    Shipping estimates for the iPhone X have improved to 2 to 3 weeks in the United States and Canada, up from the previous 3 to 4 week shipping estimates that have been available since early November.

    The new 2 to 3 week shipping estimates for North America follow improved shipping estimates in countries across Europe and Asia Pacific.


    iPhone X models ordered today in the United States and Canada will now arrive well ahead of the holidays, in early December, making them available for holiday gifts.

    Along with improving shipping estimates for devices purchased now from the online Apple Store, Apple has also been sending out iPhone X pre-orders more quickly than expected. Many MacRumors readers who had late November or December shipping estimates after ordering have already received their devices or are expecting them soon.

    Apple retail stores are also receiving regular shipments and customers who check stock on Apple.com early in the morning and use stock-tracking tools like iStockNow have been able to make purchases with no wait time.

    The iPhone X was in short supply at launch and pre-orders for the device sold out within just a few minutes, but Apple has been working hard to ramp up supply to get orders out to all customers over the holidays.

    Low demand increases supply and decreases order fulfillment times.

    Wonder if they fixed the "GREEN" line issues in these new ones coming. Surprised with that issue, that expected deliveries are getting better.

    Buy the Verizon version and activate wherever you want.
    The Verizon version *IS* the version they will eventually sell SIM free.

    When Apple notified me that my iPhone X had shipped, they said it would deliver on Nov 21. UPS said Nov 16, but a day later, said Nov 17. Now UPS say Nov 20. The phone languished in a UPS warehouse in China for three days and then was shipped to Inchon, Korea.

    So we have a product assembled in Communist China by a Republic of China company for an American company, being shipped to the USA via South Korea. Internationalism at its best.

    Actually Verizon OR Sprint. Both are same model.

    If you buy at Apple Store full price, you get the CDMA/GSM compatible phone with Qualcom modem, fully unlocked. You just get a bonus SIM that you can throw away!

    Quite possible sometime tomorrow or Friday.

    If I recall, for the 7/7 Plus models, Sim-Free model was available 2 weeks after initial launch. It was around there.

    I think the 128GB version will be on perpetual backorder along with the 512GB, 68.7GB and the 132.8GB models.

    I wonder if Apple will sell the expected 40-50 million iPhone X devices that Ming-chi Kuo was predicting before the end of the year. The estimate was revised down to 25 million based on extreme supply limitations that would carry on through mid-2018, but supply is obviously catching up to demand a lot quicker than originally thought.

    Being a dinosaur-brain I wanted one due to its scarcity. Now that I know I can have one I no longer want it. :p
