A few months ago, Apple released iPhone 6S and if you are not familiar with Apple’s practice, you might be confused about this new iPhone as it looks identical to iPhone 6, but don’t be afraid that they are not the same. Inside at least.

There’s better hardware, an improved camera, a sturdier case, the new 3D Touch, and (finally) 2GB of RAM. Over the years the ‘S’ always brought something new to the plate, the iPhone 4S added Siri and the iPhone 5S had the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

The main addition to the iPhone 6s is definitely the new pressure-sensitive touch screen technology called 3D Touch which, while pretty impressive at the moment, will definitely get more interesting as more apps are released.

Overall, what Apple has to do is convince people that the S variant of the iPhone 6 is worth upgrading to, even if there are plenty of other smartphones to choose from and, sadly, the iPhone 6S doesn’t seem like a game changer. . it just has some subtle updates that have a lot of potential with future updates or releases.


At first glance, the iPhone 6S looks identical to the iPhone 6, with the same rounded corners and edges, but there are some subtle design changes.

The front of the phone is now stronger, the glass is less likely to break if the phone is dropped, and lastly, the iPhone 6S is now made from 7000-series aluminum.

As stated before, these changes are subtle and will probably go unnoticed by most. The volume buttons, mute switch and power key are in the same place as last year and this is not a bad thing because the phone is easy to operate with one hand and the buttons are exactly where they should be.

As a side note, the iPhone 6S is compatible with iPhone 6 cases.


The iPhone 6S appears to have the same display as the iPhone 6, with a 4.7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1334x750p, 16 million colors, and a pixel density of 326ppi.

Although there are much cheaper phones out there that offer 1080p resolution or even a 4K screen (which is overkill!), the iPhone 6S still offers an excellent viewing experience, being crisp and clear, with deep blacks, bright whites and very accurate colors.

While the resolution remains the same, there’s a major addition from last year’s flagship. Now you’re introduced to 3D Touch, which offers a whole new way to interact with iPhone.

This opens up completely new possibilities. If right now you can only open popups, activate quick actions or expand, preview links and messages, there is much that can be done in the future.


The iPhone 6S has better hardware than the iPhone 6, with an Apple A9 chipset, 1.84GHz dual-core Typhoon CPU, six-core PowerVR GT7600 GPU, 2GB of RAM, and still no card slot.

This translates to smoother multitasking, better handling of graphically demanding tasks (like playing games), no stutters, no dropped frames, and the phone never lagged while in use.

But there are some shortcomings. Apple decided to keep 16GB as base memory for the iPhone 6S and since there’s no microSD slot, that 16GB will fill up in no time.


iOS has always been the backbone of iPhones and the new installment, iOS 9 offers the same stability and ease of use that we’re used to and thanks to its subtle tweaks over the years and the new added 3D touch. , iOS 9 is the best iPhone software to date.

As always, iOS is fast and responsive, the App Store is still vibrant (and higher quality than the Google Play Store), and the apps have undergone some transformations and updates.

Apple Maps now has transit directions, there’s a news app, which is pretty basic, pulling topics from different sources in a magazine-style interface. Notifications are now filtered by time, not app, and thanks to the M9 coprocessor, Siri is always on standby—now you can wake her up by yelling Hey Siri instead of pressing a button. Siri can also respond to many more commands.

3D Touch is its main feature, and although it’s in its infancy, it’s best implemented with Apple’s Mail. You can preview messages, archive them, or mark them as unread.

Battery duration

The iPhone 6S has a 1715 mAh non-removable battery. Yes, you heard right, the battery is actually smaller, down from the 1810 mAh in the iPhone 6.

There have been complaints about the battery in the iPhone 6 and yes, Apple did not address this issue. Still, battery life averaged 15-16 hours a day, and there are plenty of people who need to recharge their iPhone 6S in the middle of the afternoon.

It is not that it is not understandable, the reason is the implementation of 3D Touch. The battery did not have enough space and they wanted to keep the same design as the iPhone 6. Still, there are many smartphones that have 4000 mAh and battery life is often a deciding factor for buyers.


Is the iPhone 6S a great phone? Yes it is. It has its unique features and they promise a lot in future updates. Is it worth upgrading the iPhone 5S? iPhone 5S users are the main target, iPhone 6S is way ahead from all points of view (better camera, bigger screen, better display, higher performance, much more stable).

But can Apple convince iPhone 6 users to upgrade to 6S? Maybe. Right now, the iPhone 6S doesn’t offer anything revolutionary and is pretty close to the iPhone 6, but it may be worth trying these early installments (like 3D Touch) before everyone else, before it goes mainstream. And if you want to switch from Android or Windows or are just curious about how iOS works, then the iPhone 6S is the best option.
