What we think

Those are pretty much all the specs and features of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus you should care about. Now, back to where we were: what do we think about the new iPhones at the moment?

We were not really expecting a change in the hardware department because as you know, this is an S year for the Apple. It is only after 2 years that the company can release a phone with new hardware.

So, when we were told about the new 12 MP Camera, we were pretty surprised that Apple decided to improve the hardware. The camera has been improved, not just the experience.

For the first time, Apple has decided to jump to 12MP for the main camera, from the previous 8 MP and 5MP for the secondary snapper. The new main camera also supports 4K video recording, a feature that is however so last year in our perspective.

The 12MP snapper protrudes slightly

Samsung incorporated 4K video recording back when they released the Note 3. But as much as we are not surprised, it is a first for Apple.

Inside the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Pluss hoods are also improved processors. The Apple A9 is said to be 70% better in performance as compared to the previous generation. It also seems more efficient.

We say more efficient because Apple decided to reduce the battery capacity by a few mAh but the company claims the phone can keep running for the same time as the iPhone 6.

Apple iPhone 6S Rose Gold looks stunning!

Apple iPhone 6S Rose Gold looks stunning!Hi there! We almost forgot it. There is innovation inside the new iPhone 6S and 6s plus, and if you bought the iWatch, or the new Macs, you have interacted with it already.

Apple calls it 3D Touch.

Let me explain it a bit. With the 3D Touch feature, you now have a range of new features such as the peek and pop. This is just another Force Touch sensor but the company decided to re-brand it.

For the peek gesture, you press slightly on an app or the subject of an email in an email conversation and you are shown more details. When you press even harder, the app will open in a new window, or it will pop.

The API was released to developers to incorporate the feature in their apps.

We are waiting for the launch and release of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s plus in Kenya to bring you a comprehensive hands-on review.
