Most fans of Apple devices are eagerly awaiting presentations Apple to see what is new for them. Usually, the main subject of the show is the new model of the famous smartphone – iPhone. The 2015 presentation developed along the same lines, at which iPhone 6S was presented to the world. And, if before each new phone was very different from the previous one both externally and technically, then this time the situation is slightly different.
Tim Cook showed everyone a gadget that is completely similar in appearance to a simple 'six'. Considering her outright failure, the fans tensed a lot that the situation with low-quality materials and other jambs could repeat itself. But was it really so?
Externally, the devices do not differ at all, apart from the presence of the letter S on the back cover of the novelty and an additional color option – rose gold. However, Apple got rid of the old case from its main problem – low strength, due to which the previous device could bend slightly above the middle.
The main changes, of course, are contained in the technical part. iPhone The 6S sports a more powerful A9 processor and an M9 motion coprocessor, which provide excellent performance in all applications, even today. The amount of RAM has grown from 1 to 2 gigabytes. As a result, the 6S received an increase in power almost one and a half times.

The amount of memory for storing a personal library and other files is still 16, 32, 64 or 128 GB. An unexpected turn was the decrease in the battery capacity – 1715 versus 1810 mAh, but this did not affect the operating time.
The improvement of the camera was reflected in the unheard of joy of the buyers. The past 8 megapixels were used back in the 4S. The novelty also received the long-awaited 12 Mp and a 5 Mp front camera. Fans of video shooting will appreciate the ability to shoot in 4K resolution, however, for this purpose it is best to choose a phone with a large amount of internal memory, because files with this extension weigh a lot.
Let's move on to no less interesting additions iPhone 6S – bells and whistles. The real breakthrough was the emergence of 3D Touch – a system that determines the pressure on the display. If you press on the widget a little harder than usual, the user opens an additional menu of quick access to application functions.

The Home button now integrates the second generation of Touch ID technology. As a result, the unlocking process has noticeably accelerated and the probability of unlocking the device the first time has increased to almost 100 percent.
Another new feature is 'Hello Siri'. It will be useful for those who like to chat with a virtual voice assistant. If earlier, in order to hear a pleasant female (or male) voice, you had to hold down the Home button for a while, now it's enough to just say the phrase 'Hello Siri' into the void. This option is present on older devices, but there is one significant 'but' – it only worked when the phone was on charge. In iPhone 6S this is no longer required.
All these changes have affected the cost of the phone. If iPhone 6 could be bought for only 32 thousand, then 6S was already estimated at at least 57 thousand. Now the devices cost 25 and 33 thousand, respectively.
