    • Let’s not believe in this article, and ponder on the facts we have. Comparing it with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus release date, these two iPhones went on sale in US on 18th Sept, and pre-booking started here in India somewhere near 10th of Oct. By Oct 17 we had the smartphones in our hand. Now, do the same with the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, releasing on 25th Sept in the US, pre-booking in India somewhere near 12 or 13 Oct, release – Oct 25, 26, 27.

      • Hi Tajinder,

        Yes, iPhone 6S Plus is bigger in size. No, it’ll not bend. Yes, it’ll easily fit in the pockets.

      • Also, they now have an Aluminum 7000 Series alloy taking a force of 80 lbs just to bend the shell. Not gonna happen in our pockets at least. Yeah, it is a little thicker with an increase of 0.2 mm, not a big difference.

  1. Faizan, interesting article and thanks for writing it up. I think this is the first article that clearly says the expected date of Oct 27. Is this date confirmed or tentative? Also, the price of 53.5K seems too low. I read in a different site that it is at 65K.

    I am thinking 65K is more reasonable since the price in US starts at $649 (i.e ~ Rs. 43K) and the Indian price is usually ~20K more. Also, do you know if shoppers have to pay taxes on 53k?

    • I too realised that it is hard to pay ,actually price of iPhone 6s is $649 USD at around 43k.i mean 10k more we have to pay for it////

    • Hey Prasad,

      The model price at 65K is going to be with the 64GB iPhone 6S, where you can have the 6S Plus starting at 67K.

  2. Crecy?
    But I am not seeing anything attractive.
    3D phone has already lunched by LG 3/4 years back.
    12MP camera is available almost with every phone.
    4K display – that also is available with other phones even in China made Phones.
    then ?
    Only Apple LOGO .
    If you want to spend 65000 only for that – go ahead.
    I will purchase your phone after one year with half price.

    • Mayb u r hearing about I phone for the first time. If you had ever used an i phone, u wouldn’t have left this comment.

    • its nt 3d its 3d multi touch
      its i sight 12 mp
      its hd 4k not only 4k
      half price buy some sense for u brain
      thaxz in aadvance

    • first buy one iPhone 4s which is the lower-end iPhone model available use it for a week then you will know what apple is and don’t compare apple to some shit android china made phones, remember if you can’t afford to buy iPhone don’t come here and comment. go and buy some plastic china made of android.

    • It’s not about mega pixels of camera or resolution of display or whatever u have written here.
      Mega pixels in camera is not everything u need to take excellent photos. Pixel resolution of display is not every thing if u wanna have an excellent display.
      There r so many other technical features & innovations that u or me would never know about apple. It’s their trade secret.
      It’s about the smoothness of OS; I’ve been an android fan for years ( M8, S6; now I6) but after using an Iphone I must say that there is always a sense of difficulty while using an android phone & this sense of difficulty is not there with Iphone.
      Practically It makes a huge difference in performance when Iphone gives u hardware as well as software platform i.e. OS of its own.
      While samsung, sony, htc etc. they all have to be dependent on google os.
      Although they have their own user interface but it does not help much.
      That’s why samsung is working really hard on its own OS called Tizen.
      Practically Iphone is the best.

    • Ur right vth ur comments. ..Bt u cnt compare apple with Lg i guess..If u satisfied with lg Vy u goin for a second hand apple then… u shuldnt forget that apple has its own stand in market …

    • hay Mitra u dumb fellow!!!!!!!!!! i think u r very much illiterate that u know nothing about the apple i phones….. dude dese r all real new generation smartphones and its not lyk d apple fruit Ur thinking about….. don’t go by price get some sleep and check in the Wikipedia about the apple products ul get to know!!!!

  3. Hi mitra this is ref to your response. Ur a smart guy but satisfaction > it. A new launched phone is like a new wife she might not look that beautiful after a year n u still wana grab it than too sm1 has …nothing personal… n all d qualities of other women cannot be used until u have ur name tag with is d connection of brand.. lol… so is iphone & n its crazy fans…..(*_*).

  4. I don’t think apple will push the launch date till end of Oct, we are in the top 3 smartphone market in the world.
    And after the keynote, developer reviews say the phone has only 1 gig of RAM and not 2.
    Yes, the price will be what the iPhone 6 has been launched past year which is 56k.
    People who complain about the cost, think yourself why iPhone 6’s 8MP camera was the best smartphone camera in the past year, even though there were 20.7MP camera phones (even I own that dumb 20.7MP camera on Sony Z2)

  5. I am pretty sure about iPhone 6s would be launching in India on 11th Oct with 16gb for 54500, 64gb 63500, 128gb 72500

    • 25th Sept. – US/Europe/Aus/Singapore and few others, and Indian market will have at least a ten day streak for the pre-orders, Not gonna happen.

  6. Yr koi yhe batuo ki mene i phone 6 lena but confusion ho rhi hai 6 lu yha 6s samjh nhi aaya rha kyu6s full touch hai
    Plz help me confusion dur karo meri

  7. First it totally depends on how much money you want to shell out. If you own an iPhone 5S or earlier, there are some big reasons such as 3D Touch, 12MP camera and few others to upgrade. However, if you are comfortable with a little lower specs of the iPhone 6 which currently sells at 42,000 to 43,000 INR on the FlipKart and Amazon, go there and buy it. Just to mention, 3D Touch isn’t really that big upgrade and it will be even more efficient with the iPhone 7 in the year 2016.

  8. i asked to apple india chat support n they told the iPhone 6S launching on 30th September n iPad Pro is on November in India

  9. You guys must be either:

    1) kidding OR
    2) paid marketers for apple OR
    3) just plain morons

    Who in 2015 in his/her right mind pay 50-60K for the new iphones which are anything but revolutionary ?

    • Hey, idiot-Buster!

      You must be:
      1. that Chinese Android Guy.
      2. Apple-hater breed
      3. or still whining about not having an iPhone.

      Sorry about the three points, but apparently it’s not about the amount you spend on the iPhone. Apple products are some of the best products whose once you got hold, it is hard to leave. I suggest you to go to an Apple Store, use the products there, and then ‘Edit’ your comment. Just that easy, I have seen people commenting on such articles.

      Also, when I am supporting the Apple, Android smartphones aren’t any behind either. It’s only about how much money you want to shell out for a smartphone/phone. The year 2015, Samsung also announced it’s 54K smartphone, so better you brush up some skills and then comment. Go around, we have hundreds of articles waiting for you.

      Good Luck!

  10. Is se toh behtor htc ka he mai htc one e9 plus liya he 20 mp rear cmra 13 ultra pixel face cmra 3 GB ram 2Ghz 32 GB phone memory price bhi kom 34556 abhi 30250 he …..

  11. i m waiting for iphone 6s but damme confuse in color i m student……… kindly suggest me color to buy

  12. Half Knowledge writer giving wrong info. There is no 8GB version of iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. iPhone 6s is Non-removable Li-Po 1715 mAh battery (6.9 Wh) and iPhone 6s plus is Non-removable Li-Po 2915 mAh battery (11.1 Wh)

  13. Hoping that the indian rupee will get stronger till mid october so we do not have to pay so much more than the people in the U.S

  14. Eagerly waiting to possess the new iPhone 6s. I am currently using iPhone 6 but i won’t miss the new iPhone as it has rightly said that the one only thing that has changed is EVERYTHING.

  15. i m waiting for iphone 6s but confuse in color i m chartered accountant …… kindly suggest me color to buy
    Reply plz.

  16. Hi, i ordered contract free 6s phone from usa, under T mobile network but its contract free , will it work in india on vodafone sim?

  17. i love iphone plz release fast……………… i am waiting……………………. for iphone 6s plus

  18. Is it better to buy the 6s or the 6 in terms of battery life? I’ve read many reviews about the 6s being faster and the additional features than the 6.

  19. Right now its clearly mentioned on the apple India website that the 6s and 6s Plus will be in stores on 16/10.

  20. how it could be possible if iPhone 6 have MRP of 52000 for 16GB variant anb people assuming 6S for 56000.This is not happening the iPhone 6S 16GB variant nearly cost to 61 or 62 Thousands because in previous models apple maintains a difference of 9000 INR.

  21. The expected price for apple i6s and i6s plus is the same as the launch price of its predecessors.
    I guess buying it from grey market is actually a crime as you are paying a higher price and paying no texas to indian govt as well.

    Well if you want iphone 6s and 6s plus wait till 1st week of November so as to get it without any extra money or simply go for it when its available.

    And please dun leave shit comments as you already know apple is just a brand name which in their community proves the apple holders a premium segment members whith a half bitten apple so called show-off symbol.
