Reader Macmaniman tells us that Apple was giving away these reservation cards for iPhone 5s in Sweden, and there were no limits for the customer. Kyle also reported that customers were able to buy 4-5 iPhones in New Zealand. So looks like iPhone 5s was more easily available at launch. Thanks folks for the tip!


If you’re living in any of the countries mentioned above, please do let us know if you had to wait in long lines to get your hands on the shiny new iPhone.
