According to poll of 20 U.S. Apple Stores conducted by Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, iPhone 5 supply seems to have been stabilized.

“We believe the iPhone 5 has finally reached a point where consumers can walk into an Apple Store and walk out with a phone,” Munster said in a note to investors on Thursday.

The analyst found that the iPhone 5 on Verizon, which was said to be in the shortest supply, is now readily available.

”The bottom line is that AT&T, Sprint and Verizon are consistently showing 90%+ availability,” Munster noted.

The analyst expects Apple to sell 45 million iPhones in the fourth quarter.
