The iPhone 6s vs. the iPhone 6: what’s changed?

by John_A

iPhone 6sWe’ve just wrapped up this year’s big iPhone event, which means iPhone owners now get to ponder over whether or not to upgrade their handsets. It’s easy enough when there are plenty of cosmetic changes and new features to really distinguish a new iPhone from your old one, but this time around we’re looking at an iterative ‘S’ version where, aside from a new rose gold color, the improvements are not always obvious at first glance. Fortunately, we’ve got the specs for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s lined up for your perusal right here. So you can decide whether it’s got enough additional oomph for you to dig out your wallet now, or wait until next year’s edition instead.
