A breakthrough design. Pushed even further.
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus take everything that made the previous-generation iPhone great, and advance it to a new level. They're made with 7000 Series aluminium, the strongest alloy we've ever used in an iPhone. They both feature Retina HD displays made from the strongest cover glass used on any smartphone in the world. And now they're available in an elegant rose gold ?nish
7000 Series aluminium. Stronger from the outside in.
The iPhone 6s enclosure is made from the same grade of aluminium used in the aerospace industry. It's created from a unique composition of elements that make it the strongest alloy we've ever used in an iPhone.
The world's strongest smartphone glass. Now even stronger.
The new glass on iPhone 6s is made using a special dual ion-exchange process, which makes it stronger at a molecular level and the most durable in the smartphone industry.
Sleek and seamless, in four gorgeous ?nishes.
The smooth, continuous unibody design created for iPhone 6 comes to iPhone 6s. Its familiar form feels just right in your hand. And now there are four stunning ?nishes to choose from: gold, silver, space grey and the new rose gold
Software and hardware. A deeper connection.
If iPhone 6s seems like it's tailor-made for iOS, that's because it is. Each hardware component - from the A9 chip to the Home button - is designed to get the most out of iOS. And likewise, iOS is designed to maximise the performance and functionality of the hardware it runs on. Together, they deliver a powerful and enjoyable experience because they were designed that way - together.
iPhone 6s was designed specifically to work with 3D Touch, the next generation of Multi-Touch. 3D Touch is a revolutionary pressure-sensing technology that lets you get to the content you want simply by pressing the display. Capacitive sensors measure the pressure you apply on the glass. You instantly see a response on the screen and feel feedback from the all-new Taptic Engine. 3D Touch is a perfect example of the magic that happens when hardware and software are designed together. 3D Touch can only perform because it was designed alongside iPhone 6s.
The A9 chip is made speci?cally for iPhone. By designing our own chip, we can tailor its performance to how people really use their iPhone. So the things you do every day - browsing the web, using apps, taking photos - work even better. This level of integration between the A9 chip and iOS 9 means that your iPhone performs better and works more e?ciently than if we used an off-the-shelf chip that we didn't design.
Place your finger on the Home button, and just like that your iPhone unlocks. Touch ID is just as secure as before and now works even faster. You can even use it within participating apps to sign in and authenticate purchases.
Landscape view on iPhone 6s Plus
Many built-in apps - including Mail, Calendar and Messages - have been optimised to make the most of the larger display on iPhone 6s Plus. Simply switch from portrait to landscape to see some of your favourite apps take on a new perspective.
Your iPhone is beautiful. Give it a complement.
We take great care in designing every aspect of iPhone 6s, including the cases and accessories. Choose a natural leather case in one of seven colours, or go with vibrant silicone in one of 12 colours. And to keep you charged, there are now colour-matched Apple-designed metal docks
Smile for the world's most popular camera.
People love to take pictures with iPhone. In fact, it's the most popular camera in the world. But what people love even more are the memories that are preserved within those images. Those memories are now incredibly vivid with Live Photos, an entirely new way to bring your still photos to life.
More stunning detail in every single pixel.
The iSight camera captures beautiful 12-megapixel still photos. But great photos aren't just measured in megapixels. That's why we've added a state-of-the-art sensor, a new image signal processor, advanced pixel technology, Focus Pixels, improved local tone mapping and optical image stabilisation.1 What does that all mean? It means we've taken care of the technology. All you have to do is find something beautiful and tap the shutter button for the best, most awe-inspiring photos you've ever taken.
Introducing Live Photos.
A still photo captures an instant frozen in time. With Live Photos, you can turn those instants into unforgettable living memories. At the heart of a Live Photo is a beautiful 12-megapixel photo. But together with that photo are the moments just before and after it was taken, captured with movement and sound.
You can bring those moments to life at any time simply by pressing anywhere on the photo. You can even set your favourite Live Photo as your Lock screen wallpaper, so you can relive a moment any time you take your iPhone 6s out of your pocket. And you can view Live Photos on your other Apple devices too.
Lights. 4K camera. Action.
The game-winning shot. The impromptu dance party. The first ride without training wheels. Some things are meant for video. Now you can record those moments in resolution that's four times higher than HD video. You can zoom in on those 8 million pixels while you're shooting or playing your 4K videos. And with iPhone 6s Plus, optical image stabilisation is now available for videos in addition to photos. So you can shoot smooth, beautiful videos in lower light
Make your directorial debut. In 4K.
The 4K video you can shoot with iPhone 6s looks so amazing, you'll want to share it with the world. With the new iMovie for iOS, you can create movies and send them to YouTube at 4K resolution with a few taps. And iPhone 6s is so powerful that you can smoothly edit two streams of 4K video to create effects like picture-in-picture and split screen - a challenge for many PCs..
The innovation begins from within. At every possible opportunity, iPhone 6s has been engineered to work better. More intuitively. And more efficiently. iPhone 6s also introduces groundbreaking new technologies, including 3D Touch and Live Photos.
The innovation beneath 3D Touch.
Using 3D Touch to do more with your iPhone is as simple as pressing the display. But what's happening underneath the surface is a sophisticated process. To provide the nuanced effect of force being gradually applied and removed, 3D Touch detects a dynamic range of pressure to a microscopic degree. It even accounts for changes in gravity as you hold your phone.
A9. The most advanced chip ever in a smartphone.
The A9 chip brings a new level of performance and efficiency to iPhone 6s. Not only a faster experience, but a better one. The A9 chip is capable of gaming console-class graphics performance that makes games and other apps much richer and more immersive.
64-bit desktop-class architecture.
The A9 chip is our third-generation chip with 64-bit architecture. It sits at the cutting edge of mobile chips, improving overall CPU performance by up to 70 per cent compared to the previous generation. And boosting graphics performance by up to a staggering 90 per cent compared to the previous generation.
M9. Engineered for efficiency.
The M9 motion coprocessor is integrated directly into the A9 chip so you can do more, for longer periods of time, with great performance and battery life. The M9 connects to the accelerometer, compass, gyroscope and barometer for a wide range of fitness-tracking capabilities. With iPhone 6s, you can now measure your running or walking pace in addition to your steps, distance and elevation changes. The integrated M9 works so efficiently and intelligently that Siri is always on and waiting for your voice commands. You can easily activate Siri by saying "Hey Siri" whenever your iPhone 6s is nearby.
The new standard in phone photography comes standard.
iPhone 6s introduces a next-generation, Apple-designed image signal processor that works with iOS 9 to provide better temporal and spatial noise reduction, as well as third-generation local tone mapping. A new 12-megapixel sensor uses advanced pixel technology. Every pixel in the sensor has been re-engineered to prevent crosstalk between the subpixels, meaning we could fit a lot more pixels in the sensor for a sharper photo that has less noise and truer colour. iPhone 6s Plus features optical image stabilisation for videos in addition to photos, so you can get great shots in low light. And the 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera includes Retina Flash to achieve perfectly lit selfies. When you use Retina Flash, a custom-engineered display chip drives the display to flash three times brighter than usual. Combined with True Tone technology, Retina Flash provides the perfect lighting for whatever environment you're shooting in.
Touch ID. Advanced security. At your fingertip.
Touch ID lets you unlock your phone simply by using your ?ngerprint. It uses highly sophisticated algorithms to recognise and securely match your fingerprint. And the improved Touch ID sensor detects your fingerprint even faster than the previous generation.
Faster 4G LTE. Faster Wi-Fi.
iPhone 6s lets you browse the web, download apps and games, and stay connected with the people who matter to you. Now you can do all those things up to twice as fast with 4G LTE Advanced.* And iPhone 6s supports up to 23 LTE bands - the most in any smartphone - for better worldwide roaming. iPhone 6s is also up to twice as fast when you're connected to Wi-Fi. And with Bluetooth technology, you'll stay connected to your Apple Watch, external speakers and hundreds of other devices.
iOS 9. An experience unlike any other. On a phone unlike any other.
iOS 9 is a big reason why you won't find anything else like iPhone. It brings together an elegant and intuitive interface, powerful features and robust security. It's designed to work as beautifully as it looks. So you can enjoy everything you do - on a device that does everything.
So easy to use, you already know how to use it.
From the moment you pick up your iPhone, it's not an accident that it already feels familiar. In fact, it's by design. The clean, thoughtfully designed interface makes it fun to browse your favourite websites, take a selfie or text your friends.
Hardware designed with software. Why nothing else feels like iPhone.
Because Apple makes both the hardware and the operating system for iPhone 6s, everything is designed to work together. So apps take full advantage of hardware features such as the A9 chip, enhanced cameras, Touch ID sensor and more. iOS learns when you like to use your apps and updates the content in them at power-efficient times, like when your device is already in use and connected to Wi-Fi. So the content in your favourite apps stays up to date without a major drain on your battery.
Over a million apps. Just as many possibilities.
The App Store is constantly expanding, and so are the possibilities for you to create an even more personalised iPhone experience. Dive into the App Store, discover new apps and download them with a tap.
Keep things going from one device to another.
If you use a Mac, it's connected to your iOS devices more seamlessly than ever before. Start browsing a website on your iPad, then easily switch to your iPhone or Mac and pick up exactly where you left off. Away from your iPhone? Answer an incoming call on your Mac. Or your iPad. Or even your Apple Watch.
iCloud. Everything you love, everywhere you go.
iCloud makes sure all your devices always have the latest versions of your most important things, including documents, photos, apps, contacts, calendar events and more
Private and secure. Just the way it should be.
Security and privacy aren't just features of iOS 9, they're fundamental to its design. We've made it easy for you to manage your security and privacy settings, which makes it harder for anyone you may not want to access your information.
In addition to the enhanced fingerprint security of Touch ID, the default passcode length is now six digits instead of four. With a million possible combinations instead of 10,000, your passcode will be even stronger. You can also enable two-factor authentication, which prompts you for a verification code when you sign in from a new browser or on a new device. This code is automatically displayed on your other Apple devices or sent to your phone, so you can quickly gain access to your account, while unauthorised users are kept out
iOS is designed to put your privacy first. If an app wants your location information or data from Calendar, Contacts, Reminders or Photos, it needs your permission first. Conversations over iMessage and FaceTime are encrypted, including predictive text - so no-one but you and the person you're talking to can see or read what's being said. And features built into Safari give you the ability to browse privately, block cookies and prevent websites from tracking you.
Find My iPhone Activation Lock
Security features in iOS make it very difficult for anyone who's not you to use or sell your device. Turning off Find My iPhone or erasing your device requires your Apple ID and password. Find My iPhone can also continue to display a customised message, even after your device is erased. And your Apple ID and password are required before anyone can reactivate it.
Most of the websites you visit nowadays require user names and passwords. Remembering them all can be tough, but you can let iCloud Keychain do it for you. It stores your website user names and passwords on the devices you've approved, protects them with robust 256-bit AES encryption and keeps them up to date on each device. Then it automatically fills them in whenever and wherever you need them. iCloud Keychain works with credit card information too, so checking out takes no time at all.
Making the switch to iPhone has never been easier.
The Move to iOS app makes it surprisingly simple to move all the important stuff - such as contacts, calendars and photos - to your new iPhone. Do it yourself, or Apple Support is always standing by if you have questions or concerns.
