On European shores, the new 4.7 incher should cost €699 in an entry-level 16GB configuration, while the iPhone 6s Plus is rumored to start at €799.
Although Apple’s list of speculated improvements for the fall 2015 generation of the dominant iPhone is almost unexpectedly hefty, a price hike compared to the 6 and 6 Plus seems out of the question. Of course, Cupertino loves its profit margins too much to shave even a couple of bucks off them, so we’re guessing this is a simple matter of technology moving forward and production costs staying at the same level.
Otherwise put, a 12 MP camera might be as cheap to incorporate into an iPhone 6s today as an 8 megapixel snapper was back in 2014, and the A9 chip probably warrants similar expenses as the A8 before it.
Or perhaps Apple can’t afford to charge more after Samsung’s glitzy Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 announcements, and per unit gains will indeed shrink. Either way, we’re happy to report a reputable source claims the iPhone 6s will be priced at €699, €799 and €899 on the old continent in 16, 64 and 128GB variants respectively.
Yes, this is further confirmation 16 gigs of storage space are still on the table, and suggests a $650 – $750 – $850 pricing scheme stateside. In space grey, silver and gold flavors only, mind you, so the rose gold color remains up in the air.
Meanwhile, the larger 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6s Plus should command rates of €799, €899 and €999 in Europe with 16, 64 and 128GB ROMs, and $750, $850 and $950 in the US of A. The paint jobs are the same as tipped for the “standard” iPhone 6s, and a lower-end, lower-cost iPhone 6c is less and less likely to break cover on September 9 by the day. Maybe next year, cash-strapped iFans…
