iPhone 6S Plus ip6sp

The fact that Apple is still selling the iPhone 6s, a two-year-old phone, is a testament of how good the iPhone 6s is.

Usually, Apple only offers the previous-generation iPhone when it announces a new model. 

But if you compare the specs of the iPhone 8 or iPhone X on Apple’s website, you’ll notice that the phones look pretty similar. You’ll be telling yourself: “Yep, the iPhone 6s has this, and that, and that.” 

The main differences are the chips that dictate performance and certain features, as well as a few incremental improvements to things like the display and camera. These are hugely important factors when deciding which iPhone to buy, but the iPhone 6s is still a top contender, especially for its new price starting at $450.

Here’s why you should consider buying the iPhone 6s instead of the iPhone 8:

The iPhone 6s phones are more affordable.

It should go without saying that Apple’s older iPhones are going to be cheaper than their new ones.

Here’s what the new iPhones cost:

– iPhone 8 with 64GB of storage: $700

– iPhone 8 Plus with 64GB of storage: $800

– iPhone X with 64GB of storage: $1,000

To compare, Apple is still selling the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus for significantly less than the new iPhones:

– iPhone 6s with 32GB of storage: $450

– iPhone 6s Plus with 32GB of storage: $550

You can even get refurbished models of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus straight from Apple for an even better deal:

– Refurbished iPhone 6s with 64GB os storage: $430

– Refurbished iPhone 6s Plus with 64GB of storage: $510

The iPhone 6s phones come in a color that’s not available on the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.

The new iPhone 8 phones only come in silver, gold, and space gray. The new iPhone X only comes in silver and space gray.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus come in silver, gold, space gray, as well as rose gold. You can’t get an iPhone 8 or iPhone X in rose gold.

The iPhone 6s phones look nearly identical to the new iPhone 8.

If you value design above everything else, the iPhone X would be the iPhone of choice. It’s the freshest iPhone design since the iPhone 6 was released in 2014, and it looks downright gorgeous. But the iPhone 6s has an excellent design — and you’ll find comfort in knowing that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus look nearly identical to the new iPhone 8 models. Both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 8 have the same bezels around the display, same overall shape, and their screens are the same size and same resolution.
