The Apple Store website here in the UK has opened up to iPhone 5 pre-orders and now we know the full pricing range for all of the new Apple smartphone models.
So… Drum roll please… the new iPhone 5, if you want it SIM-free unlocked and straight from Apple in either black of white, will set you back £529 for the 16GB version, £599 for the 32GB, £699 for 64GB.
US SIM-free prices have also been revealed and sit at $649, $749 and $849 respectively. However, you can only pre-order contracted handsets on AT&T, Verizon or Sprint for the time being.
As you’d expect, stock is predicted to shift really quickly, so if you’ve got a spare grand lying around get in early to avoid disappointment. Either that or be prepared to queue up outside an Apple store on September 21st, when the handset will be officially released.
Our sister site Tech Digest is waiting on UK network prices. They’re beginning to trickle in, and we expect to hear from EE (formerly Everything Everywhere) O2, Vodafone, T-Mobile, Orange and Three before long. We’ll keep you posted.[Via Tech Digest]
