The iPhone 5C and 5S appear to have had their names confirmed, while details suggest that Apple’s phone will have three price range options.

According to Tech in Asia, Chinese network provider China Telecom issued an accidental update to its customer service site, stating “China has been chosen as [the /a] first country where the iPhone 5S/5C will be shipped!”

The post seems to confirm that two iPhone models, the 5C and 5S, will be announced at Apple’s conference on September 10th, as rumours have long suggested.

Vodafone Germany has also contributed to rumours concerning Apple’s upcoming smartphone.

The German arm of the Vodafone mobile network confirmed that they will be discontinuing the 32GB and 64GB iPhone 5 models, as well as the iPhone 4S, leaving only the 16GB version of the iPhone 5 remaining.

The move supports suggestions that the iPhone 5C will cater to the lower-budget end of the market, while the iPhone 5S becoming the top end model. The remaining iPhone 5 is therefore expected to slot into the mid-range market.
