iPhone 5s and 5c will only roam on 4G to France and Germany

Here's something Apple somehow forgot to mention in its glitzy presentation last night: if you're going abroad, the new iPhones will only connect over 4G in France and Germany.

This is what the handy LTE page of the tech giant's website says. Head there, and you'll see the models bound for the UK (A1507 for the 5c, A1457 for the 5s) will only support 4G in the UK, Germany and France.

This could change, of course. Apple could still be hammering out deals with various networks around the world, so best keep an eye on the page.

But it's unlikely to change before launch day next week.

That's not to say you won't be able to use your shiny new toy abroad. The 5s and 5c will doubtless work on 3G networks all around the world. Just don't expect the nippy speeds you're used to on 4G.

Apple announced the iPhone 5s and 5c last night and it seems the rumour mill was pretty spot on.

The 5s features a fingerprint scanner for greater security and simplified online shopping, while the 5c is a plastic model that comes in five colours.

A host of cases are also available for the iPhone 5c.

The rumours were wrong about the price, though. The iPhone 5c costs £469 for the lowest-capacity model, which isn't exactly cheap.
