Sales of Apple's latest iPhones have kicked off, and some versions of the device are beginning to quickly sell out.
Apple is releasing the iPhone 5s -- the successor to last year's iPhone 5 -- as well as the iPhone 5c, a low-cost version of the popular smartphone.
The devices are going on sale around the globe, and the golden iPhone 5s is proving to be popular and in short supply as it has begun selling out in various locations.
Times' staff writers Chris O'Brien and Andrea Chang are reporting from the openings of stores in San Francisco as well as Los Angeles.
