Apple iPhone 6s prices surface: no change, 16/64/128GB versions confirmed

Apple iPhone 6s prices surface: no change, 16/64/128GB versions confirmed

The prices for the upcoming Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have leaked out and there are no surprises: it is the same pricing model that Apple has been using in years past. The leak originates from Dutch sources, which also reveal that the official release date for the iPhone 6s will be September 25th (but keep in mind that the Netherlands might get the phone a week after the US, Germany and France, where it is said to arrive on September 18th).

What's a bit more interesting is that this latest leak once again reiterates that there will be three versions of each iPhone: one with 16GB of internal storage, a 64GB model and a 128GB version.

With this in mind, let's get right to the pricing:

iPhone 6S


iPhone 6S (Space Grey) 16GB/64GB/128GB (€699/€799/€899)
iPhone 6S (Silver) 16GB/64GB/128GB(€699/€799/€899)
iPhone 6S (Gold) 16/64GB/128GB(€699/€799/€899)

iPhone 6S Plus


iPhone 6S Plus (Space Grey) 16GB/64GB/128GB (€799/€899/€999)
iPhone 6S Plus (Silver) 16GB/64GB/128GB (€799/€899/€999)
iPhone 6S Plus (Gold) 16/64GB/128GB (€799/€899/€999)

So basically, prices start at €699 for the iPhone 6s and €799 for the phablet-sized iPhone 6s Plus.

With this in mind, we can assume that prices in the United States will also remain unchanged from the standard that Apple has been charging in past years.

The iPhone 6s is thus expected to cost $649 for the 16GB version, $749 for the 64GB model and $849 for the 128GB model. Then, the iPhone 6s Plus prices should start at $749 for the 16GB version, and go up to $849 for the 64 gig one and $949 for the 128GB model.

To freshen up your mind, the iPhone 6s family is expected to come with the following list of improvements:

- support for Force Touch
- new, 12-megapixel iSight (rear) camera with support for 4K video recording
- new, animated live wallpapers
- Apple A9 system chip, 2GB of RAM
- updated front camera
- new cellular modem by Qualcomm

As long as there is a 128GB. Though hopefully we will see 256GB by the 7S.

I hope they'll be advertising its 4K recording capabilities.
"Enjoy recording the great moments in your live in 4K" With 16GB that enjoinment will only last for a few minutes. LOL

If you are planning on recording that much in 4K, then you would not be buying the 16 gig version. You would be looking square at the 128 gig. Also, from what I understand, recording in 4k is an option.

Funny, when an Android phone comes out with 8GB of storage with an optional 16 or 32GB of storage for more money, you guys complain saying that the base should be at least X amount of storage. Yet in Apple's case it's just smart business. Am I missing some logic or are you just a hypocrite?

@vzwwuser77 You are a funny guy...

1.The vast majority of Android phones offer a microSD slot.

2. We're taking about an high-end quite expensive phone not an entry device for emerging markets with low retail prices and little profit.

3. They are advertising its great camera features. Recoding slow motion videos or worse 4K videos will consume a lot of data. If I pay 700 EURO for a handset then I don't want to get a warning massage after a few weeks that I don't have enough space to save a video or install an app.

The base version of a device like an Iphone should be 32GB and with 4K getting a standard 64GB would be even better.
It's not like that I'm hating Apple I'm a Macbook Pro user for years now, but I just don't like their Iphone politics. And that's why I stay with Android.

I wasn't saying anything about that, I was talking about how when some of these phones, like the Moto G may come with a base storage amount of 8GB, regardless if it has an SD card slot or not, some of the competition's fanbase call it unacceptable. Whereas here, in the same instance (and no SD card slot to fall back on) it's business 101. Why is it unacceptable for one company, and good business sense for another? That was my point.

I agree that base storage should be much higher than 16GB, for any phone, regardless of expandable storage. There are some apps that can't be put on an SD card and the further we go, the larger these apps get, especially games. Expandable storage should be there for things like music, pictures, documents, and video, things that don't need as high of a transfer rate to operate well.

I prefer expandable storage at least 32gb should be minimum standard for today smartphone. Apple known as mobile trendsetter (remember hype of retina display? now Apple are playing a catch-up and it's suddenly not that important). Apple pushes cloud storage option which suddenly is a new trend (not for me cause internet suck in my country & it'll cost a lot of data plan).

If it's not an iPhone, it's not an iPhone. Still hard to believe Samsung dumped external storage feature, guess i'll end up with older Note 4 or buy 64gb S6/Note 5 but in Android we had so many option and lot of manufacturer still offer this feature.

Funny how you back peddal after getting slammed dunked on tango_charlie. You are comparing a $44 dollar phone to a $700+ one. Is it too hard to expect for a phone at that level to have higher storage when they phone advertise great camera features that would make a 16g storage choke on it?

I didn't backpedal, I repeated the same thing I said in my first post. Please tell me how that is backpedaling?

Again, I'm not talking about the cost of one device versus another, I'm talking about the hypocrisy of the person making the comment. In fact, it should be worse condlsidering how much more they're paying for it over a phone like a Moto G. You two are acting like I'm on nctx77's side, which in fact is just the opposite.

Reading comprehension is you friend.

Polan, in fact phones are usually chepar here than in Euro countries, but still those prices suck. I once wanted to order iPhone from US because even with shipping and potential customs charges it would be still cheaper than buying it here.

Poland has 23% sales tax. Netherlands (my country) has 21%. USA has somewhere between 6 and 9% or so. So that does make a lot of difference.

Yup, and also in Poland a lot of people have to work like 2,5 months to be able to buy an iPhone without spending any money for bills etc. (This is the same with galaxy s6 and other flagship phones)

True, but I see a few iPhones everyday so it's not that bad, but most use mid range Androids, totally opposite to what I saw in Prague last month (and in UK 2 months ago), literally 50% of people there had iPhones.
But it isn't surprise as my country has so f0cked up economics and politicians :d

Let's be realistic. Most euro countries have an average tax rate of 20% (VAT). $650=€580. €580 x 20%= €116. €116+580= €696.

If only European citizens were smart enough to bitch at their politicians instead of companies, they'd be better off.

I have to agree with you, this is just for fanboys, theyre asking their cx to buy the 64Gb just to get the 100$ extra from them.

They should get rid of the 16GB version. Cancel 6C and reduce the price by £100-£200. This would put Apple ahead of the current 'flagship' competition. Imagine the sales increase!

Apple should release only 32, 64 and 128, but they are smart and by 16 they are forcing people to buy more expensive models.

64 is definitely the way to go. I purchased the 6 Plus with 16GB last year thinking I would be able to use iCloud as my backup storage. That was a huge mistake. Do not purchase the 16 if you take lots of pics or videos. ICloud is not very intuitive and I gave up on that and started using Google Plus for auto photo backup.

you mean like how top U.S officials got their google account hacked by Chinese spies? and how these spies have did a literal breach on Google servers?

http://www.techworm.net/2015/08/china-hacked-email-accounts-of-top-us-national-security-personal.html

or how about the 5 million Google accounts that managed to get hacked into and all these Google acounts got hacked and had their account information all posted online? (over 5% of the accounts here that have been breached and hacked are active users so 5% of 5 million is 250,000 active users got hacked and breached)

everything is on your Google account, all your search queries, your location history, your documents and files on Google drive, your google plus account, everything related and connected to your Google account, all your photos on Google photos, etc, i would easily say there is much more of a data goldmine on people's google accounts then say iCloud accounts which usually only has photos/videos/app data saved/some notes, but nothing like the services Google can provide you with if you have a account with them. (logging and saving all your search queries, location history, etc etc, everything)

but its only okay when a few celebrities that use a iPhone are victims because its Apple and alot of android fanboys just despise Apple but people sweep these Google breaches under the rug lol......

anything online is not truly 100% secure, local storage is ALWAYS the preffered storage method for me and that is why i always opt for as much storage on a device as possible, no reliance on a connection, its all right there local on your device saved, not on any servers. id rather not let a companies deep learning computer machine algorithimtize and scan all my photos every detail of them in it and stuff like that lol, local storage>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> cloud storage for me, plus i dont want to pay for online storage when i can just put that money torwards more local storage on the device

learn to be objective, itll help you in long run

Calm down i didn't want to say that only Apple is unsecured just want to mention that cloud storage isn't at all safe and about Gmail the actual privacy you get is around zero if you want to send an important thing with it then you should zip it.
And also cloud storage are not even promised to be safer than an hard drive i recently heard that a Google cloud storage have been hit by several lightning and lose all the data.

The question you have to ask yourself is which one would you actually buy? For most people, the 32 gig would be enough. At that point, not many would buy the 64. It's business 101.

2GB of ram and animated wallpapers. Sounds like the Windows Vista nightmare but the phone version. There was really nothing wrong with Vista(manufacturers didn't push out new drivers quickly enough, and OEMs only shipped desktops with the minimum amount of ram for vista itself, 4-8gb of ram would have prevented the major hate thrown on vista, which was more feature rich than Windows 7, 7 essentially is vista lite).

Wow a year old iPhone barely being outpaced by double spec'd best of android that was just released with latest and greatest tech. I'm impressed by iPhone. But to add there are videos of iPhone actually beating android phones that came out way after the 6.

One thing I remember (as they launched RR3) is that my 2 year old 5s had no missing polygons of the track and the New Note 4 did when I saw my friend playing it.

Lol it got destroyed. 8 seconds isn't barely, especially with a much heavier load. It's a shame you itards fall for the marketing bs.

If someone lifts a thousand pounds 8 seconds faster than an itard lifts 10 pounds you look at more than the seconds. That's something you itards fail to realize.

What the hell you talking about... both phones did exactly the same, yet one of them has double the spec sheet... I can also bet both were hard reset and all background tasking unloaded before the test... In these tests both phones are lifting same amount of "pounds"...

You can clamp to this pathetic video all you want, there are just as many videos where iPhones beat double speced androids in app launch and switch tests...

Even in this video, you can tell when it comes to major graphics 1 year old iPhone was always faster, while the Brand NEW Spec'ed out Samsung was taking more time...

In reference to your post #73... ugly 750p? that's your opinion, I can honestly say - they both look the same unless i'm 5 inches from my face - which I never do...

iOS a joke? well that's your opinion and you're entitled to it.. My opinion of Android is that it's a HUGE MESS that I dont want to deal with - I got a life and a business to run, not change my icons and fonts... I also dont need my phone loosing battery while it's not in use - I dont like surprises when it comes to tech - I want predictability - because everyday tasks are more important than the pink kitty icons and rooting just to get an update quicker...
