Apple IPhone 6s And IPhone 6s Plus Event - What To Expect

By 12:35 Tue, 27 Jul 2021 Comments

If you are an Apple fan who can't wait to acquire your hands on the next iPhone or are simply a devoted smartphone fan, then today is definitely a joyous occasion. Cupertino scheduled the grand event for today at 5PM GMT and the stars of the show will definitely be the recent iPhone 6s and 6s Plus duo. In a welcome change of pace, Apple has promised a live stream freely accessible for everybody, not just Apple device owners. So, getting a live feed will hopefully be easier this time around and you can follow the announcements in real time.

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

As for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus – their names are in keeping with Apple tradition and signify that they should be upgraded versions of the existing 6 and 6 Plus duo, rather than bring a recent design. This is generally the case with "s" iterations and it’s a fine thing too as current accessories should be quite compatible with your shiny recent iPhone. Be warned, though, quite a few rumors are recommending that that both the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be slightly thicker than their predecessors and there are a few fine reasons to believe so.

For one, it is almost certain that Apple has equipped its recent smartphones with the Force Touch technology it introduced in its Watch and MacBook family. The extra layer of hardware does hold up some space, but should also bring an array of exciting recent gestures and features to the device.

Another possible culprit for the extra girth is the all recent capturing camera setup. The next iPhone generation will allegedly be getting a long-overdue capturing camera upgrade, replacing the recent 8MP main shooter with a 12MP one, which will also capture 4K videos. Sadly, not much else is knows about the capturing camera in terms of special focus systems or optical image stabilization, which, if present, definitely hold up more room as well.

The front capturing camera might also be getting a significant bump. There is not much to go by, but an alleged front panel was recently leaked that had some extra space for a larger selfie shooter lens.

As for the rest of the specs, we can expect the same 4.7” and 5.5” display variants, but resolution upgrades are definitely not out of the question. The computing will come courtesy of a recent A9 chip and there has been quite a controversy about the memory. What was initially considered to be 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) was later disputed with claims of retaining the current amount of 1GB. We can't really be sure which leak to trust and it could swing either way, but to be honest Random-Access Memory (RAM) has never been a major issue in the iOS realm.

Storage, on the other hand, is quite a different story, with a lot of current iPhone users finding the basic 16GB option as a small constraining. Sadly, sources currently claim the same storage options for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus as well – 16GB, 64GB and 128GB. We are not sure how that is going to pan out if 4K video capture become a reality as well.

Last, but definitely not least, there is the question of availability and price. From what we have hears so far, it appears the two iPhones will go up for preorder on September 11 and should be hitting retail stores around September 18, which is more or less in tune with what we have seen in previous years. Pricing should also be quite comparable with the current generation, perhaps even unchanged, according to a leaked Dutch source.

iPad Pro

Apple will most likely unveil at least a few other things at today's conference and one other device that has made a comeback to the rumor mill is the iPad Pro. The concept for a large 12.9-inch tablet is actually far from recent and has been around since January 2014, but a few recent renders and elevated interest on the matter have once again rekindled hopes that Apple is finally going to create the spacious tablet a reality.

As for specs of the iPad Pro, we don’t really have any substantial leaks to go by, but we definitely expect powerful hardware, perhaps an A9x chip, which would allow the device to run two iOS apps side by side.

Force Touch should also be part of the bundle, although there have also been some odd claims of a separate Force Touch stylus and even a second-classy screen Smart cover.

Next-gen Apple TV

As an extra treat, it appears that Apple might showcase yet another recent piece of hardware at the venue – a recent Apple TV. The device is assumed to be more-powerful then previous generation with a recent remote that could double as a controller, making the box marketable as a gaming rig.

The plot thickens further with speculations of a dedicated segment in the App Store, specifically for getting games for the recent TV box, which is assumed to cost about $150. Analysts don't really expect anything too powerful that could hold on the likes of Microsoft's Xbox One of Sony's PS4, but rather a device geared to the casual gamer.

If executed properly the reportedly A8 SoC-based unit could bring the thriving iOS gaming industry to a bigger screen.
