Apple slashes iPhone 6s prices, upgrades storage options

Now that Apple finally announced its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, you may be wondering what's happening to the iPhone 6s series. Well, this won't go way, and Apple will continue to sell the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus at reduced prices - most likely until September next year, when the 2017 iPhone family should arrive.

Starting today, Apple is listing the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus only in 32 GB and 128 GB variants, so the 16 GB and 64 GB models have been discontinued. Prices are as follows:

  • iPhone 6s 32 GB - $549 (available to order on September 9)
  • iPhone 6s 128 GB - $649 (available right away)
  • iPhone 6s Plus 32 GB - $649 (available to order on September 9) 
  • iPhone 6s Plus 128 GB - $749 (available right away)
The 4-inch iPhone SE will also remain available, costing $399 (16 GB) or $449 (64 GB).

As you may have heard, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus offer various important new features, including water resistance, Apple A10 Fusion chipset, new 12 MP cameras, stereo speakers, and up to 256 GB of storage space. But some people may still prefer the older iPhone models, not just because they're now cheaper, but also because the new models do not feature 3.5 mm headset jacks. So, are you one of the customers pondering to get an iPhone 6s or SE in the near future?

Iphone 7 has shown a new way to next generation iphones. The gap between iphone and android performance is going to widen from 2016 onwards. Thanx to A10chip.

tell me, what do you do on phone? render video? or consume content? and now think what is better 750 screen and long animations with high fps or proper 1440 amoled screen? and please dont tell me nothing about gaming, my pc can probably push 200fps+ on 720p screen, but i do like to use 1440p.

To watch video or gaming , 1080p screen on a 5.5 inch device is more than enough. Even devices like OP3 has 1080p screen and quality is very good. So if someone is mainly using mobile for videos and gaming will go for larger 5.5 inch iphone 7 plus. Rest will buy 4.7 inch iphone 7 for casual gaming and videos. So for them 750p is more than enough. Apple does not have to push for specs war like android manufacturers who live in fear of loosing market value. As far as amoled is concerned , though it is preferable, but it is not a dealbreaker. Even lg v20 has no OLED screen.

"Good Enough." If you want to settle, that's your option. But it's accepted that the higher res AMOLED screens are better in nearly every way.

I'd take my battery over a fancy ass screen any day, what good is 2K resolution if you can't use that dead phone

It's a good device, but hasn't been the best for several years.

No, it is the best. It doesn't explode in your pocket.

You're in denial. And you're seething in anger because of the truth.

If they change the storage is that still considered the same phone?

I'm actually impressed with this move by Apple. Keep these options around for those who prefer the older models with the 3.5mm headset jack, upgrade the storage and slash the prices on them. Not bad.

It\s a good move. I expect the 6s will outsell the 7 over the year.

It is a good move indeed. And we won't have to worry about it exploding.
