Update:15th June 2010
Apple has now announced the official iPhone UK pricing, iPhone 4 UK SIM Free Prices, 16GB £499, 32GB £599.
Details on the iPhone 4 pricing on Vodafone are out, Vodafone Announces iPhone 4 UK Prices, 16GB £189, 32GB £280
We already know how much the new iPhone 4 will cost in the US, $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model, but this price doesn’t include taxes which are different for each state in the US.
We have contacted all of the three mobile phone networks in the UK who will be selling the iPhone 4 in the UK, but none of them would give us any pricing details, so we decided to work out for ourselves how much the iPhone is likely to retail for in the UK.
The 16GB iPhone 4 retails for $199 in the US, if we use todays exchange rate this works out at about £138, but this price doesn’t include taxes, so if you add on the VAT to that you are looking at around £162, so we suspect that the 16GB iPhone 4 will retail for around £169 on a contract with either O2, Orange or Vodafone.
The 32GB iPhone 4 retails for $299 in the US, again using todays exchange rate that works out at about £207 if you add the VAT onto that it works out at £243, so we think that the 32GB iPhone 4 will retail for £249.
The above prices are just estimates, and they are based on the US pricing of the iPhone 4 and take into account todays exchange rate, plus it also includes VAT taxes.
The prices could be more or less when each of the three operators announce them depending on subsidies etc, but we suspect the prices will be very similar to these.
Make sure you check out our Apple iPhone 4 UK Buyers Guide. O2 has now released details of their tariffs for the iPhone 4 in the UK, still no confirmation on the exact price, O2 Announces iPhone 4 UK Price Plans.
They have also removed the unlimited data from the iPhone 4 and all smartphones on their network O2 UK Removes Unlimited Data From iPhone 4 And Smartphones.
