New iPhones, Apple

An improved camera and new touch interface are big new features

+ READ ARTICLE

Apple unveiled its newest iPhones at an event in San Francisco Wednesday.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will have the same screen sizes as last year’s iPhone 6 (4.7 inches) and iPhone 6 Plus (5.5 inches). However, the new phones boast a number of new features.

The biggest change is a new interface system Apple has dubbed 3D Touch. The new iPhones have pressure-sensitive screens that can differentiate between a tap and a hard press. The new feature will enable a wide range of new shortcuts and the ability to “peek” into apps with a tap and then return to the previous screen simply by letting go of the screen.

In a demo, Apple used the functionality in a Mail app to glance at an email by tapping the screen and then return to the inbox by letting go of the message.

The new iPhones will also feature significantly improved cameras. The main rear-facing camera will be 12 megapixels, a 50% boost from the iPhone 6’s 8 megapixels, while the front-facing camera will be 5 megapixels. The camera will also be able to shoot in 4K, a super high resolution that provides extremely high image quality.

A new quirk of the camera system is a feature called Live Photos. By default, the new iPhones will automatically capture 1.5 seconds before and after any picture, and users will be able to play those frames in a GIF-like animation when they press down on the image. Apple says the animated photos won’t take up significantly more space than regular pictures.

The new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available Sept. 25 starting at $199 and $299, respectively. Apple will also begin offering an iPhone Upgrade Program, wherein customers can spend $32 a month to upgrade to the latest iPhone every year.
