Well we’ve been hearing the same story around the globe–iPhone 5s stock has been limited and now it appears to be a similar story in Canada. According to retail store sources, iPhone 5s stock remains limited. Two stores have told us the following information:
- Southgate Centre in Edmonton (via our own @meadorsmusings currently in the line up): “No 16GB or 64GB gold iPhone 5s. Very limited 32GB gold; confirmed if you order online it’ll be 7-10 days delivery.”
- East coast Apple Store: “Limited configurations of gold, space gray and silver iPhone 5s models”
The bottom line: iPhone 5s stock is limited and Apple hinted this online pre-orders were only made available to the iPhone 5c. Earlier today the start of Australia’s online orders similarly stated 7-10 days for delivery.
Under a week ago we reported Fido would only offer iPhone 5s to existing customers for upgrades and not new activations–now we know why. Other carrier sources are saying stock will be limited all around.
If you’re not already in line for the iPhone 5s, time to get running to the nearest Apple Store or Big 3 dealer if you want to increase your chances of getting the configuration you want. Check out this post to find others already in line to plan where you’re going to go.
Update: Square One Apple Store employees tell the line up there are no gold 16GB iPhone 5s configurations available:
