Apparently, he did not even get off the horse to receive the iPhone. He sat right there on the horse, where he was handed over his new iPhone X by a Hariniwas circle store owner Ashish Thakker.

While researchers had been expecting a lull in sales of the iPhone X, the initial gush has been strong. However, this in itself is proving to be a problem because the demands are high and the supplies are seemingly low. Apparently, retailers and online players were handed over a thin supply of the iPhone X, and many of them are already out of stock.

Reportedly, authorised resellers and corporate partners were disappointed at the limited stock being handed over to them. Don t expect any beeline for iPhone X in India as the company has handed over very limited stocks some received even a mere 15-20 units to online as well as offline authorised resellers. We, however, are yet to see a unit, an Apple Authorised Corporate Partner told IANS on the condition of anonymity. ALSO READ: Apple iPhone X: How to set up and use Face ID
