Apple has asked the suppliers to produce more gold colored iPhone 5S components as the initial supply of gold iPhone 5S has almost cleared and after few minutes of selling the smartphone online, Apple’s website is now changed the shipping time to “7 to 10 days”.
Now, it seems all 3 colors and 3 variants of the phones (16GB, 32GB & 64GB) has almost sold out and the delivery date for all those devices has been postponed by the company. Gold iPhone 5S shipping date is further postponed to the October month.
Supplies of white and gray iPhone 5S devices held up better. At 2:45 a.m. PT, the Apple store still had enough stock for a ship date of less than 3 days. At 1 a.m. in Germany, France, and the UK, those models had ship date of 7 to 10 days. By 2:45 a.m. PT, though, all three colors had slipped to October in the European countries.
Many people who wanted to buy the Gold iPhone 5S, is now shifting their mind to buy one of the other 2 colors of the smartphone as the result of “sold out” – in online stores and in local Apple stores.
