Empty shelves at Apple NZ iPhone store

 

Screen-Shot-2013-09-11-at-4.14.34-PMNew Zealand isn’t at the front of the queue for Apple’s new iPhone 5S and 5C models. Customers in some countries, including Australia, can pre-order the new smartphones before the launch.

They get the phones on Friday September 20 and can pre-order from September 13. Neither option appears to be available here.

Apple departed with its usual practice and discontinued the existing iPhone model when it announced the two new versions. As you can see above it no longer features in New Zealand’s iPhone store. For now, if you want an iPhone your choice is limited to the old-school 4S model.
