Apple slowly balancing out the supply and demand ratio

Apple slowly balancing out the supply and demand ratio
Apple's iPhone 6 launch has been nothing short of a success this year. Actually, the only thing that Cupertinians have to complain about is the fact that they can barely keep up with demand. The company's main supplier – Foxconn – has also felt a lot of pressure, and has had to hire 100 000 new employees; had to shift production, allegedly – twice, in an attempt to churn out more of the Asia market's favorite iPhone 6 Plus units; and has recently even invested in a new plant, dedicated to display panel manufacturing.

Well, in the midst of all of this, it seems Apple has managed to make at least a step towards supply and demand balance, as the iPhone 6 models in its online store now list as available in 5 – 7 days for the 16 GB model, and 7 – 10 days for both the 64 and 128 GB models. The 6 Plus can also be had in a 7 – 10 day interval, as long as you want the 16 GB model. The 64 GB one is still pinned at 2 – 3 weeks availability, while the 128 GB variant takes 3 – 4 weeks to ship. We wonder if this is due to the recent memory shenanigans.

Anyway – it seems the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is still selling like crazy. How long could that keep going?
