In early November, shipping estimates for the iPhone X, in both variants, improved from 5 to 6 weeks to just 3 to 4 weeks.
Update: As was expected, Apple’s production and supply continues to improve across the board. The original article noted that shipping estimates in other areas, including the United States, would probably improve following the boost in Europe. That has indeed happened, with shipping estimates in the United States and Canada now indicating that both variants of the iPhone X will begin shipping in just two to three weeks. The original article continues below.
But it looks like Apple’s focus on improving availability has started working out for the company. As first noted by MacRumors today, Apple’s shipping estimates for the iPhone X have improved to 2 to 3 weeks in all European countries where the phone launched. That includes Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, and others.
The improved shipping dates are for the 64GB and 256GB iPhone X in either the White/Silver or Black models. If this shipping estimate holds across the board, it would mean that if you put in an order for the iPhone X right now, it should arrive well ahead of the holidays at the end of the year.
At the time of publication, shipping estimates for regions other than Europe are still listing 3 to 4 weeks shipping, including in the United States. However, if the shipping change that arrived earlier this month is any indicator, other regions where the iPhone X is available could see improved shipping estimates in the very near future as well.
The original report does indicate that stock continues to trickle into physical retail stores as well, both Apple stores and third-party retailers. Many iPhone X customers who pre-ordered their device are pointing out that their units have started shipping much sooner than their initial estimate, which is certainly good news.
Apple suppliers will continue to ramp up production of newest flagship smartphone, and stock will continue to improve in the weeks and months ahead.
