The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus — the “most advanced Smartphones in the world,” according to Apple — were unveiled today at the company’s much-anticipated media event in San Francisco.
The new flagship Smartphones are equipped with 12-megapixel iSight cameras that have the ability to record 4K video.
3-D Touch, another new feature, enables the devices to distinguish between a light tap and a hard one, permitting users to perform more actions with one hand.
Equipped with a new A9 chip, the iPhone 6S sports a 4.7-inch screen while the iPhone 6S Plus boasts a 5.5-inch display.
“The only thing that has changed with iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus is everything — 3D Touch lets users interact with iPhone in entirely new and fun ways, and the innovative Live Photos brings your pictures to life,” Apple senior vice-president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller said.
“These are the most advanced iPhones ever, with 7000 series aluminum, ion-strengthened glass, the new 64-bit A9 chip, 12-megapixel iSight and 5-megapixel FaceTime HD cameras, faster Touch ID, LTE and Wi-Fi. Customers are going to love them.”
The devices come in silver, gold and space gray as well as a new color: rose gold.
The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will be available for $0 down with 24 monthly payments starting at $27 and $31, respectively, from Apple’s retail stores in the U.S., Apple.com, select carriers and Apple authorized resellers.
Both models will be available in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico and Singapore beginning Sept. 25, with pre-orders beginning Sept. 12.
