Apple Event: New iPhones Announced

After much speculation – and numerous leaks –  Apple have officially unveiled the latest in their long lines of smartphones; iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

Looking pretty similar to their predecessors, the phones do come with some specification upgrades to make them a little different, with the big one being the new 3D Touch technology.

Called “the next generation of multi touch” the pressure sensitive feature allows users to do different things based on the level of pressure applied to the screen. Perks of this include being able to look into apps without fully launching them.

Dimension-wise, the new handsets are the same as the originals; the 6S comes with a 4.7 inch display, while the 6S boasts a 5.5 inch screen.

Elsewhere, the devices are run by a third-generation 64-bit processor that comes in at 70% faster than the A8 chip used in last year’s models, as well as a new TouchID fingerprint scanner.

A new camera has also been introduced, with a 12MP shooter now in use, with a new filter that assists in noise reduction and low-light photo improvement. The camera can also now film 4K video, a first for iPhone.

On the front of the phone comes a new 5MP camera, suitable for FaceTime and those all-important selfies.

Coming in model sizes of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB – with a 32GB option still inexplicably absent – the new iPhones will be available from 25 September, with pre-orders beginning on 12 September.

Price-wise, the 16GB iPhone 6S starts at £539, with 64GB costing £619 and the 128GB handset coming in at £699. If you want the 6S Plus, you’re looking at £619 for 16GB, £699 for 64GB and £789 for the 128GB option.
