- The iPhone X now ships in 2-4 business days.
- That’s a major change from when the phone first launched – shipping times were previously estimated at 2-3 weeks.
- Apple has likely been able to increase the number of phones shipping during the holidays, despite reports that the device was in short supply.
After weeks of long delivery times, supply of the new iPhone X seems to have caught up with demand.
According to a report from MacRumors, the iPhone X is now shipping in 2-4 business days. This applies to all phones on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint, as well as devices without SIMs. T-Mobile is still shipping phones at a slight delay with estimated delivery for December 19, according to MacRumors.
The improved shipping times are a change from when the phone first launched. At the time, models for all four US carriers on Apple’s online store were showing delivery times of several weeks after the device’s November 3 launch date. In some cases, Apple’s website said the iPhone X would be delivered in “2-3 weeks.” Other people got confirmation messages that said their iPhone X wouldn’t ship for 4-5 weeks.
This change in shipping times suggests that Apple has been able to greatly increase the number of devices shipping during the holidays. The phone was previously expected to be in short supply due to production issues.
