One of the things we were confident we’d see at Apple’s recent ‘Hey Siri!’ event would be the unveiling of a new iPhone, and we weren’t left disappointed. While both the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus look identical to their predecessors, there was a plethora of new features to get excited about. Here are just three reasons why the new iPhones should be your next smartphone upgrade.
Through 3D Touch, users now have new ways to interact with the device. The iPhone can now sense pressure, with different pressure levels unlocking new gestures. Press gently on the display to take a peek at a new photo or email, and press a little harder to go into the content itself. 3D Touch also enables users to use the new Quick Touch mode, which enables users to access some key settings and features from their home screen, without needing to venture into any apps.
Massive camera improvements
Through the introduction of Live Photos, iPhone 6S and 6S Plus users can capture the motions just before you take your snap, which you’ll certainly want to thanks to the improved 12-megapixel sensor that sits at the rear of both devices. 4K resolution video recording is now supported, and there’s a nifty 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash at the front of the device.
The new A9 chip is touted to offer 70% faster CPU and 90% GPU performance, which will also help keep your device running for longer between charges. Due to the new motion coprocessor, the M9 chip, both the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus can now run more tasks and features at lower power, so you get a better user experience at all times.
