Staples ad confirms Apple iPhone 6s name...or does it?

There really wasn't much doubt that the two new iPhones getting unveiled this Wednesday would be named the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. But just in case you had a very tiny thought in the back of your mind that Apple would cave in to 6S Marketing's request, a poorly timed newspaper ad from Staples seals the deal. Or does it?
In the office supply store's Sunday circular (you know, the ads that make your Sunday paper triple the regular size), is an ad for the Verizon Apple iPhone 6/6s. The ad reveals that Big Red will give buyers of either iPhone model $100 in instant credit, and a $100 Visa prepaid card rebate with any new Device Payment activation on a Verizon phone. We wonder if the copywriter meant to write iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus. This wouldn't be the first time that some confusion reigned because the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus was accidentally listed as the iPhone 6s. Looking at the ad, it does look like the image shows the iPhone 6 and the larger phablet next to it.
Apple will make the two new phones official on Wednesday, September 9th. At the same time, we could see the Apple iPad mini 4 and the Apple iPad Pro unveiled as well. There are bound to be some interesting leaks in the next few days, so check in with us early and often!
Thanks for the tip!

Not nearly as much as Android fanboys bend over for Apple in the closet.

iPhone 6plus and 6 will have the same screen size as their earlier models. Going by your PPI values. The resolutions are: 1125X2000 for the iPhone 6s 1240X2205 for the iPhone 6S+ They usually never change the resolutions in the S series. Also, the resolution of the 6 is too close to 1080p. Why not go for 1080p then. Edit: didn't realise you posted resolutions too. Just confirmed my calculations ^^

Well, duh. Apple is a big name and they generate lots of attention. PA posted a bunch of articles about Samsung when the S6 Edge + and Note 5 were released. They also did the same thing with Sony a few days ago.
