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. In the pre-Samsung times, they have always highlighted unique features and use cases which were eagerly demoed by Steve and Phil.

Did Apple made the new iPhones too thin for the beauty of aesthetics, and from aluminium instead of Samsung-plastic™?

Apple had to come out with an official statement and so it happend, they even introduced the collective press to the unrevealed Cupertino testing facilities, something they’d also done after the iPhone 4 #antennagate. They came with the following statement;

How are we consuming our daily app - petite for mobile content every day?
