Finally the much talked about iPhone 6S that was hyped all year was on Wednesday launched by smartphone giant, Apple.
The iPhone 6S is the 9th generation of the company’s famous smartphone, the iPhone. Although it’s not too different from the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 of last year, the new 6S features a better camera as well as some “touchy-feely tricks.”
Of course, those of us already used to how Apple does its things won’t be surprised at how the Cupertino-based smartphone giant will massively promote the new device the coming weeks. You bet Apple is going to flood you with ads as it tries to tell the world how much effort has been put into making the 6S one of the best iPhones the world has ever seen.
What’s the difference?
The 6S is a bit thicker than the 6; but the difference isn’t that much. Other than that, it’s not too different and has similar rounded edge edges, buttons, and 4.7-inch screen that you can also find on its predecessor.
On the camera front, Apple went a step further this time with new camera modules on the front and the back; this will blow your mind.
Apple didn’t leave selfie lovers out of its plans though—the front camera now has a major upgrade to deal with the crazy demand for selfies. The front camera now has a larger sensor that has the ability to take 1080p video or 5MP stills. Apple didn’t overlook the software that controls the camera as it also got a revamp. What that means is that you will now be able to take ‘selfie panorama,’ slow-motion video, and use the phone’s screen as a makeshift flash.
On to the back, as the 6S will let you take a much better stills with a new 12-megapixel camera. You will also be able to capture 4K video.
Apple TV and iPad Pro
Wednesday’s launch wasn’t about the 6S alone as the Cupertino-based company introduced the new Apple TV and iPad Pro. The new Apple TV streaming-media box and a larger iPad Pro will both offer a refreshing break from what you have been used to.
The new Apple TV is the company’s first update in three years; and is coming on the heels of Apple’s efforts at repositioning itself as a market leader for streaming-TV boxes.
The company also announced a drop in the price of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus by $100 on Wednesday.
