Only a few minutes after the iPhone X launched for pre-order, Apple.ca saw shipping times slip to 5-6 weeks, as initial launch supplies quickly sold out.
Three weeks later, the company is continuing to improve its shipping times for the iPhone X, as Apple Canada’s website now shows 1-2 weeks for all models. The 1 to 2 week shipping estimates are an improvement over the previous 2 to 3 week shipping estimates that have been available since November 15.
iPhone X models ordered today in the Canada and the United States will now arrive by early December, well ahead of the holidays. For other parts of the world, iPhone X shipping estimates are still at 2 to 3 weeks, but these estimates are also expected to improve over the next few days.
Ahead of the iPhone X launch, rumours suggested the device would be heavily constrained and in short supply until well into 2018. However, given the improvements we are already seeing, it seems that the supply/demand balance will be reached earlier than expected.
