A survey of 60 US Apple stores has revealed that iPhone 5s stock may be finally meeting up with demand for the device. According to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster’s biweekly survey of Apple Stores in the States, iPhone 5s availability is now at around 90 percent of all iPhones in stock – that’s up from only 31 percent a fortnight ago.
By comparison, last year’s iPhone 5 accounted for 95 percent of all iPhone models in stock at this point in the year. Munster predicts that iPhone 5s availability will meet demand in December, mimicking the iPhone 5 last year.
Estimated shipping times for the iPhone 5s remain at 3 to 5 business on Apple Online Store. Your chances of snagging an iPhone 5s in store before the holidays may have improved in store but, of course, it is advisable to grab one sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
