Apple iPhone 5 the most long waited mobile phone among the gadget lovers is soon going to be released as Apple sent an event invitation “Let’s Talk iPhone” for the 4th October 2011 inviting the press and all other interested readers and parties to explore the new features of the Apple iPhone 5 and fix a release date. For the first time the CEO of Apple “Tim Cook” will appear in the event addressing the new look and the advanced and killer voice recognition feature in the Apple iPhone 5.
When the Apple iPhone 4 was announced on the 7th June 2010 at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference but was released on the 24th June, Apple is breaking the tradition this year (2011) with the exception by bring its long waited Apple iPhone 5 in October instead of June or July. After the event Apple will probably announce the exact release date of the iPhone 5 but we can probably expect the new Apple iPhone 5 to hit the markets of USA in about two weeks or soon after the event date (4th October 2011).
For Apple iPhone 5 to hit the markets of UK, we are probably looking by the end of October 2011 or the early September 2011. Almost all the major networks such as 3 Mobile, O2, T-Mobile/Orange and Vodafone along with Phones4U and Carphone Warehouse will be actively looking to get the Apple iPhone 5 into their stores as soon as Apple completes their initial launches in USA and come up with tariffs and sales agreements with the top mentioned networks of UK.
Since Apple iPhone 5 works with the 3G/4G technology, 3 Mobile network would be the most preferable network since it’s the biggest 3G network offering All-you-can-eat internet data to it’s customers, then Apple would most likely do their initial UK sales agreement with 3 Mobile Network so that people will enjoy the advanced features of the Apple iPhone 5. To find out the correct information we have to wait to hit the online and store of these networks.
What would be the price plan of Apple iPhone 5?
What we also believe that if the Apple iPhone 5 do release in October or September the price plan/tariff will be in its highest peak and make sure you do your budget calculations before you jump into a 24 months contract. We assume that the price plan could go up to £70 a month or even higher if the phone is to be FREE. So lets wait and see what happens and how the packages are designed.
Is Apple iPhone 5 more reliable than Apple iPhone 4?
Apple iPhone 4 is currently the most stable Apple phone in the UK market by becoming the most wanted and most salable handset of the year. 3 Mobile network is offering the Apple iPhone 4 on The One Plan for £35 a month with All-you-can-eat data (truly unlimited internet) making it the best package for Apple iPhone 4 16GB Black/White. The One Plan gives you 2000 any time any network minutes + 5000 UK texts + 5000 3 to 3 calls + All-you-can-eat data on a 24 months contract.
So, if you are waiting for the Apple iPhone 5 and also thinking about the iPhone 4, we would recommend first think of the budget and see if you do really need the features of Apple iPhone 5 for additional cost or rather you could fulfil your needs with the iPhone 4 that is currently available in the UK market.
