Apple revealed its next gen 'S' upgrade to the already much popular and loved iPhone 6 last month. Though nothing has changed in from the outside (and I really didn't like it), the inside has been drastically changed.
In terms of Apple, 'The only thing that’s changed is everything'.
You can grasp all the major changes summed up below:
- 3D Touch
- 7000 series aluminium
- Strongest cover glass
- 64 bit A9 chip with M9
- 2nd generation Touch ID
- 12MP iSight camera
- 4K video
- 5MP FaceTime camera with Retina Flash
- Live Photos
3D touch - iPhone 6s introduces an entirely new way to interact with your phone. For the ﬁrst time, iPhone senses how much pressure you apply to the display. In addition to familiar Multi-Touch gestures like Tap, Swipe and Pinch, 3D Touch introduces Peek and Pop. This brings a new dimension of functionality to the iPhone experience. And when you use 3D Touch, your iPhone responds with subtle taps. So not only will you see what a press can do — you’ll feel it.
Strongest cover glass - The new glass on iPhone 6s is made using a special dual ion‑exchange process, which makes it stronger at a molecular level and the most durable in the smartphone industry.
12 MP iSight camera - For the first time after iphone 4S, Apple has finally made a jump in camera from 8MP to 12 MP this time. Though smartphones in the market presently boast 21MP for that matter, but its Apple which has confidence of saying its camera the best in the world of smartphones.
A9 with M9 - upto 70% faster CPU and 90% faster GPU performance.
5MP FaceTime camera with Retina flash - 5MP FaceTime HD camera includes Retina Flash to achieve perfectly lit selﬁes. When you use Retina Flash, a custom display chip drives the display to flash three times brighter than usual. Combined with True Tone technology, Retina Flash provides the perfect lighting for whatever environment you’re shooting in.
Live photos - Well this is something very basic but still a first. Its nothing but just a small video of 3 taken around your click, making you memory more deep, well sort of.
The prices are not officially out yet but we can expect the starting model of 16GB to be placed somewhere between 53500 to 56000 for iPhone 6 and for iPhone 6S will be around 72000. they are still indicative prices and I will update the prices once they are revealed.
Meanwhile, if you have no patience but money, you can head over to eBay and buy imported units of iPhone 6S starting above 60000 as of now for 16GB model in gold and silver colour.
