UK iPhone 5 prices start at 529

Apple unlocks costs of new handset.

The cheapest UK price for an unlocked iPhone 5 will be 529, Apple has announced.

That cost relates to the basic 16GB model. Larger sizes will naturally cost more.

iPhone 5's 32GB model will set you back 599, while the 64GB model is a whopping 699.

UK phone networks O2, Vodafone and Three will all offer the phone without a monthly contract.

Apple revealed the iPhone 5 during a conference last night. The new model includes a larger 4-inch Retina display, longer battery life and Apple's A6 chip, capable of running "console-quality games".

Online pre-orders will begin from tomorrow - 14th September - or you'll be able to pick one up in person from 8am on 21st September. Bring your credit card!
