Apple has recently lifted its two-per-customer limit on iPhone 5 purchases in the Apple Online Store.

Back towards the end of November, Apple started selling unlocked iPhone 5 smartphones in the United States. But there was a catch: in order to preserve stock, iPhone 5 purchases were limited to two per customer.

Two-per-customer.

However, it now seems as if Apple’s iPhone 5 stock is increasing. Customers can now have the option of purchasing more than two of the sixth-generation smartphones, if they like. Plus, handsets are shipping under a week in most places, and in some countries will be in the mail within two to three business days.

The iPad mini, though, still maintains its two-per-customer limit. We’ll let you know if this changes.
