Could An Even Cheaper iPhone Be Coming Soon? It’s Already Here.
If you thought the previous iPhone 5C for $99 with a contract was a good deal, brace yourselves an even better iPhone deal has surfaced making a cheaper iPhone affordable for everyone!
Apple released an 8GB iPhone 5C Tuesday, and it’s selling for roughly $712 on the company’s U.K. Apple stores. That’s around $66.40 less than the 16GB iPhone 5C. The phone is not currently available in the U.S., but is available in countries including Germany, Australia and China. Here’s a little peek:
$712 for an iPhone (or £429 in British pounds) might sound expensive, but here’s the thing: The phone comes without a contract, so you can use it with any carrier.
A 16GB iPhone 5C currently sells for $99 with a contract in the U.S. and $549 without one, so it would make sense that an iPhone with 8GB less of storage would be even cheaper than that. The iPhone 5C is Apple’s cheapest phone yet, but it hasn’t paid off for the tech giant. Apple told its manufacturers that it would cut orders of the iPhone 5C last October, a move that suggests the phone hasn’t been flying off the shelves.
Will the new cheaper iPhone 5C make it to the US? Do you think that more people will begin buying the 8GB 5C because of the non-contractual factor? Would you shell out $712 for an iPhone without a contract obligation – weight the pros and cons in the comments below…
