The Apple iPhone 6S is finally out, and as usual, it is the best Apple iPhone model yet. If you are planning to sell cell phone today, we are here with a detailed comparison between the Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6, which would help you decide better on which one you should pick as your next Smartphone option: the latest Apple iPhone 6S or iPhone 6.
Apple iPhone 6S VS iPhone 6; Specifications & Features
Design wise, the Apple iPhone 6S is like a close twin to the Apple iPhone 6. The iPhone 6S is thicker and heavier at 7.1mm and 143g as compared to the iPhone 6 which was just 6.9 mm thick and weighed 129g.
Even though both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S has an Aluminium unibody design, the latest gen Apple iPhone 6S is made of 700 series Aluminium, which is of aerospace grade and hence provides better sturdiness to the device’s body. Moreover, this is Apple’s answer to the “#Bendgate” issue that the previous generation faced.
Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S has the same 4.7 inch display with Retina resolution and 326 PPI. But the display of the iPhone 6S has a new technology termed “3D Touch” which allows you to perform various tasks on your iPhone depending on how much of pressure you apply on the screen, similar to the Force Touch technology we saw with the All New Macbook 2015.
The iPhone 6 is a very responsive Smartphone, even according to today’s standards, thanks to the A8 processor and the M8 motion co-processor that the device comes with. And the latest gen iPhone 6S comes with an A9 processor, that handles CPU tasks up to 70 percent faster than the A8 chip, and also can handle GPU loads up to 90 percent faster than its predecessor which means that the iPhone 6S is even faster than the already responsive iPhone 6.
Even though the better processing speeds would not be visible in day to day normal tasks like web browsing or multi tasking, where the power of the new CPU and GPU chips will be felt is mainly in gaming.
The iPhone 6S comes with the latest iOS 9 operating system out of the box. And the iOS 9 update brings in a lot of much needed updates and features into the operating system. The main additions that comes with the iOS 9 operating system includes a new six-digit passcode security, a Power Saving Mode to help improve the battery life of your device and also now the latest iOS 9 operating system consumes much less internal storage space of your Apple device than earlier software versions.
The main improvement of the iPhone 6S as compared to the iPhone 6 comes in the camera department. The Apple iPhone 6 had an 8 MP primary camera along with a 1.2 MP front facing camera. Whereas the iPhone 6S comes with a bumped up all new 12 MP rear facing camera and a 5 MP front facing shooter as well. To back up the great photos that the latest Apple iPhone 6S can take, the device also supports 4K video recording.
Everything seems like an improvement, except in the case of the battery where the iPhone 6 had a 1,810 mAh battery, the iPhone 6S has an even smaller 1,715mAh battery.
