However, the choice was made decidedly less clear by Apple’s announcement of the iPhone Upgrade Program, which sees customers sign a 24-month contract and in exchange you get to trade-in your current iPhone for a new iPhone every year, along with AppleCare+ coverage.
– Voluntary smartphone insurance from T-Mobile is an additional $8 per month, which covers damage repairs and a replacement device for lost or stolen phones. The monthly rate swells to $20 a month if you don’t have a phone to trade in. If you combined this with a iPhone 6s over 24 months, it would set you back $95 in total but also give you the freedom to move between networks and deals as you please.
Apple unveils the price of the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus at the live Apple Event in San Francisco, September 9, 2015. Apple announced Wednesday that it was suspending all its preorders for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus ahead of launch due to huge demand for the new phones. This is a deal that only the Un-carrier could create, let alone make into a reality – and the insane demand we’re already seeing tells me the carrier’s customers just aren’t buying their BS anymore.
Both phones also are now capable of 4K video, run on iOS 9 and include new 5MP FaceTime HD front cameras. Apple vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller claims iPhone users can take video with better resolution.
The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus hit stores Friday, with Apple fans around the world camping out in line to become some of the first owners of the new devices.
The new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus feature a different kind of touch screen that can sense how long and hard someone is pressing, a stronger aluminum body, faster and more efficient processor, higher resolution cameras, and a new GIF-like photo function. The new iPhones will go on sale on September 25 in the USA, China, France, the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia and other nations. Prices for the iPhone 6s Plus start at $299 for a 16GB model and range to $499 for a 128GB version. Frankly, the improvements that Apple has delivered generation over generation in going from the iPhone 6 to the 6s are quite impressive.
