If the 3-4 week wait time for a new iPhone 5 has kept you from placing your order, you’ll be happy to know that some progress is being made. TechCrunch noticed that as of today, the wait time has been cut down to 2-3 weeks. Ok, it’s not much, but at least it’s something!

In fact, he made it sound like producing the allegedly difficult-to-assemble iPhone 5 was a losing battle. Though now it appears that supplies are beginning to meet demand a tad quicker, the day when Apple can boast the new iPhone as “in stock” is likely still a ways off.
