Now you can get an iPhone X the day after you buy it online. Apple is offering free next-day delivery on all in-stock items, including its latest iPhone, as long as you order by a specific time. It ensures that you’ll have everything you need in time for Christmas.
If you make a purchase on Apple’s online store by 3:00PM ET this week, you’ll receive your order the next day. The deadline to guarantee you have your order in time for the big day next week is Friday, December 22. Apple can send orders out and have them delivered on Saturday, but after that you’re limited to in-store shopping to get your hands on the phones, tablets, smartwatches, laptops, desktops, and accessories.
All configurations of the iPhone X are available. Getting an iPhone X online isn’t difficult as Apple has Silver and Space Gray with 64GB or 256GB of storage in stock. In-store pickup, though, is a little iffy. Your local Apple Store might not have a specific configuration waiting for you until later in the month.
Other last-minute gifts mentioned by Apple include the Apple Watch Series 3 and iPad. Aside from the iPhone X, Apple appears to have just about everything it sells online prepared for next-day delivery. Only the AirPods are noticeably missing, and that’s common among most U.S. retailers.
Remember that you have until midday the rest of the week to take advantage of Apple’s complimentary next-day delivery.
