General News Apple iPhone 6s vs iPhone 6: What’s new

Last year, Apple introduced a big change by launching the first ever large iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 was extremely different in size and shape when compared to all its predecessors, and created quite a tizzy among tech enthusiasts. Now, Apple haslaunched the successor of the iPhone 6 yesterday, and this time it has focused on specs overhaul. The iPhone 6s may not have upgraded itself so much in terms of design, but has significantly improved in other aspects. Here’s everything that is different in the iPhone 6s from its predecessor iPhone 6.

3D Touch
Let’s start with the big lion at the event last night. Apple showcased 3D Touch, or what is commonly known as Force Touch, as a big highlight. First seen on the Apple Watch and the new 12-inch Macbooks, this feature now lets the iPhone 6s sense how much pressure a user applies to the display. There’s new gesture modes like Peek and Pop which brings in a lot of new functionality. Peek lets you steal a look at content on the iPhone without really opening it up in full view. For example, if there is a link shared on Twitter, Peek allows users to just see the top of the page in Safari without leaving Twitter. However, if you deep press it, the Pop feature will open the link up in full-view.

Apple has decided to finally amp up its megapixel game with the iPhone 6s. The smartphone sees a 12-megapixel iSight camera with advanced Focus Pixel technology, a new image signal processor and improved local tone mapping. Apple has also introduced Live Photos which basically captures together moments just before and after a photo is taken, with movement and sound. While looking at these photos in Gallery, they look like normal photos, but just by pressing anywhere on the photo, they come to life. Another big addition is 4K capabilities while shooting video.

Talking about the FaceTime camera, there is a 5-megapixel front camera which also comes with the Live Photos feature and the ability to detect motion like a giggle, the hint of a dimple, or a look of wonder. One big talking point is the Retina Flash in the front for better low light selfies. Essentially the display lights up when you are clicking a selfie to provide a well lit shot. We have seen this feature in the Moto G earlier but Apple has differentiated it as the display lights up like a True Tone flash giving the best possible tone to photos.

With the new iPhone 6s comes a new A9 chip. The third-generation A9 chip comes with 64-bit architecture. The company claims that it improves overall CPU performance by up to 70 percent, and boosts graphics performance by up to 90 percent compared to the previous generation. The M9 motion co-processor is also integrated directly into the A9 chip for optimal battery performance. It also enables activation of Siri easily by saying “Hey Siri” whenever your iPhone 6s is nearby, making it always available even if you don’t have the phone in your hand.

Rose Gold
Apple, for the first time, has introduced the new rose gold variant with the iPhone 6s. Now the phone comes in four color options – silver, space gray, gold and the new rose gold.

Weight and Dimensions
The iPhone 6s is thicker and heavier than the iPhone 6, possibly to avoid the repeat of ‘bendgate’. The iPhone 6s weighs 143 grams, while the iPhone 6 weighs 129 grams. In terms of thickness, the iPhone 6s is 7.1mm thin, while the iPhone 6 is 6.9mm.
