iPhone 5: Three on board from September 21st

Three has become the latest carrier to confirm it will be offering the iPhone 5, as the dust still settles on yesterday’s launch event.

The network will be selling the iPhone 5 from September 21st – the date Apple named for official retail availability during the press call. We’ve approached Three's PR types to see when pre-orders start. But assuming Three sticks to Apple’s script, this ought to be September 14th.

Pricing remains under-wraps. However, going by last year and the fact that US prices are in line with the iPhone 4S, you can probably expect to pick up the iPhone 5 on Three's One plan from £36 per month, plus an upfront free of £99.

Three is the first carrier aside from partner networks T-Mobile and Orange and their EE umbrella brand to announce anything around the handset.

In the immediate future, however, EE is the only UK provider with the 4G network able to take advantage of the super-fast mobile internet speeds that the iPhone 5 supports.

Announcements from O2 and Vodafone are expected in the next few days. In the meantime, for a one-stop roadmap to the iPhone 5’s availability and price points, check our handy, all-networks guide.
