Apple iPhone 6s Expert ReviewsWe have 2 expert review(s).
|| The chassis is stronger, the camera sharper, 4K video capture is present at last, and the performance noticeably quicker. The dimensions are ever so slightly thicker and if has a touch more weight, but WIRED could not tell the difference in day-to-day use and had to keep checking it was carrying the correct handset, the change is that subtle..

|| The camera is impressive, and rather than focusing on packing in loads of new pixels, Apple has instead focused on improving the technology behind it to produce top-quality images. On our first impressions, were amazed at just how good the quality is, and especially how good it is at white balancing even when compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 6....

The Apple iPhone has been around for quite a few years; its probably thee most famous smartphone ever and more than likely you have seen one or two knocking around.
With each iteration of the iPhone there are been small an incremental changes in design, performance and functionality as Apple dont seem to like the idea of playing around with what seems to be an extremely successful product.
The question is . In the mid cycle what is new and what has improved in the Apple iPhone 6S?
iPhone 6s Design
From the outside your hardly going to notice the difference between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6S but there are a few minor changes in the dimensions and materials used. The iPhone 6S has increased so very slightly in thickness from 6.9mm to 7.1mm and has added a 14 grams in weight.
With the release of the previous iPhone the iPhone 6 there were concerns over the integrity of the Aluminium case bending under pressure which was eventually know as Bend-gate.
Apple seemed to have addressed this issue by introducing an upgraded aluminium alloy called 7000 series Aluminium. There has been a number of tests performed on this new material and it significantly increases the phone strength and durability putting to bed any previous concerns.
iPhone 6s Screen / Display
In regards to the display on the iPhone 6s, Apple have pretty much stuck with the same specifications as the previous iPhone a 4.7 inch, 1334 x 750 IPS LCD with 326 PPI and 504 nits brightness however once again these is a physically unnoticeable but significant change witch is Apples new 3D touch.
Keeping this very simple and on point Apple have placed micro sensors behind the screen detecting slight changes and variations in pressure when the user touches the display. This new hardware is use to control the 3D touch function enabling the preview of images, emails, application shortcuts etc. without the App having to fully launch. For example pressing a little harder than usually on an unopened email with give you a quick preview of the message or doing the same on one of the App icons will produce a list of shortcuts instead of opening the App. It has been compared to the right click on a PC but in the long run has infinity more possibilities in terms of application.
iPhone 6s Specifications & Performance
Here is where we definitely do see an upgrade.
One of the little things which all add up and make a difference is the fingerprint sensor now unlocks the phone twice and face as before so you can save an extra half a second of your day. Does sound much but it make accessing the device that little snapper.
The Apple iPhone 6S is the fist iPhone ever to ship with 2GB of RAM and the benefits can be felt immediately increasing the speed of opening and returning to apps when multitasking which did suffer just a little with the previous 1GB on the iPhone 6.
The custom built A8 processor has been upgraded with the new more powerful A9 chip giving the iPhone 6s a boost of 70% in performance and the GPU receives and even bigger boost of about 90%. Now considering that the iPhone 6 could handle any game of the App store it will be interesting to see what this GPU is capable of in the future.
iPhone 6s Camera
With the camera we see an increase from 8mp to 12 mp on the rear and 1.5- 5mp on the front bringing even sharper images to the iPhone 6s. With this upgrade the Apple iPhone 6s now captures smooth and colourful 4k video with great detail. Of course Apple has stayed with the slightly larger pixel size to capture more light which help when trying to capture video or photo in slightly darker conditions.
All in all the Apple iPhone 6s has delivered some great but subtle changes in both hardware and software to produced a fantastic all round device which is fast, well built and great for capturing video or photos. The Apple iPhone 6s can definitely keep up with the competition.
