iPhone X Now Available In More Than 70 Countries Worldwide
As promised, Apple’s iPhone X is now available in a whole host of new countries, allowing more people than ever to pick up the latest and greatest flagship to come out of the brain of design chief Jony Ive.
In total 13 new countries now have the iPhone X available for sale as of today, including Albania, Bosnia, Cambodia, Kosovo, Macau, Macedonia, Malaysia, Montenegro, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, and Turkey. This brings the total number of countries where iPhone X is on sale to over 70.
Of all those countries listed above, the iPhone X is being sold by authorized third-party resellers and, of course, carriers. The only exceptions to that rule are Turkey where Apple has its own retail presence in Zorlu Center and Akasya Acibadem, and Macau, where an Apple store is based at Galaxy Macau. Alongside those 13 countries, Apple has also added Israel with sales beginning there this past Thursday.
Upon launch in the new countries initial shipping times appear to suggest that Apple has been able to set aside stock, with delivery times generally between one and three business days. However, that is expected to begin to stretch out towards a lengthier wait as people get their orders in.
That being said, wait times internationally have generally improved of late, with the United States and the bulk of Europe now showing delivery estimates of around two weeks. This is in stark contrast to early rumors which had Apple likely to be short on stock until the new year.
With the iPhone X now a couple of weeks in, and with delivery windows shrinking, it is becoming clear that Apple’s attempts to increase supply as suggested by CEO Tim Cook, have been able to make a difference to the length of time new buyers will have to wait before getting their hands on the hottest smartphone of the year.
