iPhone 5 production yields improving, iPad mini - not so much
The iPhone 5 is one pretty impressive device from construction standpoint, but that has also caused significant trouble for Foxconn, the company that assembles the handset. One Foxconn official even said that the iPhone 5 is "the most difficult device" they have ever worked on. Still, employees are obviously getting better, and more and more iPhones are currently flying off the assembly lines.
Things seem to stand a bit differently with the iPad mini, according to Wu. His contacts have revealed that demand for the small tablet is still very strong, so Apple will be continuing to torture its customers with scarce availability and long shipping dates for the time being.

This could also imply that may be demand for iPhone 5 has decreased, so they are shipping on time............

iPhones for the first few months of each release are on backorder. Since this has been available for two plus months this is no shock.
I was in an Apple Store today and outside the 16GB black mini's they sell out all the others once they get them.
