iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 can be bought at Best Buy with impressive discounts, summing up to $160. The prices are lowered in anticipation of the release of new iPhone in September this year, after which the current owners of iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 are expected to rush retailers en masse in order to get the new device.

According to International Business Times, BestBuy offers a flat discount not only on the current Apple's flagship phones, but on the older models as well.

"The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are now available through leading carriers like AT&T, Verizon and Sprint with a new deal. It allows users to avail the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus with a discount of $50, a charger worth $40 for free and certain plans offers an extra $70 credits. On Best Buy, the aforementioned deal is also available on older iPhones like the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C."

For those less eager to always have the latest toy at their disposal, it is yet another proof that it is a good idea to wait for at least half a year before buying the new Apple's must have.

For some time, there was even a rumor that Apple was going to release both an upgraded version of their last year's flagship smartphone, 6S, and a totally new iPhone 7 both during 2015. It seems, however, that the company is going to stick to their traditional strategy of releasing an upgraded version in the year following its original release and put the next generation off to the next year. Otherwise, even die-hard Apple fans would probably start having second thoughts about buying both devices.

6S is rumored to sport a number of interesting features, from Force Touch technology, making it capable of distinguishing between light taps and harder pressing, to a brand new camera, according to the Inquisitr.

"Apple design uses light splitting techniques similar to Canon, Panasonic, and Philips do with their digital cameras. This news should cheer up Apple fans who found out that the next iPhone may not have better battery life."
