Apple iPhone 6S: Specs, pricing and availability

While the iPhone 6 still seems pretty new even though ten months have passed since it was launched, we hear that Apple is gearing up to launch the new iPhone 6S next month.

Even though the new iPhones will look and feel the same, Apple is gearing up to sell close to an astronomical 90 million units in the last quarter of the year, enticing customers with the new iOS 9,  improved internal features, better battery performance and products like Apple Pay, Apple Music and the reinvigorated Maps service.

In the midst of the great smartphone storm coming in September that might get the likes of Samsung, HTC and Huawei panicking in their shades, the real question is, are you ready for it?

It all depends on what you need. At a time when sub-4-inch smartphones are things of the past, Apple offers you a choice between a moderately sized 4.7 inch iPhone and a colossal 5.5 inch iPhone, depending on your tastes. If you felt that probably a 6-inch iPhone could suit you better, you'll probably have to wait till next year.

In spite of similar looks, how the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus will play and work will be a lot different from how your existing iPhones now do.

The new Force Touch technology will let you perform pressure-sensitive scrolling through the home button that will perform similar to the trackpad in the MacBook. Rumours suggest that iPhone 6S will also feature a Qualcomm MDM9635M chip  which will deliver more than twice the download speed than the iPhone 6, supporting speeds as high as 300Mbps.

In terms of internal storage, several genuine sources have suggested that the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus will feature 32GB as base storage, thus removing the last figments of anxiety among users about the absence of an additional memory slot.

The iPhone 6S' front camera will also feature a flash, panoramic capability and 1080 pixel resolution as against 720 pixels in the iPhone 6.

What's more, Future Supplier, a firm that sells parts of mobile phones and similar gadgets, just got hold of an iPhone 6S Plus shell that they think is sturdier than that of the original iPhone 6 Plus. While a layman would hardly find any difference between the new case and the old one, seasoned Apple-watchers at Future Supplier noticed a change in position of the screw hole for the loudspeaker. They also said that the case looked and felt a lot stronger than the original iPhone 6 Plus case. Goodbye, bendgate!

If you feel an iPhone which is faster, more power efficient, easier to use and attractive at the same time suits you perfectly, then do remember that the iPhone 6S and its big brother go on sale come September 25. If you love paying monthly, Vodafone will start taking pre-orders for the new iPhones with a long list of monthly options just for you.
