Where and When You Can Buy the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus

By Tom Pritchard on at

Earlier this evening Apple announced its brand new smartphones, the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus. We've seen all the new features and hardware that the phones have to offer, so now it's time to start thinking with your wallet and find out how much an upgrade is going to cost you.

The iPhone 6S is set to go up for pre-order on September 12th, and will be available from a number of online and high street retailers. But which one should you be going to for your new iPhone? Should you be sitting by the front door waiting for the postman to arrive, or should you brave the outside world and head down to a brick-and-mortar store? We've got the best deals for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus that have been announced so far, and we'll be updating the list as more become available. If you're in the market for the latest fruit-flavoured phone, you're sure to find something to your liking.
