Ahead of the iPhone X being announced, many analysts had predicted that the phone would boost Apple’s iPhone sales and bring Apple back to the glory days. In fact many have suggested that the iPhone X could be difficult to get your hands on even until 2018, but that no longer appears to be the case.

According to reports, it appears that the shipping estimates for the iPhone X have improved greatly to 1-2 weeks at this time of writing. This is a huge improvement from a little over a week ago where the estimates were at 2-3 weeks, which even then was a pretty good improvement from before where Apple’s website listed 5-6 weeks.

It is unclear how come shipping estimates have improved so much. Some reports have claimed that it is because Apple has finally managed to get a handle of production of the TrueDepth camera system which was reportedly one of the bottlenecks in the manufacturing process. Alternatively it could be that demand for the iPhone X is less than expected.

However a recent report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that demand for the iPhone X has not peaked yet, but we guess we’ll have to wait for Apple’s next financial report to get a better idea of how the company’s new iPhones have contributed to Apple’s revenues.
