After months of rumour and speculation, Apple has been showing off its new iPhones at a media event in San Francisco: The iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus. The major updates for 2015 are a new 3D Touch input system, significant internal upgrades and an improved camera, including a new Live Photos format.
The outside design of the handsets has barely changed since last year, but there's a lot to talk about in terms of internal components. The 3D Touch is an upgraded version of the Force Touch available on the Apple Watch and the latest MacBooks – it recognizes different levels of pressure and gives apps a new input option (in the same way as a right-click on a computer does).
In an on-stage demo, Apple executives used 3D Touch to quickly preview email contents and maps; it's also possible to hold-and-press on an app icon to access shortcuts within the app (so you can jump straight to selfie mode in the Camera app, for example).
There's a new A9 chip powering everything inside the new iPhones, which Apple says is 70-90 percent faster than its 2014 predecessor, the A8, alongside a new M9 motion coprocessor. Apple also says its Touch ID fingerprint recognition now works twice as fast as before.
