Some Apple fans who weren’t expecting to receive their iPhone X until late November are in for a treat. Many customers report that their iPhone X shipping delays are being greatly reduced, with some already on their way.
Meanwhile, one lucky customer got their hands on their preorder iPhone X today.
UPDATE: Shipping times have now slipped to 5-6 weeks for all iPhone X models on the Apple online store.
Apple finally made iPhone X available to pre-order this morning, and within 30 minutes, shipping times slipped. If you didn’t get your order in early, you will now be waiting 4-5 weeks for Apple to deliver.
Apple has begun shipping early orders for iPhone 8, Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple TV 4K.
All three devices make their official debut tomorrow, September 22 — one week after they were made available to pre-order. If you haven’t already claimed yours, you’ll now have to wait at least three weeks for it to ship from the Apple online store.

For the first time since the launch of the iPhone in 2007, the company’s latest models failed to immediately sell out.
More than 12 hours after pre-orders opened this morning, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus remain generally available for pickup at Apple stores next Friday, the first day they go on sale to the public.
Typically, new iPhones sell out within minutes because demand far outstrips Apple’s ability to produce its latest devices in massive quantities. Is iPhone 8’s surprising availability a total Apple fail that shows nobody wants one? Or is it a sign of Cupertino’s mastery of the supply chain and production?
Apple fans will turn to other smartphone makers if the iPhone 8’s shipping delay is too lengthy. That’s according to one Bernstein analyst, who believes the device needs to be readily available for the holiday season.
Shipping times for AirPods have finally fallen below one month. In most countries, the wait has been reduced to just two to three weeks when ordering from the Apple online store, which is the lowest it has been since the earphones made their debut last December.
