Holiday shoppers beware, the iPhone X shipping times just got greatly improved

Holiday shoppers beware, the iPhone X shipping times just got greatly improved
Back when the iPhone X was released at the beginning of the month, the lead times stretched all the way to December in some cases, then they began to abate to 3-4 weeks. Apple has seemingly improved on the TrueDepth camera yields further, or the early adopters already have an iPhone X in their hands, as, just in time for the holiday shopping spree that begins today, you can get any model of Apple's latest and greatest handset to ship within 1-2 weeks.

That's been the case in Europe since last week, too, but there the iPhone X is much more expensive than in the US, so folks are understandably more reluctant to grab it off the shelves. Thus, the rumors that Apple will have a weak quarter due to the inability to produce enough iPhone X units on time to satisfy demand, seem to have been exaggerated, and Apple's record quarterly forecasts might turn out to be pretty credible.

Because they grossly overestimated pre-order number

Yeah that was a terrible prediction by Kuo, regardless the X sold over 10 million on launch weekend, that number is absolutely crazy, the X is selling like mad right now despite being $1000+
