iPhone fam­ily

The world’s best smart­phone is now even smarter – and packed with great fea­tures

Mac Format - - BUYER’S GUIDE -

Ever since the iPhone first ar­rived in 2007, Ap­ple has worked hard to con­ti­nously en­hance and im­prove its de­sign and fea­tures, some­thing that has helped it be­come one of the most suc­cess­ful smart­phones ever made. That’s par­tic­u­larly true of the brand new iPhone 6s Plus model, which brings a new way to in­ter­act with your iPhone us­ing 3D Touch – a fea­ture that en­ables you to carry out dif­fer­ent ac­tions, such as ‘peek’ and ‘pop’ by per­form­ing dif­fer­ent length presses on its touch­screen dis­play.

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus of­fer huge im­prove­ments in other ar­eas too: from beefed-up rear iSight cam­eras that now of­fer 12MP of res­o­lu­tion and 4K video record­ing to faster Ap­ple-de­signed A9 chipsets with M9 mo­tion co­pro­ces­sors.

Of course, both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus build on the ad­vances made by their pre­de­ces­sors – par­tic­u­larly the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which are not only still very much avail­able, but are also highly ca­pa­ble and af­ford­able de­vices in their own right. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, of course, in­tro­duced a slim­mer, more rounded iPhone de­sign, while also offering big­ger screens – 4.7-inches on the iPhone 6 and 5.5-inches on the iPhone 6 Plus. Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are ca­pa­ble of run­ning the lat­est version of iOS – iOS 9 – and in­clude fea­tures such as Touch ID, to help keep your iPhone and your pre­cious data se­cure.

And if you’re on a bud­get the iPhone 5s is still avail­able too. Like the phones that fol­lowed it, the iPhone 5s is 4G ready and can be yours from just £379.
