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

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!


    It runs a new A9x processor that is 1.8 times faster than the A8X and, according to Apple, is 80 per cent faster than other portable PCs.

    What the keynote actually said was that it is faster than 80% of portable PCs sold in the last year.

      My bad! I thought I had typed that, but I did also think that it was Wednesday today...

      All fixed now!

      And more expensive as well. You can get a Mac Book Air for the price of an iPhone! Isn't it ridiculous?

    The 64gb 6s+ seem a lot cheap compared to the rest. its only $80 more expensive compared to the 64gb 6s.
    The other 6s+ models are about 200 dearer than their smaller screened versions

      The article is incorrect, it is $1,229.00 vs $1,379.00.

    I just had to check the invoice for my iPhone 6 (128GB) and I paid $1129 last September
    The 6S costs 23% more than the iPhone 6 on release o.O

      The Aussie $ was much stronger 12 months ago

    Shattered they aren't offering i6 in 128GB anymore. What a f**cking joke. Looks like I'm stuck with Android.

    Why does Apple insist on keeping 16GB devices, and not having 32GB versions. My original 16GB iPad Mini is not big enough. If I install a couple of large apps, it's mostly full. I would have bought a 32gb iPad Mini but it was updated (and pushed out of my price range) so quickly.

    In my opinion, scrap the 16gb versions and replace them with 32gb. No idea why they didn't do that in the first place.

      Its Apples attempt to force people to buy the 64gb version instead of a 32g version, since each device probably only costs them $200 they can produce a small amount of 16gbs for the sadomasochists out there, and those that would buy a 32gb have to pay apples over inflated prices for storage in the end Apple earns more.

      Its their version of the old offer a bad product at high prices and a better one for only a little more, makes the more expensive version not look so bad. Except in this case all their products look overpriced.
