This Is The Official iPhone 6S & iPhone 6S Plus (Details)

By -

Apple has finally removed the curtains from the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus. As expected most of the things that were mentioned today had been leaked previously by various tech blogs. But still if you want to know the details of everything that was announced today regarding the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus - you have come to the right place! Here are the official specifications for the latest iPhones.

iPhone 6S Design

Let’s directly jump into the design. The iPhone 6S is identical to the iPhone 6 that is currently in market when it comes to the design. If you have used or seen an iPhone 6 then you know what I’m talking about. Since the specs of the iPhone 6 are already available - I’m not going to write them down here. You can check it out on the official webpage.

But there is one slight difference (which you might not notice) is that the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus are made from a stronger 7000 series aluminum.

iPhone 6S Camera

During the keynote Apple mentioned that everything about the new iPhone has been changed. When you first look at it, it might not be true but when it comes to the internals - it’s correct.

Apple now packs in a 12 megapixel camera but that is not it. Apple has brought out a complete new iSight camera that has the ability to record 4K videos!

Not only has the rear camera gotten an upgrade but the front facing camera has been bumped up too. Now the front facing camera is a five-megapixel that means clearer selfies. And, instead of adding a new flash to the front, Apple has added a new device that can make the screen brightness be increased by three times! Therefore whenever you take selfies at night. The screen will do the job.

Live Photos iPhone 6S

Another small but quite intuitive feature is the live photos. Now these are not videos as some might think. These are in fact still photos that you are going to take but the camera will record 1.5 second before and after to give it a more realistic feeling.

To see the live photos you can simply use the new 3D Touch technology and deep press to see them in action. Also when you are swiping across, you will be able to see a mini live photo in action.

While we are in discussion of the 3D Touch. Let’s talk about it.

iPhone 6S 3D Touch

This had been talked about extensively in the past and had been leaked by various sources. And it is, as we expected it to be.

Apple has brought out the Force Touch technology to the iPhone 6S, giving the users the ability to tap, deep press and hold. These are going to bring various new gestures for people to use for different purposes.

Apps can use this to do various new things. Apple has already brought this use to the native apps. If you use the 3D Touch on let’s say the camera app, it will open a menu giving you the option to take a selfie, record video and more.

The 3D Touch is going to be very useful, especially in games. Developers can use this to do various things such as deep pressing to fire a more powerful missile in a shooting game (that was demoed in one of the games at the keynote).

3D Touch has opened the doors for new things to come and surely developers are going to take full advantage of this.

iPhone 6S Technologies

Besides the 3D Touch, Apple has packed in tons of small but new technologies. The iPhone 6S features a very powerful A9 processor that can bring true powerful games to the iPhone.

The Touch ID has also been improved. It can now scan your fingers twice as fast as before. Eliminating the ‘lag’ that some people might have experienced.
