Delivery times are improving for Apple’s new iPhone SE during May, says new data compiled by JP Morgan.
In a note to investors shared by AppleInsider, JP Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee said the investment firm is seeing reduced iPhone SE delivery times around the world. Aggregate delivery-at-home timing across the globe has reached 10 days in the fourth week since the iPhone SE became available. The wait time was 18-days during the third week.
U.S. shipments, which account for approximately 35% of total iPhone shipments, are running about 15 days from order to delivery, which is a nice improvement over the 22 days it took in week 3.
China and Western Europe are also experiencing shortened delivery waits. Each of those regions accounts for about 15% of iPhone shipments.
JP Morgan compiled its availability data by aggregating the average delivery date of the iPhone SE across various countries using Apple’s online storefront.
The improved delivery times could mean one of two things, either that iPhone SE supplies are beginning to catch up to demand, or that demand of the new entry-level iPhone is beginning to wane. Flip a coin?
However, during Apple’s April earnings call, company CEO Tim Cook said Apple was seeing a “strong reaction: about the iPhone SE from customers.
