iPhone and iPhone 6S 6S Plus are the new smartphone targati bitten apple. Launched September 9, 2015 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, devices inherit the aesthetics from their predecessors, but they are revolutionizing almost completely in hardware. Starting from the design, the model is 4.7 inches by 5.5 now see that the introduction of a 7000 series aluminum body, high resistance, as well as a new color gold rose.
In terms of hardware features, it introduces a new 3D touch panel pressure sensitive, so the optics improved, with 12 megapixels and IPS technology for the rear camera and 5-megapixel camera with flash Retina for the front. The beating heart of the iPhone 6S is characterized by the new A9 processor, 70% faster than, and 90% more agile drawing graphics.
On September 9, 2015 Apple unveiled the new generation of smartphones targati bitten apple: iPhone and iPhone 6S 6S Plus, two devices respectively by 4.7 and 5.5 inches. Aesthetics inherited from predecessors, functions, however, are completely renovated. So much so that the company has decided to launch them on the market followed by the slogan “has changed only one thing: everything.” What are the main features of the device, such as prices, availability and the most significant innovations?
Availability and prices
Launched from the stage of the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in Cupertino, a great venue for 7,000 seats, iPhone and iPhone 6S 6S Plus are available in some countries from September 25, while in Italy from October 9.
On Boot, smartphones can be purchased directly from Apple, at full price of the device, or by operators TIM, Vodafone and Three, each of which proposes solutions differentiated monthly, inclusive of traffic. The list of Apple Store is so composed:
iPhone 6S: 779, 889 and 999 Euros, respectively, for versions with 16, 64 and 128 GB;
iPhone 6S Plus: 889, 999 and 1,109 Euros respectively for versions with 16, 64 and 128 GB.
iPhone 6S: design
The generation of the iPhone 6S inherits the same design of its predecessors, as is normally the case for each “S” model, though it remains some small difference and are important new additions. Starting thickness, imperceptibly higher than the previous version, given the presence of the new panel pressure sensitive 3D Touch.
The first big surprise about the body: iPhone and iPhone 6S 6S Plus can now to pride of a 7000 series aluminum casing used in aerospace and already introduced on Apple Watch, this alloy ensures maximum impact resistance and is less prone to scratches. But it is not all, because in addition to the new material, is also introduced an unusual color for anodizing: pink gold, so smartwatch smartphone and remain always matched.
Finally, the glass front has been redesigned: Apple has not introduced a sapphire crystal panel, as suggested by some analysts before the summer 2015, but has reinforced the existing one with a dual ion exchange to make it even more resistant .
iPhone 6S: hardware equipment
As announced by Apple at the launch event, for a look largely unchanged, there is a lot of work on the hardware front, so that the generation of the iPhone 6S is the major updates of the entire history of the “S” models. From the new front panel to the camera, everything is renewed: below, the most significant innovations.
The new smartphone Cupertino see included the new 3D technology touch, deep deployment of the Force Touch already met on Apple Watch and in the latest versions of the MacBook. The front panel is now able to recognize the force with which you press the surface, to enable new features such as shortcuts, context menus, and a good number of gesture. All it combined also to a renewed taptico feedback system, thanks to a new Taptic Engine, for the vibrations of the device measured to the thousandth of a second.
You will interact with 3D Touch with two new gesture: Peek and Pop. The first function allows, with a slight pressure on the screen, for quick access to context menus of applications, such as the preview of every email folder inbox. Pop, featuring more pressure, instead serves to confirm an action: if already submitted, the complete opening of one of the email presented in the preview. Peek and Pop have been implemented in all native applications for iPhone and thanks to the iOS SDK 9, will soon make their appearance even in third-party software.
The iPhone 6S see great progress also in terms of cameras, following the success of the installed optical predecessors iPhone 6 and beautiful shots that have guaranteed the device over the last year.
The iSight camera, or the one on the back of the device, has now been updated to 12 megapixels: 50% more than in previous editions. Apple, however, did not want to increase indefinitely the number of pixels at the expense of quality, and has introduced a series of technologies to get shots always perfect, especially in low light conditions. It starts from a new processor ISP, isolated with diodes for greater capture and compliance of the light, and one reaches Focus Pixels, or a larger amount of points dedicated to the functions of focusing, for an autofocus really lightning. Added to this is an advanced technology for mapping local tones, as well as an optical image stabilizer and the result is shots dall’elevatissima compliance of color, perfect light sensitivity in low light conditions and longer shutter speeds. The aperture remains with opening f / 2.2.
The rear camera is also now able to record video in 4K resolution, edited directly on the device using iMovie and to create new shots for the multimedia features from Cupertino renamed as Live Photos. During the step of shooting, the iPhone 6S fact will capture a few seconds of audio and video subsequent to the next step, which will be stored within the image. Doing the same peek through 3D Touch, will start scanning the stations.
The goal front, meanwhile, sees the introduction of a 5 megapixel camera with Flash technology Retina: in poor light, the retina screen lights up as if it were a flash, all thanks to True Tone Flash positioned on the back of the device, which will analyze the ambient light and adjust, accordingly, the intensity of frontal illumination. In this way, the selfie will no longer be underexposed and the color of the skin will always be the most fascinating possible.
Other hardware features
iPhone and iPhone 6S 6S Plus have been revolutionized also in terms of internal components for maximum performance, the highest ever achieved by a smartphone branded bitten apple, combined with the best energy saving ever. From the new A9 processor connectivity taken to extremes, following a brief review of noteworthy features:
The new iPhone implement a new processor family A9, which also incorporates within it the co-processor of movement M9. Always 64 bit like its predecessors, is able to ensure processing of the CPU 70% faster, as well as graphics performance of 90% more snappy. A new technology of miniaturization in transistor level also reduces power consumption so as to ensure a good battery life of the device, as well as the “Hey Siri” mode always on, even when the device is not plugged in. The chip M9, however, also contains compass, gyroscope, accelerometer and barometer to monitor all physical data of the device;
iPhone and iPhone 6S 6S Plus are equipped with the fingerprint reader Touch ID, in its second generation, the same mountain on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S Plus. New features are expected with iOS 9;
LTE connectivity: smartphones now see the full compatibility with standard LTE Advanced, capable of connections up to 300 Mbps, depending of course on the network operator. In addition, it was expanded to 23 the number of available bands, to ensure faster access to the network even when roaming;
wireless connectivity has also been enhanced, with an integrated chip twice as fast as the previous edition, for connections up to 866 Mbps;
Battery: the autonomy of the device is substantially similar to that of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. They are guaranteed 14 to 23 hours of talk time on 3G networks, depending on the model recourse is 4.7 or 5.5 inches, plus 10 to 12 hours of surfing the Net, 11-14 hours of video playback in HD, 50 to 80 hours of audio and idle for 10 to 16 consecutive days.
To these characteristics one should add also 2 GB RAM, not yet officially confirmed by Apple and, as customary, all of the highest environmental standards, with the exclusion of toxic substances during the production phase, the removal of minerals from areas of conflict, as well as high recyclability thanks to the use of aluminum and glass.
