When Will iOS 12 Be Promoted?

The date of WWDC 2018, where Apple introduces new software every year, has begun to be clarified. It is actually one of the biggest event in the world because global tech lovers keep waiting for it for the rest of the year. This is the time we are officially informed of new Apple softwares and products such as iOS 12 and iPhone SE 2. Well, when will this event be organized in 2018?

When will iOS 12 be promoted?

Apple is organizing an event for developers and other tech lovers every June. Known as the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), this event introduces new software for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV and Apple Watch. Apart from the software, the new MacBook models are also introduced.

WWDC-2018-ios 12

There is no official statement from Apple about when WWDC 2018 will be held. It is estimated that the company will choose the McEnery Convention Center in California like the event in the previous year. The McEnery Convention Center is reserved for other events to be held during the second, third and fourth weeks of June. The first week of June (4-8 June) looks available on the reservation list of the congress center.

Apple does not have Apple’s name on the list of the congress center until the announcement of the event dates. For this reason we can say that WWDC 2018 will take place between June 4-8. iOS 12 is also likely to be promoted on Monday, June 4, the first day of your event.

On WWDC 2018, iOS 12, macOS 10.14, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12 will be introduced. The event is expected to introduce new Macbook models and the iPad Pro with Face ID, as well.

In the past year, 5000 developers and 1000 Apple engineers attended the conference and the ticket prices are around $1,599. Tickets are offered as a result of the lottery drawn between those who want to participate in the event.

Are Release Date and Feature of iPhone SE 2 Clear?

According to information given on the China-based website, it is claimed to promote the iPhone SE 2 model at WWDC 2018, the gigantic event where Apple is meeting with software developers. Despite the fact that many of the arguments make sense, some of the details reveals that this is not a total information, but the estimation.

Before making sure of the release date, let’s have a look at the features of iPhone SE 2.

What will the iPhone SE 2 offer?

The A10 processor, with 2 GB of RAM and two storage options of 32 GB or 128 GB, is expected to continue to use the Touch ID security system instead of switching to Face ID. Apple wants to keep Touch ID in order to keep up with iOS 12 and keep costs low. In SE 2, which will be a model that Apple considers the costs, Apple’s previous generation of processors will be preferred.

iphone se 2 release

Along with this information, it is claimed that the screen size will increase to 4.2 inches. If there is such a change, the rate may be effective even if it plays a lot, but it can change the entire design language. This change is unquestionable that the SE series will affect the comfort of use.

Except for this information, according to the KGI report, there was an allegation that we could face a refurbished SE model with 4.7″ screen and wireless charging doping. However, the date of the report was quite old. KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo denied claims about radically changing screen-to-screen ratio, wireless charging support, and 3D sensing.

Since summer, rumors are circulating about iPhone SE. Ming-Chi Kuo stated that he did not hear anything about such innovations, and that such and such estimates are a speculation. If we were to quickly sort out the described and definite technical specifications of the device:

  • 4.2 inch HD screen
  • Apple A10 chipset
  • 2 GB RAM and 32 – 128 GB ROM
  • 5 Mp front camera, 12 Mp rear camera
  • 1700 mAh battery

What’s coming with iOS 11.3?

Performance issue is being resolved with iOS 11.3, the next version of iOS operating system. In addition, Apple announced the coming innovations with iOS 11.3 on its website. Let’s take a look at the innovations that will come together.

Test results of IOS 11.3, which is made available for developers, emerged. It can be seen that performance in published GeekBench scores clearly increased.

The single core result has risen from 1306 to 1510. In the test where all the cores are used, the scissors in the middle is getting more open. The multi-core score of 2247 goes up to 1621 with the 11.3 version.

New Animoji Characters

The animation that comes with iPhone X, thanks to TrueDepth camera technology, allows you to send emoticons in three dimensions by sensing your facial expressions.

With iOS 11.3, there are 4 new animations. These are lions, bears, dragons and skulls. With these 4 animations, there will be a total of 16 animations that iPhone users can use.

Augmented Reality technology was one of the issues that became important with iOS 11. With iOS 11.3, the operating system’s AR technology goes even further. With ARKit 1.5, which comes with iOS 11.3, horizontal surfaces such as tables and chairs can now be detected on vertical surfaces such as walls or doors. At the same time, the ARKit is now able to perceive items with irregular shapes such as a round table.

On the other hand, another feature that comes to mind about AR is 2D stuff. Plates, posters or works of art can now be perceived by ARKIT. The user will be able to interactively view 2D items on the camera. For example, by reading the poster of a work of art in a museum, you will be able to see and experience the 3-dimensional state of that work on your phone. Finally, for ARKIT, the camera will offer 50% better resolution and will have support for auto focus.

iOS 11.3 apple

Battery and Performance

New information is added to the Battery tab in the Settings app with iOS 11.3. Users may have information about the health of the battery under the battery tab and whether it should take it away.

Let’s just say that this feature will only be available after iPhone 6 and later.

At the same time, the power management system, which reduces the processor speed, can be turned off in case of short battery life and shortened battery life in order to extend the life of the device.

Commercial chat feature

Another feature that comes to the fore in iOS 11.3 is commercial chat. Offered under the name Business Chat, this feature allows customers to communicate with the organization only by messaging without having to go to or search for the institution. This feature, which will be released as Beta with 11.3, will initially be supported by Wells Fargo, Hilton, Lowe’s, Discover and a number of other companies.

The customer will be able to make hotel reservations through Apple Payments by messaging with the relevant institution. Yada will be able to purchase a chair that she likes to chat with Lowe’s. If the feature will be coming to Turkey and it will be supported by the company which is currently unclear. One of the highlighted features is that Apple does not forward the contact information of the client to the related companies.

Tim Cook’s graduation talk was announced with Animoji!

Duke University announces Tim Cook’s graduation talks to be held in May with an Animoji video on YouTube.

Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, graduated from Duke University in 1988. As a graduate student, Tim Cook will make a speech on graduation ceremony on May 13th and this event has turned into a great gesture from the University of Duke.

Tim Cook in Animoji videos

Duke University announces in the form of Animoji that Tim Cook will speak on graduation via YouTube channel. Tim Cook is probably Duke’s most famous alum at the moment, so it makes sense that he accepted to speak to the graduating students in May, but the foxy form he appears in at the end of the video shows how proud Apple is of its iPhone X’s FaceID and Animoji creations.

You can watch the Animoji video here, which Tim Cook also plays.

Duke University President Vincent E. Price made the announcement, touting Cook’s accomplishments at both Apple and in his advocacy for social justice. Duke’s graduation will be held on Sunday, May 13, 2018.

“I am absolutely delighted that Tim Cook will be returning to campus as this spring’s commencement speaker,” said Price. “Throughout his career, Tim has embodied Duke’s values of innovation and service to society, whether through his contributions to Apple’s groundbreaking technology or his advocacy for social justice. I can imagine no better person, and no bigger Duke fan, to inspire the Class of 2018.”

Thanks to the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera system on the iPhoneX, Animoji has become popular with karaoke videos in a short period of time. Animoji, which is quite fun to use in everyday life, has given also a pleasing news when it is used in an announcement.

We anticipate adding new features to the Animoji options with future iOS updates in the upcoming period.

How to test iPhone battery?

Apple has made a scandalous statement in recent days, saying that iPhone slows down because of battery health drops. Although they apologized to the users upon reactions, users want to be aware of the iPhone battery test.

iPhone battery test is easy!

It is quite easy for iPhone users to test the health of their batteries, and it is now possible to see the status of your battery in a very simple way thanks to the well-known application called Battery Life, developed by a developer named Victor Robinson. This application, which has a fairly simple interface, is available free of charge on the AppStore.

iphone-battery test

You can download the Battery Life application using this link and measure your iPhone battery health. The app is described as “Did you ever worry about your battery? Battery Life give you information to let our know more about your devices’ battery.” on AppStore.

It is already rated by 81 users and it got 3.5 points out of 5. One of the users also left a comment indicating, “Need to improve visuality. Other things work good. Can see design capacity. It’s done.” This comment is accompanied by a 5 stars.

Get a Discounted Battery From Apple

Since Apple’s confessed to slowing down old iPhones with degraded batteries, the company has gone on to offer a discount on replacement batteries, after classifying them as consumable components. It will also update iOS 11 itself to include more detailed information about your battery.

Instead of the usual $79 charge for replacing a battery out of warranty, you can get it replaced by Apple for $29 beginning in late January 2018. The company will release more details about the process “soon,” according to a press release.

If you’ve got a bad battery, you could always replace it at the Apple Store. You could also take it to a smartphone repair retailer, though you’ll be paying an estimated $69.99, which seems a bit steep compared to the alternative.

IOS update about slow iPhone is on the way!

Apple CEO Tim Cook came up with an explanation on iPhones that are slowing down. Cook said that with an iOS update, users would be able to enrich the iPhone’s performance.

Apple’s iPhones are slowing down and this issue is protecting the place on the agenda due to lawsuits and explanations. A feature that the company adds to iOS versions in order to prevent iPhone from closing down due to battery problems is slowing iPhone down.

iphone_slow down


There was general consensus among users that Apple slowed iPhone with every iOS update. This situation became clear with the admission from the company regarding the matter. Apple apologized to users and made serious discounts on battery replacement. However, users continue to react to this policy of the company.

People are getting angry at Apple

This reaction has turned into a mass action. Recently in South Korea, 370,000 people applied to the court for the slow iPhone. This has probably caused Apple to take more serious steps in the matter. Tim Cook, who has not commented on the subject so far, said they would come up with an iOS update that would prevent iPhones from slowing down in a statement to ABC News.

The update that Tim Cook mentions is about whether users’ iPhone performance will be lowered. The user will be able to use the device with full performance if they prefer. Cook said that iPhone owners would be able to get rid of the performance degradation they are bringing to prevent the iPhone from closing down one by one.

Cook indicated that the iPhone battery status of the update would also be shown. Apple has previously announced that the company will publish an iOS update to learn the iPhone battery health.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were also included among the iPhones that slowed down depending on the battery condition with iOS 11.2. The update Tim Cook mentioned (probably iOS 11.3) will start testing from February. It will probably be released in March.

Apple explained why old iPhones are slowing down

Over the years, users have noticed that older model iPhones slow down over time. The users who constantly voiced this on many platforms have finally got their explanations. This process, which began with Reddit users noticing that Apple slowed old iPhones with low-capacity batteries, ended with Apple’s statement.

iPhone users are now confident that Apple’s CPU speed has been reduced due to battery capacity over time. Over time, Geekbench developer John Poole, who revealed the performance difference between iPhone 6S and iPhone 7, revealed that Apple’s iOS 10.2.1 and 11.2.0 updates initiate processor reduction for different devices. Especially the iOS 10.2.1 update is surprising because this update was specifically designed to reduce random shutdown problems for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. Apparently Apple is restricting the CPU to prevent a random shutdown of the phone. Moreover, Geekbench also reports that iOS 11.2.0 offers similar reduction methods for the iPhone 7 series with older batteries.

iPhone users who do not resort to this method are likely to get a top-of-the-line iPhone. People can be thinking that “I need to change my iPhone”, not “I am changing my battery as my iPhone is slow.”

Apple did not reject these findings. However, they explained that this was not the intention of the company in explaining what they did:

Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions. We’ve now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future.

iOS 11.2 Beta 6 Update Is Available

Apple is on the stage with the iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update. We wanted to update you with the details of iOS 11.2 Beta 6, which does not offer much innovation compared to other Beta versions. This release was right after the release of iOS 11.2 to the general public.

Apple recently released iOS 11.2 Beta 6 for developers surprisingly right after releasing iOS 11.2 Beta 5. The early release of the iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update with bug fixes and performance improvements make us expect that the final version of iOS 11.2 will be released by mid-December. We will wait and see what will happen.

With the iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update, there are the very same innovations in previous beta releases. However, the iMessage feature on iCloud mentioned in WWDC 17 is not available with this update either. We probably will need to wait for iOS 11.3 for this.

A small line will be added under the icons in the upper right corner of the iPhone X showing the battery status and the activation of the position system. Thus, it will try to be forwarded to the user who opens the notification center. An innovation coming for the iPhone X will be 7.5W fast charging support. With the update, iPhone Xs will be charging faster.

ios 11 2 beta 6

There will be two notification texts in the Control Center explaining why Wi-Fi and Bluetooth cannot be permanently turned off. Thus, the user will be told that this is not a fault and is part of the system’s way of working.

When a quick key is pressed in the calculator, an error will be corrected which causes some operations to be bypassed. All animations in the calculator application will be removed for you to perform error-free and fast operations.

How to install the iOS 11.2 Beta 6

If you have a developer account; you can install iOS 11.2 Beta 6 updates from Settings> General> Software Update.

iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update is available for iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, 12.9 inch iPad Pro, 2nd generation 12.9 inch iPad Pro, 1st generation 10.5 inch iPad Pro, 9.7 inch iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 5th generation, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2 and iPod Touch 6th generation model.

Apple Never Stops: Rumours About New iPhone XI

iPhone 8 and iPhone X are still brand-new products, but Apple does not seem to wait to long for releasing another iPhone. Apple launched the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X in September and November 2017 and rumours about the next iPhone has already come out in technology world.

Nobody knows the possible name of this new one, iPhone 9, iPhone 11, iPhoneXI, iPhone X Plus are among the guesses of tech lovers. It is highly possible that the current models will be on the top of smartphone market and September 2018 might be best time for launching the latest iPhone. It is not just us, many people think that way.

What can be different in 2018 model?

iPhone offers various screen sizes and the brand may add another alternative with even larger sizes. 6.0 or 6.5 inches are highly possible to exist in Apple Stores in 2018. The resolution is another feature to be developed. For now, Apple offers resolutions of 2436×1125 & 458 pixels per inch in iPhone X, 1920×1080 & 401ppi in iPhone 8 Plus and 1334×750 & 326ppi iPhone 8. So it is possible to find out iPhone XI (let’s call the next phone this way) with a resolution of  2688×1242 & 459ppi.

iPhone XI may also have a better screen with high quality glass. Cracks on screen or even broken screens are not few in number. This is why the brand may choose to eliminate this number.

iPhone prices in 2018

iPhone X starting from £999/$999 is the most expensive smartphone in the world (right now towards the end of 2017). We do not think there will be a higher price in 2018. Or there will be a budget-friendly new option to compete with the highly priced iPhones. Because only the older models are affordable for many people, Apple may create an new an affordable alternative. At least we hope that! Time will let us know what will happen in 2018.

Selfie Scenes for immersive, 360-degree selfies on iPhone X

Apple just recently announced a major update to Clips, the free app for iOS that makes it easy to create and share fun videos using iPhone or iPad. Clips introduces Selfie Scenes and adds artistic style transfer effects and a redesigned interface that makes it easier than ever to create great videos on the go.

Selfie Scenes is an exciting new feature that places users into animated, 360-degree scenes when recording selfies. Using the sophisticated TrueDepth camera system on iPhone X, Selfie Scenes transports users into bustling cities, serene landscapes, abstract paintings and even the Millennium Falcon and Mega-Destroyer from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

“Clips users love how quick and easy it is to create amazing videos on iPhone or iPad,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Apps Product Marketing. “And we’re making it even more fun with Selfie Scenes. By harnessing the incredible new TrueDepth camera system on iPhone X, users can now record selfies against a variety of fun and whimsical backdrops with just a tap.”


New Effects and Stickers with better interface

New artistic effects use advanced machine learning and style transfer technology to turn any photo or video into a moody oil painting, vibrant watercolor or elegant pencil sketch — in real time while recording. Clips also adds more content from Disney, including full-screen posters featuring Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, as well as Star Wars stickers featuring animated versions of Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Chewbacca and others. Users can also add more personality to their Clips videos with 16 new Apple-designed stickers and 21 new royalty-free soundtracks from indie artists. And, as with all Clips soundtracks, these new tracks automatically adjust to match the length of videos.

The easy-to-use interface gets even better with a streamlined design that puts frequently used controls easily within reach. A new Effects browser lets users view and choose filters, labels, stickers and emoji. Labeled buttons make it easier than ever to edit Live Titles, add or change filters, trim, mute and delete clips. And full-screen browsers allow users to see more of their content when viewing their photo library or selecting animated posters.

What Happened In Apple During The Forth Quarter of 2017?

Apple has recently announced financial results for its fiscal 2017 fourth quarter ended September 30, 2017. The Company posted quarterly revenue of $52.6 billion, an increase of 12 percent from the year-ago quarter, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $2.07, up 24 percent. International sales accounted for 62 percent of the quarter’s revenue.

Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO said, “With fantastic new products including iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple TV 4K joining our product lineup, we’re looking forward to a great holiday season, and with the launch of iPhone X getting underway right now, we couldn’t be more excited as we begin to deliver our vision for the future with this stunning device.”

“Apple’s year-over-year revenue growth rate accelerated for the fourth consecutive quarter and drove EPS growth of 24 percent in the September quarter,” said Luca Maestri, Apple’s CFO. “We also generated strong operating cash flow of $15.7 billion and returned $11 billion to investors through our capital return program.”Apple is providing the following guidance for its fiscal 2018 first quarter:

  • revenue between $84 billion and $87 billion
  • gross margin between 38 percent and 38.5 percent
  • operating expenses between $7.65 billion and $7.75 billion
  • other income/(expense) of $600 million
  • tax rate of 25.5 percent

What to expect in 2018?

Apple is in the middle of valuable beginning. It isn’t an exact science from this to calculate how many iPhones Apple could sell in the December quarter or in 2018 since there are at least the following variables:

  • The iPhone X was launched over a month later than the other iPhones
  • The current install base is higher
  • There are more first day countries launched for the iPhone 8 and X
  • The 8 and especially the X have higher prices

Still, stocks can be volatile, and the optimism surrounding the iPhone X and iPhone 8 could turn to disappointment if sales of the new offerings fail to live up to expectations. But Apple is by far the closest, currently commanding a market value about $175 billion above the world’s second largest public company, Google parent Alphabet.

Apple Has Something To Confess About iPhone X Screens

Burn-in and color shift issues that have been a victim of Google’s customers across the globe around the world can also be experienced on iPhone X, according to Apple’s reports.

In 2017 the world started to use OLED display. However, technology giants may have made research and development activities quite fast to put these screens into our pocket and serialize their devices. OLEDs, a new technology yet, are a potential problem when compared to other displays in long-term use. Those who live in Google’s Pixel 2 XL are the clearest proof of this.

What is the screen issue on OLEDs?

Burns on OLED screens occur when something reflected in the image leaves stains on certain areas, even if you leave the screen. For example, when you exit the messaging application and come to the main page, you can see that the texts in the messages leave some stains.

Apple seems to have taken lessons from Google’s problems and wants to soften any possible complaints about the OLED screen with “Super Retina” technology. We think it would be better if we keep moving this part from Apple’s mouth:

“With extended long-term use, OLED displays can also show slight visual changes. This is also expected behaviour and can include ‘image persistence’ or ‘burn-in’, where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen. This can occur in more extreme cases such as when the same high contrast image is continuously displayed for prolonged periods of time. We’ve engineered the Super Retina display to be the best in the industry in reducing the effects of OLED ‘burn-in’.”

Of course, these problems are not something the producers are expecting, but OLED screens, on the other hand, mean they are not ready for serial production. Although Apple is making this statement to anticipate potential impacts, it is natural for users to worry.

Apple Pricing and Discounts In Different Countries: Where To Go for A Cheap Apple

Apple is one of the love brands that are widely preferred around the world. The brand announced new products recently, among which iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X have already took their place among the most popular smart phones despite their really high prices. On the other hand, the fact that the prices and discounts are similar in every country. So, which countries are more advantageous in terms of prices of Apple?

The cheapest iPhone X on Apple stores costs 999 USD in USA while the cheapest iPhone 8 is 699 and iPhone 8 Plus 799 USD.

Heading to USA for a cheaper Apple

The prices quoted for US customers are exclusive of sales taxes, which vary state-by-state, while the UK prices include VAT. So it is a worldwide trend to buy Apple products during a travel to USA (even traveling to USA just to purchase an Apple); however, this gets less appealing as you have to pay VAT when you turn back to your own country. Especially in Europe, products such as iPhone X are so expensive that  it’s led thousands to eye-up transatlantic flights to see if it’s cheaper to fly across the pond to buy it. And it is, even with the cost of the flight, but there’s a catch: you would become an international electronics smuggler in doing so.

On the other hand, a flight ticket, the price for an iPhone and VAT in your country and accommodation costs may be very same with the price of an iPhone in your own country. The same amount of money may cover the expenses of a travel in a far country, which is not totally a bad idea. So just choose your own way!

Hey Apple! Tell Us More About Mac mini, please

Mac mini, Apple’s most affordable and compact desktop solution, was last renewed on October 16, 2014. The device has not seen any updates since then.

Designed with the “move along” concept without a keyboard, mouse, and monitor, the Mac mini is a great solution for those who want to take their computer from home to work, from home to work, thanks to its small size. Equipped with Haswell processors, the Mac minis with the Intel HD 5000 / Intel Iris graphics chip had many curious Mac owners at affordable prices.

Apple has not been able to renew the Mac mini since 2014, disappointing many users. Mac mini has been updated in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 respectively. Apple had never had a break for 3 years before it was renewing the product. The number of Apple customers waiting for a new Mac mini is unimportant.

As for the subject, Apple Marketing Chief Phil Schiller said the company does not have a plan to turn its back on Mac mini when it considers the Mac mini to be “an important product” for the company. Nevertheless, he was reluctant to provide history and information for a potential renewal planned for the future.

Tim Cook: Mac mini won’t die

Tim Cook also have given some information about the future of Mac mini. According to this information, Mac mini with a practical size will not get lost in the dusty pages of history. Despite the fact that it is not being talked as much as other devices Tim Cook considers this computer is very important for the future of the company. Stating that they love small sized device, they will increase the amount of interest on this computer.

As a matter of fact, the rest of Apple’s mini Mac family is built on Intel Haswell processors, to be remembered. The graphics cards are Intel HD 5000 / Iris Graphic computers, starting at $ 2,300. The device, which opens up the affordable Mac experience with the monitor or television on hand, can make a difference when it is updated. Support for up-to-date imaging technologies can bring the smallest one of family back to the agenda, which is quite good for users.

Reasons To Buy an iPhone 6S Instead Of iPhone 8 or iPhone X

iPhone 6S is one of the mobile phones the longest lived especially among Apple’s products. Apple usually offers only the previous model iPhone when it announces a new model; however, in this case something seems to change. From 6S to iPhone 8 and iPhone X, all models are now available on Apple’s official website. But, now comes up a question: Which model to buy? This time we will be more on side of iPhone 6S.

Here’s why you should consider buying the iPhone 6S instead of the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.

The price of iPhone 6S

It should go without saying that Apple’s older iPhones are going to be cheaper than its new ones.

Here’s what the new iPhones cost:

iPhone 8 with 64 GB of storage: $700.

iPhone 8 Plus with 64 GB of storage: $800.

iPhone X with 64 GB of storage: $1,000.

However, Apple is still selling the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus for significantly less than the new iPhones:

iPhone 6S with 32 GB of storage: $450.

iPhone 6S Plus with 32 GB of storage: $550.

Excellent Design

iPhone 6S has an excellent design – and you’ll find comfort in knowing that the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus look nearly identical to the new iPhone 8 models. Both the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 8 have the same size of bezels around the display and same overall shape, and their screens are the same size and same resolution.

Apple added improvements to the iPhone 8’s and iPhone X’s screens, including TrueTone, which adjusts the overall color temperature to match the lighting in your surrounding, and a wide color gamut for richer colors.

At the same time, the screen on the iPhone 6S is still excellent. The screen on that phone has the same sharpness and resolution as the new iPhone 8, and it reproduces colors just fine for browsing the web, using apps, watching videos, looking at photos, and playing games.
