An improved version of Apple's iPhone 6 that made its debut in October 2015. The iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus add a variety of new features while retaining the same display and overall size as the iPhone 6 (4.7-inch display with 1334x750 resolution) and the iPhone 6 Plus (5.5-inch screen with 1920x1080 resolution).

The iPhone 6S also adds iOS 9 as its mobile operating system, an improved 12-megapixel iSight camera with support for taking 4K video, and Wi-Fi and LTE performance enhancements. Pricing for the iPhone 6S remains unchanged from the iPhone 6.
