Apple iPhone 6s

Apple iPhone 6s- Introduction

Apple’s new iPhone 6S is the phone that can’t come as a lot of a surprise to many. Every odd-numbered age has yielded an “S” variant of the earlier year’s phone, offering a few upgrades to the handset but largely keeping the same design and chassis.

Well, Apple’s been decidedly kind and kept to the same pattern again – the iPhone 6S is almost same to 2014’s iPhone 6, to the point that we could barely tell the difference between the 2 in the hand, with a little extra thickness and weight to give you the clue that you’re holding a next-gen phone in your hand.

Like the aluminium, the Apple iPhone 6s display glass has also benefited from reinforcement and is now the very durable in the smartphone industry, Apple claims, thanks to a double ion-exchange in the manufacturing process.

Sadly, there’s no super High Resolution or 4K display on the iPhone 6s, as Apple is sticking securely with its Retina HD Display. With the competition present some breathtaking smartphone displays some may find it disappointing so Apple hasn’t upgraded its screen.

Text is sharp, color reproduction is accurate and the contrast ratio is great, but if you have been using the 6 for the past yr, there’s disappointingly nothing to really offer you by way of improvement.

Apple iPhone 6S’s design is well, the iPhone 6 with 0.2mm thickness and 14g more weight. That’s it. Everything more is same as last year released iPhone 6, with even the same cases from the last yr slipping snugly around its svelte form. Its display is 4.7-inches diagonally, but there are a series of subtle differences, namely in the use of new materials.

The Apple iPhone 6s is built from a new 7000 Series aluminium; an alloy Apple is eager to warn us is used in the aerospace industry. This is the stuff currently used in the Apple Watch Sports models, which the company claims is 60 percent stronger than standard alloys.

Apple iPhone 6s- 3D Touch

Apple iPhone 6s- 3D Touch

The big, headline-grabbing part of the Apple iPhone 6S is the new way you can communicate with the phone. Instead of being restricted to swiping up, down, left and right, now you can actually go INTO THE SCREEN. 3D Touch is littered throughout the iPhone 6S, and it’s almost a game to work out where Apple has enabled it. You can see movie previews, check out pictures you’ve just taken or manipulate the cursor on the screen with ease.

3D Touch is a type of pressure-sensitive technology which senses the depth of force you’re applying to the cover glass, which in turn triggers active feedback from that newly-installed Taptic engine. This means when pressing lightly you’ll feel a mini vibration while touch more deeply will generate a more substantial buzz.

It’s a neat system and easily the highlight of this new iPhone – and when the developers get their hands on it, it’s going to be a real champ when you’re able to do even more Crazy Candy Crushing.

Apple iPhone 6s- Camera

The Apple iPhone 6s has a new 12-megapixel iSight snapper and it is excellent. To test how much better it really is, we put it up towards the earlier iPhone 6 and there’s a noticeable difference between the two.

With the 6s, Apple has decided to upgrade the rear-facing camera for the first time since the iPhone 4s release in year 2011 when it leapt from 5MP to 8MP.

Apple have always opted out of trying to out-pixel the debate, with many rival devices gives more than double the megapixel power (Sony’s Xperia Z5’s 23MP, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge +s 16MP, HTC’sOne M9’s 20.7MP) claiming that adding pixels tends to degrade image quality.

The good news is that it’s much reliable than its predecessor. Thanks to the iSight sensor’s 50% more pixels, its autofocus is now speedy and more accurate, ACC to senior Vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller, resulting in less under blur and noise. The front-facing camera has also been raised from 1.2MP to 5MP for those all-important selfies.

Apple iPhone 6s– iOS 9

Apple iPhone 6s- iOS 9

The latest Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are the first iPhones to ship with new OS iOS 9, which is also now available to download for your older iOS devices to run on. If you personal an iPhone newer than the 4S, you can now download iOS 9, but you could easily encounter any quantity of problems and bugs with the software. The update process for an iPhone is normally smoother than any other phone.

If you haven’t yet tried it, iOS 9 offers up a number of decent augmentation designed to improve your 6s experience, including improved battery life, Maps, revamped Notes, and Wallet apps and a extra proactive, deep-search role for Siri.

Apple iPhone 6s- Battery

It might sound like an odd decision, but Apple has really made the battery smaller in their new phones. But, reducing the size of the power source doesn’t appear to have made much difference to its life. The battery life of Apple’s phones has never been that good, but at least the iPhone 6 managed to bring things up to the level of other Android phones.

At least the new version of iOS brings an enhanced battery saving mode (cunningly called Low Power Mode) which will turn off Siri listening to you all the time and background activity – but it’s not enough to make this an industry-leading battery by any stretch of the imagination.

Apple iPhone 6s- Verdict

If you’re someone stuck with the iPhone 5S or, whisper it, earlier, you’ll be badly wanting a new iPhone – and the iPhone 6S is the best Apple handset that’s ever been made. It’s not a big claim, though as if Apple didn’t make its best phone this year we’d have a really worrying situation at the Cupertino firm. The huge upgrade on offer is the 3D Touch interface, which quickly feels like second nature when you’ve used the phone for a few days.

Within minutes of getting it in your hands, this new touch tech feels like being you have been using all your life and it brings a whole new perspective to interacting with your phone.

The iPhone 6s gives many improvements over its predecessor and with 3D Touch, 4K video recording and Apple’s incredible new A9 processor this isn’t a minor update. If you’re due an upgrade and love all things Apple this is now the best iPhone money can buy.
