Tutte le indiscrezioni parlavano di un iPhone economico, forse ingannate dalla scocca in plastica e dalla necessità di arginare la crescita di Samsung ed Android, invece Apple va avanti per la sua strada, abbassando come di consueto il prezzo del modello precedente di 100€, questa volta però rinnovato sotto le vesti di iPhone 5C.
iPhone 5C 16GB 629€ – 32GB 729€
L’iPhone 5S mantiene i livelli di prezzo del precedente modello, quindi:
iPhone 5S 167GB 729€ – 32GB 839€ – 64GB 949€
I livelli di prezzo restano quindi alti, e per chi desidera un iPhone più economico non restano che le offerte di chi ha scorte di iPhone 5 e precedenti da smaltire, come PrezzoFelice, che propone l’iPhone 5 a 579€, o come i sottocosto di qualche catena della grande distribuzione, che dimostrano la presenza di stock di iPhone 4 e 4S ancora sul mercato.
Ecco il comunicato stampa (in inglese):
