Apple iPhone 6s release date reconfirmed as September 18th by carriers

Apple iPhone 6s release date reconfirmed as September 18th by carriers
Just as suggested by the Best Buy AppleCare leak the other day, Apple will be releasing the new iPhones 6s and 6s Plus, or whatever they get named, on September 18th, or precisely a week after they go on preorder, as usual. In a typical fashion, Apple will announce the new iOS telephony gear on Wednesday, September 9th, then unleash the preorders at midnight Friday 11th, then launch the phones in its retail shops the next Friday, September 18th.

As if to prove this scheme once again, two of the three major German carriers are tipped to prepare for an iPhone release at precisely the second Friday after the iPhone 6s announcement. Germany is one of the few countries where new iPhones launch concurrently with the US, so we'd assume this September 18th release date will hold water on this side of the pond as well. The iPhone 6s is expected to land with quite a few upgrades on board, like a Force Touch display, zippier A9 chip, and, above all, a brand new 12 MP camera on the rear, so we can't wait to clash it with Android's finest for the season.
