Apple sees high demand for iPhone 5s, several models sold out

Apple has seen high demand for their new smartphones, particularly the iPhone 5s. Apple's new iPhones went on sale this morning. While Apple did not release any numbers, something typically done after the first full weekend of sales, they said that some models of the 5s were sold out, according to All Things D:

“Demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and we are currently sold out or have limited supply of certain iPhone 5s models in some stores,” an Apple representative told AllThingsD.

Shipping times for the iPhone 5s on the Apple Online Store quickly slipped from 1-3 business days to 7-10, with the gold version of all models simply listed as shipping in October.One thing we don't know for sure is just how much of Apple's supply the iPhone 5s made up compared to the iPhone 5c. We had already heard about constraints on 5s supply at carrier stores, but how representative of the overall 5s supply is unclear. It's also been reported that Apple has asked suppliers to ramp up production of the gold 5s model, following higher than expected demand.
