Apple iPhone 5s first availability wave hits, reported low supply

20 September, 2013

The iPhone 5s is launching today in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore and the UK.

The device can be bough from Apple's own retail stores in the US with a plan for Sprint, Verizon or AT&T or from T-Mobile (although T-Mo iPhones are expected to ship between 7 and 10 business days).

The cost in the US is the usual - 16GB for $199, 32 GB for $299 or 64GB for $399 with a contract. We seriously urge you to get at least the 32GB option as the available user storage on the 16GB version is less than 14GB with no option to expand that later.

As for European prices you can get the iPhone 5s in Germany SIM-free for 699, 799 and 899 for either 16/32/64GB and 549, 629 and 709 for the 16/32/64GB in the UK.

The iPhone 5s numbers are reportedly low so unless you're first in line you may not be able to grab one off the shelf today. The same goes for the Apple's online stores, where the device has already been back-ordered.
