Local sellers believe this new smart phone had recorded a great sale in Tehran’s markets. The price of iPhone 5 is not clear in Iran and merchants sell them in different prices due to the currency crisis in the country. But apparently the price of iPhone 5 has been set more than 30,000,000 Rials. Its average price is calculated more than 36,500,000 Iranian Rials.

The iPhone 5 is a touchscreen-based smartphone developed by Apple. It is the sixth iteration in the iPhone series succeeding the iPhone 4S. The phone is a slimmer, lighter model that introduces a higher-resolution, 4-inch screen to the series with 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio support. The phone also includes a custom-designed ARMv7 processor called the Apple A6, an update to Apple’s mobile operating system known as iOS 6, and support for LTE.
