How to buy the new iPhone 6

Now that the Apple iPhone 6 has landed, here's how you can get your hot little hands on this hot piece of tech!

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were both released on the 19th of September 2014 with more than a fair few Apple fans flocking to stores to be the first to get their hands on it. We can't blame them, to be honest, as it does look pretty slick.

If you didn't manage to get out of work that morning, or if you've decided to wait until now to buy the new iPhone 6, then here's handy guide on how you can own the new iPhone, too.


How can I buy the new iPhone 6?

Both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are now available for purchase! Naturally, your first port of call to nab yourself the iPhone 6 will be your local Apple Store. But why go to the trouble of walking into a store and battling the crowds when you can purchase one online... and have it delivered for free, too? By buying direct from Apple, you'll not only get all your warranty and genuine article assurance, you'll also be able to purchase your phone outright and unlocked so you can decide which carrier and plan you subscribe to.
