Apple officially unveiled the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus at a media event in San Francisco on Wednesday. Though the new phones resemble their predecessors in terms of design, they bring some major enhancements. The iPhone 6S and its bigger sibling come with 3D Touch display, an improved 12MP main camera, A9 processor, faster TouchID, and Series 7000 aluminum body.
iPhone 6S pre-order begin Sept.12
Apple said it will start accepting pre-orders for the new phones starting September 12. The devices will go for sale in 12 countries on Sept.25. These 12 countries are: Australia, China, France, Canada, Germany, United States, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Japan, Puerto Rico, the UK, and Singapore. If you are looking to buy the iPhone 6S or 6S Plus, you must be wondering how much it would cost in your country.
Apple said the new iPhones will retain the same price bands as their predecessors in the United States. It means the 16GB base model iPhone 6S would cost $199 on-contract, while the cheapest 6S Plus will set you back by $299 on-contract. If you want to pay in full, the iPhone 6S costs $649 (16GB), $749 (64GB), and $849 (128GB). Add an extra $100 for the same storage option of the 6S Plus.
Apple has become up with an interesting payment plan. The company allows users to lease a new iPhone for just $32 per month, and return it to get a newer model every year. Apple has made the deal a bit more lucrative by including the AppleCare+ warranty.
