Last year the iPhone 6 was a monster hit and swept all before it to breaking just about every smartphone sales record there is. Surely the only way was down for Apple and the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus? Not quite as Apple has just officially revealed that it shipped a whopping 13 million units of the new iPhone 6s range over the first three days of release.
The pink (ahem, we mean rose gold) iPhone 6s is proving to be something of a hit among consumers with the device making up the majority of pre-order units. Much like the gold iPhone 5s launched two years ago, many people thought the color option simply wouldn't look good or appeal to consumers. However, Apple proved us all wrong twice is seems.
With carriers starting to decrease subsidized contracts it is easy to see how Apple could be one of the companies most affected by the change. With consumers having to pay full prices for smartphones, they are more likely to look for affordable device or those that offer bang for your buck. Apple's expensive iPhones may be out of the reach of many people, but Cupertino has a plan to solve that potential problem.
If you blinked during Apple's iPhone/iPad/Apple TV announcement yesterday you would have likely missed the launch of a new iPad Min... the iPad Mini 4. Wait, you may be thinking that there was not iPad Mini 4 announcement at all, but trust us there is a new model of Apple's small slate and it was briefly shown in the new iPad price list.
How do you keep what is an incremental update fresh and exciting, something consumers want to buy? It is a problem Apple has tackled in recent years with its iPhone s devices and 2015's iPhone 6s is certainly no different as like its predecessors it does not chance anything in terms of aesthetics.
What is Apple's flagship device, is it?s the iPhone 6s or the iPhone 6s Plus? Both were launched today by the largest tech company in the world and the answer to the question is that both handsets are flagships. The iPhone 6s is the company's sales driver, the smartphone that most people will buy, but the iPhone 6s Plus is the larger and more potently spec'd of the two.
Apple monster fall event saw the company unveil its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, two smartphones that are almost certainly going to dominate the Holiday Season.
Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus during September in 2014 and the company has been widely tipped to do the same with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus this year. That potential September announcement has now become much more likely as a French carrier as reportedly leaked that pre-orders will start on September 11th and the device will start shipping on the 18th.
It seems that Apple is going to up the screen size of the iPhone once again, with sources inside Foxconn suggesting a 5-inch model is being developed. Foxconn is Apple's chief manufacturer, so the company knows more about the behind the scenes development of iOS products than most, although there is no outright proof that the insider is telling the truth in this case.
We wrote last week that the iPhone 6c, Apple's upcoming new "affordable" iPhone, is going to roll out during the second quarter of 2016. That information came from a report in Taiwan, and we questioned it as Apple sticks to fall launches, meaning Cupertino would announce the handset next month. Noted leak professional @Evleaks now backs up that view by saying that the iPhone 6c will be launched in September alongside the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
