There are going to be plenty of ways to buy the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The phones will be sold with two-year contracts starting at $199 and $299 with 16GB of storage, respectively (though you shouldn’t buy that storage option). Apple will also sell the devices through a payment plan that guarantees upgrades and includes AppleCare+. But what about the carrier upgrade plans, like T-Mobile JUMP? We’re starting to learn more about those pricing models, too.
In T-Mobile’s “Lifetime Coverage Guarantee” announcement on Thursday, the carrier’s small print provided some information on monthly pricing for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s. The, presumably, entry level model 16GB iPhone 6s will cost $0 down with $20 month in payments for 18 months. The iPhone 6s Plus will cost $0 down with $24 monthly payments. “Device must be returned in good condition or paid off to keep it at lease end,” T-Mobile said. Gizmodo notes the iPhone 6s will require an additional $164 to keep it.
That pricing actually appears to be cheaper than T-Mobile’s iPhone 6 prices. The 16GB iPhone 6 is currently available for $0 down with 24 monthly payments of $27.08. It’s also cheaper than Apple’s monthly offering, but doesn’t include the AppleCare+ coverage.
We’ll let you know when we receive information on pricing from other carriers, too.
