Sprint Throws A Shot In The iPhone 6s Price War With $1/Month Plan

The new iPhones don’t come out until tomorrow, but leasing prices for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus fell once again with an announcement by Sprint that it will offer the 16GB iPhone 6s 16GB for $1/month.

The limited-time promotion also prices a 22-month lease for the 16GB iPhone 6s Plus at $5/month.

Sprint’s prices are available only if an iPhone 6 is traded in, and the price includes a yearly upgrade. Sprint wouldn’t put an expiration date on the promotion, which is available only through Sprint-brand stores.

Yesterday, T-Mobile unveiled a $5/month JUMP (Just Upgrade My Phone) On Demand leasing price for the 16GB iPhone 6s and a $9/month price for the 16GB iPhone 6s Plus with a trade-in of an iPhone 6. The lease runs for 18 months but lets users upgrade up to three times per year.

Sprint’s offer, good through Dec. 31, is part of the carrier’s iPhone Forever program, which allows new and upgrade-eligible Sprint customers to get the newest iPhone as soon as it is available.

Sprint is also leasing higher memory versions of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus at low monthly prices: $5.77/month for the 64GB 6s and $10.53/month for the 128GB 6s with the trade in of an iPhone 6. For the 6s Plus, the price goes to $9.77/month for the 64GB version and $14.53/month for the 128GB with an iPhone 6 trade-in.

For consumers who want to trade in an iPhone 5, the carrier will offer a $10/month price on the 16GB 6s and $14/month on the 16GB 6s Plus.

Separately, through Dec. 31, consumers who switch to Sprint and trade in any smartphone, and upgrade-eligible Sprint subscribers who turn in any other smartphone, will get a promotional rate of $15/month on iPhone 6s 16GB, which would regularly go for $22/month without a trade-in.
