Any Android users fancy switching to iOS? There’s an app for that.
On Wednesday, Apple unveiled some fantastic looking products: from the new set of iPhones, to the new iPad Pro, to an updated, faster Apple TV with a stunning new Touch Remote.
However, is the iPhone 6s really worth both the hassle and extra cash to upgrade to?
The iPhone 6s features a 4.7” Retina HD display (1334 x 750) – the same display in the iPhone 6. Although, the 6s has a bit of a twist on its display.
Yep. You might’ve heard it already. 3D Touch. Unsure of what 3D Touch actually does?
3D Touch is a new feature which allows consumers to easily complete their everyday tasks. For example, if you needed to call someone who you speak to quite often, you would simply tap and hold the Phone application, and drag your finger to the contact, which would read, for example, “Call Jerry Smith”.
Also, as you can probably tell, the iPhone 6s has a very similar design to the iPhone 6 – although you cannot deny that it still looks stunning.
The iPhone 6s also features an Always-On Siri. This is a feature that a lot of consumers wanted on the upcoming iOS, which is being released sometime on 16 September. However, they won’t be getting this feature unless they upgrade to the latest iPhone.
This year, Apple have upgraded the iPhone’s camera (from an 8-megapixel to a new 12-megapixel, along with 4K recording, and Live Photos, a new feature), the iPhone’s processor (from a previous A8 to a new A9), yet the iPhone’s battery stays the same.
Apple also unveiled a new program for their customers, which allows them to subscribe to, to then allow them to get the latest iPhone each year for $32 per month, which is equivalent to approximately £21 per month. This is in addition to the current fee customers have to pay for their contracts, however it’s a nice way for consumers to break up their payments, instead of having to pay the full £539 upfront.
In addition to their new scheme, they have also made it a lot easier to switch from Android to iOS by creating a new app. This allows the consumer to transfer all of their data to their new iPhone.
Personally, I believe that upgrading to the new iPhone 6s would be a waste of time, hassle and money. There aren’t that many new features to make you want to switch from your iPhone 6 to your iPhone 6s. However, if you’re behind with Apple’s latest products, and still have an iPhone 4? Yeah, you may want to feel the difference and upgrade.
The iPhone 6s is available in Silver, Space Grey, Gold, and the new Rose Gold.
Pre-orders start on 12 September, and will be released 25 September.
