Whenever Apple announces a new iPhone, trying to get your hands on it at the start can be difficult unless you move really fast. However with the iPhone X, some had predicted that the difficulty to obtain it would be unlike anything we have seen before, and that it could carry over into 2018.

Turns out that either these predictions were wrong, or Apple has managed to get a better handle on production because according to the Apple Online Store (via MacRumors), shipping estimates for the iPhone X has improved to under a week for the US market. We can’t speak for the other markets but if you’re in the US and you’re hoping to get the iPhone X in time for Christmas, you’ll be able to do so as the store estimates that it should ship in 5 business days.

This is an improvement over our report last week which had shipping estimates at 1-2 weeks. Prior to that, customers were looking at shipping estimates of 2-3 weeks, and before that and right after the iPhone X was open for pre-order, customers were told that they could wait 5-6 weeks before the phone was made available.

There have been some rumors/claims earlier on that Apple told its suppliers to reduce the accuracy of Face ID in order to get it shipped out earlier, but those are claims that Apple themselves have since denied.
