Apple's iPhone 5s Shipping Estimates Are Improving In Numerous Countries
Apple's iPhone 5s is now shipping in one to two weeks for a number of different countries spanning the globe. Provided customers order through their local Apple Online Store, it looks like the iPhone 5s - in all three colors, and in all three iterations - is indeed estimated to ship within two weeks, meaning orders could still reach consumers in time for Christmas. Though this is indeed the case in the U.S. Apple Online Store, the same can be said of numerous international stores, too. As you can see in the below image, the British Apple Online Store, for example, is also shipping iPhone 5s handsets in the same time frame.

Apple reportedly increased production of the handset, however, and at long last, it seems iPhone 5s supply is increasing. Though the iPad Air was in "plentiful" supply back when the 9.7-inch tablet launched earlier this month, rumors and analysis indicated that the same could not be said of the iPad mini with Retina display. The second-generation iPad mini launched earlier today, somewhat unexpectedly; however, as of this writing, the 16GB and 32GB Wi-Fi only models are still shipping between one and three business days, which is promising. We'll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
