iPhone X Shipping Estimates Improve to 2 to 3 Weeks in United States and Canada

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.

The new 2 to 3 week shipping estimates for North America follow improved shipping estimates in countries across Europe and Asia Pacific.


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.

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. Many MacRumors readers who had late November or December shipping estimates after ordering have already received their devices or are expecting them soon.

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.

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.

Low demand increases supply and decreases order fulfillment times.

Being a dinosaur-brain I wanted one due to its scarcity. Now that I know I can have one I no longer want it. :p

Was there ever any scenario in which you (and the others) wouldn't see this as "Apple is doomed!"? If the phone isn't available, it's because of "artificial scarcity", if it is available, it's because "nobody wants it". Now we have a scenario where the phone is slightly less unavailable, yet somehow that's still a bad thing. Seems a lot like a certain contingent here is starting with the narrative that Apple is both doomed and horrible, and then fitting the available evidence into that narrative.

Buy the Verizon version and activate wherever you want.
The Verizon version *IS* the version they will eventually sell SIM free.
