In cursul acestei dupa-amiezi compania Apple a publicat un comunicat de presa prin care readuce in atentia lumii faptul ca iPhone 5S si iPhone 5C urmeaza sa fie lansate pe data de 20 septembrie in magazinele sale din 10 tari de pe glob. Australia, Canada, China, Franta, Germania, Hong Kong, Japonia, Marea Britanie, Singapore si SUA sunt tarile in cauza, iar pe data de 20 septembrie la 8 dimineata magazinele Apple, si cele ale operatorilor/retailerilor, se vor deschide si vor incepe sa comercializeze cele doua dispozitive.
Desi iPhone 5C este disponibil pentru precomanda in toate aceste tari inca de vineri, iPhone 5S a fost oferit pentru precomanda doar in China, asa ca in restul tarilor vor fi cel mai probabil cozi lungi in fata magazinelor Apple. Avand in vedere ca se speculeaza ca Apple ar avea stocuri reduse de terminale iPhone 5S, ar fi bine sa vizitati dis-de-dimineata un magazin Apple pentru a fi siguri ca faceti o achizitie.
Pentru ca am tot fost intrebat daca terminalele iPhone 5S vor fi comercializate la pret intreg si decodate in SUA incepand din luna decembrie, va spun ca acest lucru nu este adevarat. Apple le va comercializa chiar din ziua lansarii, chiar daca nu va promova acest lucru pe undeva, iar oricine le va putea achizitiona din magazinele sale. Din pacate nu veti putea utiliza aceste terminale pe retelele 4G LTE din Romania, insa retelele GSM vor fi accesibile.
