Apple has improved shipping times on several iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models ahead of the holidays, especially in the 16 GB range. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 previously required 7 to 10 days to ship after being ordered, but that number has now dropped to just 5 to 7 days. Shipping times for the 64 and 128 GB models remains unchanged, however.

The 16 GB iPhone 6 Plus also saw an improvement, with the larger model now shipping in just 7 to 10 days. Unlike the smaller handset, the 64 and 128 GB versions of the 6 Plus are also getting reduced shipping times at 2 to 3 weeks (down from 3 to 4 weeks before that).

This is especially good news for those trying to get their hands on the Plus model, which has been facing constrained supplies for some time now. A few weeks ago T-Mobile CEO John Legere said that it will still be a little while longer before we see supply finally catch up with the demand for the two new smartphones. He also noted that around half of the orders T-Mobile got for new iPhones was for the larger model.
