iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus with 3D Touch


Apple announced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus during today's "Hey Siri" event. The new iPhones feature new 3D Touch, a variant of the Force Touch technology introduced on the touchpad for MacBook. The device will also include significant camera improvements 12MP instead of 8MP), new Live Photos, faster Touch ID, the new A9 processor with embedded M9 motion coprocessor.

3D Touch is a new feature for navigating iPhones. It allows users to take peeks at content, pull up context-specific information, and developers will be able to employ it for apps and games.

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be available in gold, silver, space grey and the new rose gold metallic finishes.


iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will both feature 12 megapixel sensors, and for the first time, iPhone is able to take 4K video, and edit it directly on their iPhones. The front camera is also bumped up to a 5 megapixel sensor with a new feature called Retinal Flash. Retinal Flash uses the display as a flash that matches the ambient color of your surroundings.

But Apple is also introducing its own payment system that allows users to buy an unlocked iPhone 6s for $32 per month. It's a 24 month deal, but users will be allowed to upgrade every year.
