New App Shows Apple’s Gold iPhone 5S Is Still in High Demand
Are you tired of searching different websites to check the availability of a particular version of Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 5S? A new website makes it easy to check the availability of the iPhone 5S by compiling live updates from various online vendors around the world.
StockiPhone5S.com provides users with live iPhone 5S availability monitoring in several major markets, including Canada, the U.S., China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Germany, France, and the U.K. The website specifies which colors and capacities of the iPhone 5S are available at each online vendor. For example, the website collects live updates from AT&T (NYSE:T), T-Mobile (NYSE:TMUS), Verizon (NYSE:VZ), and Apple in the U.S.
According to StockiPhone5S.com, the gold-colored iPhone 5S is still the color option that is the most difficult to acquire in the U.S. market. AT&T and T-Mobile currently have all capacities of the gold-colored iPhone 5S on backorder, while Verizon lists the 16GB gold iPhone 5S as “out of stock.”
The website also provides a country-by-country price comparison for the off-contract 16GB iPhone 5S. The U.S. currently has the lowest 16GB iPhone 5S price at $649, while Germany has the highest price at $948.
As noted by 9to5Mac, this is not the first web app to provide users with information of the availability of Apple’s iPhone 5S. App developer Mordy Tikotzky created the iPhone Check web app that provides users in the U.S. with iPhone 5S availability information based on their zip code.
Apple’s iPhone 5S was released on September 20 and sold out within the first 48 hours of availability. Apple later announced that it had sold a record-breaking nine million iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C models over the launch weekend. Here’s how Apple traded over the past five trading sessions.
