Apple fans around the world had been waiting for September 9th. The event started off at 10 am PDT today and first on Apple’s list were the new iPhones. As expected the company showed off two new models today, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays respectively. Most of the rumors that we had heard about these iPhones turned out to be true, including the one about Apple’s new payment service. What about last year’s iPhone? Their prices have been slashed to make room at the top for the new models.

Whenever new iPhones are launched the previous generation models get a price cut. This year it was the turn of the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s. First up is Apple’s “unapologetically plastic” iPhone 5c which will now be available for free, in the 8GB configuration, with a new two year service contract.

The iPhone 5s will now start at $99 also with a new two year service contract. They’re available across all major U.S. carriers so you don’t have to worry about switching carriers.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus now sit at the top. The former starts at $199 also with a new contract, whereas the iPhone 6 Plus pushes Apple’s smartphone in the $299 category. There’s 128GB configuration available for both new models. The new iPhones hit shelves September 19th.
