As expected in earlier reports, Apple has introduced an 8GB version of the iPhone 5c. Apple is looking to boost the 5c by launching an cheaper 8GB version and to make it a more attractive purchase. Apple has added the 8 GB iPhone 5c to its European online stores. In the UK, the device is priced at £429 ($714) unlocked — £40 less than the current 16GB model.
Carriers across Europe have now begun taking orders for it. UK operator O2 and French provider SFR are offering the 8GB iPhone 5c with a variety of tariffs and prices.
The iPhone 5c is just the iPhone 5 in a brand new plastic casing. When it was launched, the iPhone 5c came in the usual 16/32/64GB variants in different color options. And now Apple has introduced the 8GB iPhone 5c to help support the phone’s lagging sales. The newer version includes Apple’s custom dual-core A6 processor, an 8 MP iSight camera, and FaceTime HD camera.
There is no word from Apple about the detailed availability of the 8GB iPhone 5c variant worldwide. Currently the Apple iPhone 5c 8GB variant will be available only in U.K., France, Germany, Australia and China. It seems the 8GB variant is limited to some specific countries, we have to wait for any official announcement from Apple about availability of 8GB iPhone 5c globally. Stay tuned for more updates.
