iPhone X now ships in 1-3 business days in the United States
Contrary to the predictions in November that the iPhone X won’t be in stock consistently for months, the shipping estimates of the device in the US have been improved to just 1-3 days. All carrier variants of the iPhone X in the US (Sprint, AT&T, Verizon) can now be delivered in 1-3 days if you order them now, while the SIM-free version will be delivered in 3-5 days, according to the online store listing.
Earlier this month, the ship-by estimates improved in other major markets like China, Canada and Europe, although in some countries the customers have to wait longer – up to 9 days. In store availability has also improved in several US regions. You can check the iPhone X stocks at the Apple’s online Store.
The improvements in the iPhone X availability are a result of supply chain optimization and increase of the production capacity of Foxconn. Apple secured an additional order for LTE antennas, while the problems with the Face ID sensors have apparently been resolved.
Foxconn is now assembling between 450000 and 550,000 iPhone X units per day,, a significant increase from the 50,000 units a day in October.
