iMac shipping estimates continue to decrease, now 'Within 24 hours' in North America

Apple catching up on iMac demand, shipping lead time drops to 'Within 24 hours' for North America

Apple is continuing to catch up with demand when it comes to the new iMacs. Though Tim Cook warned that the iMac and iPad mini would see continued supply constraints, the iMac has finally made it to the point where supply and demand are almost even.

It has taken three months for the iMac to reach this point. Other countries are still showing longer lead times, though those should improve in the coming days and weeks. It appears as though Apple has focused on building the stock configurations of the machines as doing a simple custom configuration, such as additional RAM, results in a longer lead time.

 

By being able to meet demand, Apple should be able to perform better during this quarter, hopefully pleasing investors who have been punishing the stock in recent months.
