As the month of August gradually draws to a close, iPhone fans across the globe are patiently waiting the launch of the next iteration of the iPhone. While there has been no official confirmation from Apple itself regarding the launch date, the device dubbed the iPhone 6s is set to be launched on September 9, as per several trusted sources. The Inquisitr had earlier carried reports about the September 9 launch date of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. We had also posted a few concept images of what the new iPhone versions could look like.
In a fresh report by Forbes, the September 9 launch date of the new iPhone models have been once again reconfirmed. Also revealed is the fact that the pre-orders for the new iPhone would commence just two days after its formal announcement. Forbes has cited a French website, Mac4ever, which has managed to chance upon a screenshot from a popular French carrier which confirms that the new iPhone would go on pre-order starting September 11, 2015.
While the screenshot is from a French carrier website, it is highly likely that the pre-order dates for the iPhone 6s would be the same in the U.S. as well. France is among the tier one countries where iPhones are launched the same day as they are in the United States. Mac4Ever has kept the source of the information under wraps for obvious reasons.
Mac4Ever also revealed that normal sales of the new iPhone models will begin from September 18 in France (and presumably all other Tier 1 markets — including the U.S.)
As always, we would advise you to consider these reports as mere rumors. However, we might as well add that Mac4Ever has a good track record at posting highly-accurate Apple related rumors. In the past, the site has been known to leak several Apple internal news before they were made official by Apple.
As for the iPhone 6s, it is currently thought that the upgrade to the iPhone 6 would be incremental in nature with a better camera and a faster processor. The larger iPhone 6 Plus will also get a similar upgrade. What is interesting is the probability of either a smaller iPhone 6c model or an iPhone 6s with a larger display — but not larger than the iPhone 6s Plus.
Would you be buying the new iPhone variants even if they turn out to be just incremental feature upgrades to the existing models?
