Two new Apple devices have been released by Tracfone as they continue to offer a wider selection of smartphones to use on their prepaid network.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were first released in 2014, but have a number of great features that still makes them relevant today and desirable for many Tracfone users.

Two of the most popular features on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are the 8 MP rear camera which can capture slow motion video at 240 fps and the fingerprint sensor for securely locking and unlocking your device.

Tracfone also recently released the iPhone 5S, which also has an 8 MP camera, but no fingerprint sensor. It is available from Target for $199, and from the Tracfone website for $149, Visit our Tracfone iPhone 5S page for more details.

Tracfone users have already been able to use the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with Tracfone by using the BYOP program. This is still a good option if you can find a deal on the phone, but Tracfone's prices for the 6 and 6 Plus are actually quite reasonable.

Tracfone has the iPhone 6 16GB version available in black or white, and the iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB version also available in black or white.

Let's take a closer look at some of the features and specs for these phones.

Tracfone iPhone 6 Features and Specs

The iPhone 6 key features and specs include:
  • 4.7" touchscreen at 1134x750 resolution
  • GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0
  • 16 GB Internal Memory
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 1.4 Ghz Dual Core processor

A larger screen and improved camera are two of the upgrades the iPhone 6 has over the 5S. With the 6 you can record HD video at 240 fps for smooth slow motion shots.

16 GB internal memory is not a lot of space these days, but better than the majority of other Tracfone devices.

Let's look at the 6 Plus now.

  • Size: 6.22" x 3.06" x 0.28"
As you can tell, most of the features and specs on the 6 Plus are exactly the same as the 6. Some of the differences include the screen size and battery life. The 6 Plus comes with the same camera, internal memory, RAM and processor.

With each phone you also get Apple EarPods with mic and remote, Lightning to USB cable and USB power adapter.

If you like a larger screen on your smartphone like most people, the iPhone 6 Plus is well worth the money for the improved touchscreen. As a bonus, you also get longer battery life.

iPhone Size Comparison
A big draw for many is the camera on the iPhone. The quality is quite good and some of the features include phase detection autofocus, dual-LED flash and Optical Image Stabilization for the 6 Plus. If you're really curious about the image quality, take a look at GSMArena's Photo Quality Comparison for the iPhone 6 vs 5S vs Samsung Galaxy S6 (The Galaxy S6 is also available from Tracfone for just over $500 and has a 16MP camera, 32 GB memory and 3 GB RAM).

You can record 1080p HD video, or slow motion 240 fps at 720p. There are plenty of video samples on YouTube from the iPhone 6.

Overall both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are good devices with a lot of great features. While the specs are not very impressive compared to similarly priced Android phones, the performance is good with iOS.

Tracfone iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Price and Where to Buy

The iPhone 6 is available directly from the Tracfone website and is retailing for $399 which is actually quite a good deal as unlocked versions of the phone are selling on Amazon for about $500.

The 6 Plus is also available from the Tracfone website and is selling for $499, also a good price. Unlocked versions of these phone are available on Amazon for above $500.

To purchase these devices simply navigate to and click 'shop for phones'. Follow the prompts to enter your ZIP Code to check your coverage and then you should see a list of available Tracfone devices. If you don't see the iPhone it may either be out of stock or unavailable in your area.

We believe the Tracfone iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will both use CDMA networks like the 5S, but have not been able to confirm this. We have also noticed that the iPhones will show up even in GSM areas, so perhaps two versions are available.

We will continue to update this as we gather more information. We expect Tracfone to also release the iPhone SE, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus sometime in the near future, but no news on exactly when. Visit our post on Apple iPhones coming to Tracfone to learn more.

We hope this information is helpful and please leave a comment with any thoughts or questions. You can also join us on Facebook and post questions to our wall, or message us directly.

If you are able to figure out the GSM vs CDMA thing, that would be fantastic. My zip code is considered by Tracfone to be CDMA, but GSM actually works better for me where I live. So, I am trying to figure out if I order the phone, how I can ensure I get the GSM version...

I believe the 149.00 phone is sold out, have not seen it on the site since last weekend. I find it curious that for all the iPhones they do not mention triple calls, texts and data. They do have the smart phone cards, but I am wondering if they are phasing out the triple for all there smart phones.

Odd that Tracfone doesn't make the newest iPhone available. Seems easy enough to include a Tracfone SIM....

HSN has a new samsung phone, the on5 -

Do you know anything about this one? Is it similar to the grand prime?

I'm hopeful there's a day where all recent major brands are added to the TracFone fold.

That phone 5s at target is tempting as hell, but im looking forward at the larger screen o the 6 and 6+, probably will wait out the prices for now, Nice to see trac finally releasing their own iphones.

Can I transfer a tracfone non- smartphone number and minutes to a smartphone online?

TracfoneReviewer Team said...

Yes, you should be able to transfer everything through Tracfone's online process.

I so wish they would offer the iPhones with more memory!!! 15G is paltry, just not enough. I am thankful though that the iPhones are now available!

Can I BYOP for IPhone6 or 6+?

Unknown said...

One thing I would like in a phone is a better camera so the iphone interests me. But one thing I wonder is how texting photos via tracfone iphone works. Are photos you send and receive via text a use of data? Or is this a text? And are photos reduced in size that you receive and send like they are on older tracfones?

I bought the iPhone 6 from TF website on Black Friday at a $20 off discount. Easy to transfer over old TF account and TF smartphone, contacts and all. It's a great phone, and even with the discount off right now, still a bargain.

I can't find the iPhone 6s on the website. Help??

For those.still.looking for this phone on the Tracfone webpage- it. Isn't there anymore. I did buy the iPhone from the webpage during that short time frame it was there not knowing it was my last chance. Furthermore I can't find it anywhere else as I wanted to purchase another for a family member. I do love the iPhone I bought and it came new, unopened in a Apple box with all Apple warranty as every Apple product I have ever bought.
The only thing I think of is I know Apple discontinuedthis model and perhaps Tracfone had a very limited number to sell.
