Apple officially announced iPhone 6 Plus on Tuesday, the iPhone 6 with 5.5-inch display, which come in gold, silver, and space gray. iPhone 6 Plus have a new body design with rounded edges, instead of the straight edges on the iPhone 5S.
The 5.5-inch screen iPhone 6 Plus is by far the largest phone Apple has created, dwarfing the iPhone 5S’s 4-inch diagonal screen. It comes after recent leaks showing purported components for a 5.5-inch screen device, and years of rumors indicating Apple was making larger-screened phones.
The iPhone 6 Plus starts at US $299 for a 16 GB model, $399 for a 64 GB model, and $499 for an all-new 128 GB model, the largest storage yet on an iPhone.
Pre-orders for iPhone 6 Plus begin this Friday, September 12th and in-store sales and shipments start one week later on Friday, September 19th, in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, and Singapore. In the US, both phones will be available in online, in Apple Stores, and through all major carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile). Apple says both phones will expand to 115 total countries by the end of the year.
