iPhone 6s review
"new features are nice on iPhone 6s, but speed is new phone's best trick"
With just a single press, 3D Touch lets you do more than ever before. Live Photos bring your memories to life in a powerfully vivid way.
iPhone 6s 3D Touch
The original iPhone introduced the world to Multi-Touch, forever changing the way people experience technology. With 3D Touch, you can do things that were never possible before. It senses how deeply you press the display, letting you do all kinds of essential things more quickly and simply. And it gives you real-time feedback in the form of subtle taps from the all-new Taptic Engine.
Force Touch is not new to Apple, but it is new to Apple iPhones — and in coming to the phone it comes with a new name (just to confuse us all).
If you’re using an Apple Watch or the new Macbook, pushing hard with your finger to access the next level of menu is called Force Touch. If you do the same action with your finger on the iPhone 6S, it’s called 3D Touch. Call it what you will, the force is strong with this feature and it has the potential to be as key to the way you use your smartphone as the tap, pinch and swipe.
Push down that little bit harder on the phone icon, and you get a menu with your favourite contacts. Push hard on the camera icon and your menu options include “take selfie” or “take photo”.
"12-megapixel pictures. 4K videos.Live Photos. Lasting memories."
iPhone 6s also takes selfies worthy of a self-portrait with the new 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera. And it introduces Live Photos, a new way to relive your favourite memories. It captures the moments just before and after your picture and sets it in motion with just the press of a finger.
