U.S. Cellular to Offer iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on November 8
U.S. Cellular, will begin offering the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c on November 8, according to an email the company sent out on Friday afternoon. U.S. Cellular, the fifth largest carrier in the United States, first announced that it would begin carrying Apple products back in May, but did not give a timeline on when the products might appear.
Aside from a release date, U.S. Cellular has not given additional information on plan details, such as pricing, but the company’s current plans offer unlimited talk and text with 300MB to 75GB of data starting at $40 per month and it is likely that device prices will be competitive with other retailers.
While Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile offered the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c at launch, many smaller, regional carriers did not begin selling the device until October 1.
Supplies of Apple’s iPhone 5s remain constrained, with estimated shipping times from the Apple Store remaining at 2 to 3 weeks in the United States. iPhone 5c supplies remain plentiful, with all models and capacities shipping within 24 hours.
