What’s New – iPhone 6s Full phone specification, iPhone 6s Features, iPhone 6s Guide

California Cupertino giant recently announced its ninth-generation iPhones, namely the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus as expected, at an iPhone Launch event in San Francisco, California on September 9, 2015.

Apple CEO Tim Cook explained these two new iPhone as “While they may look familiar, we have changed everything about these new iPhones.” These two iPhones are similar to their predecessors in terms of their shape and size but new iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus powers new CPU, Operating system (Which is iOS 9), a new 12 Megapixel camera and many more things like Multi-touch feature.

iPhone 6s and  iPhone 6s Plus vs iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

iPhone 6s Full phone specification, iPhone 6s Features, iPhone 6s Guide

  • Both new Apple iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus are of same sizes 7 and 5.5-inch Retina displays,
  • Also the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus have the same exterior design as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus,
  • The new camera in both iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus is improved from 8 Megapixel to 12 megapixel.
  • Apple iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus has updated and new Technologies like Touchscreen, fingerprint scanner, vibration engine.
  • iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus are made from an entirely new material, which is hard and more durable then iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus

Apple said that they have used “a 7000 Series aluminium alloy, which is stronger and more durable than the 6000 series used in the previous-generation iPhones.” The new glass used for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Screens is stronger glass, and made using a dual ion exchange process.  Apple’s also updated the devices with  One of the biggest changes is the introduction of a new aluminium finish in Rose Gold, which accompanies the traditional Silver, Space Gray, and Gold color options.

The new second-generation Touch ID in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus consists of four major technologies; Laser-cut sapphire crystal, Stainless steel detection ring, Capacitive single-touch sensor, Tactile switch. Second-generation Touch ID  makes fingerprint detection twice as fast in iPhone 6s and  iPhone 6s Plus.

iPhone 6s and  iPhone 6s Plus powers the 64-bit A9 processor. Due to this reason, iPhone 6s and  iPhone 6s Plus devices are 70 percent faster at CPU tasks and 90 percent faster at GPU tasks than the A8 processor in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. A built-in M9 motion coprocessor enables new features, such as always-on “Hey Siri” functionality.

The M9 motion coprocessor is integrated directly into the A9 chip so you can do more, for longer periods of time, with great performance and battery life. The M9 connects to the accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, and barometer for a wide range of fitness tracking capabilities.

To provide the nuanced effect of force being gradually applied and removed, 3D Touch detects a dynamic range of pressure to a microscopic degree.  Apple has expanded iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Multi-Touch feature through a 3D Touch feature, and Apple is calling this “the future of Multi-Touch.” Apple iPhone 3D Multi-Touch recognizes the pressure you apply in addition to the familiar Multi-Touch gestures you already use.  It even accounts for changes in gravity as you hold your phone. A new Taptic Engine provides tactile feedback whenever the pressure-based gestures are used.

Whenever Apple announces its iPhone’s “S” upgrades, you can guess most of the updates and improvements apple will include. Some of those are camera improvements, and for now both devices iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have a 12-megapixel camera with some internal improvements. Same as iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, new iPhone 6s Plus has Optical Image Stabilization, while the iPhone 6s does not.

Both new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus has improved cameras: some of the camera features are:

  • iPhone now supports 4K video at 30 FPS,
  • Both iPhones can capture 63 megapixel panoramas.
  • Both iPhone 6s and 6s Plus boost a 5-megapixel front-facing FaceTime camerawith a True Tone Retina Flash feature that lights up the display of the iPhone just before a photo is captured. So, new iPhone’s now have even more great cameras.

Both iPhone 6s and 6s Plus has improved LTE and Wi-Fi speeds With LTE Advanced, LTE is twice as fast at up to 300 Mb/s, and 23 LTE bands are supported. Compared to the previous-generation iPhones, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s plus are twice as fast when connected to Wi-Fi, with Wi-Fi speeds up to 866 Mb/s.

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus became available for pre-order in the first wave of countries on Saturday, September 12 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time, with an official launch taking place on Friday, September 25.

Design – iPhone 6s Full phone specification, iPhone 6s Features, iPhone 6s Guide

Both new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus come in two sizes: 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, like their predecessors iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. iPhone 6s and  iPhone 6s Plus have same exteriors and design, rounded corners, antenna bands, the only difference between new and older iPhone’s regarding their body is that the newer ones are much more stronger and have more color options, because they’re made from a stronger aluminium alloy.

Apple first introduced its 7000 Series aluminium alloy in the Apple Watch, and in. As Compared to the 6000 Series aluminium which apple used in its iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, the 7000 Series aluminium alloy is stronger, and more durable, and less malleable.

The reason behind apple switching over to 7000 Series aluminum alloy, may be due to the bend-gate controversy, or due to some construction break-points. So, to counter those errors and weak points and to make sure that no such issues would occur again, apple used  and reinforced 7000 Series aluminum alloy, which is stronger and harder than 6000 series aluminium alloy. Some iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users saw their iPhones bend when placed in a pocket, an issue that should come up much more rarely with the reinforced body.

This time Sizes are bigger and thicker than previous versions. The main reason behind this is apple added 3D Touch technology also known as Multi-Touch and the use of 7000 Series aluminum. The iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus are slightly thicker, taller, and heavier than their previous-generation counterparts.

The iPhone 6s is 7.1 mm thick and it weighs 143 grams, while the iPhone 6 was 6.9 mm thick and weighed 129 grams. The iPhone 6s Plus is 7.3 mm thick and weighs 192 grams, while the iPhone 6 Plus was 7.1mm thick and weighted 172 grams. Both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are 0.1 to 0.2 mm taller and wider.

Rose Gold iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus

Apple gave one more extra color option to its buyers introducing Rose Gold color option for the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. So, this is the only major difference between the new and older iPhones which you can really spot it. If you exempt this color from iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models then you can’t really tell whether someone is using iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s.

3D Touch  

3D Touch works throughout iOS 9 to make the things you do every day more natural and intuitive. There are so many ways that simply pressing deeper can make whatever you’re doing a better experience.

Using 3D Touch to do more with your iPhone is as simple as pressing the display. But what’s happening underneath the surface is a sophisticated process. To provide the nuanced effect of force being gradually applied and removed, 3D Touch detects a dynamic range of pressure to a microscopic degree. It even accounts for changes in gravity as you hold your phone.

If you’re taking photos and want to see the shots you’ve already taken, you can get a Peek simply by pressing lightly on the thumbnail image.

If you decide you want to open a photo, just press a little deeper to Pop into it. From there you can share, edit, favorite, or delete.

 

3D Touch helps you get through the email in your inbox more quickly and efficiently. To Peek at a message, just press it lightly.

 

Quick Actions let you do the things you do most often faster and in fewer steps. You can start a message to your favorite contacts. Or instantly bring up the camera to snap a selfie. Or immediately get directions home. Many of these actions can even be done with a single press, right from the Home screen.

If you want more than a Peek, press a little more deeply to Pop into the message for a full view — just as if you’d tapped to open it from your inbox.

Swipe up to get things done. When you Peek into content, you can simply swipe up to bring up a menu of commonly used actions. For example, swipe up in Safari to copy a link, open a page in a new tab, or add a site to your Reading List.

Start shooting video, selfies, and more with just one press. Press the Camera icon on the Home screen, and you can immediately snap a selfie, shoot a video, or even go straight into a camera mode such as slo-mo.

Press lightly on the link and the location will appear on top of the screen. Stop pressing and you’ll return to the screen where you found the address.

Taptic Engine

iPhone 6S and 6s plus taptic engine

When using 3D Touch Peek and Pop gestures, a new Taptic Engine built into the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus provides tactile feedback for guidance, making users aware of what action has been taken and what can be expected.

The new Taptic Engine also powers all of the vibrations for alerts, alarms, and notifications, so the feel of the vibrations in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will feel different from the vibrations in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Battery Life

The iPhone 6s has a 1715 mAh battery, which is smaller in capacity than the 1810 mAh battery that was in the iPhone 6. The exact capacity of the battery in the larger iPhone 6s Plus is not yet known, but it’s believed that device also includes a smaller battery, with rumors placing it at 2750 mAh compared to the 2915 mAh battery in the iPhone 6 Plus.

Apple may have used a smaller battery to make room for vital 3D Touch components in the new iPhones, both of which include a new part called a “Taptic Engine.” The Taptic Engine provides haptic feedback for 3D Touch gestures and also powers the vibrations for alarms and notifications.

Though there’s a smaller battery in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, efficiency improvements introduced with the A9 chip and other performance enhancements have resulted in the two devices offering the same battery life as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

The iPhone 6s offers up to 14 hours of talk time, 10 days of standby time, 11 hours of video playback, 10 hours of Internet use on LTE. The iPhone 6s Plus offers 24 hours of talk time, 16 days of standby time, 14 hours of video playback, and 12 hours of Internet use on LTE.

A9 Processor

Apple iPhone 6S and 6s plus camera A9 processor

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are powered by a next-generation A9 chip that offers faster performance while also being more energy efficient, cutting down on overall power usage. The A9 is 70 percent faster at CPU tasks and 90 percent faster at GPU tasks than the A8 in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which was already an impressive chip.

For the first time, the A9 chip includes a built-in M9 motion coprocessor. The motion coprocessor, first introduced with the iPhone 5s, is the chip that captures motion-based data from the compass, accelerometer, and gyroscope to power Apple’s health and fitness capabilities without significant power drain.

 

In the past, the motion coprocessor has been a separate chip, not integrated as the M9 is into the A9. Building the M9 into the A9 allows it to be powered on all the time, facilitating the launch of an expanded “Hey Siri” feature. With the iPhone 6 and older iPhones, saying “Hey Siri” activates Siri whenever the iPhone is plugged into power.

With the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, “Hey Siri” can be used at any time to activate Siri vocally, even when the iPhone is not charging. It’s a small convenience factor that prevents users from needing to press the home button to get Siri’s attention.

The M9 motion coprocessor in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is also able to measure walking and running pace in addition to steps, distance, and elevation changes.

RAM

Apple never reveals the amount of RAM in its devices, but rumors ahead of the launch of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus suggested the new iPhones are equipped with 2GB of RAM, which was later confirmed by data discovered in Xcode.

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Camera

Apple iPhone 6S and 6s plus camera
Apple iPhone 6S and 6s plus camera

There’s a 12-megapixel iSight rear camera in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, a significant upgrade from the 8-megapixel camera in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. With more megapixels, the iPhones are able to capture more detail in photos for crisper images. Auto focusing speeds are also improved, and there’s a new image signal processor that offers better noise reduction and improved tone mapping.

According to Apple, increasing the megapixels of the iSight camera has not resulted in any downgrades to image quality like color bleeding, artifacts, or noise, thanks to precise placement of color filters and “Deep Trench Isolation,” which adds small barriers between each pixel so the colors can’t bleed into one another to affect color accuracy.

With the 12-megapixel camera, it’s now possible to capture 63-megapixel panoramas. Optical Image Stabilization, a feature introduced in the iPhone 6 Plus, continues to be available in the iPhone 6s Plus, and it’s expanded to work with video. Optical Image Stabilization is not available in the smaller iPhone 6s.

Video

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus can capture 4K video at 30FPS for the first time, allowing iPhone users to take videos with incredible levels of detail. 4K video joins 240FPS Slo-mo video and Time-Lapse video, both features introduced in past-generation devices. Time-Lapse video gains new stabilization features with the new iPhones.

When taking 4K video, it’s also possible to take 8-megapixel still photos at the same time.

FaceTime Camera

There’s a 5-megapixel FaceTime front camera in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, which is a significant improvement over the 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Selfie shots are crisper and more detailed than ever with the upgrade, and there’s a new True Tone Retina Flash that works with the front-facing camera.

Retina Flash causes the display of the iPhone to flash brightly just ahead of when a picture is snapped, improving selfies in low light. The Retina Flash is three times as bright as the standard display thanks to a custom display chip, and it’s been engineered to match the ambient light, just like Apple’s rear-facing True Tone flash.

Live Photos

Apple ntroduces Live Photos in it’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus, a new way to relive your favorite memories. It captures the moments just before and after your picture and sets it in motion with just the press of a finger.

With Live Photos, you can turn those instants into unforgettable living memories. At the heart of a Live Photo is a beautiful 12‑megapixel photo. But together with that photo are the moments just before and after it was taken, captured with movement and sound. These short animations are also displayed when flicking through images in the Camera Roll.

Every photo taken with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus with either camera is a Live Photo by default, but the feature can be turned off in the Camera app. Live Photo images are JPGs, not videos, and can be displayed on MacBooks running OS X El Capitan, iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches.

Live Photos add a new element of wonder to your still photos with motion and sound. Relive moments of joy, surprise, and excitement simply by pressing a Live Photo.

  • You can also set Live Photos as photo face on an Apple Watch running watch OS 2, and the short animation will play each time the wrist is raised.
  • Live Photos can also be set as a Lock screen wallpaper on the iPhone, where it will animate when pressed.
  • Apple also made available APIs for the Live Photos feature and these API’s are available to developers.
