New iPhones Add Cool Features with a Big Pricetag

Posted on October 8, 2015 by


On 9 September, Apple announced the newest iPhone to hit the market, the 6S and 6S Plus. Sporting the slogan, “The only thing that’s changed is everything,” consumers expected nothing less than the best in new software and hardware.

The iPhones are equipped with the new 3D touch sensors that allow for a more interactive experience. It works by using sensors between the display screen and the backlight that measure minute distances between them in response to changes in pressure. With the new “peek and pop” feature, users can “peek” at the selected item without having to leave their current screen. The “pop” feature allows users to open the selected file after “peeking” at it.’

Apple also claims to now be using the strongest cover glass on any smartphone in the world, so users can expect fewer cracks from misuse.

The iPhone 6s boasts a 4.7 inch screen with retina HD display and 3D touch at 1334×750 resolution, while the 6s Plus boasts a 5.5 inch with retina display and 3D touch at 1920×1080 resolution.

The new models also come in four colors.  Apple introduced a new Rose Gold model, which has gained many admirers thus far.

However, with great quality comes great wallet draining: the 6s starts at $649 while the 6s Plus starts at a whopping $749.
