O2 has announced the iPhone 5S and 5C will be available on its refresh tariffs from 20 September.
The operator has revealed that under the terms of its ‘future-proof’ refresh tariffs customers will be able to upgrade to subsequent iPhones without having to pay off their airtime. The iPhone 5S will be priced from £119.99 on a 24 month Refresh contract, while the 5C can be purchased from £29.99 over the same period of time. Both devices are 4G ready and can be pre-ordered on 13 September.
O2 launched its Refresh tariffs in April to separate phone and tariff charges. Customers who want to upgrade can do so at any point and only pay off their handset. The vendor will also offer customers the chance to trade in their existing handset, with the opportunity to take up to £280 off the price of their new phone or pay off their old handset depending on the condition or model.
O2 CEO, Ronana Dunne, said: ‘As the network that first brought iPhone to the UK, we’re proud to continue to innovate with our iPhone offering. Customers who purchase their iPhone from us get complete peace of mind that they can always be at the leading edge of technology.’
