They reinvented gifs? This reminds of Samsung's sound & shot

I think Nokia needs to fire up a law suit, Live Photo's an industry first?! Rem no, my Lumia 930 does it!

Lumia 520 does it, you don't need high end phone for it

So. Much. Hyperbole. This was an impressive showing from Apple. Force touch is impressive, especially coming from them. The camera improvement is welcome, but competition is still pretty fierce there. Let's not pretend they're reinventing the wheel here. I'm looking at you, 12-year-old fanboys.

They have one of the best line up in the market right now. It is Apple who is screwed with their line up. People are not crazy unless you are sheep to see the hardware difference between different phones.

Sadly the most exciting thing at the event was the Apple TV, looking forward to it, the 6s is meh for me.

I like the new camera and the fact that one doesn't have to open apps to do usual stuff (oh, and LTE-A). Other than that, 6s looks like a no go. I see no valid reason to upgrade from 5s, let alone from 6...

I could already picture a rose gold 6S in one hand and starbucks coffee in the other.

I am not sure what you guys are discussing here. I watched my coworkers with their 6+'s and they stutter on mundane tasks. I was shocked to see how slow this proclaimed A8 chip was...

I still don't see the difference from pressing the screen without pressure and with pressure.

Isn't anyone else concerned about the massive weight gain? I'm seriously let down. I'm currently using 6 plus and s6 edge and was going to get 6s thinking it would be nicer to have alot iPhone like 6,, but now it weighs more than my edge. 3d touch for me is just Airview recreated besides the animated GIF... These features will go stale over time. Dunno how to react but apple played more gimmicks for me than actual functionality this time. And why a dicey Pinkish Rose Gold. How would guys flaunt 6s without exclusive color which is almost feminine.

Sooo, I'm assuming this update will come to the iPhone 6, just without the haptic feedback? If so then I'll just wait for the i7.
