iPhone 5S Supplies Dry Up Quickly Around the Globe
Online sales of the iPhone 5S have kicked off in several different countries and a number of iPhone 5S models, the gold in particular seem to be short in supply all around the world. As the Apple Stores in the UK, France and Germany come back online, itís clear that the shortages extend to European customers as well. Immediately after coming back up, the UK Apple Store displayed shipping times of 7-10 days for all colors and capacities, as did both of the online stores for France and Germany.
In Australia and China, online Apple Store shipping times for the iPhone 5S rapidly slipped to 7-10 days for all colors and capacities, with immediate unavailability of the 64 GB gold version. Appleís Hong Kong and Singapore online stores have even longer wait times, displaying an October shipping estimate for all iPhone 5S models.
Even in the United States and Canada all models are said to now be shipping in October which means the previous analyst predictions of an iPhone 5S supply constraint all turned out to be true. Based on the extended shipping times seen around the world, itís likely that the demand will be far greater than the supply for quite some time.
