Would-be iPhone 4S buyers are likely to have trouble getting their hands on in the run-up to Christmas, as Apple continues to wrestle with stock shortages.

In a note to investors, analyst Ahok Kumar of Rodman & Renshaw warned that supply of Apple’s latest handset is likely to be constrained for the rest of the fourth quarter.

Kumar claims the stock drought is down to strong demand, prompted in part by US influential consumer body Consumer Report’s glowing review for the 4S, as well as insufficient supplies of an unnamed “key component”.

Shortages are thought to be most acute in the US, with waits up to three weeks facing some buyers on the likes of Verizon Wireless and AT&T.

However, with Apple likely to prioritise this market for the festive season, it’s likely that demand will begin outstripping supply in Europe soon.
