I was in an Apple Store the other day and one of the girls (Megan) working in the store noticed my screen was cracked. I explained that it happened a while ago and one day I would get the extra time and money to replace it… Before I could finish she pulled up on her screen an available time and said, when can I make you an appointment, it would be free. I have had this crack in my screen for over a year and have had other cell phones that I paid hundreds of dollars to replace so I could not understand why this would be free. I learned that if your iPhone has a single crack not a spider web crack that more than likely it is a manufacture defect and will be replaced at no extra charge to you. Total time when I returned for my appointment was fourth five minutes. Now I’m back to having a great Apple iPhone 6 Plus with a crack-free screen, thank you, Apple.
iPhone 6S What changed? Everything
“3D Touch” a display that uses pressure sensitive technology that makes this phone do new things in a new style. While I was taking a look at both the 6S and the 6S Plus I noticed they are the same size as 6 so my case from my 6 will fit on my 6S.
Rose Gold, looks like it will be the one to buy, especially if you want everyone to know you have the 6S.
No more bendgate, the material used is a aerospace grade aluminum and it looks like a thicker glass. The inside looks like it is built with the same aerospace grade aluminum.
Shortcuts is another new idea on this phone, apple calls it peeking in, you access most resent actions a lot faster. Press and hold on an app and it will pull up a drop down menu with options, you can also customize the dropdown menus.
Camera has a new front and back camera for photos and videos. A better autofocus and a 12 megapixel camera which is a lot more than the last phone that only has an 8 megapixel camera. Do yourself a favor and get the most storage space possible these photos and videos take up a lot of space.
The 3D Touch, A9 processor, Third generation 64 bit chip, 4G LTE, iOS 9 and the new improved camera makes the upgrade well worth the wait, order online or visit your local Apple Store.
