We are pleased to announce that we can confirm that iPhone 5C and 5S models are now supported by our AIO 5
Because the sim trays of iPhone 5S and 5C are similar with iPhone 5 and there is no need for a hardware update of our AIO to work with this phones we decided to release the unlock for iPhone 5s and 5C as an update for existing and future AIO 5 customers.
The updates are in first stages and you could have some difficulties on some networks but this is something we will solve together to make AIO 5 the best product on the market for iPhone 5 /5C/5S unlocking.
There are 2 updates available, one for iPhone 5s and one for iPhone 5c. The updates are similar in functions and sometimes you can use the 5c update to unlock 5s but there are some internal differences so we recommend you to use the specific update according to your iPhone model.
We give this updates for FREE for all our existing customers. Because of an increase in price of the aluminium sim trays (the new ones we are shipping are originals trays custom machine drilled for AIO) and an increase of the development cost for the new iPhones (we had to buy already 4 phones for testing) and also because we have a lot of bad AIO in the testing stages of our production we have decided to make a small adjustment of price for our AIO 5 products. The price increase is only of 0.3 USD/ pcs witch translates into the new prices per packs of ten: 1+69 USD / 2+63 USD / 3+57 USD / 5+50 USD / 10+43 USD / 20+40 USD, the prices including programming dongle will be updated accordingly. (OBS. Price for only 10 pcs/1pack has increased more than 0.3 USD/pcs also because of higher handling and shipping costs).
Update you AIO 5 using our online update software with the required version and program the correct settings (settings are similar with iPhone 5). Firmware Version 5 is for 5C and Firmware Version 6 is for 5S. The new updates also are GID 2 compatible. We will release after this announcement also an improved update software to support this feature.
For GSM models – this updates should work without problems out of the box.
For CDMA models – you are still required to use iRose tool that we have posted here earlier in order to use USIM 128K or more cards with your iPhone 5c/5s. We will prepare soon a better alternative but in the meanwhile we recommend you to use that. Another TIP we can give you based on our testing is the IMSI required on Multi-Mode compatible CDMA networks.
