4 (plus 1?) new iPhone 6s features that are not new to Android users

4 (plus 1?) new iPhone 6s features that are not new to Android users
Earlier today, Apple announced the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which are incremental upgrades over the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from 2014. The two brand new handsets will be available to pre-order starting September 12, for prices similar to those of last year's iPhones.

While the new Apple smartphones look a lot like their predecessors (or, should we say they look identical to their predecessors?), they do pack various upgraded features. However, from the new features that the iPhone 6s series is introducing, some are new only to Apple, as they've already been around in the Android universe. Let's check them out below, shall we?

For real? He's stating the obvious that it's nothing new and fresh and you still asked him what's his point? That's some serious apple love you got there man. Quit humping the aluminum, be human and don't be a corporate slave.

I think his point might be that Apple, they company that sues over basic geometric shapes calling them copying, copies as much or more than anyone else. And that Apple and all the legions of the rabid Apple army are hypocrites. (Less so now for Apple, since an actual adult runs the company now. Still so for the legions, who even claim the Gear S2 somehow copies the iWatch)

I also dont see the point, why to compare iPhone with android phones... Android users mostly think about spec.. which iPhones is not about. Maybe iphone can record 4K without limit.. also I feels apple waits for technology to get mature instead to be first..

I'm not getting this until Apple confirms that the 6s plus has 2gigs of ram.

4. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Agreed. 2gb is the only acceptable answer.

No matter how much RAM it have I am getting it and it will be my first iphone ever. I an excited about it.. only confusion is 6S or 6S+.. 6S+ seems heavy but seems better battery, camera and display..

This as well. If not, then I'm testing out W10 with Microsoft's flagship.

you gonna be disappointed, it has i Gig, and my contact would know

42. FluffyBled unregistered

True that. If it had 2 Gigs, apple would have mentioned it multiple times during the event!

Smometimes back they were defending 1 gb RAM to be the best.. Now they are begging for 2gb RAM..

PA, why my comment was removed? It is not offensive or trolling... I'll post it again: Why you need 2GB RAM? Wasn't it iOS so damn good optimized? Wasn't it 5+" screen useless? Wasn't it stylus useless, told by Steve Jobs? IPad Pro is such a copy of Surface. Not Surface Pro even. And will ad: 3D Touch must be called WaiTouch or LooongTouch. Erase it again and will call you iPhoneArena.

Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is mystery, Today is a gift. That's why it's called PRESENT. Just enjoy the present.

well but i have noticed that iphone 6s can record unlimited 4k videos unlike android phones which can shoot to 5min at maximum also it saw a hands on video for marques brownlee that comfirmed the phone to have 1 GB of RAM not 2 .

Hello 2015? Apps always update and games continue to get bigger datas? 16gb is small for today's standard. It's intentional, they offer 16gb so that people will get the higher models for more profit but if you're a tech follower, 32gb or 64gb should be the baseline for zero microsd gadgets.
