NEW FEATURES

Media event in San Francisco to present new iPhones had been organized for September the 9th, 2015. CEO Tim Cook has summed up all the new iPhones in a simple sentence; He said “While they may look familiar, we have changed everything about these new iPhones.” Simple but effective summary of what’s new in iPhones, generally speaking everything!

6S models are available in 2 sizes with 4.7 and 5.5 inch Retina Displays, there is no changes in design from iPhone 6 but it looks just nice enough, the concentration had been on hardware from camera to the processor improvements. Technology updates of Touchscreen and vibration engine are some to mention and the material of the iPhone is entirely different than all before, less bendable 7000 series aluminium alloy used for the core material, stronger durable than what had been used in previous generation phones produced by Apple. Glass had been hardened, made using dual ion exchange process, these are all very important changes but most of participants in San Francisco have been stunned by the new colour rose gold, new aluminium finish accompanying other colour options.

Touch ID in 6s/6s plus models have reached another level, fingerprint detection is twice faster than before and 64=bit A9 Processor in both devices 70% faster at CPU tasks and 90% faster at GPU Tasks than the A8 processor in 6 and 6 plus models. There is also a built-in M9 motion coprocessor enabling new features, one of the interesting one I would like to tell you about in another article Always on Hey Siri.

IPhone 6s and 6s plus Multi Touch has been moved to a level we have never experienced before, 3D Touch feature had been differentiated hugely from previous models of iPhones built with it by recognition of pressure, pressure enables range of shortcut gestures called Peek and Pop. New Taptic engine providing feedback of tactile use based on pressure based gestures used on the iPhone.

In-year S upgrades of Apple has routinely involved a camera upgrade, and the same occurred in the 6S upgrade with 12-megapixel camera with internal improvements to bring higher levels of colour and speed accuracy, the new feature in 6S Plus phones is Optical Image Stabilization, it is only available in 6S plus model not on 6S.

Your new advanced tools in iPhone 6S/6S Plus does not end here, with improved camera video quality became 4K and supports 30 FPS meaning it can capture 63 megapixel panoramas, the front facing camera is upgraded to 5-Megapixel and the Flash entirely renewed with True Tone Retina Flash lighting up the display of iPhone before a photo captured. Live photos to upload on social media is also of the most attention gathering new thing in iPhone 6s they are 1.5 seconds of movement before and after a photo is taken to show short animations and sounds when 3D features used on a still image taken to make it vibrant and live. Start trying the LIVE SELFIEs for you to understand the difference.

Connectivity in LTE and Wi-Fi Speeds have also been improved, with LTE Advanced twice as fast at up to 300Mb/s and 23 LTE bands now supported, when you compare these figures to older generation of iPhones you will see that the new phones are twice faster in connectivity to Wi-Fi and with speeds up to 866 Mb/s.

Apple sold 13 million on launch weekend only and had already made its record compared to its iPhone 6 and 6Plus launch in 2014, I will be checking the unlocked versions and similarity and options of how to buy and where to buy best in the next article please follow us to be informed.
