With stores on the West Coast not yet open, Apple has already pushed out availability on its website for the gold iPhone 5s until sometime in October, for all capacities and carriers.

The silver and gray models of the iPhone 5s are currently listed as having a seven-to-10-day wait time. Carrier sources said earlier this week that they expected very limited stocks of the iPhone 5s.

Meanwhile, those wanting an iPhone 5c can currently order one and get it in one to three business days, for all colors and carriers.

Both the iPhone 5s and 5c went on sale Friday. Apple offered preorders for the 5c, but not the 5s.
