“With the iPad mini hitting shelves Friday, supply of Apple’s iPhone 5 has not yet caught up with demand in the U.S., according to a survey of Apple retail stores,” Sam Oliver reports for AppleInsider.
“Gene Munster and his team at Piper Jaffray polled 70 Apple Stores to check on availability of the iPhone 5,” Oliver reports. “They found that supply is generally constrained for the more popular AT&T and Verizon models, though inventory is said to be improving for Sprint.”
Oliver reports, “Piper Jaffray also conducted a poll this week of 738 U.S. customers which indicated demand for the iPhone 5 is increasing.
