Apple cuts lead time for the Apple iPhone 5s to 1-2 weeks
Demand, meet supply. Actually, while both demand and supply for the Apple iPhone 5s can't exactly shake hands yet, they are getting closer. According to a published report on Monday, every country with an online Apple Store is showing just a 1-2 week lead time for the Apple iPhone 5s.

Just 48 hours after launch, the full featured new iPhone model sold out its inventory and Apple merely promised buyers of the phone that they would receive their device in "October". Following that, Apple listed a 2-3 week lead time until the just posted reduction to 1-2 weeks.

Meanwhile, the plastic-coated Apple iPhone 5c has always been available for transit in just 24 hours after ordering. There are some contradictions about how well the iPhone 5c is selling. A couple of reports say that Apple has cut orders to Pegatron for deliveries of the device while another report says that Apple is adding suppliers for the phone.

Apple wants to have the new iPhone models available in 100 countries by the end of the year, a figure that is now up to 60.

You will have to wait for the report at the end of the next quarter (because PA would know...right, they rehash other people's news). Still, the last quarter's sales had a lot of iPhones selling but margins were lower meaning maybe the 5s and 5c weren't in the majority of those sold. Apple doesn't report individual model shipments or sales and combines them to be vague in a more innovative way than the competition (which reports shipments) so no dice on accuracy in any regard.
