“While we have sold out of our initial supply, stores continue to receive iPhone 5 shipments regularly and customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date. We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough iPhone 5s for everyone,” Cook added.
Apple’s iPhone 5 is now available in United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the UK.
