iPhone 6s & iPhone 6s Plus

Since the launch of the sixth-generation iPhones on Tuesday 9th September, they have become the most popular and advanced models to date, with over 13 million sold within the first 3 days of release. “The only thing that has changed with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is everything,” claims Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. We take a look.

Design
The look of the new iPhones has more or less stayed true to the classic and iconic iPhone design. The updated models are available in silver, space grey, gold and rose gold and have been manufactured from 7000 series aluminum, making them the strongest iPhones to date. The iPhone 6s Plus also contains an larger 5.5 inch screen, marking Apple’s first attack on the lucrative ‘phablet’ market, while the iPhone 6s features a 4.7 inch display. With LG and Samsung both pushing innovative designs such as the LG G2, LG G Flex and Samsung GALAXY Round, Apple have upped their game with awesome Retina HD displays, ensuring superior definition and unrivalled viewing angles

Features
With a 12-megapixel sensor, a 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera and their new Live Photos feature, Apple has taken smartphone photography to a whole other level. Using captured moments before and after a photo is taken, the Live Photo feature allows you to transform still images into moving ones.
Another new feature introduced into these smartphones is 3D Touch, which allows interaction with your iPhone in completely different ways, allowing for new shortcuts and experiences while saving you time, whether you’re taking a selfie or sending an email.
With an extended battery life, third-generation 64-bit chip, a more rapid Touch ID and a new and improved Siri, the sixth generation iPhone has become stronger and faster, refined and enriched with a host of new functions.

Pricing
Vodafone and O2 both offer the lowest upfront cost whereas Virgin Mobile offers the lowest monthly cost for a 2 year contract. If buying outright, the 16GB storage option is priced at £539, the 64GB at £619 and 128GB will cost £699. The phones have been available since September 19th.
