    Default Apple Pulls iPhone 5S for In-Store Pickup


    What a difference a day makes.

    Just 24 hours after we first reported that Apple made the iPhone 5S available for in-store pickup at many (but not all) Apple retail stores, this option has effectively come to an end for the time being.

    On Tuesday, amidst ever-increasing demand for the short-supply of new iPhone 5S devices, online buyers are no longer greeted with an option to pick up the flagship iPhone at their nearest Apple Store.

    Although the iPhone 5C is still available for in-store pickup, the iPhone 5S becomes harder to find with each passing day.

    Prior to the weekend launch of both devices, industry watchers and analysts warned of limited supply. But in response to the 9 million units Apple sold in just the first three days, supplies have managed to dry up even faster than expected. And, as of this writing, it isn't clear how soon the iPhone 5S will become more readily available.

    Tbh it's been a complete clusterfuck of a release. They should have made pre-orders available 7-10 days in advance of release.

    If they did that, then customers would not be forced onto the 5C at the apple store (unable to pick up a 5S of course).

    I ordered mine (32GB Gold) yesterday...it says it probably won't ship until Nov. 1st-Nov. 21st! So lame, that's forever away! I think Apple did this on purpose so they could make the news with "outages" and "pushed back shipping dates." They should be prepared for this by now! Yes I'm only complaining cause I have to wait so f-ing long!

    You waited all year, what's a few more days? You need to quell that 'instant gratification' affliction you have. Same for anyone who wanted a 5S and bought a 5C because they just couldn't wait, or a different colored 5S. Jeesh people, just wait a short while and get what you want.

    Yeah..that 5C hosed production. Apple is very concerned with the newly opened doors of China as they should be. At the same time, finding a 5S is hard these days..especially AT&T versions.

    Lol! I could care less when I get the phone, obviously I'd prefer sooner than later like most people. A few days?? The email said the shipping date was between Nov 1st and Nov 21st...I think that's more than a few day...or is my math wrong?.......I made that comment because I'm excited to get the iPhone 5s, so don't try and go off on some moral argument that I need to be patient and not expect instant gratification...

    Maybe he's implying the fact that apple should have been prepared before the release so people get it on time. Get your nose out of apples behind...

    My dad got on and ordered the 64GB gold on AT&T for pickup at our local Apple store, and when we went back right after he ordered it, it said that there were 0 left in stock at that store. The guy that sold it to us said that it was the first gold one that he had sold to anyone, and the guy at the AT&T store said that it was the first one that he had even seen. Pretty crazy.

    My 16 gig gold was shipped sunday from China, it left Alaska earlier this afternoon and is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow! Got someone who wants to trade their 16 gig space gray + 250$ for my gold! Winning!

    That's what is said after I ordered mine! They said if I got an email that it is mine and there waiting. I'm pretty pumped.
