"iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are the most advanced iPhones ever and the most advanced smart phone in the world” says Tom Cook
Apple has unveiled its iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus smartphones, boasting of advanced 3D Touch technology for improved screen interactions and camera lens that can shoot 4K video.
The iPhone 6S retains the same dimensions and 4.7in screen size as the original model, while the iPhone 6S Plus has the same 5.5in screen as the original model come which now comes in four colours, rose-gold colour, silver, gold and space grey all with a retina HD displays made from the strongest glass on any smartphone and 7000 series aluminium.
Apple also showed off what it called 'live photos' that adds movement to photos, essentially creating a short video or gif clip as well as the photo. The phone will just capture the moment as it takes a photo, with a second and a half either side of the main image, and does not take up any more space than a normal photo, Apple said.
A major new improvement is the 3D Touch what Apple's calling the multitouch interface used by its Force Touch technology, it offers more advanced interaction with the iPhone screens depending on how hard or gently you press the screen, two actions where associated with the 3D which was referred to as 'peek' and 'pop', so you can either bring up more information from within an app, by 'peeking' into it, or moving from one app to another - say from texts to maps - by 'popping' it, which opens by holding down an address for a certain length of time.
The biggest is the new version of the operating system for the iPhone and iPad which is the iOS 9, it has been in public beta since July and brings with it improved battery life, public transit information, improved search through Spotlight and Siri and an improved keyboard. iOS 9 also buffs up supporting iPads with a side-by-side view, picture-in-picture video, an app shortcut bar and two-finger cursor control while editing text.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are powered by a new tri-core A9 processor which is a smaller and more efficient chipset that offers better power consumption and increased power. Couple that with 2GB of RAM, Apple said it is 70 percent faster at CPU tasks and 90 percent faster for GPU tasks than the A8 chip. It also has a new M9 coprocessor that tracks movement information for health and fitness data.
iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S plus wireless technologies has faster Wi-Fi and advanced LTE, iPhone users can browse, download and stream content even faster. The new iPhones also support up to 23 LTE bands as the chip has also been improved to support speeds of up to 844Mbps.
