If you have considered upgrading your smartphone or making the switch to iPhone but had previously been put off by the hefty price tag, now is the best time to grab yourself a new iPhone without spending a fortune.
Perhaps now is the time to upgrade your old 32-bit iPhone, for one of the newer models which will be able to run iOS 11, when the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system is due for release in September.
With the launch of the iPhone 8 on the horizon, Thailand’s big three telecoms companies have slashed prices of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, while if you buy direct from the Apple website, you can also grab yourself the iPhone 6S at a discounted rated.
As a reminder the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus include Apple’s A9 processor with what is still a very capable 12MP rear camera that can shoot 4K video, while the 5MP front facing camera offers improved images in low light and can also shoot panoramic photos and slow motion video.
The iPhone 6S sports a 4.7 inch display, while the display on the larger iPhone 6S Plus measure 5.5 inches. Both phones include Apple’s 3D Touch which enables users to press against the screen on a particular app to be presented with more menus and options.
Currently DTAC is selling the iPhone 6s 128GB or the iPhone 6s Plus 32GB handset only for 22,190 THB. However, if you sign up to a monthly contract, you can start to grab yourself some serious discounts.
Normally priced at 22,900 THB, you can get a iPhone 6S 32GB for just 14,400 THB if you sign up to a monthly package at 899 baht.
Similar deals are available on the iPhone 6S 128GB, normally priced at 26,500 THB and which is now available for 17,900 THB.

Over at AIS, the 32GB and 128GB variants of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are available at reduced rates for anyone who signs up to an AIS Non Stop monthly package at 599 THB/month.

Meanwhile, if you buy direct from the Apple website, you can also benefit from a slight price reduction and larger storage capacity for both the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
Apple is selling the 32GB iPhone 6S at 22,500 THB, while the 128GB iPhone is listed at 26,500THB.
Now these are both better deals than you may realise.
When the iPhone 6S first launched in Thailand it was only available with 16GB or 64GB storage options, with the 16G version costing 26,500THB and the 64GB version 30,500THB.
Now both handsets have been reduced by 4,000 baht off the original sales price and you’re getting double the amount of storage space.
And it’s the same story with the iPhone 6S Plus where the 32GB and 128GB versions now cost 26,500THB and 30,500THB, respectively.
Compare this to 16GB version which cost 30,900THB and the 64GB version 34,500THB when the iPhone 6S Plus first launched in Thailand.
