The new iPhone 6S continues to use a 4.7-inch display, with the same 1334x750 resolution providing a pixel density of 326PPI. The new iPhone 6S Plus has the same 5.5-inch 1920x1080 display as the original iPhone 6 Plus, with 401PPI.
Most were hoping for a screen upgrade, but Apple disappointed once again. But on the flipside, the 4.7-inch display on the iPhone 6S still has the same pixel density to that of a 4K display on a 13-inch laptop. The pixel density on the iPhone 6S Plus has the same pixel density as an 11-inch laptop with a 4K display. So it's not too bad, but it could've been better.
The new 12-megapixel camera is a 50% upgrade on the sensor size when compared to the 8-megapixel shooter on the iPhone 6 Plus, but the front-facing camera has also been upgraded. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have a pathetic 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, which has been upgraded to a 5-megapixel shooter, representing a 400% increase in sensor size. Nice work, Apple.
Both of Apple's new iPhones feature the same 12-megapixel shooter, with an f2.0 lens, Focus Pixels, and a dual-LED flash. But with LG, Sony and Samsung offering massive rear-facing camera megapixels, Apple isn't up there just yet. But if we also take into consideration Apple's always impressive image processing technology, the upgrade to a 12-megapixel shooter might just be enough.
Just one more thing. The iPhone 6S doesn't include OIS, or optical image stabilization, which is a massive omission that makes the iPhone 6S seriously lose out to the bigger iPhone 6S Plus.
Apple has included a new 'Live Photos' feature with the new iPhones, which records a 1.5-second video around both sides of photo so it is able to move. Nokia has had this feature for a while, but it's something new in the world of iPhones. Most people probably won't use it, but it's there if you want it.
'Desktop-Class Performance' From the New Processor
Apple has used its new A9 processor in the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, which is a big upgrade on the A8 processor that powered the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Apple has said that the new A9 and A9X processor (latter used in the new iPad Pro), features "desktop-class performance".
The new A9 processor is 70% faster than the A7 processor in CPU tasks, while the GPU is 90% faster. Apple is calling the new A9 and A9X processors 'console class' when it comes to gaming, but we don't know any of the specifics just yet.
