According to Venture Beat, with the Apple's announcement of its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices that also means discounts and discontinued older iPhone models. Like every year when it launches a new product, the high-tech company has dropped the starting price of last year's flagship devices by $100.

The price tags for the current iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on contract start now at only $99 and $199, respectively. Apple has also doubled the base data storage for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to 32 GB, so users who are not buying the latest iPhones can still get more space.

Apple has also announced that the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 5s phone models are discontinued. Buyers looking for those older phones cannot find them anymore3 through any official channels.

Apple debuted the iPhone Upgrade Program at last year's September event. This program allows buyers to purchase every year a new unlocked iPhone directly from the company rather than their carrier. This means that, for instance, those who took advantage of the program to purchase an iPhone 5s last year, can get an iPhone SE this year. Those who used the program to get an iPhone 6s Plus last year, will be able to get now an iPhone 7 Plus.

Those buyers who are not interested in this year's phones, can get now a "new" iPhone without paying the premium for the latest model. The exact pricing will vary depending on whether they are buying directly from Apple or from a carrier, as well as their country and sale taxes.
