All About The New iPhones: iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

After many rumors and speculation that filled the Internet in recent weeks, Apple finally announced the new and most anticipated smartphone to the public – the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in a live event on September 9, 2015.

As we have already predicted, the Taptic engine offering the Force Touch feature also known as the “3D Touch” in the new iPhones is one of the highlights. With this feature, users can enjoy different pressure levels on the screen, resulting in a different action for each intensity applied. Also other features like improved camera with 12 MP, support for recording 4K videos, Apple A9 processor with integrated co-processor M9 and a new color “Rose Gold” were confirmed.

What exactly is 3D Touch?

This feature is what Apple calls the “new generation Multi-Touch”, a feature that is already in the market long ago and was introduced by the Apple itself. 3D Touch allows users to interact in new ways with the display, going far beyond the simple touch. Now, the screen can feel the pressure, behaving differently depending on the intensity applied to the glass layer.

The 3D Touch will find use in various applications and system functionality. In the email, for example, you can have a message from the preview just resting your finger on it. Slide your finger in this position gives access to other functions – and that even without opening its contents. Strengthening a little more touch on the display, the message is opened, revealing the traditional view.


During conversations in messengers, it is possible to preview the various types of links. You received a flight number? The 3D Touch gives access to the details of that trip. An address? The feature allows the user to view that location on the map without leaving the conversation. A web link? Gives to “open” a page without running Safari.

Another highlight of this feature is its interaction with applications. Without opening the camera app, you can choose the option of taking selfies, record a video or capture a scene in slow motion. In the messenger, can you select one of the favorite contacts to write the text. In Maps, receive direction home, mark your position, send your location or search for nearby places with a simple touch on the screen.


The Performance

The promise of the new chip A9 is to bring a new level of performance and efficiency for the iPhone and the iPhone 6s 6s Plus. According to Apple, since the launch of the first unit of the line, there was a 70% increase in overall performance. When it comes to the quality of graphics, the mark rises to 90% increase.

The new iPhone, the third generation of Apple chip with 64-bit architecture promises even better performance for the activities of everyday life. For this, the devices feature a new integrated coprocessor, the M9, which equips the chip natively and provides even faster performance to the system. This component has a number of sensors – accelerometer, compass, gyroscope and compass – to record all user activity. Its operation is so efficient that it allows the use of Siri – by “Hey Siri” – even without touching iphone.


The Camera


The main camera of the iPhone now has a resolution of 12 MP and is capable of recording videos in 4K. In addition to recording, the smartphone is still able to edit these recordings through the iMovie application, allowing users to send these videos directly to YouTube with this super-resolution. The device also has the traditional capture modes Burst Mode, time-lapse and slow motion.

One of the main camera features is the way it works with photos, turning them into “living” files. Live Photos is a feature that allows the catch is performed as small GIFs, showing a few seconds before and after the photography record. The feature is enabled by default, not requiring users to do something to be able to abuse this novelty.


The front camera also won new features, getting a 5MP. The highlight here is the Retina Flash, Screen Retina use like a flash to selfies in the dark. And do not think this means just use the screen brightness standard: a new chip makes the intensity of light emitted by the display increases up to three times, allowing for amazing photos record even in unfavorable conditions.

Touch ID


The fingerprint sensor Apple reached the second generation. On both iPhone, the Touch ID is faster than ever you need, ensuring maximum speed and protection for purchases through Apple Pay and endorsements for use of smartphones.

The Design

Despite not having received visual changes, the new iPhone also received improvements in its construction. Now a new aluminum – dubbed the 7000 series – involves the devices, ensuring greater protection and resistance. This means that new iPhones especially iPhone 6s Plus will hardly bend when they are placed in the pocket.


The iPhone and iPhone 6s 6s Plus enter into pre-sales in some countries until the 12th of September. The official launch was scheduled for the 25th. However, Apple promises that this will happen by the end of the year. In the US, the iPhone will be sold from $ 649 and $ 749.
