It has been widely speculated that the iPhone 5s supply is severely constrained, which was the reason it was not available for pre-order. The extended shipping dates seems to indicate that it is indeed the case.
iPhone 5s will available in the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, and the UK at 12:01 am local time on Apple’s Online Store.
You can also go to Apple retail stores, their carrier’s retail stores or Apple Authorized Resellers at 8:00 am local time to get iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c at launch. However, based on the availability on Apple’s Online Store, it looks like you will have to go in very early to get one.
