Applecare harringtonwired Applecareharringtonwired You’re reading Apple News breathless, right? While we’re so excited about the new iPhones, especially the 6S and 7S, we have a few more questions: when will they be available in the US? When can I buy them? How much do they cost? Let’s take a look at all of these and more. Keep reading for everything you ever wanted to know about your favorite smartphone.
The 6S and 7S are here
When did Apple make the decision to move to the 6S and 7S? We’re still trying to believe it, but we can definitely see the signs. It skidded the sales charts for the 5S and 6S, and the only other iPhone ever to ship with a 5S design was the iPhone 7. But the 6S was actually one of the most hyped phones of all time, thanks in large part to the amazing marketing effort of Apple’s former chief strategy departments.
Can you buy an Apple Watch in the US?
Define “in the US”. You can buy an Apple Watch in the US starting at $349 with a 40-credit limit. You can also buy the watch in a gift box for $100.
Will you be able to buy an iPhone 6S or 7S in the US?
Yes. The last two iPhones in the US — the 6S and 7S — are available exclusively through Newegg.com.
Which iPhone will be available in Canada?
We don’t know yet. The last three iPhones in Canada — the 5S, 6S, and 7S — are available exclusively through the Apple Store.
Which watchband will be available under the $50 umbrella?
We don’t know yet. We’re still waiting for the first wave of Apple Watch bands to come out.
The Bottom Line
The 6S and 7S are here, and we’re now officially in the year of the device. Here’s what we know: the 7S is coming, and it’s the most expensive phone on the market, at $799. The 6S was great, but the 7S is better, and at a higher price. If you’re in the market for a new phone, the 6S is great, but not good enough for the 7S. The 7S offers better camera and front-facing speakers, as well as a better screen, and comes with an edge-folding screen cover. The only reason the 6S is better is simply because it’s the one that ships with iOS 11. The 6S and 7S are here, and we’re ready for them. What’s really interesting about the 7S is that it uses a custom 13nm instance of the CPU found on the iPhone XS and Pro, which means it has no ARM or CPUv8-based CPUs on hand. But the phone still runs the latest and greatest version of iOS, and it comes with the ability to use Bluetooth Low Energy, which means there’s no moreetting up on your phone’s battery. The 7S should be available in the US in February or March, followed by availability in the rest of the world in June or July.
The new 5S, 6S, and 7S models
What is the new 5S, 6S, and 7S model? Well, when is the new 5S, 6S, and 7S model going to be available in the US? When is the last time we’ve seen a new phone arrive with a 5S or 6S model? We don’t know, but it seems like it will be at some point in the near future.
Can you get an Apple Watch for free on your phone?
Yes, you can now buy an Apple Watch for $129, which is about $80 less than the price of a phone.
When can I buy an iPhone 6S or 7S in the US?
When can you buy an iPhone 6S or 7S in the US? We’re still waiting for the new model to start shipping, but we’re told it will most likely be in the Spring or Fall of this year.
