The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are here. Apple unveiled the devices during an information-packed event on 9 September, highlighting numerous improvements and new features.
Apple CEO Tim Cook claimed that the updates make the handsets not just the most advanced iPhones ever but the most advanced smartphones on the market, no doubt something that the folks at Samsung, HTC, Sony et al will take issue with.
V3 has taken a look over the new phones to consider the biggest features and impacts of the devices and how they could fare in the market. Let us know what you think in the comments box below.
10. Same launch price as iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
Let’s not mince words: Apple devices are expensive. It was a pleasant surprise, then, that the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will cost no more than the original iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus when they launched. That’s £539-£699 for the various iPhone 6S variants, and £619-£789 for the iPhone 6S Plus.
To be sure, these are still intimidating prices, and only the £749 Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ comes close to the 128GB iPhone 6S Plus in terms of costliness.
Still, Apple had a chance to raise this barrier even higher, knowing that fans will flock to the shops regardless, and didn’t take it. That’s something, at least.
