Very same is the story with other retail stores like UniverCell Telecom, PlanetM Retail, Future Group and Videocon Group’s Digiworld. Right after 3 weeks of its release, iPhone 5S is out of stock in nearly all stores, due to big demands and limited supply.

2 senior trade partners of Apple in India told TOI that the company has not been able to keep pace with iPhone 5S demand in India since the company is delivering more stock of its best-seller to western markets before shopping season.
