iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Announced September 9, 2015

Apple just revealed their new flagship smartphones earlier today and they are an evolutionary step ahead of their previous generation.

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus may look identical to the current models of iPhone but I can assure you that they are completely different under the screen. The new phones have an entirely new screen which Apple promises is the most durable smartphone screen ever constructed.  The new screen is important because it will support 3DTouch, a new feature for the Apple iPhone, but very similar to the ForceTouch technology used in the Apple Watch.

The new iPhone 6s will also feature a third generation 64-bit A9X processor, an all new 12MP iSight rear camera, and a 5MP FaceTime camera.  Not only are these new cameras featuring improved sensors, they are going to support a new feature called Live Photos, which will literally bring your photos to life every time you do a hard press on them.  This new Live Photo feature will be enabled by default and is compatible with iPadPro, MacBook, and the new Apple TV.

Pricing and storage capacity for all models are identical to the previous generation.  Yes that means that sadly they are still offering a model with only 16GB of storage.  Preorders will start on Saturday, September 12th, and the phones will be released on September 25th, 2015.  iOS 9 will be released for current iPhone owners on September 16th.

Any Android user who would like to migrate their data over from their Android phone to a new iPhone can do so with the help of an app they will be able to download on their Android phone free of charge.

A brand new line of Apple’s successful iPads are on the horizon, the iPadPro. Weighing in at a screen size of 12.9 inches, it is without a doubt the biggest iPad ever manufactured.

iPadPro is going to be powered by a third generation 64-bit processor, the A9X, make use of the same TouchID feature offered by the iPhone, and offer stereo sound through four discrete speakers.

To complement the iPadPro, Apple announced the Apple Pencil, a custom stylus designed to interact directly with the iPadPro screen, making it an incredible option for aspiring graphic artists.

iPadPro is coming in November. The lowest price model, a 32GB WiFi only model will start at the price of $799 US.  If 32GB isn’t enough for you (trust me, it’s not), a 64GB WiFi only model and a 128GB model with a cellular modem and WiFi support will also be offered.  Apple Pencil will release at a price of $99 US.
