iPhone 6S Unboxing and Review

A first look at the new iPhone 6s

In this video review we are unboxing the new iPhone 6s that was released today and having a quick look at some of the new key features.

The new iPhone 6s is very similar in form factor to the previous version, the iPhone 6, as is normal with the S iteration of iPhones.

The big new feature of the iPhone 6s is 3D Touch. This uses force sensors to figure out how much pressure you are applying to your touch and uses this for new contextual menus. When you press once on the screen you can preview or 'peek' at things in a list, such as, emails or iMessages. Then press harder again and the message will 'pop' into the screen. It is actually a very useful feature and feels incredibly natural to do.

We also play around with the new 'Live Photos’ feature of the iPhone 6s which look like they could be good fun.

The iPhone 6s also features two new cameras. A 5 megapixel front facing camera, or selfie camera and a 12 megapixel rear camera that could prove to be the best camera we have ever seen on a phone. I will be playing with the new camera for the next few days and then putting up a full review later in the week.

Check out the new iPhone 6s for yourself over on the Apple website.
