When looking at the different colour options on the iPhone X it got me thinking - could Apple put a few in each store to allow us to take a look before we have to order.
With each new phone there is always something that is a lot better (or worse) when you see it in person. For me lately it was the iPhone 7 in jet black, which I loved after holding one and seeing how nice it felt in the hand.
Well I’m in the same dilemma for the iPhone X, should I go for Silver or Black? I’d also like to compare the in hand feeling with my jet black iPhone 7 (did I mention I love it!...).
Before the Apple Watch was released stores got a small quantity of stock in so that potential buyers could make sure it was for them before the pre-orders went live.
It makes sense to me (based on stock availability) that Apple does the same thing for the iPhone X, put a couple in each store and let people play with them before having to put so much cash down on one. Yes, we have a return policy but that does nothing for their inventory management having to turn them into refurbished models for Apple Care + etc...
So, please Tim if you are reading (I can only dream...) please listen to my suggestion and make it happen.
