iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus introduce 3D Touch, an entirely new way to interact with iPhone, and Live Photos, turning still photos into amazing living memories. Both models feature innovation on every level, with a 12MP iSight camera and 4K videos, a 5MP FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash, new A9 chip, second-generation Touch ID and faster LTE and Wi-Fi — with all-new materials in four finishes, including new Rose Gold.
Both iPhone models come with iOS 9, which is more intelligent and proactive with powerful search and improved Siri features, new features to built-in apps including Notes app,1 and improvements to performance, battery life, software updates and security.
The next generation of Multi‑Touch.
The original iPhone introduced the world to Multi-Touch, forever changing the way people experience technology. With 3D Touch, you can do things that were never possible before. It senses how deeply you press the display, letting you do all kinds of essential things more quickly and simply. And it gives you real-time feedback in the form of subtle taps from the all-new Taptic Engine.
12MP pictures. 4K videos.
Live Photos. Lasting memories.
The world’s most popular camera is more advanced than ever. The 12-megapixel iSight camera captures sharp, detailed photos. It takes brilliant 4K video, up to four times the resolution of 1080p HD video. iPhone 6s also takes selfies worthy of a self-portrait with the new 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera. And it introduces Live Photos, a new way to relive your favorite memories. It captures the moments just before and after your picture and sets it in motion with just the press of a finger.
A9. The most advanced chip ever in a smartphone.
iPhone 6s is powered by the custom-designed 64-bit A9 chip. It delivers performance once found only in desktop computers. You’ll experience up to 70 percent faster CPU performance, and up to 90 percent faster GPU performance for all your favorite graphics-intensive games and apps.
A breakthrough design.
Pushed even further.
Innovation isn’t always obvious to the eye, but look a little closer at iPhone 6s and you’ll find it’s been fundamentally improved. The enclosure is made from a new alloy of 7000 Series aluminum — the same grade used in the aerospace industry. The cover glass is the strongest, most durable glass used in any smartphone. And a new rose gold finish joins space gray, silver, and gold.
Advanced security. Right at your fingertip.
Using a highly advanced fingerprint sensor that’s now faster and better than ever, Touch ID makes unlocking your phone easy and secure. And it lets you use Apple Pay at over a million stores and within participating apps.
iPhone 6s features LTE Advanced with speeds up to twice as fast as the previous generation. It supports more LTE bands than any other smartphone. And when you’re connected to Wi-Fi, iPhone 6s lets you do things like browse the web and download apps at speeds up to twice as fast, too.
