Apple began offering an in-store pickup option for online orders of the new iPhone 5s last Monday, regardless of almost no gold stock available and extreme shortages for the other two colors. The next day, likely because the Cupertino corporation wanted to leave stock for walk-in brick-and-mortar store customers, the option was taken offline.
But today, as reported by MacRumors (and as predicted by 9to5Mac last week), the option has been reinstated. However, as is to be expected, supply is still very tight and the phone is still only available at select Apple stores. The silver and gold models are showing the most limited supply, with the “Space Gray” model being out of stock at most locations as well.
Have you had any luck getting your hands on an iPhone 5s?
