The improved availability of the iPhone X is due to manufacturers surmounting production problems and not a lack of a demand for Apple’s new smartphone, one of the tech world’s best connected analysts claims.
Ming Chi Kuo claims that suppliers have started producing key components much faster, allowing Apple to get the iPhone X to customers within a week of them placing their order.

Challenges related to the phone’s LTE antenna and TrueDepth camera meant just minutes after launch the iPhone X was listed with six to eight week wait times for customers who ordered it.
The boost in supply of the handset over the past week had led some commentators to suggest that demand for Apple’s tenth anniversary smartphone was not as high as had been anticipated.
Kuo says this is not the case. However, Apple is yet to release official sales figures.
It’s likely to reveal an overall iPhone sales figure along with its next set of financial results, which are due early in the New Year.
The iPhone X, with its new, all–screen design and TrueDepth camera for Face ID, has received rave reviews, with rival devices set to mimic many of its features in 2018.
