2degrees is finally filling a conspicuous gap in its smartphone lineup.
The company says it will carry the iPhone 5s, 5c and 4s from Friday December 13.
It has yet to announce any pricing for contract plans, or handset subsidies; a spokeswoman tells NBR it won't be revealed until the 13th.

2degrees has previously grabbed a slice of the Apple action through the backdoor approach of selling iPhone-compatible micro-sim cards.
Although 2degrees boasted one million customers at its last update, it said only 10% were on higher-yielding contract plans. The company will be looking to Apple's handset to boost that stat.
Telecom and Vodafone are already official iPhone carriers.
Vodafone is the only official carrier for the 4G-capable versions of Apple's iPad.
