Apple's iPhone 5s supplies appear to be improving, following significant supply constraints that have plagued the phone since its initial September 20 launch. In the Online Apple Store, iPhone 5s shipping estimates have decreased and all models and capacities, including gold, now shipping within one to two weeks in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
Shortly after the launch of the iPhone 5s, shipping estimates for all colors and capacities slipped to 7 to 10 days and fell to a vague "October" timeline. In the middle of the month, shipping estimates were updated to two to three weeks, where they have remained until today.
Apple's improved shipping estimates come following second and third wave launches on October 25 and November 1 that brought the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c to an additional 50 countries.
The iPhones are now available in more than 60 countries, bringing Apple closer to its stated goal of availability in 100 countries by the end of the year.
