Lisa Gade reviews the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, Apple’s new phones for 2015. Both phones are nearly identical to the previous iPhone 6 generation models in terms of casing and design, but the internals have changed quite a bit. They’re .2 mm thicker and a few grams heavier to accommodate the new 3D Touch display that’s pressure sensitive for new interactions and for drawing as well. These iPhones run on considerably faster thanks to the new 1.86 GHz Apple A9 dual core, 64 bit CPU with 2 gigs of RAM and your choice of 16, 64 or 128 gigs storage.
The front FaceTime camera is 5MP and it can use the front display as a flash. The rear Sight 12MP camera can shoot 4K video (only the 6s Plus has OIS, optical image stabilization). Both front and back cameras have an f/2.2 lens. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have 4G LTE with WiFi calling and VoLTE support, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS. The iPhone 6s has a 1344 x 750 IPS Retina Display and the iPhone 6s Plus has a 1920 x 1080 IPS Retina display. Price remains the same as past years, with the iPhone 6s starting at $649 and the iPhone 6s Plus starting at $749. They’re available in space gray, silver, gold and a new color called rose gold that looks mighty pink.
