets customers pay for the selected device in store upon pickup.
Other countries where Apple retail stores operate may also be included, be we are not sure whether other region-specific links yet.
Reserve and Pickup also let customers bypass the current 5-6 weeks shipping estimate of preordering with in-store pickup.
While the pickup generally must be completed within a 30-minute window selection, or else the reservation may be canceled. A valid government-issued photo ID must be shown as a proof identity at the store, and there’s a max of two reservations per customer.
The availability of Unlocked and SIM-free iPhone X models for reservations will vary on a country-by-country basis.
Apple confirmed that Reserve and Pickup will not be available in the United States, but standard, pay-ahead in-store pickup of iPhone X is available.
