So, you’ve been waiting for the next new shiny thing to be released by Apple, well yesterday Apple released a few new updated products to their range such as the new iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Pro and a revamped Apple TV.
What Do We Know About The New iPhone?
The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be available in a range of colours (gold, rose gold, silver and space grey) and boasts a 4.7”/5.5” Retina HD display. Some new functionality would be 3D (Force) Touch which can be found on the Apple Watch and on some Mac trackpads – this will add pressure sensitive capability to the handset that will allow access to secondary menus and actions when you press and hold the screen.
An upgraded 12-megapixel rear facing camera has been added and the front facing camera has been upped from a 1.2-megapixel camera to a 5-megapixel camera to increase the quality of the selfies we all take.
Apple claims to have also upgraded the performance of the iPhone 6 and 6s by 70% compared with the previous version with their new proprietary 64-bit A9 processor.
They’ve taken note of the famous “bend-gate” incident where bums all over the world were managing to bend their new iPhones and are using aerospace grade aluminium and sturdier glass in these new models to hopefully deflect and customer complaints.
Live-Photos, iOS 9 and Touch ID have been added/improved to make the new handset even more desirable.
Should I Upgrade?
Whenever a new variant of a phone comes out this is always the big question, well as always it depends which phone you currently have.
If you have an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, the only big upgrade is to the camera. If you have an iPhone 5s or an earlier version of the iPhone the new 6s is going to feel completely different in your hand – faster, different design and much more powerful by comparison.
However, if you are already using a premium Android device, the new 6s range isn’t going to rock your world. Google’s voice assistant already outperforms Siri on search accuracy and the breadth of things it can do, and that will only expand with the next version of Android.
Ultimately, the iPhone 6s is looking like a nice incremental upgrade to the iPhone range. For the big changes it looks like we’ll all have to wait another year.
