The iPhone X is now shipping within two to three weeks of being ordered from the tech giant’s website, in a sign that Apple is finally getting on top of supply shortages affecting its newly released, top-of-the-range smartphone.
The change marks a growing improvement in shipping estimates, which had stretched to as long as six weeks when the iPhone X went on sale less than two weeks ago.
The news comes after early concerns that problems with the device’s TrueDepth camera and OLED screen would lead to shortages until early 2018.
There are anecdotal reports of those who have already ordered an iPhone X receiving their handsets much sooner than anticipated.
Apple’s tenth anniversary smartphone has enjoyed rave reviews thanks to its all–screen design and use of Face ID.
However, it has also suffered from a series of minor glitches.
These include problems with screen burn–in, a green line appearing on the phone’s display and a crackling noise emerging from the earpiece speaker.
Apple is said to be offering those affected new phones.
