If you’re looking for an iPhone 5s for that special someone on your gift list, and need to have it shipped, Apple’s online store has good news for you. All capacities and colors for carrier-locked versions of the handset are showing a 24-hour shipping time.
…though customers looking to buy an unlocked and unsubsidized handset must still wait a few days.
All colors and capacities of the iPhone 5s – yes gold too – on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are showing as available to ship in 24 hours.
If you’re looking to buy a contract-free iPhone 5s with a T-Mobile SIM card, there will still be a bit longer wait, one to three business days. A SIM-free unlocked model shows a three to five business day wait.
Reports on Monday said the Apple has caught up with demand for the popular devices, with all physical Apple Stores surveyed showing all colors, capacities, and carriers of the iPhone 5s as in stock.
One final note: The online Apple Store is offering free shipping, now through December 22nd.
