iPhone 5 Stock and Availability
The new iPhone 5 is here, available to buy on UK Networks
The long awaited new iPhone, the iPhone 5 has finally been announced by Apple this September, and is now available to buy on all UK Networks, and Sim Free from various stores, including the Apple Store.
The new iPhone is a fresh redesign on previous generations, and features a larger 4" screen as well as LTE (4G) connectivity, which will allow you to get much faster network coverage on your iPhone. UK Networks Orange and T-Mobile, part of the Everything Everywhere group have announced 4G plans in the UK, which should be launched shortly, whilst other networks have yet to announce 4G coverage plans. To take full advantage of 4G speeds then sign up to an Orange or T-Mobile price plan, and you can switch later to a 4G price plan.
See the new iPhone, and hear about it's new features and design from the people who made it, in the Official Apple iPhone 5 Trailer below.
iPhone 5 Stock
All Major UK networks are now selling the iPhone 5, however stock is very limited as demand is high. We do our best to bring you the latest stock information for iPhone 5 on Vodafone, O2, Three, EE (including Orange and T-Mobile) and bring you up to the minute stock information and availability for networks online stores and how to find stock in your local stores. With over 2 million pre-orders taken in the first weekend, the iPhone 5 is proving the be the most popular iPhone yet, so expect demand to continue, and stock to be low in online and offline retail stores well in to October.
iPhone 5 Price and Deals
With the release date of the iPhone 5 not even confirmed yet, there is no indication of costs, and deals on UK networks. It is likely that most UK mobile networks will have a similar pricing structure and tariffs available for the iPhone 5, and drop the price of the iPhone 4 to 3GS levels as they are currently.
It is also unknown how well stocked UK networks will be, both online and in store. With previous iPhone release in the UK there have been large stock shortages for weeks and months after the release. O2 have their own stock checkers and usually provide daily reports of in store stock, and other networks such as T-Mobile, Three, Orange and Vodafone have similar systems in place. However no networks have yet indicated their iPhone 5 stocks, prices, or tariffs and it's unlikely they will until after the October launch. We believe Tesco Mobile will offer the iPhone 5 on contract, however think it will be at a later date (we predict November-December). Tesco mobile have popular options as they are one of the only UK networks to offer 12 month contracts for iPhone 5.
