Apple is beginning to catch up with demand for the LG UltraFine 5K Display, causing shipping times to drop significantly in the U.S.

Earlier this week, new orders for the $974 screen were scheduled to ship in two to four weeks, but as of this morning, that estimate has been cut to just three to five business days.

Showcased during Apple’s recent MacBook Pro unveiling, the UltraFine 5K Display measures 27 inches and gives users a super-sharp 5120 x 2880 resolution — the same as the 5K iMac. It’s powered by a single Thunderbolt 3 cable and charges your MacBook via USB-C.

It also has a built-in camera and microphone, stereo speakers, and three USB-C ports for connecting other peripherals. What makes it so popular is its sublime image quality, which is thanks to an IPS panel that boasts a P3 wide color gamut and impressive brightness.

The UltraFine 5K Display quickly sold out after hitting the Apple online store, with shipping estimates slipping to two to four weeks. They didn’t improve until earlier today, when Apple dropped its estimate to just three to five business days for shoppers in the U.S.

If you want yours earlier, you might be able to pick one up at your local Apple store. AppleInsider reports that many locations are getting stock, but they’re selling out “almost immediately,” so you’ll need to move fast to secure one.

Now that shipping times have improved, those waiting on existing orders are getting new delivery dates. If you’ve ordered an UltraFine 5K Display, then, you might want to check your order status.
