Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster reports that his nightly checks of supplies at 100 Apple Stores shows significant improvements.
AT&T and Verizon have shown dramatic improvements in availability, while Sprint has maintained consistent availability. Last night, our checks indicated that Sprint phones were in stock at 92% of Apple Stores, AT&T was available at 82% of stores and Verizon at 72% of stores. Additionally, we note that wait times for online phone orders dropped to two weeks as of today.
We believe that within the next two weeks that customers will be able to purchase iPhone 5s at Apple Stores same day.
This is great news for those looking to purchase iPhone 5s as holiday gifts and will help Apple move even more units.
