    Are Apple's supply issues with regard to the new iPhone 5s finally resolved?

    It appears to be that way, says Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster. The prominent industry analyst and resident Apple watcher asserts that Apple's supply is now keeping pace with demand. This, naturally, is great news for Apple as the holiday shopping season is officially set to commence in three days with Black Friday.

    Gene Munster says he's been tracking the availability of the iPhone 5s in dozens of Apple stores (60 or so) on a routine basis in recent weeks. The results show that the iPhone 5s supply has "increased from 31% two weeks ago to 90% of the all the models for the various carriers."

    By Munster's latest estimates, Apple is projected to sell 55.5 million iPhones in the December quarter.

    Although we've been hearing that the iPhone 5c is struggling, today's report from Forbes doesn't make it seem all that bad for Apple's low-cost smartphone.

    "While the iPhone 5c is definitely performing below what analysts thought a lower priced iPhone would do (because it isn’t really much of a lower priced iPhone), it is selling," the report reads.

    Probably true. I walked into a Verizon store 2 hours ago and bought one in 20 minutes. Silver 64 GB.

    The decreased their production on the 5C. So it makes sense that they have more resources to manufacture the 5S

    Slowing sales of iPhone 5s may be due to
    the delay of Evader's jailbreak.
    Consumers are once again looking over the
    Android products especially the price and
    Potential freedom.

    The iPhone has no interest for me until they increase the screen to at least 4.6"
    Are you listening, Apple ?
    Recent reports suggest you are.
    If so, you'll pull millions of iPhone-defectors out of exile, back into the Apple fold.

    Oh, and I want dynamic text reflow/wrapping for all browsers too, please.
    Thanks.
    I'll be waiting patiently.

    There was a shortage? Hmm. Wouldn't know that since both Apple stores in my city had a few dozen of EVERY color and storage size in stock.
