Tim Cook, CEO of Apple said: "Demand for iPhone 5 has been incredible and we are working hard to get an iPhone 5 into the hands of every customer who wants one as quickly as possible,"
"While we have sold out of our initial supply, stores continue to receive iPhone 5 shipments regularly and customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date. We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough iPhone 5s for everyone."
Apple said more than 100 million iOS devices, the iPad and iPod Touch as well as the iPhone, have been updated to the latest version, iOS 6. Apple calls it 'the world's most advanced mobile operating system'.
The iPhone 5 will launch in 22 more countries on 28 September including Spain, Finland, Ireland, Poland and New Zealand. Apple said it will be in more than 100 countries by the end of the year.
