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.

iphone 5 in stock
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.

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.

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.

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

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
