While Apple has yet to announce a schedule or country list for its second major round of iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c launches, the company does appear to be coordinating a minor expansion of availability for Tuesday, October 1, with a number of smaller regional U.S. carriers announcing plans to launch the devices on that date.
Carriers involved in the October 1 launch include:
– Appalachian Wireless
– Bluegrass Cellular
– C Spire
– Nex-Tech Wireless
Several other regional carriers have announced that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are “coming soon” and some of those carriers may also be participating in the October 1 rollout, but they have not announced their exact launch dates yet.
Apple has gradually expanded availability of the iPhone on regional carriers throughout the United States in recent years, with over 25 U.S. carriers now offering the device.by macrumors
