Apple suppliers have finally produced enough iPhone 5s units to catch up with the demand, latest survey claims. Well, almost - currently about 90% of the flagship models are available for purchase at the company’s retail stores. And it’s a very substantial increase, I must admit. iPhone 5s supply grew from 31% on November 11th to what we have now.
After quick September’s stockouts, Apple’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will become available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the U.K. and the U.S.A. And this is expected to happen… today.
Sources at multiple U.S. carriers said that the inventory of the new phone is significantly less than expected.
“We will have grotesquely unavailable inventory,” was how one carrier source put it.
Another carrier confirmed 'extremely disappointing shipments' from Apple. However, it was stated that the demand for the iPhone 5s is likely to be slightly lower than expected. It seems the bright colors of the low-cost iPhone 5c have captured eyes of customers.
The new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will start selling in stores on September 20th at 8:00 a.m.
As is not unheard of for the company, Apple is already beginning to stockpile units in the United States for quick distribution to carrier partners, other third-party retail partners, and its own channels. With the new iPhone hardware expected to be introduced at next Tuesday's media event, Apple's past history would suggest that the new models would launch in the U.S. and other first wave countries about a week and a half later, with Friday, September 20 being the most likely date.
As Apple’s September 10th iPhone unveiling approaches, we’ve heard that Verizon Wireless is blocking its retail employees from requesting vacations between Wednesday, September 18th and Sunday, September 22nd. Based on Apple historically shipping new versions of the iPhone about a week and half following the unveiling, it would make sense for the new iPhones to arrive for customers on Friday, September 20th.
Moreover, Verizon is rumored to have little stocks of the 32GB and 64GB iPhone 5 models. So we may assume that the carrier is expecting the launch of new generation of devices. Walmart has also decreased the price of the iPhone 5 to $98 with Verizon contract.

The report says that Tim Cook is not organizing the bi-monthly iPhone software meeting so popular with Steve Jobs. The ex-CEO used the meetings to discuss each plan feature in iOS. "That's not Tim's style at all," said one person familiar with those meetings. "He delegates."
The famous billionaire Carl Icahn has posted a couple of tweets, where he claims that Apple is 'extremely undervalued' and he is planning to obtain a bigger share of Apple.
We currently have a large position in APPLE. We believe the company to be extremely undervalued. Spoke to Tim Cook today. More to come.
Had a nice conversation with Tim Cook today. Discussed my opinion that a larger buyback should be done now. We plan to speak again shortly.
The result of Icahn's tweets was Apple's stock upsurging by 5%.
