The new iPhone 5’s UK release date will be on the 21st of September, next Friday. It will be available for pre-order on the 14th of September.
Apple has recently unveiled their new iPhone in San Francisco. The hotly-anticipated smartphone sports a 4-inch display with an aspect ratio of 16:9, the new A6 chip, a slimmer profile, and a lightweight design.
If you’re dying to get your hands on the new iPhone and don’t mind waiting in line, you can visit any Apple store and wait for hours for your turn to get the handset on the 21st of September a Friday. Some Apple enthusiasts are known for camping outside the stores days before the official release date. However, if you don’t want to wait in line, you can simply pre-order the handset on the 14th of September via Apple’s official website. Expect the iPhone 5 to be delivered to your doorstep on the 21st.
Unfortunately, Apple is yet to announce UK pricing. However, the iPhone 5 will have the same price tag as the iPhone 4S on US contracts. This suggests that the new iPhone will be priced just as much as its predecessor. This means that it may set you back £500 for the 16GB version. If you’re looking to get your hands on the 32GB or 64GB versions, expect to pay more.
An LTE version of the iPhone 5 will be joining other 4G devices to be exclusively offered by EE, formerly known as Everything Everywhere (Orange and T-Mobile). It can connect to EE’s 4GEE network, which means it offers lightning-fast internet.
