Earlier today, Apple’s iPhone X page was updated to reflect that new orders will ship in 2-3 weeks, which is to say that if you get your order in as soon as possible, you’ll be able to enjoy Apple’s next-gen smartphone before the holiday shopping season comes to a close.
Shipping estimates for the iPhone X have improved to 2 to 3 weeks in the United States and Canada, up from the previous 3 to 4 week shipping estimates that have been available since early November.
Likewise, as you can see in the screenshot above, shipping estimates have improved to just two to three weeks in the U.S., as well, with some Apple Stores even reporting limited stock of the device.
Along with improving shipping estimates for devices purchased now from the online Apple Store, Apple has also been sending out iPhone X pre-orders more quickly than expected. Apple retail stores are also receiving regular shipments and customers who check stock on Apple.com early in the morning and use stock-tracking tools like iStockNow have been able to make purchases with no wait time.
iPhone X shipping estimates have improved to just two to three weeks in the various European countries including U.K., Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, the Netherlands; as well as various markets in the Asia and Pacific region, which includes Japan, China, Australia and New Zealand, among others. iPhone X models ordered today in the United States and Canada will now arrive well ahead of the holidays, in early December, making them available for holiday gifts.
The iPhone X was in short supply at launch and pre-orders for the device sold out within just a few minutes, but Apple has been working hard to ramp up supply to get orders out to all customers over the holidays.
We knew that the iPhone X would be hard to find in the weeks preceding the device’s worldwide launch, but the good news is that Apple is ramping up supply faster than some analysts initially anticipated.
