The unlocked yellow 16GB iPhone 5c model was the first to run out of launch-day stock through Apple’s U.S. online stores, and several other colors of the unlocked models of the device are now facing the similar shortages. Those looking to enroll in a contract on launch day should be safe. Supplies of carrier-exclusive models do remain available for pre-order. Those not looking for subsidized handsets should act quickly to avoid disappointment on the launch day of this Friday, September 20.

Reminding that the iPhone 5c is essentially the last years iPhone 5 in more colorful design, which has a larger battery and better front-camera. The uptake on pre-orders has still been somewhat impressive. Compared with most iPhone launches, and the iPhone 5c has struggled, but nearly sold out unlocked models in most colors already must be seen as a possitive.
