As of April 2015, the cost of an Apple iPhone 5s ranges from $99 to $599 in brand new condition. The lower price tag typically comes along with a contract requirement. An unlocked iPhone 5s, which is eligible for activation on various mobile networks without a contract, generally costs more.
Apple offers the iPhone 5c for free with a contract through Sprint, Verizon Wireless and AT&T. It is also possible to finance the phone through these carriers with a contract. The iPhone5 is also available for $450 without a contract for T-Mobile or SIM card-free for activation elsewhere. Boost Mobile sells the iPhone 5c for $299 without a contract.
In addition to contract stipulations, the size of storage affects the overall price of an iPhone5.
