Preorders for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus start tomorrow 12:01 AM PT with general availability from September 25th, so its time to decide what size, color and storage capacity you will be buying for this iPhone generation. The iPhone 6s features 3D Touch pressure sensitivity, an upgraded 12 megapixel camera, 4K video recording, Live Photos, a faster A9 chip, improved Touch ID and more. Like last year, the difference between the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus is the larger screen (5.5 inch versus 4.7 inch) and the inclusion of optical image stabilization on the larger model.

The iPhone 6s costs $199 for 16 GB, 64 GB for $299 and 128 GB for $399 on contract, with the iPhone 6s Plus $100 more at each level. New for this year is a rose gold option, so that’s another choice to consider alongside silver, space gray and gold. With that in mind, what iPhone are you planning on buying? Let us know with the following polls ….

What iPhone model are you going to buy? iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus — 4.7 inches or 5.5 inches?

What color? Remember, this year Apple has added a pinkish rose gold variant in the mix.

What size? 16 GB is once again offered as the base model, unfortunately. With the addition of more megapixels and 4K video recording, you may want to consider larger storage sizes.

For the general public, the 16 GB iPhone 6s tends to be the common choice but our tech-focused audience is likely to lean to more premium options. We’ll follow up with a review of what our readers decided in a few days and be sure to vote in our other poll if you are an upgrader.

Of course, once you’ve settled on an iPhone model to buy, you then have the problem with how to buy it. That question is more complicated than ever this year with the new carrier contracts so be sure to check out our roundup to compare your options.

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus preorders start Saturday at 12:01 AM PT in 12 countries; the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore and China. The new iPhones officially launch on the 25th.
