iPhone X shipping estimates improve in the US, here's how long you'll have to wait if you order now


Apple has reduced the shipping wait times for the iPhone X in the US. Customers who buy the smartphone from the Apple store now can receive their purchase in 2 to 3 weeks. This means that the units will most likely arrive in early December, ahead of the holiday season. 

As you might know, the iPhone X officially hit the shelves 6 weeks after the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus amid huge lines at Apple stores and shipping estimates of 5-6 weeks. The delayed introduction of the $1,000 flagship was most likely caused by a series of production bottlenecks involving some of the new components inside the device. 

This is the second improvement in shipping estimates for the iPhone X, as Apple slashed the waiting time to 3-4 weeks in early November. Expectations are that the supply will catch up with the demand in the following months, as production of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X will ramp up in Q4 2017.

Exaggerated supply chain shortages more likely. It’s been about 2 weeks since the launch and shipping estimates have gone down 2 weeks, it seems now they’re keeping up with demand.

This is the claim of any Android lover and the reason is the Apple success.

This site reported the production of iPhone 8 production was cut by 60%. Yet now they report "Expectations are that the supply will catch up with the demand in the following months, as production of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X will ramp up in Q4 2017.". They even gave a score of 9.2 for the iPhone 8. So yeah, this site is definitely biased.

I think Apple pioneered fake news. After all, they pioneered everything else in phone tech. Cough cough.

Not at all. It's just stupid, and doesn't affect Apple's bottom line in any way, you could be more productive though.

I'm hardcore tech, and you can call me whatever the hell you want. I'm a grown ass man, that makes his own money, and buys what the hell he wants. 256 gig silver coming soon, and nothing you can say will change that. LTE series 3 Apple Watch too. LiLClown.

What ultimately changed your mind though? You had a list of deal breakers.

My list of deal breakers still stand, but I can't let them keep me from an otherwise great phone. I judged it, before seeing, and trying it in person. After spending lotsa hands on time, I can proudly put my foot in my mouth, and admit I was wrong. It's a damn good phone, and everything I think it lacks, can be brought over with a software update...even the pencil. I really want one, and I miss having my huge iCloud library in my pocket. It still sorely needs split view, picture in picture, a new dock, themes, and pencil support. Think of how powerful it is, and how much more versatile those features would make it. The Note 8 is still the better overall phone though.
