    Hi everyone! Is it still ok to pre order in the US site and have it shipped to JAC? Which telco will work here? Tia.

    Hey, Apple doesn't ship to identified freight forwarders like JAC. I actually confirmed this with JAC like a week ago.

    Saw the iPhone 8 the other day at the Apple Store here. Looks great, except I'm not a fan of the glass back. Reminds me of a mahjong cube.

    Waiting for the iPhoneX to come out. And like the post-paid plans I posted in this thread a while back, it seems that's where I'm headed. I'm just flummoxed that the only size options are a 64gb and then a 256gb. Wala man lang 128gb?

    mm...I'm speculating that the reason why 128 GB is missing in the line-up is the difficulty in producing the iPhone X in significant quantities. More models means more production so Apple is limiting it to the entry level X and the totl X to match the expected demand.

    128GB should be the entry-level X though

    They've already got a massive line-up of iPhones: SE, 6s, 7, 8, X.

    I note, though, that 6s and the 7 come in 32GB and 128GB.

    *My 6s is 64GB though.....

    I also think there is possibly a bit of up-selling on Apple's part with regard to this. For those who cannot live with only 64GB, there is no middle ground, only the most expensive variant--I suspect profit margins for the 256GB variant are even higher than the base model.

    ...or it's the other way around, they're offering the 64GB so they're an 'affordable' version of the iPhone X. It's trend has always been to offer cheaper version with cheaper parts - in this case the 64GB SSD. In every iPhone iteration since iPhone 5C/5S when they first offered the 8GB/16GB respectively they've done it so on each cycle. That has been the pattern.

    SSD does take up a lot of the cost of an iPhone model. It affects sales of a mid-tier model too. Between $999 and $1149 a third mid-tier model will cannibalize the low-tier model (or the other way around). That isn't practical if you want to sell your products fast and maximize production and matching sales.

    Mm...another possibility: key iPhone parts supplier Samsung offered 64 and 256 RAM modules and witheld 128 GB supply to sabotage Apple. Eh wala kaming 128 GB eh. Nagkaubusan na eh.Take it or leave it! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Bad Shamesung!
