Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency -- also known as Anatel -- has granted regulatory approval for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, reports say. The agency states that the iPhones to be sold will be built at Foxconn's Jundiai factory, near Sao Paulo. Documents also show that they will run on Brazil's native LTE frequency, 2600MHz; previous iPhones and iPads available in Brazil have only operated in the 700MHz band.
The rapid approval
suggests that Brazil will get the 5s and 5c much faster than it has received some other Apple products. One notorious example is the iPad mini, which only arrived in Brazil eight months after its US launch. Brazil is not, however, among the countries getting the 5s and 5c on October 25th or November 1st
