It looks like 'rose gold' will be the new style trend for smartphone colors in the coming year. We dare make this forecast, because Apple has introduced the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and with them, comes this new ultra-fashionable rose gold version. And while we can easily spend all day here staring at it, there's much more to actually talk about, as Apple has made sure to pack its latest smartphones with tons of cutting-edge technology. Sorry, rosie, but we've got work to do!

The other, and possibly way more impactful addition is the new 3D Touch technology, which is built into the new 4.7" and 5.5" displays. While it may be a bit early to make any predictions about its success right now, we think 3D Touch (force-touch) has the potential to establish a whole new interface paradigm. It sure looks very cool – so be sure to read more about it in the following stories.
