The iPhone 6S is now available to preorder

It’s been one whole year since the last iPhone launched, but its successors have finally arrived.

Apple has just sent the pre-order page live for the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

You can now pre-order either device in a range of colour and storage options, directly through Apple’s website.

At its September 9 launch event, Apple revealed pre-orders would begin on September 12, at 08:01 London time.

This Saturday sales opening is a first for Apple, a company that usually opts for weekday launches.

Both new iPhones will come in a variety of colours: silver, space grey, gold, and rose gold.

They’ll also ship in three storage options: 16GB, 32GB, and 128GB.

The iPhone 6S starts at a price of £539, while the iPhone 6S Plus is naturally more expensive, retailing at £619.

So what’s new about Apple’s latest iPhone line-up?

Perhaps the headline feature is 3D Touch, which lets users apply different levels of finger pressure to their iPhone screens for different gestures.

Apple also introduced a 12-megapixel camera to the series, which is an update from 8-megapixel sensor that appeared on the iPhone 6.

The new camera will also be capable of shooting 4K video, another first for Apple smartphones.

If you don’t want to pre-order the new phones and you’d rather just buy the handset outright on launch day, the official iPhone 6S release date is September 25.

Not convinced by the new iPhones but still want a new handset? There are plenty of rival offerings on the market, so why not take a look at our reviews for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, the LG G4, or the OnePlus 2.
