All about the iPhone 6s (2015 – 2018)
Like the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6s was presented at the same time as its “Plus” version during a keynote in September 2015. Coming from the iPhone generation, the iPhone 6s has not really changed. in terms of appearance compared to its predecessor, but it incorporates multiple improvements.

The characteristics of the iPhone 6s
The screen of the iPhone 6s remains unchanged in terms of format and resolution: it measures 4.7 inches and has a resolution of 1334 × 750 pixels. However, the change lies in a new touch layer, featuring a technology called 3D Touch, who perceives the force of touch. Thanks to a set of 96 sensors distributed over the screen surface, this new technology allows faster access to shortcuts and basic options.
While the iPhone 6s camera had only a minor improvement over its previous model, this time around, the iPhone 6s camera has undergone significant changes. Its rear camera is at 12 Megapixels That is 4 more than the iPhone 6. Its front camera has also benefited from some improvements: it went to 5 Mpx and is now equipped with a flash thanks to the backlight, which Apple has named “Retina flash”.
As usual, the American firm improves the processors for each new generation of its smartphones. For iPhone 6s, it is a A9 processor, 70% faster and 90% more efficient graphically than the previous chip.
The iPhone 6s is compatible with the Bluetooth 4.2 network, Wi-Fi, and works under the new version of 4G LTE, the 4G LTE-advanced, which enables faster data transfer.
The 9th model of Apple’s smartphone generation uses the same sensors as the old model, i.e. an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a proximity sensor, a barometer, an ambient light sensor, as well as the second generation Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

Weight and dimensions
Although it takes the same dimensions as its predecessor in terms of height (138.1 mm) and width (67 mm), it is however thicker (7.1 mm against 6.9 mm). This therefore justifies a heavier weight than the previous version (143g against 129g).
