iPhone 6S/6S+Knowledge concerning the S rendition of the iPhone 6/6+ is based on rumors and leaks; the following features are not confirmed to be on the phone. That being said, there are many expectations for the new iPhone. Most of them are internal, but there are a few external ones. The iPhone will be expected to come out on the normal colors (gold, silver, and space gray) and the highly expected rose gold color, in addition to a new glass screen (similar to gorilla glass) and a stronger aluminum body. Other features added to the device are internal.

The new iPhone’s features wont’ be seen at a first glance, however they will highly improve the user’s experience. It is predicted that the camera will be upgraded 12 MP, allowing for much better pictures, and the anterior camera will also receive an upgrade to 5 MP and will have a wider range, allowing better selfies with more people. Given the new 12 MP camera, the phone will be able to capture 4K video (extremely high definition).  Its new screen will incorporate the revolutionary force touch feature, which has enjoyed much success since its implementation in the Apple Watch. A brand new A9 chip will replace the 6’s A8 chip. In turn, the chip will allow for faster LTE and will use less battery, making the phone much more efficient.

“I am nothing but excited and looking forward to the experience of using iOS 9,” freshman Kevin Alvarez said.

With CarPlay, an iPhone can be connected to a car without needing to plug it in. iPad users will make iPhone users jealous with an exclusive feature for their device. Multitasking will be the revolutionary feature that will allow to use two apps at once. Keyboard enhancements will allow for easier text selection and there will be plenty of shortcuts that will make typing a lot easier.
