As rumored, first comes the new rose gold aluminum finish. in which the screens bring pressure-sensitive Force Touch. What Apple is calling 3D Touch comes in gold, silver and space gray.
Although for many the idea made no sense, the September keynote in which Apple introduced its new iPhone models and iPhone 6s 6s Plus has proven to be true. We already have a pink iPhone 6s!
The truth is that just under be viewed first hand one of the catches that we have taken the live event, but the pink you imagined, completely out of the philosophy of Apple, is not real jump. This is a rather elegant pink metallic tone in which the color can become so. I can say that it is more than likely that the new commitment in colors give sales a large female audience, or to become a complete failure as already happened to other brands tried. Only time will tell. Want to see the iPhone 6s pink?
Under the hood, is the vibrating “Taptic Engine,” similar to what you’ll find on the Apple Watch and some MacBook trackpads.
The new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus maintain the same design, respectively, of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are also available in the same colors of the iPhone 6, with the addition of the Gold Rosa, already extensively detailed in these last months. All models are made of aluminum alloy 7000 which ensures excellent resistance to pressure, the same used on Apple Watch Sports. The screen of the device is protected by a glass panel ION-X, also used Apple Watch Sports.
As per tradition, the “S” models, on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus improves the camera, and many more. We start from the back, now 12 megapixels, but that’s not all! Apple recalls that add pixels to a camera without “control” means to create noisy images and colors are not perfectly reproduced. For this reason, in addition to the evolution of megapixels, the new iPhone camera 6s also uses lenses brighter and an unspecified photographic apparatus improved in several ways (Phil Shiller: “No need to tell you how you, your iPhone camera 6s has improved in every respect “). As for video recording, the new iPhone 6s let you capture movies in 4K, but also, clearly, in 1080p and 720p. You can select all the camera settings.
Inside iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus beats the heart all over again: we are talking about the chip A9, once again produced by Apple and once more with 64-bit technology. It is a processor that improves performance by 70% over the A8 in the CPU tests, while the figure rises to 90% compared to graphics performance. Graphics performance that result in a level of quality apps and games never seen before. Also updated the coprocessor M9, now “always on” and that will instantly activate Siri simply by saying “Hey Siri”, even when the iPhone is not connected to a power outlet.
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be shipped with iOS 9 already on board. The new mobile operating system from Apple, which we have followed in its evolution since June, will add many new features: from the intelligent search and proactive, actually called “Proactive”, and then move on to a new multitasking, better interaction between the app, a sort of “back” button again from Android, interactive notifications open to all (yes, even in WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.) to respond instantly and from any screen, etc.
In short, the news of the iOS a9 a lot and we discussed in detail here, but there will be some exclusive to iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus: the first are the new animated backgrounds in style Apple Watch, then we also find that an improved multitasking through 3D Touch, it lets you move quickly between apps open in the background.
In addition, to facilitate the transition from Android to iOS, Apple includes a new app for the two systems to facilitate the passage of data.
