In all of the fuss over the dazzling success of the iPhone 5s, there's been a persistent rumor circulating around that Apple's iPhone 5c has been a comparative failure owing to its near ubiquitous availability. But according to sales figures from Canaccord from September that surfaced in Fortune today, that apparently isn't the case. Indeed, based on their findings, the iPhone 5c is even holding its own against Apple competitors like Samsung and Google.
It looks like all those folks who've been camping out for the iPhone 5s might have the right idea, after all. Based on reports from numerous sources, the iPhone 5s appears to be suffering from limited inventory ahead of its launch. It's certainly believable, as even this morning reports were coming in that iPhone 5s preorders in China had depleted the available stock not long after they became available.
With the unveiling of the iPhone 5s and 5c, our real deals today are focused on cases that will work with the flagship product that Cupertino loves so much. Some of these are for your 5s (get a new phone, get a new case is our motto) while there are actually some 5c cases already ready on the market. So have these babies at the ready when your new handset gets to your hot little hands. And finally get yourself some orange for your iPhone 5c. It's the missing color!

Like music? Then you should head over to iTunes right after reading this. In a rare move for Apple, dozens upon dozens of hit songs from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and today are available for just $.69 a song. Normally this is the kind of thing you only find on Amazon, so you should take advantage of it while you can if you like to download all your music through iTunes.
In honor of next week's big iPhone 5S reveal (which leaks have pretty much guaranteed with be fairly anticlimactic unless Tim's got another Mac Pro style surprise under wraps), this week's deals are all about the iOS. We've got iPod touches, iPads, and more inside. We'll keep it short this week, as we know if you're reading this blog, you're holding your breath and your wallet as you wait to see what next Tuesday will bring.
BlackBerry fans hoping the company's latest keyboard-based smartphone might steer the company clear of a looming iceberg may be disappointed to discover that sales of the device haven't quite worked out the way the company hoped.
This week's apps fall into three big broad categories. We've got camera and image manipulation apps, we've got games, and then we've got some apps to help you get things accomplished.

PC sales are falling everywhere, and that extends to to Macs as well according to the news from Apple's quarterly earnings report earlier today. But as with our earlier news with the iPad's shocking dominance in Internet traffic, there's a silver lining to the news about Macs. Citing the appeal of the new MacBook Air's longer battery life, Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer announced that the thin laptop had witnessed its strongest launch to date, according to AppleInsider.
