Yes, the rumors are true and Apple released an 8GB iPhone 5c. Carriers across Europe have now begun taking orders for it. UK operator O2 and French provider SFR are offering the handset for free and one euro respectively on multi-year contracts, discounting it by more than £50 ($83) to tempt new customers.
Apple has also added the new model to many of its online stores worldwide, pricing unlocked models at £429 ($714), which means you’ll need to pay an extra £40 ($67) to double your storage. While the 8GB variant is available in China, it remains conspicuous in its absence from the company’s US store. Apple has remained quiet regarding sales of its multi-colored iPhone, but today’s price drop could certainly indicate sales didn’t meet expectations.
