iPhone 5 Now 'In Stock' in Apple's Online Stores for Several Countries

Just days after shipping estimates for new iPhone 5 orders improved to 2-4 business days, they are taking the final step with Apple now listing the device as "in stock" in many of its online stores.


We've noticed the new "in stock" quotes in Apple's online stores for the U.S, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand, while a number of other countries are still seeing estimates of 1-3 business days for the time being. Unlocked iPhone 5 models in the U.S. are also still seeing 1-3 business day estimates.

Apple has achieved supply-demand balance for the iPhone 5 just ahead of the holidays and even as the company is working to bring the device to more than 50 additional countries this month.

Apple's deadlines for other holiday delivery of other products are also approaching, with U.S. customers having until December 12 to place their iPad mini orders with guaranteed delivery before Christmas. Other products are already unavailable for the holidays, with the new 27-inch iMac now seeing January shipping estimates as Apple works to deliver the first units to customers.

Haven't ever played with one before so I won't say anything else about it other than how ridiculous people look with them up to their face.

Looks like the Samsung marketng team are out in full force on Macrumors again. It doesn't surprise me. iPhone 5 launch put a serious dent in S3 sales.

In two years you'll still be able to sell your iPhone 5 for $250, while you'll be lucky to get $100 out of the S3. That's a huge plus for Apple in my opinion, upgrades become very affordable.

Love my Note 2 as well. If Apple copied Samsung we might have some competition.

As with any gadget in fast-progressing technological world.

Got my 5 a week after launch in Canada (had to time it with the stores delivery timing)

LOVE the phone, this is coming back from a SIII. I have the full apple ecosystem at home, so an iphone is the perfect fit. Plus iOS is great, as stale as it is, I prefer having no bugs and problems like I did with android

Not surprising - as the S3 costs half of the 64 GB iPhone 5. In other words today you pay 900€ for the iPhone 5 and 500 for the S3 - so you lose 400 on the S3 and 650 on the iP5 according your equation.
(64 BG mini SD 48€ on Amazon - so ist 200 bucks difference if you compare the then 80GB S3 with the 64GB iP5)

(Talking about the Note 2)
1st: people with self confidence don't care what others think.
2nd: it is a smartphone - meaning it's made for surfing, ebooks etc. and for that it is just great.
