iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus release date: where can I get it?

Apple's finally done it and made bigger smartphone with NFC no less.

The iPhone 6 is Apple's first ever 4.7-inch device playing catch up with Android devices. Apple's has even stepped into the phablets space by introducing the iPhone 6 Plus with its 5.5-inch screen.

Of course screen size isn't the only thing Apple improved upon. The iPhone and iPhone 6 are some of thinnest devices yet measuring 6.9mm and 7.1mm thick, respectively.

The Cupertino company also added significant improvements to the iSight camera (both front and back) with features such as burst selfies, phase detection autofocus and optical image stabilization.

Apple promised pre-orders for its latest handset would begin on September 12 and multiple carriers followed suit, announcing the same release date. Here's where, when and for how much you can get the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Sprint

Sprint is so excited about the "best iPhone ever" it has announced a new "iPhone for Life" program. The deal lets users get their mitts on an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for a monthly $20 rate.

Customers enrolled in the iPhone for Life program will effectively pay out $480 over the course of two-years and hand the device back over when their contract terminates. As an extra perk enrollees can also get an exclusive $50 monthly plan for unlimited talk, text and data service – a discounted package saving users about $10 a month.

The only draw back to it is if the phone breaks, you buy it – and well you'll also never own the device.

Alternatively, for users who would rather keep their device can also agree to a Finance or two-year agreement Contract deal.

Financing a 16GB iPhone 6 will let users pay for the device in $30 installments spread across 24 months. Meanwhile, signing up for a two-year agreement lets has customers pay $199.99 upfront for the whole device saving them from nagging monthly device fees.

Verizon

Big Red will also open up pre-orders on the latest iPhones this Friday at the stroke of Midnight.

The telecom giant will have the 16GB iPhone 6 in all three colors for $199 with a two-year contract. Of course customers could also get the device though Verizon's Edge program and pay $32.49 per month for two years.

The plus-sized 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus with 16GB of storage on board will ring up for $299.99 with a two-year contract. The Verizon Edge deal for Apple's phablet is $37.49 split across 24 months.

Verizon is also offering users a way to get an iPhone 6 by trading in their older iOS 8 handset according to Bloomberg. By bringing in an older iPhone model users will get a $200 gift card in return that they can then use with the purchase of a $199.99 16GB iPhone 6.

It's not clear whether the offer applies to the other more expensive iPhone 6 models but TechRadar has sent Verizon an inquiry on the subject.

AT&T

Not to be left out AT&T also announced it would have the iPhone 6 pre-orders starting September 12 as well. But unlike Sprint and Verizon, the blue carrier has yet to divulge pricing details.

AT&T is sure to release more information as we approach Friday. In the meantime TechRadar has contacted AT&T and will update this post when we hear back.

T-Mobile

A little late to the ball, T-Mobile has yet to announce any details of how it will handle iPhone and iPhone 6 sales or even when pre-orders begin.

Given the Uncarrier's track record of crazy shenanigans, T-Mo will probably have some enticing deals for the device along with the usual unsubsidized and installment pricing.

Apple

Of course users could always skip dealing with carriers all together and buy their device direct from Apple itself. On top of pre-orders starting this Friday, users can pick up the company's latest handsets in person at their local Apple Store starting on September 19 beginning at 8:00am (PST).

At the Apple keynote yesterday, the Cupertino company noted the iPhone 6 would be available for $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for 64GB and $399 for 128GB.

The larger iPhone 6 Plus starts at $299 for 16GB, $399 for 16GB and $499 for the largest 128GB edition.
