The iPhone 5’s shipping times have begun to drop to just one week in some countries, including: New Zealand, Singapore, and Australia. We expect more to follow soon. Getting the iPhone 5’s ship times down will be a big plus for Apple, because it wants to get as many iPhone 5s in consumer hands as possible this holiday season.

The iPhone 5’s Apple online store shipping times dropped from “3-4 weeks” to “2-3 weeks” on Nov. 12.
