iPhone X shipping estimates have improved to 3 to 4 weeks in many countries around the world, including the UK, Australia, Japan, China, and more.

In fact, shipping estimates are better in what appears to be all first wave launch countries in Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East.


At three to four weeks, customers in those countries who place an order today will be able to get their hands on an iPhone X right around the beginning of December. Customers who have already placed an order should also see their arrival times improve, and MacRumors readers are already reporting decreased wait times.

The new shipping estimates are an improvement from the 5 to 6 week estimates we saw just after pre-orders sold out. Estimates have not yet improved in North America, so we're still seeing 5 to 6 week wait times in the United States, but the better shipping estimates should soon expand to all launch countries.

Apple's iPhone X is on the verge of launching, and the first orders will arrive to customers in New Zealand and Australia in just a few hours. Apple Stores will be opening at 8:00 a.m. local time across the globe for in-store sales.

My guess is a lot of people are canceling orders now that initial excitement is settled down
I don't know that consumers are canceling orders because excitement is down. I would say if anything, this is likely the most exciting time when others start receiving their devices Ahead of schedule or on time. If anything, if somebody doesn't like iPhone X, they likely will just return it during the 14 days.

ordered on 12:07am and still nothing to see here :mad:
:(
I'm in the same boat. I'll love it when someone in a foreign country places an order today and gets it before me. That'll make me even more of a loyal customer.

Still a sour taste in my mouth when my friend on Sprint tells me he'll get his iPhone X sometime in the next week, yet he ordered it at 5:00am PST... and I was up in the middle of the night doing it on Apple's website for ATT GSM 256GB Black.

That's good news for everyone.

I Wonder if people cancelling orders or ordering from multiple places to see if they can get one then cancel.

Or the phones are so bloody expensive people like me can't get one...
3-4 weeks is still a long time to wait if you order one now. They probably managed to increase production that's all.

Gotta have enough, and early enough to make some Holiday money.

I am not aware of many past issues of Apple missing ship dates, but, hopefully they aren’t setting themselves up for failure here. M

I feel you! My son and I sit right next to each while attempting to order the new iPhone. He went directly through AT&T. I went through Apple’s app on my iPad. I couldn’t get the App Store to load and place my order until around 12:08am. My sons iPhone X is out for a Nov 3 delivery. Mine is set for a Dec 5-11 delivery. Apple store fail...

My shipping time is slipping back. I used the store app and got on as soon as possible on the 27th, which ended up being about 20 minutes after the official start time. 256G silver and initial shipping time was 2-3 weeks; now showing 5-6 weeks.
