It has roughly been three months since Apple launched its new smartphones, the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c. Whereas it is widely believed that the latter hasn’t been selling as well as originally anticipated, there’s no denying the fact that the iPhone 5s has proved to be a hit. With intense demand comes a demand supply gap. Recently Apple has improved shipping times of the smartphone, and now according to Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray, Apple Retail Stores in U.S. appear to have the iPhone 5s in stock.

Munster surveyed 60 Apple Retail Stores in the U.S. and found that all of them had the device in store, which equals to 100 percent availability. Just a fortnight ago, the same survey revealed that only 24 percent of the stores had the smartphone in stock. In the start of October, this figure was down to just 8 percent. Improving supply will only serve Apple’s interests. The company has managed to get supply to its stores ahead of the lucrative Christmas shopping season. More stores carrying the devices means that customers will have no difficulties in picking up the smartphone of their choice, sales are expected to surge around the holiday shopping season. Just last week Apple improved the iPhone 5s shipping times from its online store to just 1-3 business days.
