Apple's new iPhone X has been hit by a glitch that is preventing users from taking calls.

Hundreds of owners have come out to complain about the unusual bug, quite ironically stating that the $1000 device is not able to complete the most basic function of a mobile phone, something that a $10 device can do.

Apple said it was "looking into these reports."
