As it has done in the past for new iPhone introductions, Apple announced today that it will continue selling its previous generation iPhone 6, 6 Plus, and the iPhone 5S at reduced price points after it begins selling its iPhone 6s models later this month. The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus get a new rose gold color option in addition to the space gray, silver, and gold options that were available for the last two iPhone models, and in the process Apple appears to be discontinuing the gold model for the older devices.
As pictured above in a comparison chart from Apple’s newly updated website, iPhone 6, 6 Plus, and 5s buyers will get the option of silver or space gray going forward.
Apple’s new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models officially go up for preorder starting September 12 and will go on sale in stores September 25. The new device takes over the pricing of last year’s model starting at $199 on contract, while the older iPhones stick around in two capacities including the iPhone 5s at $0 (16GB) or $49 (32GB), the iPhone 6 for $99 (16GB) or $199 (64GB), and the iPhone 6 Plus for $199 (16GB) or $299 (64GB).
