Carriers reportedly won’t have any white or gold iPhone 5s models on launch day

iPhone 5s Release Date Supplies

Getting an iPhone 5s on launch day was always going to be tough but now it looks like getting a 5s in a color other than gray on Friday will be all but impossible. Unnamed carrier sources tell 9to5Mac that they won’t have any white/silver or white/gold iPhone 5s models during the device’s launch day and that they will only have the new device available in space gray. 9to5Mac’s sources say that they might receive late shipments of silver and gold 5s models Thursday night but that they aren’t counting on it and are preparing to sell the 5s in only one color. That said, it’s entirely possible that there will be silver and gold models available on carrier websites, so it looks like there will be a lot of people waking up at 3:00 a.m. EDT tomorrow morning. Let’s hope that the Apple fans who began lining up a week early to get their favorite device can settle for space gray because otherwise they may start to feel a little foolish.
