iPhone X buyers in the United States are enjoying improved delivery times, with shipping estimates sitting at only two to four days. This means an online order placed today could be in your hot little hands by the end of the week. Some models are also available for store pickup today.
The improved shipping times include most models for AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon. T-Mobile models are showing a December 19th delivery date. Sim-free iPhones X models are also showing a December 13 – 15 delivery timeframe.
Depending on the model and carrier, some iPhone X models are available for in-store pickup. Check the online Apple Store, or the Apple Store app for in-store availability in your area.
Improved delivery estimates are also showing for other countries. The December 13 – 15 delivery timeframe is showing for many iPhone X countries, including Australia, Germany, and the United Kingdom. December 19 is a common delivery estimate in other countries.
The current delivery estimates are much improved from the 5 – 6 weeks estimated for orders soon after the October 27 pre-orders began. The improved estimates are coming a bit faster than some analysts expected.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the improved shipping estimates are due to better-than-expected production improvements, not a lack of demand.
