Apple iPhone X orders for most U.S. carriers are now being delivered in one to three business days
The last time we checked in on the delivery times posted by Apple for iPhone X orders, it was the end of November and units purchased that day were shipping in five business days. Now, less than two weeks later, the tenth anniversary model is shipping in one-to-three business days for most models ordered through Apple for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. The same delivery time is seen for SIM-free models. The exception to the rule is the Verizon 256GB iPhone X in silver, which is listed with a delivery date of five business days.

Also featuring a delivery date of five business days are iPhone X orders from Apple for T-Mobile customers. Perhaps T-Mobile customers are ordering the iPhone X more than those subscribed to other U.S. wireless operators.

Apple Stores in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Pittsburgh and Seattle reportedly have had the phone in stock for you to walk-in and purchase. So if you don't want to wait at all, that could be your best play. Remember, the 64GB iPhone X is priced at $999 and the 256GB variant will set you back $1,149.

Top Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities says that the problems that slowed down production of the iPhone X have been cleared up. Apple had major issues with the TrueDepth Camera's dot projector, one of the major components used with Face ID. Kuo says that Foxconn, the exclusive manufacturer of the iPhone X, is now churning out 450,000 to 550,000 units a day. That is more than triple the pace from the original 50,000 to 150,000 handsets that were rolling down the assembly line when production first started.

You mean to get their hands on an iPhone X because most of Apple's products have a shiny apple logo and not all of them are overpriced like the X.

The Note8, Pixel 2 XL, and iPhone X are all overpriced. There's absolutely nothing that any of those phones can do that justify such high prices. We, as consumers, let it happen.

Both of those are overpriced. Though at least the Note offers the value of what it costs, unlike the others. The Note offers more hardware and software capabilities on the planet. Doesn't mean it needs to cost over $900 though. So yeah its overpriced and yes I have one and am saying its overpriced. Considering Apple didn't even include a fast charger in the box for their phone, makes $1000 way overpriced. No Vanilla Android phone should cost more than $750, no matter the brand.

I remember all the hype and propaganda from the Apple analyst where it was going to be a while in the new year before you would be able to get your hands on an iPhone X. At the end of November you could walk into any Apple store and pick up an overpriced iPhone X. Apple and it's zealots have cryed wolf too often.

IT's all said to increase hype. I think lines will be shorter as people pre-order more. Can't wait to see 4th quarter Apple sales numbers. I'm betting less than 250M with how many selling models? Like 7? iPhone 8 iPhone 8+ iPhone 7 iPhone 7+ iPhone 6S iPhone 6S+ iPhone SE

Just like people do to get a Note? A pen and extra camera and less battery shouldn't cost $950

23. Xilam unregistered

A device with freeware for OS shouldn’t cost nearly $1000.

No Samsung has to develop software so Google can bake it in to stock Android a couple of years later.

Pen, extra camera, premium headphones, fast charger, all adapers + free Gear 360 or 128GB SDcard and more.

Peacetoall, why do you care so much about what other people spend their money on? Honestly....by typing bullcrap like this, you're no better than cnour or piyath. You're basically the android fan equivalent of them.

Walked in the T-Mobile store and walked out with mine. Great service as always from T-Mobile. Verizon is a joke took my mom there to upgrade hers and they didn't even offer to transfer her data....

I pre-order on on day one on VZW and didn't receive until December 4th. It was suppose ot be delivered Dec 3rd but was delayed by UPS. No idea why. Sold it on eBay just days later for $50 less than I paid. VZW doesn't charge me taxes EVER. They eat them. Long story! Sold for $1100 (256GB) Nice phone, but I had to many app issues to keep. Hopefully all the apps I need will get updated. I thought I wasn't gonna like it. I like it alot. But if I can't use all my apps, its to costly on my very limited budget.

IPhone X sales already reached over 30 million, that's quite crazy for such a high price phone, but people pay big money when they can get great product like iPhone X. It hits all the right spots

30 million iPhone X units sold so far? Okay buddy... Provide me with a link to an article where Apple themselves have revealed this information, and I'll believe it. I found absolutely nothing corroborating your claim when I googled it.

Midian is a loyal Apple zealot, and will make up crap to pump up Apple and their products. I wouldn't put it past Apple to pay people to pump up the Apple hype and propaganda train. All aboard Midian. There is good Apple Kool aid for you on your hype train.

Just read some other articles where I saw comments that Midan has made and....yikes, to say the least. We've got another Bankz on our hands.

Midian and their zealot ways are so stupid, especially if they took the numbers that phonearena used in this article, and even gave Apple the benefit of the doubt for the highest amount of iPhone X's manufactured. Then taking 550,000 a day for the last 40 days which is all of November and December up until now. That works out to 22 million, plus the 2 million from the October. That means a total of 24 million manufactured up till now. So I guess midan or bankz pulled that 30 million out of his butt. However if we average the manufacturing over the days up till now, then it comes to around 14 million iPhone X's manufactured up till now. What have you got say now midan? Or are you going to crawl under the rock you came from?

Midan your were caught with your pants down in a flat out lie. Especially when you said Apple already sold 30 million iPhone X's. The article you posted clearly states "These are Localytics estimates for the percentage of iPhone 8’s, 8 Plus’ and X’s that were in use as of Wednesday, November 29. And it estimated that 20.7 million iPhone X's have sold. But those are estimates and not actual sales. Plus the manufacturing numbers don't add up to all those sales. So who is correct? Oh wait, we will find out when the actual sales numbers come in after the new year. That is the truth.
