Apple has used a busy, action-packed event in San Francisco to show off its new iPhone 6s with 3D Touch display and new Rose Gold model. Here's everything you need to know plus how to buy the iPhone 6s in the UK.

After a year of rumours, speculation and ever-mounting evidence, Apple has finally released the iPhone 6s and its bigger sibling, the iPhone 6s Plus. As expected, the new iPhones come in a new Rose Gold colour and also offer 3D Touch, but there are lots of other new features, too. Read on to find out more about the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, including the iPhone 6s release date, UK price, all of the new features, how to buy the iPhone 6s & 6s Plus in the UK and get the best iPhone 6s deals.

How to buy an iPhone 6s from the Apple Store: Has the iPhone 6s sold out?

If you want to head into an Apple Store to buy your iPhone 6s, you can certainly expect to see queues and it's possible that the particular model you're after will be sold out, especially if you're visiting one of Apple's more popular stores.

If you want to buy your iPhone 6s on contract rather than from Apple directly, you an expect to find them in retail branches of EE, O2, Three, Virgin and Vodafone.

From Saturday 26 September, you'll be able to reserve your iPhone to pick up in store, and Apple says that most stores will have the iPhone available for walk-in customers every day, so we expect regular deliveries are planned.

iPhone 6s & 6s Plus price UK: How much do the new iPhones cost?

The iPhone 6s starts at £539, while the iPhone 6s Plus starts at £619. Breaking that down further:

iPhone 6s 16GB: £539
iPhone 6s 64GB: £619
iPhone 6s 128GB: £699

iPhone 6s Plus 16GB: £619
iPhone 6s Plus 64GB: £699
iPhone 6s Plus 128GB: £789

Where to buy the iPhone 6s in the UK

As mentioned above, Apple began pre-orders for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on Saturday 12 September at 8.01am, and then became available to buy on 25 September from 8am.

On Apple's Online Store, you'll be able to order the new iPhone unsubsidised for the prices listed above, but most models now have a 1-2 week dispatch estimate so you might want to try reserving a model to buy in store (which you can do by pressing the button below 'Add to Bag' at checkout on the Apple Store) or buying the phone from a carrier or third-party seller.

Where buy the iPhone 6s UK: Best iPhone 6s deals and contracts

If you're looking to get your iPhone 6s on contract, you'll want to turn to a carrier.

How to buy iPhone 6s UK: EE

The EE contract that the carrier recommends for the iPhone 6s is £49.99 per month with a £49.99 upfront cost, and for that you'll get 4GB of data with unlimited texts and calls. You can order from EE here.

How to buy iPhone 6s UK: Mobile Phones Direct

iPhone 6s & 6s Plus: Is the iPhone 6s waterproof?

Reports are suggesting the new iPhone 6s is waterproof. This is based on iFixit’s tear down of the new iPhone. iFixIt claims that it found an adhesive running around the edge of the iPhone along with silicon seals on the connectors inside the iPhone. This could serve to protect the iPhone from water damage. However, Apple is not claiming that the iPhone is waterproof, so we don’t suggest that you take any risks. The company famously has a water indicator inside the iPhone that show if the iPhone has had water damage when you take it in for repair.
