iPhone 6s details

What our expert says

The iPhone 6s has much of the same tech as the iPhone 6 - but with a few upgrades that make it even better. The design is essentially the same, with a hardy 4.7-inch Gorilla Glass screen and smooth metal back, though the aluminium is even stronger than before. The phone is also a little thicker, most likely to make room for 3D Touch - a clever touchscreen tech that means you can perform different actions by touching the screen in a different way. Along with the 6s Plus, it's the first of Apple's range to feature the iOS 9 operating system, which comes with some new apps and an improved Siri - as well as a Low Power mode for better battery life. The phone also sees a jump up from the old iPhone cameras, to a new 12MP one that can even record 4K video. However, it doesn't have an SD card slot - and picking a model with more internal memory, which you'll need if you want to make use of that 4K video recorder, won't come cheap. Nonetheless, the iPhone 6s is still one of the best mobiles on the market.
