iPhone 5s Shipping Times Improve As Apple Catches Up With Demand



iPhone 5s shipping times have improved this week as Apple slowly catches up with demand for the new device. At the beginning of this week, customers ordering the handset through the Apple online store would have seen shipping estimates of 2-3 weeks, but as of today, they’re down to 1-2 weeks.

As expected, Apple sold record numbers of the iPhone 5s over its launch weekend, and it didn’t take long for shipping times to slip as the Cupertino company struggled to meet the initial demand. They eventually reached 2-3 weeks, and it’s been that way since September.

But the delay is finally starting to improve. All three storage options in all three colors now face a 1-2 week wait, no matter which carrier you choose to use them with. This applies to the Apple online store for the U.S., the U.K. and other international markets.
