'Golden gate': Why was the iPhone 5s launch day plagued by a critical lack of gold?

Apple launched the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s today and while the pop-art inspired iPhone 5c - thanks to it being an easier-to-manufacture branch of last year's iPhone 5 with an even easier-to-manufacture polycarbonate shell - was, by all accounts, in plentiful supply despite pre-orders starting a week ago, the higher-end iPhone 5s was not. Especially the gold version. My Apple Store had 7 and no 16GB models. Other stores we've heard about had 2 to 10. We haven't heard of non-Apple retailers having many, if any gold stock either. By any measure, they were incredibly, ludicrously constrained. And the reaction by die-hard, line-up-overnighter customers has been loud.

Don't forget to update your iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c to iOS 7.0.1

As was noted in some of the early iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c reviews, there's a small update to iOS 7 out there specifically for those devices. So, if you've picked up either new iPhone this morning, don't forget to head into the Software Update section in the Settings app, and snag it for yourselves. The update to iOS 7.0.1 is a pretty tiny 17.5MB in size, so it shouldn't take too long to get installed.
