New iPhone 6s prices – iStore Card vs mobile contracts

The iStore recently launched a new financing service that offers the ability to upgrade your iPhone every year without buying a new device or taking out a new cellular contract.

Called the iStore Card, it lets members buy iPhones on credit without tying them to a network provider or tariff plan.

Prices for the latest range of Apple smartphones start at R549 per month for the iPhone 6s 16GB, and go up to R815 per month for the iPhone 6s Plus 128GB.

With the launch of the new financing option, and the ability to trade your iPhone in annually – in sync with Apple’s upgrade cycle – iPhone users may consider the iStore Card instead of a cellphone contract from a mobile operator.

The table below compares the prices of the various mobile contract and repayment plans – including the iStore Card – currently available.

Note: inclusive value like data, SMS bundles, call minutes, and airtime is not taken into account.
