iPhone 5S & iPhone 5C UK Release Date
On 10 September 2013 the Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be announced by Apple, shortly followed by their UK release date. If you want to be the first to know when these new iPhones are due to arrive on Three, just register for updates and we'll let you know about iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C deals on Three as soon as we know!
iPhone 5S & iPhone 5C Price on Three
As Apple haven't yet announced pricing, we're unable to let you know what this might be! The iPhone 5C is rumoured to be the more budget end of the two, so we'd expect contracts in the range of £26/month or so. The iPhone 5S, as the latest flagship iPhone, is a premium device likely to be available on contracts at around £35/m or so. As always, Three bring you the most competitive deals on the market. And remember, with 4G for the price of 3G set to be available by the end of the year, you can really make use of our All You Can Eat Data deals with your new iPhone on 3!

Previous 3 iPhone 5S Rumours
Now that the iPhone 5 is no longer the new kid on the block, rumours are already beginning to circulate about its possible successor. Will it be called the iPhone 5S or the iPhone 6? Who knows, but for now, why not check out what we know about the iPhone 5S on Three?
3 iPhone 5S Design
If Apple does indeed bring out a 5S, don't expect it to be a hugely radical departure from the current model. No previous "S" version has differed significantly in design style, instead preferring to focus on software updates and minor changes to performance.
Having already changed things up plenty with the iPhone 5 by adding a taller screen, a new dock and a thinner profile, we reckon the hardware changes will be mininmal. Any advances will probably be to make the aluminium unibody case more scratch resistant.
Three iPhone 5S Specs
There is one addition that we are hoping for here at Store 3. Currently the iPhone is only compatible with a narrow band of the 4G spectrum and not the section that will be sold off in the auction in early 2013. Three are investing heavily in the ultrafast high speed data technology and we would love to bring you a 4G iPhone 5S on Three's network. As it stands though, you won't be left behind with the fastest HSDPA+ connectivity in the UK.
We might also see the emergence of a newer, faster processor or at the very least a slightly overclocked version of the current one.
iOS On iPhone 5S On Three
An area that is almost certainly guaranteed to see some evolution is the iOS interface. Currently at version iOS 6 for the sixth generation iPhone, iOS 7 might bring some major changes to the interface. iPhone 4S brought Siri to the table so it will be interesting to see what else they can come up with for the next version.
