iPhone 5 back in stock at Apple Stores, online shipping down to one week

We’ve heard a lot about Apple struggling to keep up with demand for its latest products. The iPhone 5 in particular has been the subject of a lot of talk thanks to Foxconn workers having issues with the quality and quantity demands placed on them by Cupertino. The sad fact is, it’s Apple most popular product to date and is also the hardest to assemble.

This morning we receive some great news (via: AppleInsider) that most of Apple’s brick-and-mortar stores do have stock of the 6th generation iPhone. Analyst, Gene Munster states “We believe the iPhone 5 has finally reached a point where consumers can walk into an Apple Store and walk out with a phone.” Which is great news, especially with the Christmas period fast approaching.

20 US stores were polled in total, with virtually all of them having an adequate amount of stock for walk-in customers. Meaning, you’ll no longer need to use the buy and reserve online service. The stores were also found to have a good number of Verizon handsets in stock too, which has been the hardest to get hold of up until now.

Let us know if you’re planning on buying an iPhone 5 over the festive period in the comments.
