Both handsets feature 3D Touch and 128 GB variants, as well as the new rose gold metallic finish option.

Apple has announced earlier today "the most advanced iPhones ever," namely iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Their main highlight is 3D Touch, "which senses force to enable intuitive new ways to access features and interact with content," but the changes do not stop here.

Both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus have the display protected by "the strongest glass on any smartphone" and use 7000 series aluminum for the case. This alloy is currently used in the aerospace industry. Next to 3D Touch, the new handsets also introduce Live Photos, a feature described by the official press release as "a transformative new approach to photography." While iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus feature an 8 MP iSight camera, their successors come with a 12 MP iSight image snapper on the back.

Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus use an A9 chip and, unlike their predecessors can be purchased in rose gold finish. Storage has also been pushed up to 128 GB. Pre-orders begin this Saturday ($649 USD for 6s and $749 USD starting price of the 6s Plus) and shipments will start Friday, September 25. For more details, please check the press release.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
