The iPhone 6S received a nice overhaul, and like I’ve blogged about before, this model is bringing a lot of new features to the table which were long overdue. Pre-iPhone 6 users, will get a really nice upgrade value bang for the buck with the new camera system and 3D Touch.

Waiting for iPhone 7 will pay off - iPhone specs history in graphs

Apple has never been the company that is keen on publishing specifications about their new products, until some years ago.
