“The only thing that’s changed is everything”
Are you thinking of buying a new phone?
Since the iPhone 6s has just been released, you might want to consider this as one of your options. To make your choice easier, Lifestyle brings you some of the iPhone 6s’s most prominent features:
1 – Force touch/3D touch
Force touch was first introduced in this year’s MacBook releases, and now found its way to the new iPhone 6s. According to bgr.com, “Apple’s new iPhones are able to recognize three levels of touch pressure. This allows the user to perform different actions based on the amount of pressure applied with a tap.”
Light taps are registered differently from harder taps, which allows you to do different things and enhance your iPhone experience.
2 – Live Photos
The new iPhone records several seconds before and after you take a photo, which brings your images to life. All it takes to view it then, is to force touch the photo.
3 – 4K recording, advanced camera, front facing camera screen flash
IPhone 6s’s back camera now contains 12 megapixels and can shoot in 4K. Also, low-light performance has been enhanced.
The front-facing camera is now upped to 5 megapixels and is accommodated for better selfies, since the mobile screen is now used as a flash in low-light environments.
4 – 7000 series aluminum
Apple has finally resolved the bending issue by enhancing the material used on the phone’s design. It is now made out of 7000 series aluminum, a material that isn’t likely to bend like with the previous iPhone.
5 – Enhanced performance
The new iPhone now contains 2GB ram and a faster A9 chip. The A9 chip features a “unique tri-core architecture that’s 70% faster than the A8 [chip that is used in the previous generation model], with a 90% faster GPU,” according to bgr.com.
6 – New color addition
Since Apple decided to stick to the older iPhone model’s design, the only way you can tell the two phones apart design-wise, is through a new added color to the iPhone family, the rose gold.
7 – Live Wallpapers
The new iPhone 6s features animated wallpapers. Although that’s nothing entirely new, it is a small but interesting detail Apple has decided to add.
8 – Faster finger scanner
While fingerprint sensors of previous iPhone generations seem to work pretty well, Apple decided to enhance its scanning and unlocking speed, allowing a smoother user-experience.
9 – “Hey Siri”
Siri keeps getting better and better. Now, Siri will be looking out for a “Hey Siri” call to activate and answer to your commands and questions.
According to the official Apple website, the iPhone 6s price is set from $649 for the 16GB model, and $749 for the iPhone 6s plus 16GB model as well.
