As usual with what follows all tech gadget launch events – Apple or otherwise – there’s a lot of headscratching once the Australian pricing is announced.
US iPhone fans were presented this morning with an incredible entry point price for both the new iPhones – $US199 and $US299 for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus respectively, on a two-year contract.
That’s for the basic model (and you’ll probably be handing over another $50 for a case). In Australia, that entry point price soars to – wait for it – $869 and $999 when it lobs on September 19. But keep in mind Apple didn’t release a contract-free price in the US, and you can obviously expect to pay less for a networked phone here too.
There’s no 32GB models, so the 4.7″ iPhone 6 will set you back as follows:
16GB – $869
64GB – $999
128GB – $1129
Or, if you prefer to look at it in terms of storage value, that’s $54, $15 and $8.80 per GB respectively.
For the 5.5″ iPhone 6 Plus:
16GB – $999 ($62 per GB)
64GB – $1129 ($17)
128GB – $1249 ($9.75)
