The pre-orders for the handsets will start on September 25, the same day the new iPhones hit the retail stores of United States, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Singapore, Hong Kong, and more. Compared to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple will be pricing the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus at a €50 premium. The 16GB iPhone 6s will be available for €749, while the 16GB iPhone 6s Plus will retail for €849. For every jump in storage tier, there is a €100 increase in price for both handsets.
Another report from The Economic Times claims that Apple is planning on launching the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in India earlier this year. Over the last few years, Apple has released the new iPhones in India around the Diwali festive season, but this time around, the company is planning on launching the handset sometime around October 10 this year. Apple has been posting steady growth in the sale of iPhones in India over the last few quarters, and with the European and US smartphone market saturating, the Indian smartphone market offers the company a chance to sustain the incredible growth in iPhone sales.
It is likely that Apple will bring the new iPhones to a few other countries in the second launch wave in October, as well.
At its ‘Hey Siri’ event earlier this month, Apple had revealed that it plans to launch the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to more than 130 countries and over 200 carriers by the end of this year.
