If you’re still having trouble finding the iPhone 5s you want, Apple made your life a little easier. Last week, Apple introduced the option to purchase an iPhone 5s online with in-store pickup. Since the initial run of iPhone 5s models sold out online, Apple’s website has listed shipping dates for all iPhone 5s models for some point later this month. But if you checked Apple’s site when the company launched the in-store pickup feature, you could find which locations in your area had the model you wanted. There’s also a new, unofficial site called iPhone-Check that makes it simple to search multiple stores at once. Plug in your zip code and pick which color and carrier you want. The site will then show you what phones are available at Apple stores near you. Now that we’re a few weeks away from launch, supply should start catching up with demand. But if you’re still missing out on that iPhone you’ve just got to have, these sites should make your life a little bit easier.
