Ed­i­tor’s let­ter

Ap­ple’s lat­est in its cat­e­gory-defin­ing line of smart­phones has launched, and Aus­tralianT3 presents the ul­ti­mate guide!

Australian T3 - - EDITOR'S LETTER - Paul Tay­lor, Ed­i­tor paul.tay­lor03@fu­turenet.com

That’s the iPhone 6s in case you were won­der­ing, not that you could’ve missed it splashed across the front of the cover, and it’s a curious up­grade. Where re­vi­sions of hard­ware are gen­er­ally lighter and slim­mer, the 6s is like a Rolls-Royce Phan­tom – larger but faster, and ev­ery bit as lux­u­ri­ous as you might ex­pect. The brand­new 3D touch fea­ture shows that there’s still a lot of sur­prises to come from smart­phones yet, and we cover ev­ery­thing that Ap­ple’s new phone does in great de­tail on page 32.

In fact, be­ing big­ger and faster seems to be a trend for Ap­ple, as you’ll see in our iPad Pro re­view (p70), the tablet that’s gun­ning for the – al­most lit­eral – big boys in the lap­top space. Not to be out­done, Mi­crosoft’s Sur­face Book (p11) steps up, and this touch-screen lap­top hy­brid cer­tainly looks like it’s do­ing ev­ery­thing it can to shock Ap­ple to its core.

Away from the screen and into the elec­tric dream, as we test three cars that ditch fos­sil fu­els com­pletely. Elec­tric cars once seemed like the stuff of fan­tasy, but as the likes of wun­derkind Tesla has proved, they are the fu­ture, and it’s hap­pen­ing right now. You’ll find out more on page 46.

Fi­nally, long-time read­ers will willw no­tice the face to the right has changed. Hello, it’s a plea­sure to meet you, and I’m thrilled to be tak­ing charge of the good ship T3. I’d also like to ex­tend my thanks to out­go­ing ed­i­tor Rob for his fine work, and I dare say you’ll still see his name crop up in th­ese pages yet.

Enjoy the is­sue.
