It’s everything you want from an iPhone: beautiful design, exciting new features, and a user-friendly operating system. And don’t forget: it’s less expensive than the newer models! Find out why it’s one of our favourite smartphones ever:
The iPhone 6s was the very first smartphone to be treated to Apple’s innovative Force Touch technology, and gave it a new name for the occasion: 3D Touch. The screen is now pressure-sensitive, and reacts to new touch patterns. It can understand how hard you’re pressing on the display and offer new functions accordingly.
For example, a long press on a link will make a small preview window pop up and show you what is on the page. You can simply return to your email by letting go - easy!
Do you find regular old photos boring? Apple has got something for you: the Live Photos feature, which enables you to record a few seconds of video before and after each picture you take. The feature is automatically activated, so you won’t need to set anything up. Just start shooting!
The camera has also been upgraded to 12 megapixels, allowing for better photo quality, colours, and sharpness - and the added video doesn’t compromise on this. One small drawback, however: if your iPhone 6s only has 16GB of storage, Live Photos will take quite a lot of space.
When it comes to design, the iPhone is king - but it also tends to be a little too fragile. This is why Apple made sure to build a stronger handset! The iPhone 6s might look identical to its predecessor, but it’s made of a much stronger material.
The iPhone 6s is made of “7000 series aluminium”, which stops it from bending, and the screen is now scratch-resistant. So don’t fear storing it in the same pocket as your house keys, it’ll be just fine.
