Smart iPhone 6S Postpaid Plans and Value Added Services, Announced! Will Be Available Starting on November 6, 2015

Great news for those who've long been waiting for the handset to land here! Apple iPhone 6S - the Cupertino company's 2015 flagship smartphone - will officially be available via Smart Postpaid starting on November 6, 2015!

Smart iPhone 6S

“With the iPhone 6s [...], Apple has once again pushed the boundaries of mobile innovation, allowing us to achieve so much more with our phones and experience the Smart Life with entertainment, convenience and peace of mind on the go,” shared Ms. Kathy Carag, Smart Postpaid Head.

"iPhone’s Live Photos lets us capture and share our best moments in a revolutionary way, while its advanced hardware allows us to fulfill all our passions and swoop smoothly from one app to the next – without worrying about efficiency or battery life. For sure, with these new iPhones, we can get more of the Smart Life experience and enjoy the widest breadth of mobile content that only Smart’s nationwidest network can deliver – from your choice of apps, games, music, movies and more – all at your fingertips."

Smart iPhone 6S

Running the latest version of iOS mobile platform and available in a number of colors, namely, Rose Gold, Gold, Space Gray, and Silver, the Apple iPhone 6S - which looks exactly like its predecessor - has the following key new features:

New Touchscreen with Pressure Sensitivity

Apple's new Force Touch technology that incorporates pressure sensitivity on touchscreens has made its way to the Apple Watch and the TouchPad of the new Macbook. This year, Apple brings this unique innovation to its smartphone line via 3D Touch.

The scratch-resistant touchscreen of the iPhone 6S detects subtle changes in pressure and now allows the user to input "half" or "full" clicks. This enables new gestures like the all-new 'Peek and Pop', letting you perform actions without having to fully open an application or to jump to another page or section in the interface.

12 MegaPixel iSight Camera

The Apple iPhone 6S is equipped with a 12 MegaPixel iSight camera with 1.22µ pixels, enhanced local tone mapping, and noise reduction. This represents a clear upgrade from the 8 MegaPixel shooter on the iPhone 6. As such, you will be able to snap not just bigger but also more brilliant and crisp photos using the 2015 release.

Additionally, the new iSight camera on both phones is capable of shooting live photos - ala GIFs - that animate when you 3D Touch them, videos with 4K resolution, and slow-mo Full HD 1080p 120 frames-per-second clips.

5MP Selfie Cam with Software-Based Front Flash

Apple iPhone 6S' revamped camera application incorporates virtual flash or illumination for selfies in lieu of an actual LED bulb in front. Apple calls this 'Retina Flash' and it's more or less similar to the software-based 'front flash' of the LG G3 and G4, Huawei Ascend P7 and P8, as well as of Lenovo Vibe Shot.

How does it work, exactly? Retina Flash momentarily makes the display three times brighter with True Tone lighting as you snap a selfie using the enhanced 5 MegaPixel FaceTime camera, for wonderfully bright and clear self-portraits even in low light.

Improved Internal Hardware

Whereas the 2014 iPhone 6 runs on the 64-bit Apple A8 processor, this year's model feature the faster and more energy-efficient Apple A9 chipset. This powerhouse CPU is complemented by 2 GB of RAM for improved multitasking, which is a welcome boost given that some flagship Android smartphones from last year already have 3 GB of RAM.

Apple A9 is 70% faster in graphics tasks and 90% faster in CPU tasks compared to the Apple A8 from last year. This makes the two 2015 models far superior in gaming and overall touch performance than their predecessors.

M9, Apple’s next-generation motion co-processor is also embedded into A9 and it allows certain iOS features and background apps to run all the time without consuming too much power.

Second Generation Fingerprint Sensor

The New Touch ID on this year's iPhone reads your fingerprint more accurately and faster than ever before -- so you can unlock your phone and make app purchases seamlessly, without annoying lags.

Hey, Siri!

The iPhone 6S comes with an updated version of Apple's virtual mobile assistant, Siri, incorporated in iOS 9. One key new feature is 'Hey Siri' that lets the user access the service and make commands from anywhere on the phone's interface. It works a lot like Android's 'OK Google'; In fact, it is - obviously, clearly - Apple's answer to that.

More Durable Construction

One of the main criticisms thrown at the Apple iPhone 6 just a few days following their launch last year was that you can actually bend them using your bare hands. This led to the Bendgate Scandal of 2014. This year, Apple used 'stronger' materials - specifically 7000-series Aluminum and ion-exchange-processed glass - in crafting the enclosure of both iPhone 6S and 6S Plus to ensure a far more sturdy build.
