iPhone X Shipping Estimates Improve to 3-4 Weeks in the United States and Canada

iPhone X shipping estimates have now improved to 3 to 4 weeks in the United States and Canada, up from a previous shipping estimate of 5 to 6 weeks.

The updated 3 to 4 week shipping estimate applies to all carriers, colors, and capacities, and it means that orders placed today will arrive right around the beginning of December rather than later in the month.


Earlier today, iPhone X shipping estimates improved to 3 to 4 weeks in countries Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East, while shipping estimates were still at 5 to 6 weeks in North America, but now the iPhone X lists the 3 to 4 week shipping estimate in all first wave launch countries.

With shipping estimates improving, customers who have already placed an order for the iPhone X are also seeing their prospective delivery dates bumped up in many cases, and as available supply grows, delivery estimates should continue to improve further.

Just this afternoon, Apple CEO Tim Cook said Apple is working to increase production week by week to get the iPhone X to as many customers as possible as fast as possible.

As it's already November 3 in many countries around the world, the first iPhone X models are in the hands of customers. Apple's U.S. launch will kick off in the United States at 8:00 a.m. local time, with those on the east coast being the first to get the new devices.

Remember all the, "No one is getting the X in 2017!" talk? People really bought into the hype.

I bought two 256s to resell that will be here tomorrow. Not even going to open. Will return for refund on Saturday.

I'm happy for your loss...

No way! Whoa! Totally didn't see that coming! The supply "magically" caught up to demand. Production must have been ramped up so hard!

Must have been a lot of scalpers that ordered it, didn’t get the shipping dates they wanted and then canceled.

I wonder what this does to the scalpers?

There probably will be a lot of returns of the iPhone X from scalpers that bought them and then couldn’t get the money they wanted for them. It serves them right.

Apple is doing great with production now and handling the demand (or the demand isn't really all its cracked up to be).


Demand was never as high as some people predicted. Simple fact: it's a $999 phone.

Some posters were expecting the X to be a supercycle phone, matching if not exceeding the iPhone 6 launch. Simply silly predictions.

Nope mine hasn't changed still first week of december. I was on the website at minute 1 and it took 15 minutes for the site to open up. I ended up doing my order about 20 minutes after opening. So now if i order one today I get a better shipping estimate to the one I got 20 minutes into preorder. Im so dead sick of this whole process. Last time i join this stupid circus with Apple.

My order has moved back from mid-December to late November. Hurrah! Ordered four and a half hours late, as my son was born two hours before pre-orders came on and then medical crisis with my wife caused me to be somewhat distracted at the time!

They're in shops here in NZ for sale, but only on contract not bare.
