At least one U.K. Apple Store sells out of the Apple iPhone 5s

0. phoneArena 20 Sep 2013, 08:59 posted on

Just a few days ago,, there was talk that the Apple iPhone 5s was going to be hard to find on launch day because of a couple of rumored production problems with the fingerprint sensor and the camera; add to that the lack of a pre-order period for the full-featured iPhone, and demand for the Apple iPhone 5s was bound to be extraordinary today...

You should let it go, it's only going to give you ulcers. More importantly, you miss the trees for the forest. Simple truth is this, you have a choice with Apple, it's not like there isn't. If you want an iPhone, that's your choice. If you don't, that's your choice as well. People will buy what they want, it's their choice to or not to.

From where such statistics? Or it is just your assumptions?

Just by analyzing the picture, it's pretty obvious. I honestly don't know why you always ask for statistics and data like you're a scientist or something. Take a deep breathe, and chill.

"Just by analyzing the picture, it's pretty obvious."

In other words it is just your assumptions.

"I honestly don't know why you always ask for statistics and data like you're a scientist or something."

I honestly also don't know why you always write some statistics like you're a scientist or something even if this statistics are just your assumptions and nothing more.

The point is that there is no reason to spread bulls**t statistics like you did. ;)

How many units were sold? Apple will sell a boat load but if this individual store sold out because they didn't receive a full compliment due to supply shortages, then this makes more sense.

Exactly! Being "sold out" means nothing without numbers to put it into context...we had locations that we were only shipping or or 2 5S's to so they were "sold out" after selling 2 of them! Now with this being a Apple store you'd think they'd have a least a few hundred at launch but you never know.

Just not a fan of articles without relevance. Apple always sells a ton of iPhones the first day of release, it's not much of a stretch to find one that sells out. By the end of the day a lot of stores will sell out, it's a strong seller. Knowing if it was impacted because of supply shortages is something altogether different.

Since no one knows the actual numbers of on hand iphones in the store--this could mean absolutely nothing. If you had 10 per store--then this is not news worthy. I was in Verizon the other night when the network went down because of all the ios 7 downloads and they had 20 phones on hand to go on sell Friday. So I do expect them to sell out.

The 5S is a great phone, worthy of popularity and of being sold out... however, after the recent article about low shipping numbers of the 5S, "Sold Out" was kind of to be expected.

Maybe it's a standard thing, but the signage already being available that the 5S is sold out just makes it look like a manufactured marketing stunt here.

How many hours ahead of the US is England? If it's the end of the day there, it's not so much of a stunt.
