Supply has finally caught up with demand for the iPhone 5s, nearly two and a half months after the Apple handset was first released. A new analysis shows that 100 percent of iPhone 5s models are now available at Apple retail stores across the United States, according to AppleInsider. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has found that iPhone 5s supply has improved “dramatically” from just two weeks ago. Just 24 percent of Apple’s retail stores had stock of all iPhone 5s models at the end of November. At the start of October, that number stood at just 8 percent. In announcing that iPhone 5s supply has caught up with demand, Munster says "In reflecting on the supply for the 5S product launch overall, we believe that net-net Apple has done a better job in supplying stores with phones proportional to demand." The iPhone 5s first launched on Sept. 20.
