Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is all set to launch on the midnight of October 16, in India.

The new iPhones are exorbitantly priced starting at Rs 62,000 for the 16GB version and going up to Rs 92,000 for the 128GB variant of the iPhone 6s Plus.

If you have not pre-booked the iPhone 6s or the 6s Plus, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to get one today given the huge number of people who are in the queue.

But the upgrades do not make the iPhone 6 redundant. In fact you get iOS 9 features on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as well.

Who Should Buy it?

If you are a first time iPhone buyer and have that kind of money to splurge, go ahead. The new features that it comes with are more usable than Siri, at least in India. For people upgrading from iPhone 4s or iPhone 5 and 5s, it makes complete sense.

You also miss out on some little features on the iOS 9 if you buy the iPhone 6 over the iPhone 6s.

But if you are looking for an upgrade from the iPhone 6 it’s a tough choice to make. iPhone 6 is not even a year old and Apple is already throwing the 6s at you!

However, if you have an iPhone fetish I’m sure you will upgrade even if you bought the iPhone 6 a month back.

But the wise thing to do for people who are using the iPhone 6 right now, is to wait for a few more months and get the next iPhone in 2016. I can bet that it will be a better looker.
