iPhone 6S release date, price, specs and new features: 25 September confirmed

Chris Martin | July 31, 2015
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are going strong but what will Apple bring to the table this year? Here's what we know about the iPhone 6S (or iPhone 7) release date, price, specs and new features.

More likely is a reversible USB connector. We already have the Lightning connector which can be plugged in either way round so we'd put money on Apple doing it at the other end of the cable, too. Also highly possible, practically a given, is that the iPhone 6S will come pre-loaded with iOS 9 which will probably be detailed at Apple's WWDC which normally takes place in June.

There's also a rumour suggesting that Apple may decide to use the same series 7000 aluminium that they use for the Apple Watch with the iPhone 6S. The Series 7000 aluminium is 60 percent stronger than standard aluminium, but keeps its lightweight form factor making it a great candidate for the iPhone 6S.

NFC will once again be present but with an upgraded chip. It's unclear what this will mean for the iPhone 6S but it looks like it might add a secure element processor, removing the need for a separate chip.

One final rumour suggests that the iPhone 6S might be available in a rose gold colour in addition to the silver, gold and space grey, to match the rose gold Apple Watch Edition. Below is a concept image of a rose gold iPhone 6S by designer Martin Hajek.

This matches up nicely with what Kuo's information who also says the iPhone will have larger screen and a slightly bigger body - 0.2mm thicker and 0.15mm taller.

iPhone 6S rumours: Did you mean Samsung Galaxy S6?

Google iPhone 6S and you'll come across a sneaky little jibe from Samsung, which is known for taking stabs at Apple through its marketing. A search for 'iPhone 6S' will produce an ad at the very top of Google that reads "Awkard, you obviously mean S6," linking to none other than Samsung.

Alternative results include "We think you mean S6," and "The S6 goes all the way to the edge without bending."

iPhone 6S price: How much will the iPhone 6S cost in the UK?

We don't have any solid clues that point to the iPhone 6S's price in the UK yet, but we expect that it'll be similar to the price of the current iPhone models.

The iPhone 6 starts at £539, while the iPhone 6 Plus starts at £619.
