In the months and weeks preceding the iPhone X launch, it was widely reported that Apple's next-gen iPhone, due to some manufacturing issues, was going to be extremely hard to find at launch. Some analysts even projected that Apple wouldn't be able to meet demand well into 2018. But as it turns out, iPhone X supply is much more plentiful than initially anticipated. Just a few days ago, for example, shipping times on iPhone X orders in the U.S. dropped down to 1-2 weeks, a huge improvement from the 4-5 week shipping estimates we saw when the device first launched earlier this month.
Commenting on the matter, reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently issued a research note to investors (obtained via MacRumors) where he explained that more plentiful iPhone X supply is the result of improved production as opposed to being an indicator of perhaps weaker than anticipated demand.
