Earlier, it was reported that Apple might begin its personal pickup service for iPhone 5S starting today. It seems that the rumor appeared to be true, Apple resumed the personal pickup option for iPhone 5S from online Apple Store.
The Personal Pickup option allows users to reserve an iPhone 5S from the online store and pick it up at any Apple retail store. All you need to do is enter your postal code and select the device version you want to purchase (storage options, carrier) from the nearest retail store in your area. It will show you the personal pickup option in the “Summary” box in the sidebar.
However, most of the retail outlets are still out of stock for all iPhone 5S colors and there is no news when it will be replenished. Currently, the online Apple Store is showing a shipment date of October for iPhone 5S in all colors. Apple reportedly asked its supply chain partners to boost the production especially of the gold color iPhone 5S.
