For the sixth year in a row Apple released their new version of the iPhone on Sept. 9. The new iPhone climbed to the top trending story on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook as teenagers and technology fanatics rushed to catch a glimpse of the phone.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus offer customers a never before seen color called rose gold while still providing the classic gold and silver.
“The color is what first spiked my interest because I’d never seen a rose gold phone, but I also really liked a lot of the new features,” Cathy Choi, senior, said.
Apple amped up their picture quality with a 12 megapixel camera, 5 megapixel front-facing camera, and 4K video capability. It also offers iPhone users “live photos,” a new feature which mainly gives the operator a chance to look back on the pictures taken with additional pictures taken moments before and after pressing “capture.”
“I’m excited that the next iPhone will include a better camera, and I love that the phone will know more things about me, not just my fingerprint,” Taleah Ulrich, senior, said.
Along with the new phones, Apple announced their new software update: the IOS 9. This update enhances security, upgrades the artificial intelligence unit known as “Siri,” and provides the user with new built-in apps. While the IOS 9 beta is already out and running, the update will not be available to the public until Sept. 16.
Pre-order for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will open Sept. 12.
