Everything you need to know about the iPhone 6s (2015 – 2018)

Just 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. Also, it has a better camera, improved chip, and network enhancements. 

In 2015, multiple improvements on the launch of the iPhone 6S

iPhone 6s specs


The iPhone 6s screen remains unchanged in terms of format and resolution: it measures 4.7 inches and has a resolution of 1334×750 pixels. However, the change is in a new tactile layer, featuring a technology called 3D Touch, which senses the force of touch. Thanks to a set of 96 sensors distributed over the surface of the screen, this new technology allows faster access to shortcuts and basic options.


If the camera of the iPhone 6 had only a minor improvement compared to its previous model, this time, that of the iPhone 6s has undergone significant changes. Its rear camera is 12 Megapixels, 4 more than the iPhone 6. Its front camera has also benefited from some improvements: it has increased to 5 Mpx and is now equipped with a flash thanks to the backlight, which Apple has named “Retinaflash”.


As usual, the American firm improves the processors for each new generation of its smartphones. For the iPhone 6s, it's an A9 processor, 70% faster and 90% more graphically efficient than the previous chip.


The iPhone 6s is compatible with the Bluetooth 4.2 network, Wi-Fi, and operates under the new version of 4G LTE, 4G LTE-advanced, which allows 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.


The design of the iPhone 6s is similar to the iPhone 6. A concrete aesthetic with clean curves, fine lines and luxurious colors like Silver, Space Gray, Gold and Rose Gold. In addition, its case is more resistant thanks to Aluminum 7000.


The iPhone 6s was released in several versions with storage capacity of 16, GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, or 128 GB. In addition, Apple has improved the RAM capacity for this model: it is 2 GB, or double the previous version.


In terms of autonomy, the iPhone 6s can last up to 250 hours in standby and 14 hours in communication, which is 4 hours more than the iPhone 5s.


The iPhone 6s has the same accessibility features as the older models, namely Assistive Touch, Siri Voice Assistant which has been improved with iOS 9, and other features helping people with visual disabilities.


Although it has 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 higher weight than the previous version (143g against 129g).

iPhone 6s Compatibility


iOS 9 equips the iPhone 6s. Or: the addition of 3D Touch, iOS 9 has allowed better optimization of system resources and energy consumption. Another change, the voice assistant can now be activated only with the user's voice. By simply saying “Hey Siri”, the artificial intelligence appears to answer all our requests. iPhone 6s can support up to iOS version 14.


In terms of accessories, the iPhone 6s is compatible with all types of equipment such as multimedia, sports, health, protection, connectors, etc.
