UK pricing for the iPhone 6s duo, iPad Pro and Apple TV
Apple announced a bunch of new products today, including the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, new Apple Watch finishes and bands, a monster iPad Pro, and a revamped Apple TV with Siri, universal search and games. Whether you’re interested in some, or all of the company’s new wares, we’ve got all available UK pricing right here.
iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
As expected, Apple has two new smartphones to replace the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Keeping with tradition, they’re iterative “s” updates that keep the same design and revamp the internals. They’ll be available in silver, gold, space grey, and a new rose gold colour scheme, with a new 64-bit A9 processor nestled inside. In addition to iOS 9, they’ll also support “3D Touch,” which is a pressure sensitive feature similar to Force Touch on the Apple Watch. With a slightly firmer press, you can “peek” and “pop” additional options.
|16GB||64GB||128GB||Pre-order date||Release date|
|iPhone 6s||£539||£619||£699||September 12th||September 25th|
|iPhone 6s Plus||£619||£699||£789||September 12th||September 25th|
As you’d expect, the price of Apple’s previous iPhone models have been knocked down a peg or two to make way for the new flagships. The dinky iPhone 5s now starts at £379, while the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are available from £459 and £539, respectively.
iPad Pro and mini 4
With the iPad Pro, Apple is embracing the tablet’s potential as a laptop killer. The 12.9-inch display makes it easier to run apps side-by-side in iOS 9, and under the hood Apple claims its new A9X processor is beefy enough to handle demanding tasks like photo and video-editing. Similar to Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3, it also supports new Smart Keyboard and Pencil accessories, meaning you don’t have to spend all day poking the display with your fingers. Unfortunately, Apple hasn’t given any firm details about pricing — the tablet and accessories hit store shelves in November, so expect more information closer to release.
If you just want an iPad for streaming Netflix in bed, you might want to opt for Apple’s iPad mini 4 instead, which comes with the same A8X processor found in the iPad Air 2. Finally, the iPad mini 2 has been reduced, making it the cheapest slate in Apple’s lineup.

For years, it’s been rumoured that Apple was working on a major new product to disrupt the TV industry. The Apple TV unveiled today isn’t quite that, but it does give the company’s set-top box a much-needed refresh. It has universal search, meaning you can quickly find which, if any of your apps have a particular film or TV show, and a new remote which offers both a trackpad and Siri-powered voice commands. The device also runs on a new software platform called tvOS and will support Apple’s internet TV subscription service when it launches next year. The new Apple TV will be available in the UK at the end of October, and like the iPad Pro, Apple is keeping quiet about the pricing for now.
