Apple India to launch iPhone 6S, 6S Plus on Oct 16


Apple has announced that it will launch the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus in India on October 16. This will be the fastest iPhone rollout ever for the Indian market, coming less than a month after the latest models became available globally.

Apple also added that it sold over 13 million units of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus on the first three days of their availability, breaking the sales record of 10 million units set last year by iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

While there is no increment in screen size in iPhone 6S (4.7-inch HD) and iPhone 6S (5.5-inch Full HD) compared to last year’s models, they feature a new 3D Touch display technology, which allows them to differentiate between types of touches and taps in preloaded apps as well as on the homescreen.

Both iPhones are powered by the new A9 processor with 2GB RAM and run on iOS 9 operating system. They come in 3 storage variants: 16, 64, and 128GB; there is no support for microSD cards for storage expansions. The rear cameras of the two smartphones have 12MP resolution, backed by dual-tone dual-LED flash, while the front cameras have 5MP sensors. A new camera feature of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus is Live Photos, which can turn photos into short videos.
