Manx Telecom expects huge demand for the new Apple iPhone 5s and its new cheaper little brother, the Apple iPhone 5c. Announced by Apple on the 10th September, the new handsets sport impressive hardware specifications and will ship with the new iOS 7 which is amongst the largest upgrades the OS has ever been given.
The Apple iPhone 5s, described as ‘the most forward thinking iPhone in the world’ comes with a new 64-bit A7 chip which makes this device twice as fast as the iPhone 5, an all-New 8 Megapixel iSight Camera with True Tone Flash, plus introduces Touch ID Fingerprint Sensor plus many more new and enhanced features. It also comes in a range of new colours – Space Gray (Black+Gray back), Gold (White+Golden back), and Silver (White+Silver back). Pricing is expected to be the same as the iPhone 5, when it was initially released.
The new Apple iPhone 5c is the more affordable of the two iPhones. It combines the iPhone 5 internal specification with a hard-coated polycarbonate outer shell that comes in a number of bright colors – White, Blue, Green, Yellow and Pink, plus features a stunning 4-inch Retina display and an 8 megapixel iSight camera, the most popular camera in the world. iPhone 5c also includes a new FaceTime HD camera for even better FaceTime calls and self-portraits, and with iOS 7, you can make audio-only FaceTime calls for the first time.
Customers will be able to register expressions of interest to be first in the queue for Apple’s latest iconic smartphones from this morning 11th September
Mervyn Harvey, Manx Telecom’s Mobile Product Manager said:
“The new iPhone 5s and 5c look fantastic in the new colour options and we’re delighted that we can now start to take expressions of interest. We expect Apple will start shipping the new iPhones in the early part of October. For those customers who want to get their new iPhone first, we will start taking pre-orders once we have confirmed shipping dates by next week.”
