Apple recently opened the gates for iPhone 5s’ preorder and initial stock for most models has already depleted. Shipping date for the iPhone 5s gold model has been slipped to October and the bad part is – no exact date is given, so one can assume one could end up waiting for an entire month before they get their gold phone.
The initial inventory of the iPhone 5s is very limited and that is the reason behind supplies dwindling so fast. Apple was earlier also said to be have some problems in getting the fingerprint sensors prepared at high volumes.
So, if you really want the gold mode, the best way is to visit an Apple store and get in (long) line.
