Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro supplies and global delivery lead time are now improving since the Foxconn facility in China faced some troubles.
While the supplies of the higher-end iPhones are getting better, it is still far from the non-Pro offerings of the Cupertino-based tech giant.

However, it means that some folks might get lucky to get their hands on the next-generation flagship of Apple during the holiday season.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro Supplies, Delivery Lead Time Reportedly Improved
As per the latest report by Apple Insider, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max supplies and delivery lead times have recently improved.
The news outlet reports that the financial giant JP Morgan tracker shows that the supplies of higher-end Apple flagships are improving these days. In turn, it should now take less time before customers get their hands on the latest iPhone. A sigh of relief for folks who want to give it as a holiday gift.
It looks like the Cupertino giant is now working to reduce the delays in iPhone 14 Pro deliveries.
The higher-end iPhones are definitely harder to come since they debuted last September.
According to a recent story by The Verge, its delivery lead time got even worse due to the COVID-19 lockdowns in China. It has forced the facilities making the Apple flagship to operate at reduced capacity.

Not to mention that the workers at the Foxconn facilities started protesting. And as such, the supplies of the iPhones have become more elusive than ever.
But this time, Apple Insider, citing the JP Morgan Apple Product Availability Tracker, says that customers now have to wait fewer days before their iPhone orders reach their homes. It is a noticeable improvement from the wait times last week, which stretched to 35 days.
iPhone 14 Pro Deliveries: How Long Does it Take
JP Morgan claims that the estimated delivery wait time for the Pro lineup is now down to less than a month, or roughly 29 days.
It is worth noting that a week prior, Apple is asking its buyers to wait for at least 35 days. So the new lead times are quite an improvement. A shine of hope for those who want to get their hands on it.
However, if you are looking to buy it in time for the holidays, it only shows that you are out of luck.
The tracker notes that the deliveries in the United Kingdom are down to 27 days compared to their previous 32 days’ wait time.
Meanwhile, in the United States, it is a bit shorter. Buyers would only have to wait up to 25 days. It is a stark improvement from the former 33 days lead time.
