The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S will available to buy in a month’s time, mounting evidence suggests. That’s a week or so after the launch date of September 9th that’s being mooted in some quarters.
Sources with German carriers reportedly revealed the retail date of the 18th to the Teutonic tech types at Macerkopf. The date is in line with a UK Vodafone memo that was leaked last month, as well as evidence unearthed by a Japanese site.
Given the pedigree of the news sources and the common date they mention, that all adds up to a pretty undeniable sign that the 18th is indeed D-Day for this year’s models.
Pre-orders are being tipped to go live on September 11th at 12pm. At which point, of course, you can pretty much guarantee they’ll be sold out with a matter of minutes and already attracting premium prices on auction sites.
What’s not clear is whether the cheaper, plastic iPhone 6C is also on the way. There’s certainly nothing like the same consensus among leaks and tech sites about the phone’s existence as there is about Apple's plans for its top-end models.
Some are adamant it’s going to land alongside the 6S and 6S Plus. Others reckon Apple scrapped the 6C on the grounds that it’s likely to eat into sales of the premium priced handsets.
