IPhone 6S

Design and Display

The iPhone 6s appears no different from iphone 6, It’s slightly bulkier and heavier than its older sibling, but this isn’t noticeable without a scale and ruler. This is an S year, after all, when Apple forgoes radical design changes and instead polishes what it released the year before.You get the same 750 x 1334 display as last year’s model, with the same 326 ppi pixel density. Next to the ludicrously high resolution screens of the competition’s top smartphones, you might think we’d be underwhelmed

3D Touch

The big, headline-grabbing element of the iPhone 6S is the new way you can interact with the phone. Instead of being limited to swiping up, down, left and right, now you can actually go INTO THE SCREEN.
Sadly, it’s not like a mobile version of Tron (notes down idea for screenplay) but the iPhone 6S is able to measure the force with which you push the screen and thus can react accordingly.

Camera of iPhone 6S

A kudoz goes to the iPhone 6S is to the camera – not just the 12MP sensor that’s packed in there, but the fact that pictures have now been imbued with magic. Live Photos, which is enabled by default (but can be easily toggled off with a switch in the bottom corner of the screen) adds a sprinkling of Harry Potter to your snaps by taking a 1.5 second video before and after the snap, recording a cheeky a bit of audio as well.IPhone 6S DisplayThe front-facing Facetime HD camera is probably the biggest upgrade within the phone, in terms of raw output. Up from –IPhone XS Max– 1.2MP to 5MP, the new sensor takes some great self portraits, with clarity and definition all over the place.

Hardware and processor

Apple’s new A9 chip decimated our benchmark tests. Its Geekbench 3 scores were solid, if not quite as impressive as what we’ve come to expect from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chips. Its 3D Mark scores, on the other hand, were several thousand points higher than the competition. Iphone 6s as a A9 chip inside, meaning that it sports a dual-core 1.8GHz processor.

It runs an Os of iOS 9, which is upgradable to iOS 11.3

Apple Pay (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX certified)

Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service by Apple Inc. that lets users make payments using an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac.
You can make secure purchases in stores, in apps, and on the web. And now you can send and receive money from friends and family right in Messages.


Apple decided to downsize the battery in the iPhone 6s. Iphone 6 packed 1810 mAh of power storage; but this time you only get a 1715 mAh cell. Fortunately, the downgrade doesn’t have a negative effect on performance.

Touch ID

The TouchID sensor, built into the home button, reads users’ fingerprint to allow them quickly into their phone — and has had huge improvements in the new phones. It has been so improved that it is unlocking people’s phones before they get to see the home screen, some people have complained.Iphone 6S Touch IDIPhone 6s comes with a new Touch ID sensor and it’s insanely fast. If you want to check notifications on your lock screen, it’s a race against Touch ID; your iPhone will unlock if you don’t take your finger off the sensor fast enough. It’s easier to use the sleep/wake button or a finger your haven’t registered with Touch ID if you want to just see the lock screen.
