iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus introduced

iPhone-6sIt looks like the inevitable has happened, and just like its predecessors, the iPhone has received yet another seasonal update, except that this time around, it will arrive in two different versions since there are two different defining iPhones at the moment on the market – the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will continue from where both predecessors have left off, bringing along with it technologies new to the iPhone platform (but not necessarily on other handsets) in order to be the most advanced iPhones to date.

For starters, both of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will come with the revolutionary Multi-Touch interface, boasting of 3D Touch that is capable of sensing force in order to enable intuitive new ways to access features and interact with content. Apart from that, your eyes will also be pleased to take advantage of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus’ Retina HD displays which happen to be made from the strongest glass on any smartphone alongside 7000 series aluminum. 7000 series aluminum is the same alloy that sees action in the aerospace industry, where you can now pick from rose gold as well.

Both new iPhones will also feature a transformative new approach to photography known as Live Photos, where still images are brought to life by capturing a moment in motion. Live Photos, 3D Touch and other advancements in the new iPhones happen to be powered by the Apple-designed 64-bit A9 chip, where it is accompanied by a new 12-megapixel iSight and 5-megapixel FaceTime HD cameras, faster Touch ID, LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity.

This means you can also capture video in 4K resolution – that would amount to 3840 x 2160, which is more than 8 million pixels, while optical image stabilization for video on iPhone 6s Plus lets you shoot beautiful videos in lower light conditions. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will arrive in gold, silver, space gray and the new rose gold metallic shades for $0 down with 24 monthly payments starting at $27 and $31, respectively.
