iPhone 6s + 6s Plus: $199-$499, preorders start Sept. 12, in stores Sept. 25



After officially revealing the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus this morning, Apple confirmed pricing and availability details for both new models. Off-contract, the iPhone 6s will sell for either $649 (16GB), $749 (64GB) or $849 (128GB), versus $749 (16GB), $849 (64GB) or $949 (128GB) for the iPhone 6s Plus. Both of the new iPhones will be available for pre-order on September 12, and reach first customers on September 25.

On a 24-month contract, the iPhone 6s will sell for $199 (16GB), $299 (64GB), and $399 (128GB). Carrier financing for the 6s will start at $27 per month over 24 months. Each iPhone 6s Plus model will sell for a $100 premium over the iPhone 6s, ranging from $299 to $499. Carrier financing will start at $31 per month over 24 months. Apple will continue to offer the older iPhone 5s in two capacities ($0/16GB, $49/32GB), with the iPhone 6 ($99/16GB, $199/64GB) and iPhone 6 Plus ($199/16GB, $299/64GB) also at two capacities each.

Apple also announced an iPhone Upgrade Program, enabling customers to get the latest iPhone each year with their choice of carriers. The program will include an unlocked phone with AppleCare+, starting at $32 per month.

      16gb = enterprise customers. Lol the cheapskates that won’t pay 100 for 4 times the storage.

    Does anyone have official confirmation that they will be offering the iPhone 6S with off-contract pricing at launch? I have zero desire to switch to AT&T Next and still wish to purchase my devices directly through Apple. Thanks.

      I’m sure it will, I can’t remember if Apple still blocks the sell of them during the launch window or not. I think the last few phones you could buy unlocked at launch, but I could be mistaken.

  3. so where is the 2GB RAM?

    • taoprophet420 - 7 years ago

      Apple does not announce the ram on the iDevices. Won’t know what it has until a tear down or benchmark.

    No gold on any model except, 6s and 6 plus. They are trying to get the Asian Markey to update to the. Deer devices. Smart move Apple.

    I can’t believe the 64GB iPhone 6s Plus is $1159 in Canada. That’s around a 35% increase of the US price…that is insane! I know that our dollar isn’t doing very well, but it’s not doing that poorly.

    NextWorth (with 10% coupon… thanks 9to5!) gave me $412 for my iPhone 6, 64GB. With the Apple iUP, I can upgrade to a 6S+ 64 GB and have it cost me $489 for 1 year. Essentially I am paying $70 to get a 6S+ with Apple Care. Easy deal.
