“The only thing that has changed with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is everything.” – Philip Schiller
It appears the rumors for Apple‘s newest iPhone were true, but when are they not? Today, Apple unveiled the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, their most advanced iPhones ever.
The new iPhones come with 3D Touch, Apple’s newest Multi-Touch interface that adds a new dimension to your iPhone. 3D Touch senses force that will help create intuitive new ways of accessing features and interacting with content.
iPhone 6s ($650+) and iPhone 6s Plus ($750+) feature 7000 series aluminum, the same alloy used to construct planes and rockets. For the screens, the new iPhone S phones will use Retina HD displays that are touted as the strongest glass on any smartphone. Let’s just say you can’t make any more excuses about shattering your glass.
“The only thing that has changed with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is everything — 3D Touch lets users interact with iPhone in entirely new and fun ways, and the innovative Live Photos brings your pictures to life,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “These are the most advanced iPhones ever, with 7000 series aluminum, ion-strengthened glass, the new 64-bit A9 chip, 12-megapixel iSight and 5-megapixel FaceTime HD cameras, faster Touch ID, LTE and Wi-Fi. Customers are going to love them.”
A first for the iPhone family is Apple’s new approach to photography called Live Photos. This new feature brings images to life by capturing moments in motion. Knowing little about this besides the quick demo we saw during the Apple Event, Live Photos is created by using the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus’ 3D Touch technology.
In addition to the improvements above, the new phones will have some major camera upgrades. The front facing camera is now 5-megapixels, while the back runs off of a 12-megapixel sensor with advanced pixel technology and an Apple-designed image signal sensor. This helps provide truer colors and sharper, more detailed photos.
As for video, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus now support 4K video with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. That’s over 8 million pixels!
You will be able to pre-order your silver, gold, space gray, or rose gold iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus on September 9. Learn more by visiting Apple.com.
