Apple has Almost Caught up With iPhone 5 Demand

We told you yesterday that iPhone 5 ship times were improving, and now comes word that supply of the coveted devices is also improving in the Apple retail stores. Just in time for the holidays! YAY!

AppleInsider:

Gene Munster and his team at Piper Jaffray have continued their nightly checks of 100 Apple Stores. They found that supply of AT&T and Verizon models has “significantly improved,” while Sprint units remain readily available.

Munster says that as the holiday nears, consumers should likely be able to walk into a Apple Store and be able to readily purchase an iPhone 5.

Checks of Apple Store’s Tuesday night showed “dramatic improvements in availability,” as the AT&T model was available at 82% of stores checked, with the Verizon model showing as available at 72% of the stores. The Sprint iPhone 5 was in stock at 92% of stores.

It looks like Apple’s production partner is slowly but surely getting the hang of assembling the “most difficult device that Foxconn has ever assembled.”
