Less than a week after shipping estimates for new iPhone 5 orders through Apple's online stores dropped to two weeks
, availability continues to improve with the company's stores for the Asia-Pacific region now quoting one-week estimates
. Apple's online store distribution channels for other regions continue to show two-week estimates, but those should similarly drop to one week shortly.
Continued improvement of shipping estimates comes as the holiday shopping season kicks off and Apple works toward its goal of making the device available in at least 100 countries by the end of the year.
