Rogers iPhone 6s Contract Prices Start at $398.99, iPhone 6s Plus $528.99

Share:

Rogers has released their iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus contract prices. Due to our lower Canadian dollar, prices have increased compared to last year. Check out the 2-year Share Everything Plan prices below:

iPhone 6s

  • 16GB – $398.99
  • 64GB – $528.99
  • 128GB – $658.99

iPhone 6s Plus

  • 16GB – $528.99
  • 64GB – $658.99
  • 128GB – $788.99

 

Rogers iphone 6s prices

The iPhone 5s, the new entry iPhone, is $128.99 on a two-year term.

Due to our lower Canadian dollar, Apple adjusted their iPhone prices this spring, which also affected our carriers.ย Rogers had an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus price adjustment back in March:

If we compare prices in March for last yearโ€™s models to the iPhone 6s, weโ€™re seeing an additional $50 increase per model ($60 for 128GB). If you recall back to last fall, prices started at $265 for iPhone 6 and $375 for iPhone 6 Plus on contract. It’s not getting any cheaper to own an iPhone in Canada, eh?

As of writing, TELUS and Bell have not listed their contract prices yet, but expect them to be the same.

Earlier today, Rogers announced Wi-Fi calling would supported for iPhone users with an iPhone 5c or newer on a postpaid plan.

Let us know what you think about these updated prices!

Thanks @farsyte!

    Wow!! A lot better than expected.

  • mike

    You’re kidding right?

  • @Richard_Hansen

    Wow, outrageous prices!

  • farsyte

    I don’t get it. If memory serves me right at one point we were on par with the Americans. Our dollar took a hit so the $300US iPhone 6s should cost $400 in Canada. I know that we went from 3 years to 2 years but that’s why they raised the price of contracts. Contracts went up by a minimum of $20 (I’m being modest here, my 6gb plan is now $50 more and I would only get 5Gb) So why are we being charged an additional $130?

  • Chris

    While not surprising at the price, that also kills my hope of upgrading this year. Not everyone has that kind of cash just laying around. Heres hoping my 5S lasts another year **fingers crossed**

  • Jer

    still a better price on contract then full unlocked price. I’m glad I’m out of contract now ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Magrat22

    Nope, wrote a longer reply twice, got deleted.

  • Magrat22

    Exactly.

  • ?suttonmontreal

    Solution !!! Buy thru Kijiji two months after release date and you’ll save $$$ No contract

  • Magrat22

    Subsidy (sp?) is only $480 which is the $20 you pay each month so they just take that from the total cost without tax and that’s the price they get. So I believe.

  • farsyte

    But if the $20 extra a month is the only sub what were we paying before the contracts went up? That $20 was already built in to all existing 3 year contracts. If you were paying $75/mo $20 from that was going towards your device plus the money you would have put up front. The extra $20 is now there to cover the third year that no longer exists.

  • Magrat22

    I only paid $10 a month sub on a 3 year contract. Got moved to $20 when it changed to the 2 year. At the end of the day it’s Apple that set the price and the bad exchange rate that’s giving us such a raw deal not Rogers. Prices would’ve been the same as last year if the loonie wasn’t so low.

  • Im not surprise… Weak Canadian dollars… So quickly, the iPhone 6 n 6 plus are kinda the same price with no lower price… N the 6s and the 6s plus are more expensive. I always noticed a 500$ difference between contract or full price. It’s easy, now u get around 15-20$/month off if u bring your device… So 20$/month for 24 months = 480$. And the phone is unlock and yours…

    I’m suspecting also the iPhone upgrade program will eventually come to Canada… Like next year for the iPhone 7.
    But yeah, the $Can is kicking our ass very badly now….
    And for people saying, when the $ was equal to the US, Apple never lowered they prices, it’s not true… They did adjust when it happen… Usually, they do whe they release me version. It’s very rare they adjust the price like they did last March. But they do…

  • It’s totally the same… Depend on your plan… Some company give 20$/month if u bring your own device. So it’s like 480$. And all iPhone on contract are locked and cost 500$ less then the full unlinked price….

  • Bryan Simmons

    Have you been on Kijiji lately? People basically ask retail price these days

  • Bryan Simmons

    This is absolutely ridiculous, I understand our dollar is low right now, but a $200 difference between us as the states? If things keep going this way I won’t be upgrading my iPhone next year when I’m up for renewal

  • Sorry to hear that… but the exchange rate is 30%…. So it’s why 200$ difference…. the iPhone 6S Plus 64 GB is 849US and should be around 1120$ (based on today’s exchange rate with no fees from bank)… So 1159$ is very close.

    Video games did the same…. now instead of seeing games at 69$… it’S 79$, so 20$ more than the US…

    We’re back to where we were a few years ago with our $. We got spoiled for a few years and now… BANG ๐Ÿ™

  • I always used Kijiji to re-sell my past Apple gears… and I agree so much fake, junk on kijiji.
    Got so many stupid emails from my iPhone 6plus 64gb post…. For me, i’m asking 750$ for it (and will be gone for 700$).

  • ?????????

    Even on a contract, the prices are just not justifiable and 16 gigs is just not reasonable, this is a very, very greedy company. i can literally go to the dominican republic for a week long all inclusive drink till i no longer remember my name and comeback to canada with money left over for the price of a 128 gig iphone 6s plus ON CONTRACT!

  • Then you know what to do ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your vacations ๐Ÿ™‚ heheheh !!!

  • ?????????

    Ill have a margarita and a senorita for you steve, cheers!

  • impreza35

    Doesn’t add up for the contract pricing though. $199 US on a two year contract for a 16GB 6S. Here, $399. Double the price, not 30%.

  • Tim

    I’m sure Apple’s accountant’s are gaming this to great benefit. They’ll likely keep the CAD proceeds in the country, financing Canadian domestic operations, and banking any residual until the dollar inevitably comes back up. After that they’ll move cash over the border, making an amazing premium on Canadian sales.

  • AEdouard

    Yeah, It’s the Canadian carriers being the greediest in the world. Apple sure likes its money, but the unlocked full price is pretty much in line with the exchange rate. The on contract prices, which were always higher in Canada than in the US, start to look completely ridiculous now that the CAD is low.

    Rogers and all could keep these insane contract prices (compared to say AT&T) when the Canadian dollar was overvalued (at 1 USD=1 CAD), but now that it is actually under what it should be, they won’t be able to keep this up, the sales of iPhones will drop too much and the point at which they extract maximum profit will be with a lower on contract price.

  • AEdouard

    It’s higher than I thought for on contract prices (higher than the jump in exchange rates). The unlocked full price is pretty much what I expected.

  • Cody Woodward

    The iPhone 6s in 16gb is $398.99 subsidized effectively hitting your $400 mark. What’s the issue?

  • farsyte

    Ya but don’t forget that the 16Gb is only $199US, converted that would be around $265 CAD. My point was that when our dollar was on par so where the prices. Our dollar went down (phone price should be $265 not $399) and carriers lost a year ($20×12 that we now pay extra on all contracts to make up for that year is $240) total should be $505
    ($265 upfront+$240 spread out in 24 months) but in reality we are paying $399 upfront for a 16Gb + the additional $240 spread out in two years is $639. There’s a $139 difference that’s not accounted for.

  • MrXax

    Good lord. I’d expect those prices to be the unlocked, unsubsidized prices. Now I’m not sure what I’m going to do.

  • Richard Chiang

    The iPhone 6 Plus 128 GB is also now listed on the Rogers website as $499 which is a savings of almost $300 compared to the 6s Plus (compared to the $50 savings on the 16 and 64 GB versions)

  • Shameer Mulji

    Considering it qualifies for iOS 9, I can’t see why not.

  • farsyte

    Ya but don’t forget that the 16Gb is only $199US, converted that would be around $265 CAD. My point was that when our dollar was on par so where the prices. Our dollar went down (phone price should be $265 not $399) and carriers lost a year ($20 original built in per month + $20 additional to make up for third year x 24/mo is $960) total should be $1,225 ($265 upfront+$960 spread out in 24 months) but in reality we are paying $399 upfront for a 16Gb + the additional $960 spread out in two years is $1,359

  • Shameer Mulji

    Exchange rate as of right now is 33%. Was around 35% few days ago.

  • Shameer Mulji

    Contract prices are set by the carriers. Blame them for that.

  • Shameer Mulji

    “….”unlocked full price is pretty much in line with the exchange rate. ”

    Exactly.

  • Shameer Mulji

    “I’m suspecting also the iPhone upgrade program will eventually come to Canada… Like next year for the iPhone 7. ”

    I sure hope so.

  • ????Dennis

    I’m selling my iPhone 6 on kijiji for $900. Never used accessories and never Used Apple Care+ yet. Now that’s a deal ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • ????Dennis

    Exactly. That’s why I bought unlocked from Apple. At least you’re saving the unlock fee

  • farsyte

    Keep this in mind 16Gb is only $199US, converted that would be around $265 CAD. When our dollar was on par so where the prices. Our dollar went down (phone price should be $265 not $399) and carriers lost a year ($20 original built in per month + $20 additional to make up for third year x 24/mo is $960) total should be $1,225 ($265 upfront+$960 spread out in 24 months) but in reality we are paying $399 upfront for a 16Gb + the additional $960 spread out in two years is $1,359. They are making a killing off of us.
    Back when i paid $75/mo for my 3 year contract that $20 was built in. $20 for device $55 for plan. They never actually showed you that. It was invicicible. They just said $75 for 3 years. Ok, so they lose a year so all plans go up by $20. Now that’s $40 per months on a device. Just do the math.

  • neufsky

    Will Fido’s prices be even higher than the Rogers prices?

  • neufsky

    This is weird, I only wondered if Fido will charge even more on contract than Rogers, and my comment got deleted? Considering Fido is a subsidiary of Rogers, it is a totally fair, on topic comment, no?

  • MrXax

    I can see your original post.

  • MrXax

    Just spent 40 minutes live chatting with a Rogers rep. They spent most of that time trying to convince me to switch to Share Everything (at $30 more than I pay now), rather than answering my very simple question. They finally did, though.

    To get these prices, you MUST change to a SHARE EVERYTHING plan. It’s been real, Rogers.

  • Haha…it’s going to come down to 3D Touch vs a vacation in the sun ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Chris

    While I know that the software side is covered for a few more year, I meant hardware and the daily wear and tear.

  • Shaun

    This is nothing new. They enforced this last year as well. Rogers told me if I wanted the subsidized iphone 6 price I’d have to change my plan from what I had, and I what I had was an $80 plan with 6gigs of data, and switch it to there share everything plan. Which I would have lost my 6gb’s of data and would be paying more monthly. I told them to screw it and put my Iphone 6 plus outright.

  • Shaun

    bought***

  • Shameer Mulji

    Ah yes, good point.

  • MrXax

    Bummer. It’s been 3 years since I upgraded (I’m still on an iPhone 5), so wasn’t aware of this policy. Bah. My 6GB plan is about $70 taxes in, but I’m not willing to pay those prices to buy a 6S outright.

    I might wait a bit to see if any of the carriers offer a better deal. If not, I may look into an iPhone 6, or just make the leap to Android + Wind.

  • jroc

    Why would they do that? It is cheaper to finance Canadian operations with US cash right now than it has been in years. Also, they report all earnings on a US dollar basis, they can’t just keep the money from Canada off of the balance sheet/income statement.

    They’ve already hedged against a further drop in the CAD by using a rate of 1.36. They’ve covered their bases, and they’re already making money off the current fx rates.

  • 1His_Nibs1

    I agree with everything you’ve stated BUT not a lot of people have $1000 lying around hence they opt for the subsidized ptices. I know if I could shell out $1000 on an iPhone up front and save that $220 I would but I unfortunately have to eat the extra $220 if I want a new iPhone. Samsung is looking better & better. I’ll easily save $800 by switching from Apple. Hell I could get a Windows 8.1 Nokia for $0!!!!!!! I’m kinda getting tired of paying premium prices for Apple iPhones. $400 for a 16gb iPhone is a f**king joke!

  • 1His_Nibs1

    I was actually contemplating this. Glad you reminded people of this cost saving option. That’s a great price for a 128gb phone but you can still get a Samsung for cheaper. I personally don’t have any of my stuff in Apple’s ecosystem (except photos) & I could afford to lose them if push comes to shove.

  • buulam

    The carriers had to restructure their plans to support the 2 year agreements. One way or another, they are going to make us all pay. Share Everything actually works for my phone usage but not for my wife so I had to buy her phone outright last year to keep her old plan.
