Apple on October 9, 2013 announced the launch schedule of iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in over 50 countries by November 1, 2013.
iPhone 5s and 5c will be available from November 1, 2013 in India, Albania, Armenia, Bahrain, Colombia, El Salvador, Guam, Guatemala, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and UAE.
A week before that, on October 25, 2013 iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will be released in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, French West Indies, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Reunion Island, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and Thailand.
This is a great news for people in India, as the phone will be available in the holiday season of Diwali (we hope Apple can meet the demand of iPhone 5s with enough supply). The demand for iPhone 5s has been more than that of iPhone 5c, and so there has been some supply constraints for iPhone 5s. We hope Apple has resolved the problem and enough iPhone 5s (gold) will be available once it goes on sale in above countries on October 25, 2013 and November 1,2013.
Both iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are currently available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK.
