Apple warns you to line up early for the iPhone X

If you're planning to buy an iPhone X when it becomes available in stores next Friday, Apple says you should get there well ahead of time.

Apple's physical stores will have the iPhone X in stock next Friday, Nov. 3, the company announced in a press release Tuesday -- but it encourages customers to arrive early. iPhone X preorders open this Friday, Oct. 27.

Apple Stores will open at 8 a.m. local time around the world.

Is the advice a consequence of a possible shortage of iPhone X units? Or a way to make sure there are plenty of newsy and photogenic lines Friday morning, something it didn't see with the iPhone 8?

We'll find out next Friday.
