The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus haven’t been on the market long, yet Apple surprised us all with the release of the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus recently. It has been noted that the mobile giant only releases and announces new smartphone/s when their previous one has made enough sales to warrant additional releases.
Although the company is still positive that their two previous handsets will still make sales until the end of the year, they are more enthusiastic that their new flagship handsets can generate more sales. In fact, it is poised to surpass all previous Apple smartphones sales records, which is estimated to be around 475 million devices.
Defending Champion: The iPhone 6 Handsets
There are two flagship handsets from Apple that rule the market as of the moment – the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Released in September 2014, both devices sport almost the same features but with notable differences when it comes to screen size. In a featured post by the Trusted Reviews, the former features a 4.7-inch Retina display, while the 6 Plus has a larger 5.5-inch screen (a phablet).
Both handsets are said to be similar regarding their features and functions, so let’s recap on what makes these smartphones great:
• iOS 8
• A8 processor chipset, 64-bit technology
• M8 motion coprocessor
• 8-megapixel iSight camera
• Updated touch ID technology
• Faster 4G LTE
What made these smartphones exciting is that fact that they work seamlessly with the Apple Watch and Apple Pay. These features came pre-built into the two handsets.
New Challengers: The iPhone 6s handsets
Finally, the wait is over. Apple recently revealed their new flagship handsets, which are set to take smartphone standards up a notch. O2 regards the launches to be another groundbreaking step by the mobile giant, considering its number of upgrades from its predecessors. The launches align themselves nicely with the tagline: “The only thing that’s changed is everything.” Both new handsets feature 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays but with more powerful hardware. Here are some of its long-awaited features that make the iPhone 6s a must-have this year:
• 7000 series aluminum body
• iOS 9
• A9 processor chip, 2GB RAM
• Longer battery life
• Twice faster LTE network speed
• 3D multi-touch technology
• 12-megapixel, 4K video
Apart from its upgraded features, many iFans will love the aesthetical changes on this new Apple release. The company included the rose gold finish on the iPhone 6s color selection, apart from the existing silver, gold, and space grey lineup.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are a huge upgrade from the iPhone 5s. Yet, with its total upgrade from the former, the iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus are great smartphones if you’re planning to upgrade to a more powerful device with a more premium and classic appearance. If the additional premium color selection didn’t catch your attention, perhaps the hardware revamp will appeal to you. The 2GB RAM supported by the upgraded A9 64-bit chipset are impressive, especially since many apps are now consuming plenty of space on the internal storage. It ensures no freezing screens and guarantees faster performance with a better battery life than its predecessor.
