|Apple iPhone 5S for Tracfone|
We’ve known about Apple iPhones coming to Tracfone for several months now, but the 5S at Target is the first sighting of what will likely be a full lineup of Apple devices available to Tracfone users.
The iPhone 5S features 16 GB memory, a stunning 8 MP camera and a somewhat small 4″ touchscreen. You also get access to the Apple App Store and iOS, the Apple operating system.
Many Tracfone users know that Apple phones have been available to use on Tracfone’s prepaid network for more than a year, but only through the BYOP program, where there’s no guarantee of compatibility. So this is a deal for those who want an iPhone through Tracfone.
What might be more surprising than the iPhone 5S coming to Tracfone is the price. Target has the Tracfone iPhone 5S for $199 (on sale for $149 briefly), which is a very reasonable price for this phone. On the Tracfone website, the iPhone 5S is listed for just $149.
Below we are going to share some of the features and specs for the iPhone 5S followed by where to you can buy the phone. We’ll be working on a full review of the Tracfone iPhone 5S soon.
Tracfone iPhone 5S Features and Specs
What you get with the Tracfone 5S:
- Apple iOS with access to the Apple App Store
- 4G LTE using CDMA service (Verizon cell towers)
- Micro USB Charger included
- Headphones included
- 16 GB Internal Memory
- 1 GB RAM
- Dual Core 1.3 Ghz processor
- 4″ Touchscreen (640×1136)

Apple devices have always been a bit weak when it comes to specs, but performance-wise they hold up just fine. Some of the highlights for this phone include the 16 GB internal memory for storing apps, photos and other things, and the 8 MP rear camera which can record great images or HD video.
The camera on iPhone’s have long been a selling point, and even though the iPhone 5S is a few years old, the camera is still well beyond most other devices available from Tracfone.

Where to Buy the Tracfone iPhone 5S
|Apple iPhone 5S at Target|
The iPhone 5S is available directly from Tracfone.com. Simply navigate to ‘Shop for Phones’ and follow the tromps to view phones available in your area. The Tracfone iPhone 5S is for CDMA networks, but some users are reporting that it shows up even when they enter a GSM zipcode.
As we’ve already mentioned, the iPhone 5S is currently available at Target retail stores. We’ve found it in stock at 1 out of 3 local Targets, so it might not be available in every one.
You can also find the Tracfone iPhone 5S on the Target Website. We will update if it becomes available elsewhere.
This phone is retailing for just $199 at Target or $149 at Tracfone.com, which even at $199 is a great value for the device as it is hard to find an unlocked iPhone 5S for under $200. Many unlocked iPhone 5S devices are going for closer to $300.
We are looking forward to gathering more information about this iPhone and the availability. Please leave a comment with your thoughts, opinions or questions!
