iPhone 6

32GB iPhone 6 now available in UK via EE network

A 32-gigabyte version of iPhone 6 has quietly launched in the United Kingdom on the EE network with a 24-month contract, available only in Space Grey. Apple stopped selling 16/64/128GB iPhone 6 smartphones in September 2016.

In recent months, however, the Cupertino giant quietly re-launched the phone in China, Taiwan and a few European countries in a never-before-available 32-gigabyte capacity.

Given that iPhone 6 originally debuted in 16, 64 and 128-gigabyte versions, this new 32-gigabyte storage tier is likely Apple’s solution targeting budget shoppers. Aside from the previously unavailable storage capacity, the 32GB iPhone 6 comes with iOS 10 versus iOS 8 that was pre-installed on the original iPhone 6 models.

Amazon is currently offering the device via its online store in India.

Released back in 2014, iPhone 6 was Apple's first larger-screened smartphone and as such proved a massive upgrade opportunity for the Cupertino firm. The device has a 4.7-inch LCD screen, runs Apple's in-house designed A8 chip and includes an eight-megapixel iSight camera out the back and a rather unimpressive 1.2-megapixel FaceTime selfie camera out the front.

32GB iPhone 6 now available in Spain, Italy, Turkey, Germany, Austria, Denmark & elsewhere

Apple's limited-edition iPhone 6 with 32 gigabytes of storage, dubbed “iPhone 6 (2017),” is now available in Spain via the German retailer Media Markt for €469, which works out to about $500, with a two-year warranty and a 14-day return policy.

In comparison, Apple sells the 32GB iPhone 6s in Spain though its online store for €659, or about $720.

The handset is available in other markets, too, including Chile, Germany, Denmark, Austria, Italy, Turkey (aka the worst place to buy an iPhone) and possibly elsewhere.

iPhone 6 originally launched in 16, 64 and 128-gigabyte versions and this new storage tier appears to be Apple's option for budget shoppers in select markets.

The 32GB iPhone 6 was originally relaunched in January in China.

In early-March, Taiwan Mobile began promoting the 32GB iPhone 6 in gold casing as the cheapest iPhone to be offered on its network, for the equivalent of $435 unlocked.

In mid-March, it arrived in Belarus, a landlocked country in Eastern Europe bordered by Russia, via the i-Store retail chain, priced at the equivalent of $522 (999 Belarusian rubles).

Amazon is also offering the device via its online store in India.

The 32GB iPhone 6 (2017) is identical to the original iPhone 6 which debuted in 2014, complete with a 4.7-inch 1,334-by-750 pixel resolution screen, a 1.2-megapixel camera out the front, an eight-megapixel shooter out the back, Apple’s 64-bit A8 processor with 1GB of RAM and more.

Aside from the previously unavailable storage SKU, the phone comes with iOS 10 versus iOS 8 which came pre-installed on Apple's original iPhone 6 models.

Taiwanese carrier relaunching iPhone 6 in Gold

Taiwan Mobile announced Thursday that it's relaunching Apple's discontinued iPhone 6. The Taiwanese wireless carrier has begun taking pre-orders for the 32-gigabyte version of iPhone 6, but it's only available in Gold. The handset will go on sale on March 10. Last month, Apple relaunched 32-gigabyte editions of iPhone 6 in China, priced at 3,900 yuan unlocked, or approximately $567.

The iPhone 6 lineup was discontinued last September, when iPhone 7 launched and iPhone 6's spot as the entry-level iPhone has since been taken by iPhone SE.
