iPhone 6s and 6s plus
The new iPhones integrate a new 3D Touch technology which enables new gestures, such as holding an app icon for shortcuts to various actions or using a hard press to preview links (the video below explains 3D touch a little better).
Both the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus come with the new A9 chip which is proposed to be up to 70 percent faster at CPU tasks and 90 percent faster for graphic tasks than the previous model. iOS 9 will come standard with News and Apple Music app. Current iPhone users will be able to download iOS 9 on September 16 2015.
The phone will also feature a new “Hey Siri” integration that lets you speak the prompt to bring up Siri instead of holding the home button. The camera now has a 12MP iSight camera with 50 percent more pixels and faster auto-focus and the ability to shoot 4K videos as well.
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be available from 25/9/2015.
The new iPad Pro brings a slightly larger screen at 12.9 inches to accommodate gaming, entertainment, a full-size software keyboard and a multi-tasking tool. iPad Pro’s packing 2732 x 2048 pixels, making 5.6 million pixels in total. That’s even denser than a MacBook Pro with Retina display, says Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller.
iPad Pro runs on the new A9x 64-bit chip that is 1.8 times faster than the previous generation, with a display that features variable refresh rate. Apple says iPad Pro boasts roughly 10 hours of battery life per charge, measures 6.9 mm thin, weighs roughly 1.5 pounds and has a 8MP camera.
