iPhone 6 pre-order at AT&T, Verizon, or Apple?
The iPhone 6 is gearing up for pre-orders around the globe, and if you’re in the states you’ve got a choice between AT&T, Verizon or Apple at the moment. With that in mind, we’re going to take a quick look at each carrier and give you the lowdown on what to expect.
Pre-orders for the AT&T version of the iPhone 6 kick off online at 12:01 AM. At this time, they only have marketing material from Apple up, and there’s no mention of pricing on the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch models. You can sign up for more details, but that’s about it for AT&T.
On Verizon side of things, it isn’t much better as you’ll just get another sign-up box to learn more about the device. There is no pricing and no time set for the pre-orders. It’s surprising and a little disappointing coming from the #1 carrier in America. The same can be said for T-Mobile — not times or dates are given aside from the 12th.
On Apple’s official site, we’re still looking at the 12th for pre-orders, but you can walk into an Apple retail store on the 19th to pick on up as long as they have them in stock and you don’t mind waiting. Pricing for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 starts at $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 64GB and $399 for the 128GB model. The iPhone 6 Plus will sell for $299 in the 16GB configuration, $399 for the 64GB model and $499 for the 128GB version. All prices are with a 2-year service agreement with Verizon, AT&T or Sprint.
While we don’t know the carrier discounts yet, we should learn more soon, and if you want an unlocked iPhone 6, Apple has T-Mob listed for those. The iPhone 6 Plus price starts ranges from $749 to $949 unlocked while the 4.7-inch model goes for $649 to $849. You can except other carriers to have the iPhone 6 as well one things kick off next week.
Do you think the bigger screens warrant high prices on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus?
