iPhone 5 is More Expensive Than the iPhone 4S, Here are the Starting Prices

On September 13, 2012

Last night Apple announced that the iPhone 5 will be available for preorder on September 14 in USA, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Canada. Apple websites in those countries have already posted prices for the new terminal, and below we have listed them all to get an idea about the location where you will find the best price if you want to buy one or more phones. In Europe, Switzerland is usually the lowest price for the iPhone 5, but this country is part of the second wave of releases.

That said, here are the prices:

United Kingdom – iPhone 5 16GB – £529 compared to £479 last year;

France – iPhone 5 16GB – €679 from €629 last year;

Germany – iPhone 5 16GB – €679 from €629 last year;

Basically the terminal is £50 more expensive in the UK, and in European countries the difference is exactly the same, but in Euro. If there prices are higher, then in Europe, people can expect the difference to be similar or maybe even higher than €50. Unfortunately iPhone 5 will be available to operators in most of the Europe until the mid or late October, and until then online stores will have higher prices speculating on market demand. At the end I will leave you to see the list of countries that will be part of the second wave of releases: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Switzerland, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway , Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Hungary.
