The 8GB iPhone 5c is around €50 cheaper than the 16GB model in most regions. The new model has also been spotted in Switzerland, Austria, Ireland and Portugal at around the the same price differentiation as the Netherlands.

Apple launched the 8GB version of the iPhone 5c in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia and China in March. The new model sells in the UK for £50 on-contract (around $80 USD) and £429 off-contract. A 16GB iPhone 5c in the US retails for $99 on-contract and $549 off-contract, as a comparison.

The 8GB iPhone 5c features the same specs as the 16GB model.

In March, Apple also discontinued the iPad 2 and replaced it with the fourth-generation model in its iPad lineup.
