Some customers who pre-ordered the iPhone X when pre-orders went live and initially received shipping estimates of one to two weeks are seeing their orders upgraded to delivery on November 3.

MacRumors reader Colin ordered a 256GB iPhone X from T-Mobile and was originally provided with a delivery estimate of November 10 to November 17, which has now been updated to November 3.

My own iPhone X order, placed right at 12:01 a.m., originally listed a delivery estimate of November 10 to November 17. It was just recently updated to a confirmed November 3 delivery date on Apple's site. Other customers who ordered early and saw the same delays may also get their shipments sooner than expected.

This is also good news for customers who have much longer wait times, as it suggests Apple is working rapidly to get orders out. Customers with two to three or four to five week delivery estimates may not have to wait quite that long if Apple can ramp up supply fast enough.

Right now, all iPhone X pre-orders are sold out and have been since about 15 minutes after pre-orders first went live. If you buy an iPhone X today, the delivery estimates are at 5 to 6 weeks.

Apple has confirmed it will have iPhone X stock in stores on launch day, so for customers who don't want to wait for weeks to get one of the new devices, lining up is an option. Supplies are limited, though, so it will be best to go as early as possible, likely even the night before.

Looks like this is happening for quite a few people. There's no email or anything -- you'll need to check the order itself on Apple's website to see if it's been updated. Looks like a lot of orders that were Nov 10. to Nov. 17 are now launch day delivery.

Ugh I hope my 17-24 delivery date is updated. I'm going to be out of the country during that time and Fedex will probably return the phone to Apple

Wow! I ordered a T-Mobile 256GB Silver model at 12:02 AM PDT from Apple and was disappointed to see a Nov 10-17 delivery but relieved it wasn't worse. Just checked online Apple Store order (I didn't get an updated e-mail from the original one I got) and now it shows November 3 delivery. Awesome! My day is looking up and happy to have it on launch day!

Sign up for a FedEx or UPS account, and then change the delivery options. I left out details, because details are a pain.
