In another brazen burglary in downtown San Francisco, suspects dressed in hooded sweatshirts snatched at least 300 iPhone Xs valued at $370,000 and made off with them, according to San Francisco police.
The smartphones — which launched to the general public Friday morning at $999 a piece — were stolen from a delivery truck parked in a loading dock at Stonestown Mall around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, police spokesman Officer Robert Rueca said.
A white Dodge van was used in the burglary and anyone with information is asked to call police at (415) 575-4444.
The iPhone X is being touted by Apple as its hottest-selling smartphone ever, selling out within minutes online. Apple has billed the iPhone X as the “future of the smartphone.”
CNET reported those who ordered their iPhone Xs from the Stonestown Apple Store will still receive them on time.
