Faster iPhone X delivery times due to improved production, not weak demand

With Apple iPhone X delivery times down to 1 to 2 weeks on new orders, the reason for the quicker delivery times depends on your world view. If you're not an Apple fan, you say that delivery times are dropping because no one is buying the phone.

Everyone in here knows I love Apple, and I even I know that this phone is having a hard time breaking any records, other than the return record. Just in family and friends, we have all returned ours, and gone back to the 7 plus or some rather exchange for the 8 plus. We love Apple but we know when a product is just not worth buying. Of course I would never stop using Apple products but this phone is easily the worst one yet.

Pro tip: When Apple doesn't announce opening weekend numbers, it isn't breaking any records.

I really believe there was never a shortage, it's the classic tell the buying public that they may not be able to get thier new phone and it creates demand. People desire what they can't have. Nintendo uses the same tactic on every new device they release. The X will sell well and probably break records, maybe not for units sold but as this is Apples most profitable phone by far it will break revenue records.

Why is this site always so busy apologizing on behalf of and defending everything about Apple? This isn't technology news, this is just marketing.

They're not. They're reporting on what an analyst stated.
