iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on sale from Apple Australia

The great iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c launch has officially begun. Australia has gone live already with online sales from the Apple Store and both models and all varieties are on sale to the public. That's the good news. The bad news is the shipping time; currently estimated at 7-10 business days.

The iPhone 5s begins at A$ 869.00 for the 16GB version, and all three colors are currently showing the same availability. For iPhone 5c customers, things are a little better, with shipping times of 1-3 business days on all colors and sizes. iPhone 5c pricing for Australian customers starts at A$ 739.00 for the 16GB version.

The official cases are also available to purchase, with a 1-2 week wait on the iPhone 5c colorful cases full of holes, and 1-3 days on the iPhone 5/5s leather cases. So, you can get a 5c without a case or a 5s case without a phone right now it seems!

Are you over in Australia, and have you already ordered your 5s or 5c? Which did you go for and why?

iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on sale from Apple Australia


Ordered 2 Gold 64gb 5s' and 1 Grey 64gb 5s.
We upgrade our iPhones every year, but the TouchID feature and improved camera were the clinchers for buying the 5s. I think the 5c colours are great, however we like the slick look and feel of the metal finish.

Disappointed with the delivery dates, but from information received from the line here in Western Australia, all those past the first five in line are being told: if you want gold order online and go home. So decided to sleep rather than line up!!

At the Penrith Apple store (Sydney, Australia) the Apple Manager has told those in line that there is no gold whatsoever. Carriers appear to have only limited supplies of grey.
