No surprises here as Apple announces the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus.
“The most advanced smartphones in the world”
Apple CEO Tim Cook seemed very proud of the work the company did on the new iPhones. Apart from the expected spec bumps, the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus are equipped with what Apple calls the 3D Touch – it is essentially Force Touch. The same technology Apple introduced on the Apple Watch and the 2015 MacBook where the surface of the screen is able to detect pressure and launch a different command based on the intensity of the press.
4K video also makes its way to the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S plus thanks to the much improved iSight camera which now has 12 megapixels. Speaking of camera, Apple also introduces a feature similar to Lumia’s Living Images. With 3D Touch, press longer on a photo and it will move. Apple explains you don’t have to do anything different. Just take a photo like you normally would and the camera will automatically extend the image its capturing to create the live photos.
