The first batches of iPhone 5 unboxing pictures and videos are starting to go live as we type this. BGR has received some attention for posting about the first un-boxing photos of iPhone 5. Apple still has the knack for slick packaging – which also manages to be minimally wasteful. The box includes a power adapter, a Lightning cable, new Earpod headphones, and a travel case for the Earpods with some sparse printed documentation. All the components are neatly fit into the packaging, and there’s a big iPhone 5 photo on the front.
Apple’s iPhone 5 will be available in both color (Black, White) schemes at all Apple retail stores in the USstarting at 8 a.m. local time on Friday, September 21. The black version will have a black anodized aluminum back while the white version will have a raw aluminum back. The iPhone 5 will cost $199, $299, and $399 respectively for the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models with a 2 year contract. Select Best Buy, Target, Walmart stores and Apple Authorized Resellers will also be retailing the iPhone 5.
Apple has already set an aggressive rollout: on 21 September the phone will go on sale in nine key markets, including theUS,Canada,UK,JapanandHong Kong. The iPhone 5 will become available in 22 more countries next month and in 100 countries by the end of the year.
