Apples event started off with the new iPad, but of course the new iPhone is the showcase of the event. The new iPhones includes the 6s and 6s plus. As tradition dictates the new devices take last years designs with some tweaking and newer internals for overall better performance.
The new smartphones include a mostly identical design to the previous counterparts with some upgrades to the metal housing with Apple now using 7000 series aluminum for a more stronger housing. They have also increased the strength of the glass on the display as well.
Inside we have Apples new A9 chipset – which is a slightly stepped down version of the new A9X inside the new iPad Pro, but fret not as the new A9 is still 70-percent faster than the previous A8 and 90-percent faster graphics wise. The camera sensor has now been bumped up to 12MP as well.
Much like the new iPad Pro, both devices make use of pressure sensitive touch displays. Apple are calling it 3D touch – where users can enact different functions depending on how much pressure they exert on the display. The difference between a tap and a press is pretty noticeable, but the difference between a press and a push is very clear and instinctive.
Developers are already beginning to take use of the new function, but it’s already greatly integrated within iOS 9.
