iPhone 4S Supply Running Out
Major retailers, such as Best Buy, have begun to run out of the coveted iPhone 4S. After selling four million units world wide in the first three days of sales, demand for the iPhone 4S is now outpacing the supply, analysts say.
Apple is still promising 1-2 week delivery for all online orders, which is fortunate for consumers, since the iPhone is virtually unavailable in stores. A check of in-store availability at several area Best Buy locations from their website found them completely unavailable at all locations. William Power, a market analyst of R.W. Baird, stated that "[the iPhone] was sold out at the vast majority of stores [they] checked with."
Best Buy does not state how long customers should expect to wait for the iPhone. It has been estimated that customers have to wait as little as one week to as long as one month.
