New Apple iPhones And iPads: Australian Pricing And Release Dates

Apple has wrapped up its big event to announce a swathe of new products including the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s, iPad Pro and iPad Mini 4. Our sister publication, Gizmodo Australia, was on the ground in the US to cover the event and has provided information on the Australian availability and pricing for the four new devices. We’ve consolidated the information into a nice little package for you here.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus

The iPhone 6s is a 4.7-inch smartphone with Retina display and uses the Apple A9 Processor and a whole bunch of goodies. The iPhone 6s is more or less the same phone except it has a 5.5-inch display instead. You can read up on the devices over at our Apple event roundup.

Here is the outright pricing for both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Models start at 16GB but it’s not really worth getting that version. Let’s face it, there’s a 16GB phone with no expandable memory is pretty useless in this day in age.

Nonetheless, if you don’t mind being restricted on how much content and software you can load up on your device, then go for it. We’ve broken down the pricing for all models below.

The new iPhones will be available for pre-order on Saturday 12 September and go on sale on 25 September.

Size iPhone 6s iPhone 6s Plus
16GB $1079 $1229
64GB $1299 $1379
128GB $1379 $1529

iPad Pro

The 12.9-inch tablet with retina display is so big you can use a full-sized onscreen keyboard. The iPad Pro screen has more pixels than the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. It runs a new A9x processor that is 1.8 times faster than the A8X and, according to Apple, is faster than 80 per cent of other portable PCs.

There is no pricing for the iPad Pro just yet. It will be shipping in Australia in November.

iPad Mini 4

This is essentially a shrunk down version of the iPad Air 2 and features a 7.9-inch screen. iPad Mini 4 ships today.

Size iPad Mini 4 (WiFi) iPad Mini 4 (WiFi + Cellular)
16GB $569 $729
64GB $699 $859
128GB $829 $989

Now we just have to wait for the major telcos to tell us how much the new Apple devices will cost on their mobile plans. Stay tuned!
