Two weeks after the release of the iPhone 5 in various countries, there are still complaints about the big waiting list that some are facing, in order to get the hyped iPhone 5. As it seems, the demand was more than what the production expected, which created several problems, especially with the online orders. The shipping estimate might reach three to four weeks for the new orders, while some Apple stores are not able to meet the demands of the customers.
Although this might worry the Apple fans that haven't purchased iPhone 5 yet, but we can reassure them that the problem will be resolved soon. Apple knows very well that they need to have a great supply of iPhones for the holiday season, which makes them produce even more handsets now, in order to be prepared. iPhone 5 is expected to be the most profitable iPhone of all time and Apple wouldn't allow limited availability for a longer period.
Moreover, there were stories around the web that Foxconn factory in China went on strike, with complaints about the working conditions in the production of the iPhone 5. It was reported that the workers were on strike, due to the excessive demands on the quality control of the iPhone 5 and the endless working hours, even on national holidays. Foxconn sent a statement to Reuters, mentioning that there was not a strike in any factory and that "there has been no workplace stoppage in that facility or any other Foxconn facility and production has continued on schedule." As for the allegations about working on a national holiday, Foxconn added that the workers that chose to do so, were paid three times their wage. And just like that, another false alarm for Apple that could possibly affect the sales of the iPhone 5 goes off.
As for the limited supply, as we said, the issue is expected to be resolved soon, if Apple really wants to boast about the most profitable iPhone of all time.
