iPhone 6 US release date, price: Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T network deals

The highly-anticipated iPhone 6 will finally reach store shelves on Friday, Sept. 19.

Months after all the rumors about Apple's biggest innovations yet, the 4.7-inch iPhone model and its 5.5-inch counterpart, called the iPhone 6 Plus, will be available soon. The former's price starts at $199, while the latter is worth $299.

The news about the iPhone 6 release date came during Apple's media event yesterday at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, California.

Although Apple announced that their website will start accepting pre-orders beginning September 12, both devices will be available in retail stores in the US at exactly 8 a.m. on Sept. 19.  Since new iPhone launches normally end up in long queues in front of the stores, it would be more ideal to get a new phone from the Apple Store directly online.

However, even the Apple website can get congested with all the request for iPhone 6 purchases. As an alternative, those who want to get the first dibs on the phone can get it from various network carriers in the US.

Here are the following iPhone 6 deals from the top US mobile networks.

Sprint

To strengthen their conquest to get more wireless subscribers, Sprint Corp. announced that they will offer a new service plan as well as a new iPhone 6-leasing deal in the wake of Apple's announcement. Dubbed as the "iPhone for Life Plan," the carrier offers unlimited data usage for only $50 per month. Subscribers can also get the 16GB iPhone 6 without having to pay a downpayment and with only a minimal monthly fee of $20. Alternatively, consumers can buy the device using the Easy Pay installment scheme that has a one -time payment of $58 with $30 monthly payments. The carrier also offers the latest iPhone with a new two-year contract for only $199.

Verizon Communications

The network carrier offers a free iPhone 6 for subscribers who will trade in their old units and sign a new two-year agreement. The deal comes with a $200 gift card that can be used to purchase the 16GB iPhone 6 for $199.99.

AT&T

Though AT&T has yet to formally announce any detailed information about the kind of schemes that the company will offer for the latest iPhone 6 models, a specific landing page meant for its September 12 pre-order had been included in its website.

T-Mobile

Just like all the other network carriers, T-Mobile will also offer a pre-order option for the two iPhone 6 devices starting September 12. However, there is no news yet about what the network can offer for those who want to subscribe using the latest Apple phones.
