Old iPhones Compared To 2015 iPhone 6s / 6s Plus

At iOS9news, we planned to come up with a comparison chart that shows you the difference between 2014 models of iPhones and the latest iPhones that were released at the Apple Keynote event on September 9th, 2015.

Fortunately, Apple has come up with a comparison page that puts iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s (both 2015 models) against iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, and iPhone 5s.

They have certainly made out work easier. You can access the chart by going to this page.


Did you notice how lengthy it is? Of course, such comparison charts can be tough to consume, so here’s a quick summary of what’s changed with the new iPhone 2015 models:

Camera Upgraded:
Now the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus comes with a 12MP iSight camera, and they can take live photos (kind of like GIF). FaceTime camera now captures 5 MP photos compared to 1.2 MP photos captured from last year’s iPhones.

Chip Changed: Both the new iPhone models have A9 chip. Previous generations were bundled with A8 chip.

Storage Improved: Thought we would only see 16GB, 64GB internal storage… but now the new models are also available with 128GB storage space. Even old models have 128 GB storage, but they are unavailable for purchase at the moment.

Video Support: 4K videos are now supported, which means you can capture incredibly high-quality videos at 30 FPS right from your iPhone. This video can also be edited.

Of course, there are many more addition, such as 3DTouch, a stronger aluminum panel, and a rigid screen. Plus, the new 2015 models have iOS 9 pre-installed.

Some call it a “miss” but given that it is “6s” and not “7” – we expected such minor upgrades that are still solid.
