Questions like this remind me of this clip from Futurama

There is no pre-order system for the 5s. It's only for the 5c.

Oh right. Ok. Thanks for that. Thought it was just apple not taking preorders and not the networks.

So far Apple have only confirmed the date and not the times. The American networks have said they will accept pre orders from 12am which points to 9am UK time.

Thats pretty much all we know for now.

8 hour time difference.


Last year (and prior to that) preorders started at 8am UK time (midnight PST).

It's likely it will be the same.

Pre orders have opened for iPhone 5C on the Apple store and on the UK network websites. I wouldn't rush though especially if ordering on a contract. The contract prices are absolutely crazy and have me quite concerned over what the networks will be asking for a 5S when they finally get around to releasing the information which should have been available the second Tim stopped talking!

EE prices for the 5s are available on the site now. Eye watering.

Quite.

The iPhone 5c seems to be more expensive than the iPhone 5 was last year!

Threes prices for the 5C are up, I thinks my daughters best get down to the Three store to get a 5 before they're gone.

It's just over 200 cheaper over the two years to buy the 5c outright and get a 15 One Plan SIM-only than it is to get the phone subsidised. Not even a contest as far as I'm concerned, not that I'll be buying that awful monstrosity mind - still unsure as to who thought the 5c ws a good idea...

Is your daughter made of money? Those prices are a rip off.

Anyone waiting for the 5s and wants to order online, looks like Apple have changed the start time from previous years.

From 12:01am on the 20th according to their email.

I'm not sure what to do about this. I don't want to end up waiting four weeks like I did for my iPhone 5. But, they've changed the colour of the black one and I want to see what it actually looks like before I order.
