The launch of iPhone 6 means you can now buy an iPhone 5s for $99 on contract, and an iPhone 5c for free
As always whenever Apple announces new iPhones, older models get significant price cuts. Today, the Cupertino giant announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which means that last year’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are now cheaper. Thus, you’ll be able to buy the iPhone 5s starting at $99 on contract (down from $199), and the iPhone 5c for free (down from $99). Mind you, this free iPhone 5c is the 8 GB model. As for the iPhone 4s, which was the only free iPhone until today, it looks like this is finally being phased out. Well, it was about time - it’s a three year old device.

The Apple Store hasn’t been updated yet, but we assume this will happen in the next few hours to reflect the new prices for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.

As we already told you, the brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be launched on September 19, with pre-orders beginning this Friday, September 12. The iPhone 6 (which sports a 4.7-inch display) will be offered starting at $199 on contract, while prices for the iPhone 6 Plus (the largest iPhone ever, featuring a 5.5-inch screen) start at $299.

Are you buying any of the two new iPhones, or do you plan to save some cash and go for an older (and smaller) model? Let us know in the comments!

Can someone put the trolls above back in their cages? I mean no one really cares about the note 4 since this was an article on the 5s

Feeling defensive that the newest iToy is so… uninspiring?

Just waiting for the Note 4 to start shipping on VZW. One of my upgrades is ready to be applied to the Note 4.

What will be the price of 4.7" off contract? Will it be like always 450$+to the contract price?

The 4s will be phased out? Bollocks.. We have a lot of iPhone users (>100) at my work which I have to support and once news travels around the 4s will be no longer available, they will break down all of a sudden...

No power saving mode etc, Guess they need to save that for 6 plus S.

I heard a rumor Tim was invested in Mophie. Got to give the fan base a reason to buy a Mophie juicepak case….

Didn't like the design, looks crap. iPhone 5s is still more stylish, premium looking & enough powerful for me. I'm not going to upgrade, not this year at least.

But, I liked the iWatch, really.

I think the few last weeks have been decent for mobile tech. Note 4 has OIS, Z3 and Ascend Mate 7 last forever on a single charge, future G3 owners get spare batteries, Windows Phone got 4K video support and more OEMs on board, Kyocera successfully made a sapphire screen phone without failing drop tests *ahem* and Nokia's new midranger has a more advanced (or at least more appealing) camera module than either iPhone 6. Just let that sink in, Tim Cook. Take all the time you need.

RadioShack have the 5s on $99 and the 5c free long time ago!

So now IF I purchase and drop my new slimmer iphone 6 the screen will still shatter, the battery life will still be less than subpar and I'll have to wait who knows how long for my apps to be updated so I can experience the benefits of the larger screen. Oh, and moving the power button to the side, that was real innovative especially since you moved it to allow for an SD slot, no just moved it. Umm okay...I might have to finally take a second look at these androids...

Not a samsung fan but, note 3 is (at least on paper) better than the 6 plus with 3x the ram, higher resolution camera, higher res video recording, bigger battery, thougher body and better multitasking. And the note 4 RAPES its *femenine* compitition.
