Those looking to get their hands on Apple’s latest main smartphone in time for the holidays should not have a difficulty.
Apple this week updated its online store to say that all carrier versions of the iPhone 5s are now available to send within 24 hours including the sought after gold model. Those looking to buy an unsubsidized and unlocked handset will, yet, still must wait a couple of days for their device.
The new shipping times are a huge advancement over previous delays. The silver and space gray models, meanwhile, have faced transportation delays as long as 7 to 10 business days.
At this point, the space grey, silver, and gold iPhone 5s models in all storage capacities are advertised as available to send within 24 hours. This consists of models compatible with Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint.
If you’d rather choose the unlocked and contract-free iPhone 5s with a T-Mobile SIM card, you’ll need to wait 1-3 business days, while the SIM-free unlocked model$739.00 at Amazon is listed with an estimated wait time of 3-5 days.
You’ll get a break on transport costs, if you’re planning to purchase a brand new iPhone for the holiday season. Apple is offering free shipping on everything ordered through 5’s store through Dec. 22. But remember to check out the Christmas shipping deadlines of Apple.
Since its launch, the 5s has been a hot commodity. Apple sold 9 million united 5s and 5c versions in its first weekend of release.
Entertainment personality Ryan Seacrest has his hand in everything, from radio and television to philanthropy and picture. But now he seems to be taking a page from Ashton Kutcher’s playbook to add technology to his laundry list of investments.
Seacrest threw his money and influence behind The Typo Keyboard Case, a new iPhone accessory which he helped to co-found. An exact amount wasn’t shown, but All Things D reported that Seacrest and his co-founder invested more than a $1 million, and could fork over more than $5 million.
It ends up, in Hollywood, everyone carries two phones one for long- shape typing, and an iPhone for basically everything. Inspired by the business’s surpluses, Seacrest and Show Media CEO Laurence Hallier determined to take matters into their own hands.
“After ordering every smartphone computer keyboard accessible, they recognized that there was no alternative that worked well,” a Typo news release said. “That is when the Typo Keyboard was created.”
After almost two years of development, engineering, testing, and feedback, the “indispensable business tool” is gearing up for its debut at January’s Consumer Electronics Show.
Constructed for the iPhone 5 and 5s, the two-piece accessory slides onto the handset, serving as a protective casing and full keyboard. Exceptionally reminiscent of the Blackberry’s celebrated QWERTY keyboard, the iPhone’s allimportant House button is covered by the sadly called Typo, and adds length to the 5 -inch device.
But, removing the need for letters that are on-screen, users gain 40 percent of the display back, leaving more room to write e-mails or reminder words on the run.
According to the business site, the 1.4-oz case doubles typing time, and, ironically, reduces the quantity of typos. In addition, it includes a backlit keyboard and a rapid-charging 180 mAh battery, prepared for use in a hour.
