Possible iPhone 5s, 5c launch date for SA

The iPhone 5s and 5c could launch in South Africa on 15 November 2013, if speculation by AppAdvice is to be believed.

This comes after carriers in the Philippines reportedly revealed that they will be launching the new iPhone models on 15 November.

Looking at the territories which have historically launched in the fourth wave with the Philippines, eliminating those where the iPhone 5s and 5c have already launched, AppAdvice offered the following list that may join the Philippines:

Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Ecuador, Grenada, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, Jordan, Kuwait, Panama, Paraguay, Philippines, Qatar, South Africa, and Venezuela.

MacRumors has since pointed out that carriers in Israel have said that they will launch the iPhone 5s and 5c on 3 November 2013.

The 15 November 2013 launch date is in line with the mid-November launch window MyBroadband received previously from an industry source.

MTN and Vodacom have opened “pre-registrations” for the iPhone 5s and 5c on their websites.
