iPhone 6s Represents Innovation at Every Level
Apple's motto for iPhone 6s is "the only thing that's changed is everything". That nicely sums up the huge leap Apple's made from the iPhone 6 in terms of intuitive new features like 3D Touch, Live Photos, and 4K video. Let's take a closer look at these innovations in the iPhone 6s and see if this cutting edge smartphone is right for you.
New Ways to Interact with 3D Touch
iPhone 6s takes the familiar Multi-Touch gestures of tap, swipe, and pinch, and adds a new dimension of functionality. With 3D Touch, the iPhone responds to touch pressure to let you "peek" into an email or message, for example, without having to fully open it. Press a little harder and you can "pop" into the message for a full view. You can also do this Peek and Pop on website links and map addresses. 3D Touch works throughout iOS9 -- the new operating system for iPhone 6s -- to make your everyday phone use more natural and intuitive.
Live Photos and the 12MP Difference
Those with an iPhone 6 will rave about its 8MP iSight camera and the incredible detail and clarity it can deliver. iPhone 6s, however, raises those image capabilities with a 12MP iSight camera with improved local tone mapping and reduced noise. It also features Live Photos, an innovative way to bring still photos to life. Live Photos capture the moments before and after you snap photos, transforming those unforgettable moments into living memories.
More Features of iPhone 6s
One advancement of iPhone 6s that has photographers and videographers buzzing is its ability to shoot 4K video. That's video with a resolution four times higher than the iPhone 6's HD video. This is going to look stunning on your Ultra HD TV. Also separating iPhone 6s is faster WiFi, a faster processor chip in the A9, a faster Touch ID security to unlock your phone using a fingerprint, and wider range of colour options, like gold and rose gold.
Before You Buy iPhone 6s
Now that you're champing at the bit for iPhone 6s, we need to remind you that in order to purchase an iPhone 6s you must activate it at a Best Buy store. You can use our Reserve and Pickup option, but don't forget to bring two pieces of government identification so a Best Buy associate can activate the phone. This includes one piece of photo identification like a Provincial ID, Driver's License, Citizenship Card, or Passport.
