Apple(s aapl) introduced the option to purchase an iPhone 5s with in-store pickup through its online store last Monday, only to pull the function a day later. It appears to be working again now, though in-store pickup availability is still extremely limited.
Apple lists online shipping dates for all iPhone 5s models for some point in October. A quick search around New York City showed a 16GB space gray Verizon(s vz)(s vod) model of the phone available from Apple’s flagship Fifth Avenue store. But gold iPhones are still nowhere to be found, at least within the tri-state area.
Still, this could be a sign that Apple’s iPhone 5s supply is beginning to catch up to demand. But if you still can’t find the model of the phone you want directly from Apple, here’s a list of other places you can try in the meantime.
