In September, Apple has released its two new iPhones, the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, which come with many new features but aside from the new rose gold color option, the devices look mostly the same as the ones that have been released last year.
However, these two devices received some improvements such as better cameras, the 3D touch technology, a new processor and many more. The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S reached the stores on September 25, 2015 and both of the models will be available directly from Apple’s stores and carrier locations.
For now, the pricing for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S remains the same as the last year’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch price, but it is good to know that Apple has some new monthly installment plans and the carriers do have some promotions and deals that will might be good for you.
For example, in the US, the starting price of iPhone 6S will be 199 dollars for the 16GB variant of internal storage variant. However, if you want to get the 64GB model, you will need to pay 299 dollars, while the 128GB variant of internal storage costs 399 dollars. Of course, all these prices are available for a 2-year contract with a carrier, but if you want to buy the iPhone 6S without a contract, depending on the internal storage that you want, you will need to pay 649 dollars (16GB), 749 dollars (64GB) or 849 dollars (128GB).
If you want to purchase the iPhone 6S Plus with a two year contract, you will need to pay 299 dollars for the 16GB variant of internal storage, 399 for the 64GB variant or 499 dollars for the 128GB model. If you want to buy the iPhone 6S Plus without a contract, you will need to pay 749 dollars (16GB), 849 dollars (64GB) or 949 (128GB).
