The iPhone X sold out of its initial available stock in its pre-order phase quickly, with shipments bumping up to five to six weeks in just a half hour.
But, it looks like Apple may be getting production to a nice pace, because shipments are starting to see an uptick in expected delivery dates in other regions across the globe. Specifically, in Canada, it looks like shipments for some variants of the iPhone X are now at 3 to 4 weeks, which is an impressive shift from 5 to 6 weeks — especially since the iPhone X hasn’t officially launched in that region just yet.
Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom it looks like it’s a similar situation. Shipments are now bumped up to 3 to 4 weeks, with the iPhone X going on sale there in just a few hours. And, almost oddly enough, the same can be said for shipment estimates in the United States as well. A quick spot check while putting together this article indicates that shipments for the Silver iPhone X, in both 64GB and 256GB variants, are now at 3 to 4 weeks.
It is the same 3 to 4 weeks shipping estimate for the Black 64GB/256GB variants.
This change of shipping estimates is actually right in line with what Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, said during the company’s followup earnings call after the quarterly report was issued. Cook said that production ramp up is happening at a nice clip, and that improvements are happening on a week-by-week basis. The new shipping estimates, already improving ahead of the smartphone’s launch, are a clear indicator that stock may actually be attainable leading into the holiday shopping season.
Did you already pre-order your iPhone X?
