Getting hold of an iPhone 5s has apparently got harder, rather than easier, over the last few weeks. Though a couple of useful stock checkers have appeared online, both were somewhat basic and limited to the United States. Fortunately, a brand new iPhone 5s stock checker not only supports international iPhone 5s retailers, but it also offers an interesting insight into the most sought-after iPhone 5s models. The website, Stock iPhone 5s, was brought to our attention by 9to5Mac, and allows visitors to check on iPhone 5s stock using a Web interface. All three colors - space gray, white, and gold - can be searched out in their 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB iterations. The service then provides information on whether your chosen handset is in stock, whether it can be ordered, or whether orders are prohibited. Besides offering a stock checking service, however, Stock iPhone 5s also provides information on the requests made at its website. For example, it seems that the gold iPhone 5s is continuing to be the most popular: a huge 60 percent of people searching the website are looking for the gold handset, while 20 percent are searching for space gray models, and a further 20 percent are looking for the white and silver version. More than half are looking for 16GB models, while one-third are searching for 32GB handsets and just 14 percent are looking for 64GB iPhones. Of course, as 9to5Mac reminds us all, the website doesn't offer a true reflection of actual iPhone 5s demand: given that a large number of space gray iPhones have been available in most Apple Retail Stores, less searches will be made online at Stock iPhone 5s. If you're still on the hunt for an iPhone 5s handset, then head over to Stock iPhone 5s and see what you can find.
