iPhone 6S /6S Plus

iPhone 6S/6S Plus

Date Written: 9/10/15

On September 8, 2015, Apple announced the latest models of the iPhone series the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus. The phones are set to be available starting September 25th. There are four color options for the new phones which are Silver, Gold, Space Grey, and Rose Gold, which is a new color for iPhones.

The phones look the same as last year's model, but they are made out of an aluminum alloy called Series 7,000 which is sturdier than materials used in past iPhones. Apple claims that the new A9 processor included in each phone is 70 percent faster than last year's A8 processor with computing tasks, and 90 percent faster with graphical tasks like gaming. The camera has also been upgraded to a 12-megapixel camera from the 8-megapixel camera in the previous model. The phones include a new feature called 3D Touch which gives users different functionality based on whether they lightly tap on something versus if they press harder.

Apple also announced changes to their iCloud storage plans, as well as, new options for paying monthly for using the iPhone instead of having to commit to a contract with a phone carrier. With these monthly plans you can also choose to pay a little more each month and get the option to upgrade to new iPhone models as they come out each year.
Overall the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus appear to be another good phone release in the iPhone series. The devices have better build quality and internal hardware which should lead to an improved and faster experience for users.
