AT&T and T-Mobile reveal iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s pricing, AT&T iPhone 5c pre-order info also outed [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Following announcements from Sprint and Verizon regarding iPhone 5c pre-orders, AT&T today pinged us to share its own pre-order plans for Apple's colorful new handset. The big blue carrier says that it'll begin accepting reservations for the iPhone 5c at 12:01 a.m. Pacific/3:01 a.m. Eastern tomorrow, Sept. 13. AT&T also shared with us its pricing for both the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s:
- 16GB iPhone 5c: $99 with a two-year contract, $22 per month with AT&T Next
- 32GB iPhone 5c: $199 on contract, $27 per month on AT&T Next
- 16GB iPhone 5s: $199 on contract, $27 per month with AT&T Next
- 32GB iPhone 5s: $299 with a two-year commitment, $32 per month on AT&T Next
- 64GB iPhone 5s: $399 on contract, $37 per month with AT&T Next
- 8GB iPhone 4S: $0.99 with a two-year contract, $17 per month on AT&T Next
Meanwhile, T-Mobile has revealed its prices for both the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s on each device's landing page. The iPhone 5c will be offered for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $24 each, which works out to a total of $528. The iPhone 5s will be priced at $99 down with 24 monthly installments of $22.91 per month, which ends up being a total of $648.84.
It's worth noting that it appears as though there won't be any iPhone 5s pre-orders available this year. Apple and its carrier partners have offered pre-orders for new iPhone models in the past, including the iPhone 5 last year, but so far neither the Cupertino firm nor any of the operators have mentioned anything regarding a 5s pre-sale. That means that anyone that's got their eye on on the iPhone 5s and its Touch ID fingerprint scanner will need to go old school on Sept. 20 and pay a visit to their friendly neighborhood iPhone retailer.
UPDATE: Our pals at TmoNews have confirmed that just as with the other three major U.S. operators, T-Mobile will begin accepting pre-orders for the iPhone 5c at 12:01 a.m. Pacific/3:01 a.m. Eastern tomorrow.
