The pre-order’s timing goes in line with Apple’s previous launches. Although they are yet to announce their own pre-order date, it is likely that the Online Apple Store will start taking advance purchase together with the carriers.
As announced at the company’s special media event last Tuesday, the iPhone 5C 16 GB model will be available with a two-year contract for $99. Its 32 GB variant, on the other hand, carries a price tag of $199.
The low-cost handset is set to hit shelves on the 20th, together with the iPhone 5S.
