During the Apple event on Tuesday it was announced that the iPhone 5C was going to be available for pre-order from September 13 12.01 PT, and that time is almost upon us. So it comes as no surprise to us that the Apple store has now gone down, but what about the iPhone 5S?
iPhone 5S pre-order confusion today — With the store now down and the fact people will soon be able to get their iPhone 5C pre-ordered, we still have to wonder about the iPhone 5S. The reason for this is because there was no mention of this particular handset on Tuesday.
Normally Apple announce when the new phone will be up for pre-order, but all they gave us was when the iPhone 5S was going to be released, so no pre-order, just the day when you can order or go in the store and pick one up.
With the Apple store now down there is hope Apple could offer a little surprise and allow people to pre-order the iPhone 5S today, but is that wishful thinking? With this indecisiveness we are pretty sure people in the US will be staying up later and waiting to see what happens, because they will be clinging on to the hope of being able to get their in in for the iPhone 5S today.
Having already giving you details of the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S price for the UK and the US, we will now get to see if people are impressed with this so-called cheaper iPhone? Okay, so we know that it is cheaper than the 5S, but it is not as cheap as we would have hoped, and not the price it needs to be to succeed in emerging markets.
Update: Well it is official, the iPhone 5C is now available to pre-order, but those wanting the iPhone 5S have been given the cold shoulder because you cannot order this new handset until 20 September onwards.
