Israeli models launching on November 3rd

(Updated with UAE info) Israel's Cellcom, Orange, and Pelephone have announced plans to launch the iPhone 5s and 5c on November 3rd, according to local business publication Globes. The carriers were previously expected to debut the new phones on November 7th. Cellcom will sell a 16GB 5s for NIS 3,700, and a 16GB 5c for NIS 3,000. Pelephone is asking NIS 3,680 and 3,220 for the same models. No Orange prices have been announced; sources say that HOT Mobile is also expected to get the new iPhones, but no dates or prices have been hinted at.

In the Philippines, meanwhile, carriers Smart and Globe have said they will start selling the 5s and 5c on November 15th. Apple should continue introducing iPhones to more countries throughout the rest of 2013, but it's unclear if any other international "waves" will be announced. The first one took place on October 25th, and a second is scheduled for November 1st. The latter will bring the 5s and 5c to over a dozen countries, including India, Turkey, and Mexico.

Update: The United Arab Emirates will also get the new iPhones on November 3rd, Apple's regional website states.
