Apple iPhone 6S Features
The new iPhone, being an S model, naturally comes with more power under the hood, but also brings the long awaited camera upgrade. The main camera now uses a 12MP sensor capable of 4K video recording as well as 1080p at 120fps, there is a brand new 5MP selfie camera too. And, it’s the same screen size and resolution but we think it’s exactly what Apple meant with “the only thing that’s changed is everything”.
With a single iPhone a year – two as of late – Apple is the kid that skips classes but aces the tests. The wild card player that goes on to win the tournament. The team that doesn’t play qualifiers but goes to the world cup.
Wouldn’t we all do less and make more? There goes the iPhone 6S, off to a familiar. The same on the outside but trying to pose as the most important iPhone since the first one ever released.

A late tribute perhaps to resistive screens, which Apple itself sent to their doom. Not a particularly scientific statement although resistive technology did rely on actual pressure to work. Good enough for anyone with a penchant for the dramatic.
