Apple has confirmed a launch event for 9 September, when the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are expected to debut. While more and more details about the new iPhones continue to emerge, the latest one is that the price of the iPhone 6S will be same as that of the iPhone 6, according to Dutch blog TechTastic.
The leaked price for the unannounced iPhones suggests Apple will release the 16GB variant alongside 64GB and 128GB, which means there's no 32GB as fans had expected.
The blog reveals the European pricing for the iPhone 6S and says the handset will be available in three colours - space gray, silver and gold - same as the current iPhone 6.
This may come as sheer disappointment to its fans who were expecting a rose gold variant. The report also contradicts a recent leak of an iPhone 6S dipped in a pink hue.
If the report is true, Apple will pour cold water on hopes of seeing a 32GB variant, forcing buyers to invest more on iCloud storage or pay extra cash to get the higher-storage model, and a new colour variant.
According to TechTastic, the 16GB iPhone 6S will be priced at €699 for 16GB, €799 for 64GB and €899 for the 128GB model. As for the bigger iPhone 6S Plus, the 16GB will retail at €799 while the 64GB and 128GB will cost €899, €999, respectively. All colours will be priced similarly.
According to Forbes, the European pricing translates into $649, $749 and $849 for the iPhone 6S 16GB, 64GB and 128GB, respectively. Similarly, the iPhone 6S Plus will sell for $749 for 16GB, $849 for 64GB and $949 for the high-end 128GB model.
We have heard a lot about the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S specifications, but the pricing leak wraps it up. In a round-up article of what to expect from the new iPhones, we mentioned the iPhone 6S to feature a similar design as the current iPhone 6 along with incremental upgrades such as Force Touch Display, stronger 7000-series aluminium build, upgraded 12-megapixel iSight camera with 4K video recording, A9 processor and final version of iOS 9.
