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 percent compared to the previous generation. And boosting graphics performance by up to a staggering 90 percent compared to the previous generation.
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 12MP sensor uses advanced pixel technology. Every pixel in the sensor has been reengineered 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 color. iPhone 6s Plus features optical image stabilization for videos in addition to photos, so you can get great shots in low light. And the 5MP FaceTime HD camera includes Retina Flash to achieve perfectly lit selﬁes. When you use Retina Flash, a custom 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.
Right at your ﬁngertip.
Touch ID lets you unlock your phone and make purchases with Apple Pay simply by using your ﬁngerprint. It uses highly sophisticated algorithms to recognize and securely match your ﬁngerprint. And the improved Touch ID sensor detects your ﬁngerprint even faster than the previous generation.
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 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.
Make crystal clear calls.
iPhone 6s supports Voice over LTE — wideband high‑quality calls that make your conversations sound as crisp and clear as if you were face to face. With simultaneous voice and LTE data, you can even keep browsing the web while you’re talking. And when you’re unable to get cellular service, Wi‑Fi calling provides an easy way to make and receive high‑quality wideband calls over a Wi‑Fi connection.*
