UK mobile carrier O2 has announced their first iPhone 5S tariff for the handset in the UK. I just spoke to O2, who are my current provider, and they gave me details of the first iPhone 5S plan that they announced this morning.
O2 have announced a 24 month plan that will set you back £37 per month, for this you get 1GB of data and unlimited calls and texts, they will offer the 16GB iPhone 5S on this plan for an up front payment of £119.
O2 also told me that the iPhone 5S will be available on the their O2 refresh plans and other plans, they have said that they expect to announce more plans by9 the end of this week and early next week.
I asked O2 about pre-orders of the iPhone 5S, the O2 rep I spoke to said that they only new iPhone they are allowed to take pre-orders on is the iPhone 5C.
O2 will not be able to sell the iPhone 5S online or in their stores until Friday the 20th of September, so if you want one, you will have to go to an O2 store or one of the other carrier stores, or an Apple store on the 20th of September.
Apple are only taking pre-orders of the iPhone 5C and not the iPhone 5S, which does seem a little strange. We wonder why Apple decided not to offer pre-orders on both devices.
Maybe Apple are looking to sell more iPhone 5C handsets at launch, and are hoping that people will pre-order this handset on the 13th rather than waiting until the 20th to order the iPhone 5S.Filed Under: Apple, Apple iPhone, Technology News, Top News
