When the iPhone X was first available for pre-order, unsurprisingly the initial batches were sold out pretty quickly and customers who were late to pull the trigger saw shipping estimates of 5-6 weeks before their order would arrive. However the good news is that those estimates have since improved considerably.


Heading on over to Apple’s US Online Store, it would seem that shipping estimates for both models of the iPhone X across the various US carriers have improved to 2-3 weeks, meaning that if you order now you should be able to get your iPhone X within a month, or even less. However this in turn does beg some questions.

It has been pointed out by some that while the iPhone X sold out quickly, it isn’t like in the past where previous iPhone orders could see customers wait longer than 5-6 weeks. This could either be that demand for the iPhone X is lower than what many had expected, or if previous reports are to be believed, Apple has finally managed to get a handle on production and things are proceeding smoother than expected.

So far Apple has claimed that pre-orders have been “off the charts”, with carriers echoing similar sentiments. Third-party reports have even indicated that as many as 9-12 million units of the iPhone X were pre-ordered in the first 3 days. Whatever the reason is, the shipping estimates should be welcomed by those who are thinking of getting the phone.
