If $869 and up for the new iPhone 5s is too rich for your blood, Friday 20 September also sees the cheaper iPhone 5c go on sale in Australia. And if that’s still too pricey, there’s also a bargain-priced 8GB iPhone 4S to be had.

The much-rumoured 5c comes in five colours: blue, green, pink, yellow and white. To add to the colour riot, there are six silicone cases specifically designed for the model. It runs iOS7, but uses a cheaper A6 processor. Like the 5s, it will include iPhoto, iMovie, Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iOS for free.

Optus, Telstra and Vodafone will all be selling it, as well as Apple stores. For an outright buy, you’ll pay $739 for the 16GB model or $869 for the 32GB model. There is no 64GB version. The new 8GB iPhone 4S is a somewhat cheaper buy at $529.
