Apple iPhone 6S in Detail
Apple iPhone 6S (the most awaited smartphone from Apple stable this year) carries the same design as its predecessor (iPhone 6) but is made of 7000 series aluminium metal and is more power packed when it comes to hardware front. These hardware upgrades on iPhone 6S lets iOS 9 unleash it true potential. And, Apple, after a long time has truly re-imagined the smartphone by bringing killer features like live photos & iconic force touch technology to iPhones 6S series (also known as 3D Touch).
Note: Apple first introduced the popular force touch technology with new 12 inch Macbook models.
iPhone 6S - Fastest Among All the iPhones
The iPhone 6S model is powered by 3rd generation A9 64 bit chip with M9 motion coprocessor - which is 70% faster than the A8 chip that powered the iPhone 6. This (A9) chip has a new transistor architecture that is not only optimized for the real world use but also produces 90% faster graphics (GPU). Gamers & designers are going to welcome this hardware upgrade.
Ultimate Screen, Superb Display
iPhone 6S (just like its predecessor) comes with a screen size of 4.7 inches - a perfect size for single handed operation. The front glass of iPhone 6S is made of Ion-X which is currently the strongest glass in the industry. The superior retina display with IPS technology and 50% more pixels on iPhone 6S is guaranteed to provide a visual treat for the love of your eyes.
3D Touch - A Killer Feature and a Deal Breaker
3D Touch feature on the iPhone 6S will change the way you use your iPhone. This dynamic system (which is deeply integrated into iOS 9) lets you perform different things based on the pressure applied on the screen. With 3D Touch, you can now peek into your app - change your facebook status, or read an email without even opening the app. The taptic engine uses capacitive sensors (integrated into the backlight of the retina display) to actually measure the distance between the glass and the backlight to perform the dynamic action. It lets you jump directly into an app feature.
Upgraded Camera - 12 MegaPixel iSight Rear Camera and 5MP HD Front Camera
iPhone 6S comes with an upgraded 12MP rear camera and high definition 5MP front camera for those obsessed with taking selfies. Its iSight feature helps take the best quality pictures with better and more accurate autofocus control. The live photos feature on iPhone 6S is something will change the way you think of photos. By making use of efficient frame to frame technology, live photos captures the extended movement before and after the regular photo shots and transforms them into a live photo - which can be played using the 3D touch feature.
For those who love taking selfies, the 5MP front camera comes with retina flash. With retina flash on, the entire front display becomes 3X brighter thus acting as front flash to deliver the true tone.
When it comes to videos, iPhone 6S provides the capability to take 4K motion videos - which for sure will cover every live moment with most accurate details.
Blazing Fast Wireless & LTE
iPhone 6S guarantees uninterrupted online content consumption with improved Wi-Fi and LTE that is twice as fast as any other iPhone.
Touch ID - Apple's Iconic Finger Print Based Security
The TouchID on iPhone 6S is pretty much the same as that on the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus models and allows you to make payments on iTunes, Apps Store and iBooks. The superior authentication experience that one experiences using the thumbprint on the Touch ID makes iPhone 6S the most preferred wallet while purchasing apps, music, shopping online or in-store purchases.
