The iPhone 6 Plus is still one of the best big screen smartphones around but rumors say that its time as Apple’s flagship is nearly over. iPhone 6s rumors continue to point to the arrival of an iPhone 6s Plus and today, we take a look at what prospective iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus buyers need to know as we push deeper into the summer.
In the months leading up to last year’s iPhone launch, we saw rumors point to two new iPhone 6 models. Apple confirmed many of those rumors when it took the stage in September to announce the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the much larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.
For nearly a year, those two phones have ruled as two of the best smartphones around. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 the all-around device aimed at everyone and the iPhone 6 Plus the big screen device that presents a solid alternative to devices like the Nexus 6 and Galaxy Note 4.
Apple’s two iPhone 6 models have been extremely successful so its been no surprise to hear that the company is apparently cooking up two successors for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. iPhone 6s rumors have finally started to get specific and they point a huge iPhone 6s release later this year.
These rumors have put smartphone shoppers in an awkward position. The iPhone 6 Plus is an extremely tempting phone but it’s clear that an iPhone 6s Plus is on the way. While we can’t make up your mind for you, we can help push you to one side of the fence or the other in the buildup to Apple’s inevitable announcement.
Today, we want to take a look at the most important things you should know about how the iPhone 6s Plus is currently stacking up against the iPhone 6 Plus. Nothing is confirmed but thanks to a collection of credible rumors from believable sources, we can start to shape your expectations moving forward.
iPhone 6s Plus Release Date Getting Closer
If you're struggling with the decision to buy the iPhone 6 Plus now or wait for the iPhone 6s Plus, know that you probably don't have too much longer to wait for Tim Cook and company to announce their brand new products.
Over the past few weeks, we've started to see the iPhone 6s Plus release shape up. Multiple outlets have confirmed Apple's plan to release at least two new iPhone models and if rumors are accurate, it will release them at the same time.
We haven't seen an exact date emerge just yet but it's clear that the wheels are in motion. A recent report from The Wall Street Journal states that Apple is asking its supplies to prepare for an absolutely massive iPhone 6s release in 2015.
We also know that Apple's set the iOS 9 release date for the fall. iOS software always arrives alongside new iPhone hardware so there's reason to believe that we'll see both the iOS 9 release and an iPhone 6s Plus release take place in and around September 23rd, the start of fall.
In the grand scheme of things, a few weeks isn't a long wait. iPhones only come once a year so even if the iPhone 6 Plus seems tempting. we recommend waiting at least until iPhone 6s Plus rumors are able to all but confirm a few more things.
