Hands-on with a iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

September 10, 2015 - photo frame

“The usually thing that’s altered is everything,” Apple pronounced about the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus during Wednesday’s Apple event. That’s both loyal and untrue. The box looks flattering many a same, a shade sizes didn’t change, and a entry-level indication still has a insignificant 16GB of storage. But inside it’s an all-new iPhone with some considerable new capabilities.

I got hands-on time with a new models, and even nonetheless a display didn’t blow me away, a new 3D Touch and Live Photos facilities broach a pleasant experience.

Live Photos

“What is a picture?” pondered Phil Schiller on stage. After some-more than an hour and a half of keynote, this wasn’t a philosophical discuss we was vehement about having. But he had a point: A print is a still picture of a moment, yet a impulse can have a beginning, middle, and finish that one support can’t always entirely represent. Enter Apple’s new Live Photo feature. It’s on by default in a categorical Camera app, and if we leave it on, it automatically captures 1.5 seconds, er, moments before and after your shiver press.

That sounds like a video, yet Apple says it’s not a video. These are 12-megapixel photos prisoner by a behind iSight camera, and if we send them to a crony who’s regulating iOS 9 or El Capitan, an animation comes with. (And if we send them anywhere else, they arrive as plain JPEGs like usual.)

Flipping by a Live Photos in a Camera Roll, you’ll see a small glance of a animation—it’s usually adequate suit to let we heed a Live Photo from a customary one. When we press harder on a Live Photo (a scheme Apple calls 3D Touch on a new iPhones), you’ll see a full 3 seconds of motion.

I have a 3-year-old, and a lot of my photos of him breeze adult becloud given during slightest some partial of his physique is in suit probably all of a time—the child is a walking wiggle. we don’t consider we get to dumpy by a Live Photo support by support and collect out a singular still picture that’s not blurry, yet removing to see an animation of one of his wiggles would kick any becloud photo, or one where his eyes are closed.

Developers will get to use Live Photos too—Facebook is operative on ancillary a feature, aiming to finish by a finish of this year. But even if they never leave a iPhone itself, Live Photos are usually plain cool. You can even use one as your close shade wallpaper, and afterwards 3D Touch it to make it move.

3D Touch

3D Touch, we ask? Yup, that’s a other large underline disdainful to a iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. It works usually like Force Touch on a Apple Watch—you press harder, like you’re perplexing to pull right by a screen, and that’s a opposite kind of hold than a unchanging appropriate or tap. This will let we correlate with apps (from Apple and third parties) in new ways.
