iPhone 5 to be released in South Africa on 14 December 2012

Apple have just put out a press release confirming the availability of the iPhone 5 in South Africa on Friday the 14th of December.

The iPhone 5 is the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever, completely redesigned to feature a stunning new 4-inch Retina display; an Apple-designed A6 chip for blazing fast performance; and ultrafast wireless—all while delivering even better battery life.

I’m suspecting the cellular networks will announce pricing in the next day or so, and we start seeing the usual specials. I will update this post with pricing as it is announced
