The iPhone XSiPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR  were the 2018 iteration of the iPhone

The Design

The iPhone 6S comes in a bit thicker and heavier than its predecessor at 7.1 millimetres and 143 grams respectively, compared to the iPhone 6’s 6.9 millimetres and 129 grams. Otherwise, they look identical to the eye.

The upgraded version features a more sturdy construction with the use of new 7000 Series aluminium alloy, the same super-durable material used in the aerospace industry.

iPhone 6 was available in space grey, gold and silver, while iPhone 6S will add a rose gold model. However, with the launch of the iPhone 6S, Apple says iPhone 6 will no longer be available gold colours

The Display

The same 4.7-inch Retina HD display seen on the iPhone 6 is also retained on the new version of the device. However, Apple iPhone 6S boasts a new-generation Multi-Touch technology called 3D Touch, which redefines how you interact with the display.

This technology, a variation of the Force Touch available on the new Huawei Mate S, is able to sense how hard you press the display to allow you carry out different types of operations.

You can use the 3D Touch access your voicemail, start apps and access the iPhone 6S’s selfie camera, amongst other functions.

You may also consider the iPhone 8 Plus.

The Cameras

The cameras are perhaps the most noticeable advancement in the new iPhone 6S. For years, Apple has provided an 8-megapixel rear camera on its iPhones. The tech giant has opted to boost that snapper to 12-megapixel this time – a good idea given 13-megapixel and higher pixel shooters have been appearing on rival flagship smartphones.

The new iSight camera, which delivers awesome shots, can also record stunning 4K videos at 30 frames per second. The FaceTime selfie snapper has also received a significant bump to 5 megapixels, up from 1.2 megapixels, and now comes with Retina Flash for more lovely selfies in all light conditions.

Retina Flash, brightens the screen so that it can be used as flash when taking selfies.

Hardware and Software

Apple iPhone 6S is equipped with a more robust and newer A9 processor. The 64-bit chip is faster and more energy efficient. It runs about 70 percent faster than iPhone 6’s A8 chip with graphics performance boosted by 90 percent.

The iPhone 6S is expected to be the first iPhone to come with 2 GB of RAM, though it has not been confirmed yet. Apple iPhone 6S will run on the latest iOS 9 operating system with new advanced features and more powerful built-in apps.

The more recent iPhone 7 features the A10 Fusion, which Apple claims is 40% faster.

Miscellaneous Specs

The new iPhone features second-generation and faster Touch ID fingerprint scanner for enhanced security. iPhone 6S will be available in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB versions just like its predecessor.

The smartphone comes with faster wireless connectivity options – 4G LTE Advanced, Wi-Fi with MIMO and Bluetooth 4.2. Apple iPhone 6S may offer better battery life, thanks to tweaks to the latest iOS 9 on which it runs.
