Apple Has Nearly Caught Up With iPhone 5s Demand

A survey by Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster reveals that Apple has nearly caught up to demand for the iPhone 5s.

Munster's latest biweekly survey of 60 U.S. Apple Stores found that availability of the 5s has risen to 90% of all models in stock. Two weeks ago only 30% of models were in stock and at the beginning of October only 10% were in stock.

CNET notes that at this point last year, the iPhone 5 accounted for 95 percent of all iPhones in stock. However, availability of the iPhone 5s at AT&T and Verizon is better than it was for the iPhone 5 last year.

Ship times for the iPhone 5s via Apple's online store have improved as well. Currently, the wait is 3-5 business days for the iPhone 5s to ship. That's compared to 2-3 weeks earlier this month. Munster believes that supply of the iPhone 5s will meet demand in early December.

Munster also indicated that supply of the iPad Air should meet demand before the holiday season. Ship times are currently 5-7 business days for the tablet.

Simple answer you can't! All A5, A6 & A7 idevices can not be downgraded (e.g. iPhone 4S, 5 & 5S) as Apple has stopped signing lower iOS versions.

I have an idea for ios 7 next update but I don't know how to make a video of like the animated concepts! Moving everything from ios 6 onto ios 7 so people can choose between combinations of old and new looks (ios 6=old and 7=new) such as old apps with new web siri etc. or old apps with old siri and new web etc.! With me anyone?
