Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus: all you need to know
posted by Ray S. / Sep 09, 2015, 5:24 PM
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!
LET'S START WITH THE ESSENTIALS
Essentially, Apple has come up with two new iPhones that look unapologetically similar to those of the previous generation, but at the same time, has managed to completely renovate them from the inside. And you'll see what we mean once you get to the materials below. In terms of specs, a lot has changed – starting with the most obvious and expected improvement, which is the new A9 system-on-a-chip. 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.
IPHONE 6S & 6S PLUS VS THE ANDROID WORLD
Apple has obviously innovated quite a bit with the iPhone 6s series, bringing us potential breakthrough features such as 3D Touch, but how does its new family of smartphones exactly compare in the specs department? And more specifically, how do the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus stack up against their Android rivals? We have some very detailed comparisons for you in the following posts, in which we pit Apple's new offerings against pretty much each of their major counterparts from the vast Android wilderness. 3... 2... 1... Fight!

OK, so we went through the essential pieces of information, as well as a whole bunch of comparison scenarios.

This 'Further reading' section is where you'll find all the additional depth that you may be looking for.

Ram amount is probably the same 1gb. Which would suck. Apple is the "most valuable tech company in the world" but can't add more ram to their cash cow?

You have an iphone 6? If not I can assure you it doesn't need 2gb of RAM and iOS 9 being even better performing will require even less RAM. Stop confusing android with iOS.

Just because someone don't need it, doesn't mean they don't want or like to have it. I don't need a million dollars, I get by fine with my salary now, doesn't mean I wouldn't take a million dollars if i could lol.

Is that where apps run in background when needed? Like navigation while talking on phone, or music/video playing in background while I surf the web? Or is it one of those things, where you can let webpages load while you looking at another? Or how about pulling down a notification panel, while playing a game, and looking at weather, email alerts, or any other widget you put there (not just in home page). Yeah, I wouldn't know about multitasking, since I'm on iOS. /s

They do use IOS. They're referring to the phone not being able to multi-task like the iPad, with multi-window, which is a feature they were looking forward to. So, no they're not confusing Android with IOS, because Android can do it. And, just as darkkjedi, a long time IOS fan and iPhone 6+ owner if his iPhone needs more ram. In his own words, IOS 8 has been a mess.

You are telling me you have lag or issues and you cant open more than 10 apps and games at the same time with 6+? You smoking something? I have a friend with 6+ with who we tested and opened 30 apps combined with games, never lagged, and we could go back and open any of them waiting. Seriously stop confusing android with apple. iOS on a phone DOES NOT need 2gb ram UNLESS 4K videos require it. iOS and its apps do not need it.

Can the Iphone 6s stand against the Xperia Z1 Compact? The battery is pretty bad. Lol

All Indians should boycott all apple (iPhone) products as they have not considered India as an important market while launching at the same time in even smaller markets like Newzealand and other countries.
