Earlier today we received confirmation Rogers, TELUS and Bell will be offering the iPhone 5c for pre-order on September 13, while official sales will begin for iPhone 5s on September 20. Apple has revised its iPhone page to list 8 Canadian carriers as authorized retailers of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c (they were all existing retailers of the iPhone 5):
Six of these are owned by three companies (Rogers/Fido; TELUS/Koodo; Bell/Virgin Mobile), then one crown corporation (SaskTel) in Saskatchewan and MTS in Manitoba.
No word on two-year pricing has been revealed yet from our carriers. Apple advertised the iPhone 5c starting at $99 on a two-year term for the 16GB model. Outright and unlocked, the device starts at $599 in Canada, which is $100 less than last year’s iPhone 5, but higher than the expectations set by analysts who predicted a price range of $300-$350 outright.
