iPhone X Shipping Estimates Improve to 3-4 Weeks in Several Countries

iPhone X shipping estimates have improved to 3 to 4 weeks in many countries around the world, including the UK, Australia, Japan, China, and more.

In fact, shipping estimates are better in what appears to be all first wave launch countries in Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East.


At three to four weeks, customers in those countries who place an order today will be able to get their hands on an iPhone X right around the beginning of December. Customers who have already placed an order should also see their arrival times improve, and MacRumors readers are already reporting decreased wait times.

The new shipping estimates are an improvement from the 5 to 6 week estimates we saw just after pre-orders sold out. Estimates have not yet improved in North America, so we're still seeing 5 to 6 week wait times in the United States, but the better shipping estimates should soon expand to all launch countries.

Apple's iPhone X is on the verge of launching, and the first orders will arrive to customers in New Zealand and Australia in just a few hours. Apple Stores will be opening at 8:00 a.m. local time across the globe for in-store sales.

I guess supplies aren't as constrained as so many analysts said they would be.

Add this to the list of how wrong Ming-Chi Kuo's "poor supply until 2018" rumor was.

ordered on 12:07am and still nothing to see here :mad:
:(


I'm in the same boat. I'll love it when someone in a foreign country places an order today and gets it before me. That'll make me even more of a loyal customer.

Still a sour taste in my mouth when my friend on Sprint tells me he'll get his iPhone X sometime in the next week, yet he ordered it at 5:00am PST... and I was up in the middle of the night doing it on Apple's website for ATT GSM 256GB Black.

Well good thing that my xx:07 (the moment the app started to work), order for an "unpopular" silver 64gb is still 20-27 november. Disgrace of a shopping experience directly from Apple.

I don't know that consumers are canceling orders because excitement is down. I would say if anything, this is likely the most exciting time when others start receiving their devices Ahead of schedule or on time. If anything, if somebody doesn't like iPhone X, they likely will just return it during the 14 days.
