iPhone 4S inventory finally catches up with demand

After months of delayed shipments, the iPhone 4S is back in stock at Apple’s online store. According to Apple’s website,  all models and colors are now listed as being available. This is a jump from a few weeks ago when shipment times for the 4S were shortened to 3-5 days.

The iPhone 4S had a banner launch when it went on sale last October. The handset sold millions in its first weekend and its sales show no signs of slowing down. The Cupertino company announced its quarterly earnings last week and confirmed it sold 37 million iPhone handsets in the quarter, up 128 percent year over year. The handset breakdown was not disclosed by Apple, but many believe it was the 4S that drove sales. Even though the 4S was only a moderate jump from the iPhone 4,  the handset’s Siri voice assistant and 8-megapixel camera proved to be a hit with consumers.
