Apple Releases 8GB iPhone 5c, Brings Back iPad 4


 

UPDATE: Apple has released the 8GB version of its iPhone 5c in various European regions, including the UK and France, on its official site for £429 ($712). It has also brought back the fourth-generation iPad with Retina display, which comes with a 16GB capacity. Apple had earlier stopped sales of the iPad 4 after it introduced its iPad Air. However, it seems to have replaced the iPad 2, which has now been discontinued. The WiFi-only version of the iPad 4 costs £329, while the mobile data-equipped one costs £429.

Rumors had been circulating that Apple would release an 8GB version of its lower-cost iPhone 5c later today, and UK carrier O2 was the first to release the device for sale on its site for £409.99 ($682) off-contract — that’s £60 cheaper than the lowest price of the 16GB model (via 9to5Mac).

Apart from the reduced storage, the other specs of the 8GB iPhone 5c remain the same. It makes sense for Apple to roll out such a device, given that the iPhone 5chasn’t been doing as well as expected — and a phone with a lower price-point than what it already offers now may be the way to help boost sales, especially in countries such as China and India where consumers are more price-sensitive.
