Apple iPhone 6S release date, price and features.

iPhone 6S is Apple’s name for the new iPhone..  not the iPhone 7 as some News Sources reported.

Is it the big upgrade that Apple fans expected?

Answer: Possibly.

The iPhone 6s has faster performance, a 3D Touch screen and a significantly improved camera.

Is it enough of an upgrade and the right price to warrant trading in your old phone?

Let’s take a look at the details.

We’ll start with the iPhone 6S price.

The iPhone 6S price is $649 in the US, £539 in the UK and AU$1,079 in Australia. It’ll be $199 in the US on a two-year contract.

That’s on the 16GB model which. The iPhone 6S in the 64GB model is reported to be  $749 (£619, AU$1,229) and 128GB is $849, £699 and AU$1,379.

iPhone 6S – Will it bend

iPhone 6S features more a slightly thicker chassis and a higher grade of aluminium meaning #Bendgate should remain firmly in the past.

3D Touch not Force Touch

As expected the iPhone 6S has included multi-touch although it is not called Force Touch as expected, but 3D Touch. The concept seems to be the same as the Apple Watch’s Force Touch but until we have it in our hands to compare we can’t be sure.

3D Touch is set to change our gaming experience on the new iPhone with developers making use of the new multitouch technology.

 

iPhone 6S new camera

The iPhone 6S will include a new 12MP camera sensor and Videos will record in 4K, with 8 million pixels on the rear camera. The forward facing camera will be 5MP.

Significant speed increase.

Apple claims that the Wi-Fi is twice as fast as its predecessor.

The iPhone 6S specs include the new A9 processor.

We are not sure how much RAM will be on board the new handset yet but I am sure we won’t have to wait too long for the full specifications

 

Release Date

The iPhone 6S release date is Friday, September 25 in several  countries, including the US, UK and Australia.
