iPhone 4 price drops with iPhone 4S release

Here are the prices for Apple’s new iPhone, the iPhone 4S. Prices of the cheaper iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 are included for comparison. Most iPhone 4S prices quoted in the article are for an unlocked iPhone 4S, while some iPhone 4S plan prices are included.

With release of the latest iPhone, the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS prices have dropped, making owning an iPhone more affordable.

This article does not include used iPhone prices, so no iPhone 3G prices are provided.

The table below compares prices for the Apple iPhone 4S range. The iPhone 4G, iPhone 4GS and iPhone 5 have not been released yet. When these iPhone models are released, I’ll add their prices.

How iPhone Color & Capacity Affect the Price

iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS Prices

The iPhone 4S models are available in black and white. Does the iPhone’s color effect the price? No. Unlike the iPhone 4, there’s no difference in price of a black iPhone 4S or white iPhone 4S.

The iPhone4S is available in three storage capacities. Larger capacities have higher prices:

  • iPhone 4S 16 GB
  • iPhone 4S 32 GB
  • iPhone 4S 64 GB

iPhone 4 Price Falls

With the release of the new iPhone, Apple have dropped the price of the previous models. Apple still sells new iPhone 3GS (the “cheapest iPhone”) and iPhone4 (now the cheap iphone”) models.

The iPhone 4 price and iPhone3GS price are included in the iPhone price list above, as they’re a affordable alternative to the iPhone 4S.

Unlocked iPhone Prices

The prices quoted in this article are generally for unlocked iPhones. An unlocked iPhone comes without a SIM, and you can get a prepaid SIM or an account (postpaid) with any cellphone carrier.

You may have noticed that the iPhone prices for the U.S. are much lower than other countries. That’s because right now in America, you can only get an iPhone on a plan with AT & T, Verizon or Sprint. (At least there’s choices besides AT&T, unlike in the past.)

An iPhone plan makes the iPhone’s upfront cost cheaper. The prices quoted here are for the U.S. are on a phone plan or contract, and the prices for the other countries are for unlocked iPhones.

In the U.S., you will be able to buy unlocked iPhone 4S models in November. An unlocked iPhone will be more expensive up front, but you will be able to use it with any cell phone provider, and you won’t need to commit to monthly payments for a fixed period.

When travelling overseas, an unlocked iPhone can be used with a local mobile phone provider’s prepaid SIMs to avoid global roaming charges. This makes for cheaper phone calls.

iPhone Plan Prices

You can already sign up for an iPhone 4S plan in many countries. iPhone plans in Australia, for example, are available at $48 per month on Virgin, $59 on Optus, $59 per month on Vodafone, and $79 a month on Telstra.

It’s worth checking online for iPhone deals. In the past, some mobile phone carriers have had Internet specials.

iPhone 4GS Release Date

The iPhone 4S hasn’t been released in all countries yet, so I can’t get the iPhone 4S price for these countries yet. In most of the countries with iPhone prices listed here, the iPhone 4GS will be released on 28 October. The exception to this is New Zealand, which has no release date shown at the Apple Store. Perhaps they’re all watching the Rugby World Cup?
