iPhone 5s Shipping Estimates Improve to 3 to 5 Days in Multiple Countries

As the holidays approach, Apple's iPhone 5s supplies are continuing to improve, alleviating the supply constraints the company has faced since the phone first launched on September 20.

In the Online Apple Store, iPhone 5s shipping estimates for all models and capacities have decreased to three to five days in multiple countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Asia Pacific. The iPhone 5s continues to ship within one to two weeks in European countries.

Just a week ago, iPhone 5s shipping estimates improved to one to two weeks in all countries, following an extended two to three week shipping estimate. iPhone 5s supplies have been tight since the phone launched, and shipping estimates fell to 7 to 10 days just hours after release.

Supplies of the gold iPhone were especially low, but reports have indicated that Apple has significantly ramped up its iPhone 5s production in recent weeks, while cutting back on iPhone 5c production. Just today, a report suggested that Foxconn would cease production of the iPhone 5c to focus entirely on the iPhone 5s.

Apple is now offering the iPhone 5s in more than 60 countries, with no noticeable impact on its overall supplies. In store quantities of the iPhone 5s also continue to improve, with most models and capacities available for immediate pickup in a large number of Apple retail stores across the United States.

I don't get what's the deal with that in the US. In Spain for sure and all Europe I think you can get the unlocked version since day 1. And hey, Apple Stores full up with lines of tourists who want the new iPhone and buy a pair of 64GB models (would probably buy more if they were allowed to).

Just imagine if New York stores did that. The sales would be 5x what they are without the unlocked version.


The factory unlocked version has been available in the US since day 1 as well. Some people just lack proper reading skills when on the Apple website it has said UNLOCKED with a Tmo SIM card since day 1.
