Traditionally in Appleland, the S generation of the iPhone isn’t much to crow about, but this time, the ‘s’ stands for significant. As in significant difference. On the outside, everything looks the same, except for a new colour addition to the line-up the blushy Rose Gold. But take a look under the hood and it’s all different. The iPhone6s comes with a new A9 chip with the new M9 motion-co-processor embedded within to make your daily swipes flow even more smoothly.
The iSight camera has been upgraded to 12 megapixels and now takes Live Photos. These are something between a Vine and a still shot. What it does is record 1.5 seconds of moving action before and after you hit the trigger so you capture the story behind the picture. To activate it, all you have to do is tap the new icon in the top bar within the camera app and it will flash Live to signal that you’re in Live Photo mode. To switch back to the conventional still image, just tap the icon again.
The front-facing FaceTime camera maintains its megapixel count at 5mp, but what’s interesting is that you can now take selfies in the dark. The iPhone 6 utilises the display as a flash and in true Apple fashion, gives it a new name – Retina flash.
If you don’t have Shs3m, don’t even dream about owning this gadget.
