As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, Apple began improving shipping times on several iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, especially in the 16 GB range.
The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 previously was shipped 7 to 10 days after being ordered, but that number has been shortened and now estimates just 5 to 7 days. Shipping times for the 64 and 128 GB models remains unchanged-3 to 4 weeks.
Currently, both 64GB and 128GB iPhone 6 models, as well as the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus, are available to ship in all colors and on all major U.S. cellular carriers.
As for the iPhone 6 Plus, the 16 GB model also saw an improvement and now can be shipped in just 7 to 10 days.
Shipment times for the 64 and 128 GB versions of the 6 Plus are slightly improved from previous 3 to 4 weeks to 2 to 3 weeks. According to the Online Apple Store, most iPhone 6 Plus variants operating on U.S. Networks are shipped 1 to 2 weeks, while only a few 16GB versions are available for in-store pickup.
Several other countries in Europe and Asia are also seeing the same improved shipping estimates from the online Apple Store.
Apple introduced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at an event on Sept. 9. Initial supply quickly ran dry as both devices saw pre-order delivery dates slip just hours after going live.
Apple has been working hard to enhance iPhone 6 and 6 Plus supply and reportedly delayed mass production of the rumored iPad Pro in attempts to focus its resources on higher iPhone 6 Plus output.
According to early analysis, users in the U.S. prefer the iPhone 6 to the 6 Plus by 3:1.
