A breakthrough design.
Pushed even further.
iPhone 6s takes everything that made the previous generation great, and advance it to a new level. It's made with 7000 Series aluminum, the strongest alloy we’ve ever used in an iPhone. Featuring a Retina HD display made from the strongest cover glass used on any smartphone in the world.
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.
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 specifically 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 efficiently 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.
12MP pictures. 4K videos. Live Photos. Lasting memories.
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.
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 stabilization 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.
