The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are now available to preorder from Apple’s Online Store and participating carriers in the twelve launch countries, priced from $199 through $499 on a typical 2 year contract. Last year, Apple sold ten million phones in opening weekend numbers and analysts expect similar results this time. Until the phones go out of stock, preorders made today should deliver on the 25th September when the phones officially go on sale. There haven’t been any rumors of limited stock availability but we’ll keep you posted …


Pricing for the new phones is the same as last year. For $199, you can get a brand new 16 GB iPhone 6s with a $299 64 GB and $399 128 GB storage upgrade option on contract. The larger 5.5 inch iPhone 6s Plus (which is almost identical internally to the iPhone 6s) is $100 at every price tier: $299 for 16 GB iPhone 6s Plus maxing out at $499 for the 128 GB variety. Carriers are offering many types of new phone plans this year, including Apple, so check out our comparison chart to find the best deal.

The iPhone 6s features 3D Touch, pressure sensitive multitouch for things like quick app shortcuts and previewing content, an upgraded 12-megapixel rear camera, 4K video recording, a 5 megapixel front camera.
