Apple fans waiting at a halt, as well as Apple’s competitors, some of whom feared that their sales phagocytosed by the new iPhone. Well, It is now official, the new smartphone, as expected takes the name of iPhone 6s.
The new iPhone is not really changed in terms of design, since the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus more resemble nothing so much as their predecessors, except for one detail: they are now available in a pink color, anodized aluminum. However, this box contains a screen Force Touch, which takes the commercial name of 3D Touch, which allows you to click gently or more strongly on elements. The advantage: a long press on the icon of an application (at least those that are compatible, like Facebook, Instagram, WeChat, Dropbox or Apple applications), access a drop-down menu that refers directly to specific features, all without leaving the host panels. This corresponds perfectly to 3D Touch Force proposed by Huawei, but under the trade name chosen by Apple to differentiate, as usual, from its competitors.
For the rest, the functionality of the iPhone 6 evolve, but gently. It retains its diagonal of 4.7 inches (5.5 inches for the iPhone 6s Plus), with a screen that promises twice as strong, but without mention of synthetic sapphire. Everything runs on iOS 9, latest version of the operating system, supports 4G Class 6-300 Mbps and offers significant improvements in terms of photography. We now find a 12-megapixel iSight sensor capable of, and this is again to shoot in 4K. However, the internal memory of the iPhone 6s is similar to that of their previous version, and therefore starts at 16GB, then up to 64 and 128 GB. In other words, mobile users playing videos will pay attention to the version of phone they choose. The sensor is improving but still there is no optical stabilization in the iPhone 6s, the remaining option reserved for the iPhone 6s Plus. On the software side, a kind of Zoe (seen in recent generations HTC) appears at Apple, which now offers video capture of a few seconds before and after picture onset, to record animated pictures. Interestingly, although this feature is well known on Android.
Apple promises to increase performance up logically. IPhone 6s and 6s Plus are indeed equipped with a A9 processor that promises much more efficient than the A8, particularly in terms of GPU. A coprocessor M9 is also included in the SoC, taking care to treat fitness data of the user, such a number of steps or calories burned. Note finally that Siri is not only accessible via pressing the Home key, but always listens to the user same as Voice feature on some Motorola Moto.
The new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available on September 25th with a price increase of 40 and 50 euros respectively compared to the iPhone 6 to discharge. So count a starting price set at a minimum of 749 euros for the iPhone 6s, and 859 euros for the iPhone 6s Plus.
