A breakthrough design.
Pushed even further.
Innovation isn’t always obvious to the eye, but look a little closer at iPhone 6s and you’ll find it’s been fundamentally improved. The enclosure is made from a new alloy of 7000 Series aluminum — the same grade used in the aerospace industry. The cover glass is the strongest, most durable glass used in any smartphone. And a new rose gold finish joins space gray, silver, and gold.
Advanced security. Right at your fingertip.
Using a highly advanced fingerprint sensor that’s now faster and better than ever, Touch ID makes unlocking your phone easy and secure. And it lets you use Apple Pay at over a million stores and within participating apps.
iPhone 6s features LTE Advanced with speeds up to twice as fast as the previous generation.* It supports more LTE bands than any other smartphone. And when you’re connected to Wi-Fi, iPhone 6s lets you do things like browse the web and download apps at speeds up to twice as fast, too.
An experience unlike any other. On a phone unlike any other.
iOS 9 is the most advanced, intelligent, and secure mobile operating system in the world. Powerful new built-in apps, advanced features in Siri, and enhancements throughout the system make it smarter and more essential than ever. Deep integration with Apple hardware makes everything work together beautifully. And the App Store is full of incredible apps that have been tailored to take advantage of what iPhone is capable of.
The next generation of Multi‑Touch.
iPhone 6s introduces an entirely new way to interact with your phone. For the ﬁrst time, iPhone senses how much pressure you apply to the display. In addition to familiar Multi‑Touch gestures like Tap, Swipe, and Pinch, 3D Touch introduces Peek and Pop. This brings a new dimension of functionality to the iPhone experience. And when you use 3D Touch, your iPhone responds with subtle taps. So not only will you see what a press can do — you’ll feel it.
Introducing Peek and Pop.
Peek and Pop let you preview all kinds of content and even act on it — without having to actually open it. For example, with a light press you can Peek at each email in your inbox. Then when you want to open one, press a little deeper to Pop into it.
Peek at your emails before you open them.
3D Touch helps you get through the email in your inbox more quickly and efficiently. To Peek at a message, just press it lightly.
The content of the email appears on top of your inbox. If it’s a short message and a Peek is all you need, simply stop pressing and you’re back in your inbox.
If you want more than a Peek, press a little more deeply to Pop into the message for a full view — just as if you’d tapped to open it from your inbox.
Get a look at a website.
Before you actually go there.
If someone sends you a link to a website, you can Peek at it without leaving the screen you’re on.
Press the link lightly and the top of the page appears just as it would in Safari. Stop pressing and you’re back in your message.
If you want to open the full page in Safari, press the link a little more deeply to Pop into it.
View the photos you’ve taken while you’re still taking new ones.
If you’re taking photos and want to see the shots you’ve already taken, you can get a Peek simply by pressing lightly on the thumbnail image.
The thumbnail image appears along with a scrubber to help you navigate the photos you’ve taken. Just continue pressing and swipe left to review your photos. Let go to continue taking photos.
If you decide you want to open a photo, just press a little deeper to Pop into it. From there you can share, edit, favorite, or delete.
Get a Peek at a location just by pressing an address.
If someone sends you an address, you can Peek at it on a map without leaving the screen you’re on.
Press lightly on the link and the location will appear on top of the screen. Stop pressing and you’ll return to the screen where you found the address.
If you decide to explore the area in more detail, press a little more deeply to Pop into a full map.
A shortcut to the things you do the most.
Quick Actions let you do the things you do most often faster and in fewer steps. You can start a message to your favorite contacts. Or instantly bring up the camera to snap a selfie. Or immediately get directions home. Many of these actions can even be done with a single press, right from the Home screen.
Many Quick Actions work right from the Home screen and require only a single press. For example, just press the Phone icon to quickly call one of your favorite contacts.
See what you can do with Quick Actions.

More ways to interact in more places.
3D Touch works throughout iOS 9 to make the things you do every day more natural and intuitive. There are so many ways that simply pressing deeper can make whatever you’re doing a better experience.
One press turns your keyboard into a trackpad.
Press the keyboard within apps such as Notes, Mail, and Messages, and your keyboard behaves just like a trackpad. You can then use a cursor to easily select and manipulate text with precision.

Take a peek at 3D Touch.
Introducing Live Photos. Bring memories to life with a single touch.
A whole new way to look at photography, Live Photos go beyond snapshots to capture moments with motion and sound. Press a Live Photo to make it come alive. Experience the crack of a smile. The crash of a wave. Or the wag of a tail.
With Live Photos, your favorite moments are now even closer at hand. Set a Live Photo as your Lock screen wallpaper, and press to watch it come alive. You can choose any of your Live Photos or select from the Dynamic Wallpapers that come with iOS 9.
A whole new dimension of technology.
Using 3D Touch is simple. But the engineering behind it is incredibly advanced. When you press the display, capacitive sensors instantly measure microscopic changes in the distance between the cover glass and the backlight. iOS uses these measurements to provide fast, accurate, and continuous response to ﬁnger pressure, which could only happen with deep integration between software and hardware. iPhone 6s also provides you with responsive feedback in the form of subtle taps, letting you know that it’s sensing the pressure you’re applying.
Apps will never feel the same again.
3D Touch will let you do more than ever with iOS 9. But it will also deepen the experience of your favorite apps and games from the App Store. Developers will be able to add 3D Touch–enabled actions to their apps, such as pressure‑sensitive drawing, Peek and Pop, Quick Actions, and much more.
