Reservations for unlocked iPhone 5s sell out within hours in China

Customers in China looking to reserve an unlocked version of the iPhone 5s Tuesday may be out of luck. Initial supplies of the iPhone 5s are widely suspected to be limited, with multiple stores have sold out of all models of the iPhone 5s, though some are still offering the "Space Gray" 16GB version. Select versions of the iPhone 5c also appear to be in limited supply as of Tuesday.

According to Chinese language publication Sina Tech, the gold iPhone 5s appears to be one the most popular models in the country's capital city, with first day stock running out at the Sanlitun, Xidan Joy City, and Wangfujing Apple Stores just two hours after reservations went live on Tuesday, local Beijing time.
