Unlocked iPhone 5S/5C now offered locally by Beyond the Box
For the past several years, Apple’s iPhone has been officially offered locally in the Philippines by two service providers — Globe and Smart. That changes today.
Starting November 15, Beyond the Box – a local Apple Premium reseller, will include the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C as part of its offering.
The iPhone units coming from Beyond the Box will include local Apple warranty. This is a great improvement compared from the past when unlocked iPhone units are usually sold in the grey market which often leaves the buyer without the official warranty/support coming an official Apple reseller.
The prices of the iPhone units range from Php 34K+ to Php 44K+ for the iPhone 5S. The 32GB iPhone 5C has a list price of Php 34,200 while the 16GB version costs Php 29,000.
