There is high demand for the Apple iPhone 5 yet supply is very low. We mentioned that the Foxconn riot might cause iPhone 5 delay back in September. Looks like it’s happening now that shipping time indicated in Apple.com is at 3 to 4 weeks.
The iPhone is said to be the most difficult device that Foxconn assembled according to a Foxconn executive. This is believed to be slowing down the production but is improving everyday.
