Those hoping to buy the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus will have to part with a lot of cash
Those looking to buy Apple’s latest iPhone will have to pay upwards of €700 if they wish to acquire the device outside of a network contract, according to prices on the tech company’s website.
A 16GB iPhone 6 – which comes with a 4.7″ screen – is listed at €699 on Apple’s online store. That rises to €799 for the 64GB version, and €899 for one packing 128GB of storage.
Meanwhile, an iPhone 6 Plus – which boasts a 5.5″ screen – will cost at least €799 out of contract, assuming 16GB is enough storage space for all your apps, music and photos. An extra €100 will get you the 64GB version, while those wanting big storage to go with their big screen will have to spend €999.
While prices are available for Irish users, exact details of the phones’ release date is not. The Apple site says the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be “available to order on 26 September”, though it is unclear how quickly devices will be shipped after that.
For those looking to get the device at a lower upfront cost, there is still the option of buying one through a mobile network.
The trade-off there, of course, is that they’ll have to sign up to a 18 or 24-month contract in order to get the device at a discount and exact details of the various network’s packages are not yet know.
All of the main networks are asking potential iPhone 6 buyers to register their interest, saying they’ll send on launch details once they’re available. The links to those pages are:
