If you haven’t heard, Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are finally here, but should you upgrade? Well today we’re comparing the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus to the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus…
Design and hardware
Starting out with design, it’ll be hard to tell the difference between any of these phones. Being an “S” cycle, Apple has left last year’s design alone and added just a simple mark on the backside to signify the upgraded model. If you really want people to know you have the new iPhone, your best bet is to pickup the new Rose Gold color variation which is only available on the 6s models this year. If you want to take it a step further, there are plenty of iPhone 6s cases available now or you can pick up a skin to keep things sleek and thing.
In the hand, you may notice something different with the 6s and 6s Plus… These new models are actually slightly thicker and heavier than the previous models due to the new display technology and build, which we’ll get into later. The button layout is identical here as well and along the bottom end, you’ll find the same ports and all in their place.
Check out our full iPhone 6s vs iPhone 6 comparison video below:
Watch our iPhone 6s and 6s Plus unboxing and impressions video.
Though the technology behind the display has changed, Apple has decided to leave the resolution alone. On the iPhone 6 and 6s, we have a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1334-by-750 at 326 ppi. Over on the 6 Plus and 6s Plus we have a 5.5-inch display with a 1920-by-1080 resolution at 401 ppi. Based on the design and screen size/resolution, there’s hardly a difference here, but let’s dig a little deeper.
Apple’s “S” models are all about refinement and there’s been quite a bit going on in this department. First off, Touch ID has been drastically improved. The setup process identical between the two, but it’s twice as fast this year and the difference is definitely noticeable.
Specifications and performance
As for specifications, Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are rocking a dual-core 1.8GHz A9 processor with 2GB of RAM, while last year’s models packed a dual-core 1.4GHz A8 processor and 1GB of RAM. While that may sound like another incremental update over their predecessors, the 6s and 6s Plus definitely pack some hot fire. Looking at Geekbench 3, the difference is very clear. Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus take the crown, but what’s even better than that is the RAM management happening here with the new hardware and iOS 9. Apps that seemed to have been opened forever ago, launch like a boss.
As for performance, both will still get the job done, but the 6s and 6s Plus will still take the win in the long run. Both devices are running iOS 9 and come along with the same feature set introduced with that update as well. If you’re not familiar with the features that iOS 9 brings, check out our complete rundown here. Don’t get me wrong though, if you’re sticking with the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus you’ll be fine, but I’m definitely a big fan of the performance improvements with the newer models. It’s without a doubt a night and day difference in real-world use.
Aside from performance and specifications, there are some details which reside in the form of hardware enabled software features. One of the big ones here is the new 3D Touch display. This year Apple has introduced a new 3D Touch feature which will detect the amount of pressure applied to the screen with your finger and trigger various actions. For example, if I 3D Touch on certain app icons, a little pop-up menu will appear which I can then slide my finger on to the appropriate action and release.
If you’d like to see a full video covering all of the best 3D Touch features, check out our detailed video below:
It’s actually a pretty neat feature, but right now the support is limited. You can 3D Touch on a lot of the app icons native to iOS such as the camera app or Notes app, but very few third-party apps support this out of the box. It’s going to be a game changing feature for sure, but not until it’s widely adopted by developers.
On to camera performance, there’s a big difference on paper, but is it noticeable? Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus feature a new 12-megapixel sensor, which is up from 8 mega-pixel in the 6 and 6 Plus. Unfortunately, the 6s didn’t receive the optical image stabilization treatment, but the 6s Plus is still holding it down strong in that area. The optical image stabilization will definitely help in low-light, but cameras on all of these models will still take fantastic photos.
Comparing photo samples, to the naked eye there’s not much of a difference here. In fact, I’d argue that just looking at photos on the screen, you’d need a tuned eye to notice the upgrade in mega-pixels. When zoomed in, there’s definitely a difference in detail, but you may not be able to see much of an upgrade if your only goal is to share photos online. Regardless, photos on each device are very crispy and look fantastic, but check full gallery below so you can take a look for yourself. Can you see the difference?

As for video, there’s a big leap in resolution here. Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are capable of shooting up to 4K video at 30 frames per second, which is 4X the video recording resolution found on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. And even though the iPhone 6s lacks optical image stabilization, Apple has included digital stabilization to keep things buttery smooth. There’s obviously no competition or comparison necessary in video quality here, but since majority of consumers don’t have a way to even view 4K video, it may not be important enough to take advantage of. In that case, 4K video recording can easily be disabled and downgraded to 1080p within the Settings app to save you some space.
There’s also an improvement in Slo-Mo video this year. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are capable of shooting up to 120 frames per second at 1080p and 240 frames per second at 720p, while the previous generation models are capped out at just 240 frames per second at 720p.
Another new feature with the camera on both the 6s and 6s Plus, is the addition of Live Photos. This feature is enabled by default in the camera app and will automatically capture a second and a half before and after you take a picture and stitch that together in video form with audio. Once a Live Photo is captured, it can easily be viewed by 3D Touching on the original photo which will proceed to animate the photo. They can also be set as wallpapers, but to be honest I don’t find them very useful.
Around the front side of both new devices you’ll also find an improved 5-megapixel camera with 720p video recording capabilities, which is up from 1.2-megapixels of the previous generations. Not only that, but there’s a new selfie flash on the 6s and 6s Plus… but probably not the kind of flash you’re thinking of. Apple’s new Retina Flash, does have a rather stupid name, but the functionality is pretty cool. There’s a special display chip inside that helps detect the ambient light around you, then match the tone with a flash of the display that’s three times brighter than usual. What do you think, gimmick or handy feature?
Should you upgrade?
As you can tell, most of what comes along with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are simply refinements on last year’s lineup. It’s likely you’ll be able to live with the previous generation model, but some of the new features introduces may prove to be game changers down the road. I’m a huge fan of 3D Touch and the improved camera, but both of those combined might not be good enough of a reason to go out an upgrade. If you can live without those two little features, you will likely benefit from waiting until the iPhone 7 is released.Let us know what you think about the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus in the comments section below. Do you think it’s worth the upgrade?
What are all the differences between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus models? Which should I buy?
Please note that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were discontinued on September 7, 2016. However, Apple has quietly re-introduced a 32 GB variant of the iPhone 6 -- but not the iPhone 6 Plus -- for AT&T's pre-paid GoPhone and Boost Mobile in the US as well as in China, Taiwan, India, and a variety of other international markets. This Q&A has been updated with the latest and can be quite helpful for anyone considering one of these models new or used.
EveryMac.com also compares the newer iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models.
With even a casual glance at an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus side-by-side, it is obvious that the iPhone 6 Plus is larger and has a correspondingly larger display.
Of course, these casual observations are correct, but there also are a number of other important differences that are not so obvious.
Additionally, it is worth noting that there actually are eight distinct iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models (four of each) and EveryiPhone.com has meticulously documented each one as always. This Q&A primarily details collective differences for simplicity's sake.

External Differences & Similarities
Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus use thin aluminum case designs with the front dominated by the display.
The displays are different, but they vary by more than the physical dimensions -- 4.7" (1334x750) for the iPhone 6 and 5.5" (1920x1080) for the iPhone 6 Plus. Both screens are multitouch capable, have IPS technology, are LED-backlit and have a 500 cd/m2 typical maximum brightness as well as "dual-domain pixels" for a wider viewing angle.
However, the iPhone 6 has a superior 1400:1 contrast ratio compared to 1300:1 for the iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 Plus, on the other hand, has a higher pixel density, 401 ppi compared to 326 ppi for the iPhone 6. In practice, these differences are minor -- and only those with extremely sharp vision will be able to differentiate the higher pixel density of the iPhone 6 Plus -- but it is worth noting that the iPhone 6 Plus display is true "HD" (1920x1080), whereas the iPhone 6 display is not despite Apple's identical "Retina HD" branding for the display in both models.

Each device is available in three color options -- silver, which has a white glass front and a silver colored aluminum back; gold, which has a white glass front and a gold colored aluminum back; and "space" gray, which has a black glass front and a gray aluminum back.
Apple initially discontinued the gold option on September 9, 2015, but continued to sell the silver and gray options until September 7, 2016. In February and March 2017, Apple re-introduced a 32 GB variant in gold in China and Taiwan and in Space Gray in the US, India, Europe, and other markets.
Android fans might also note that the back looks a bit similar to models in the previously released, and generally well regarded, HTC One line, as well. The overall industrial design of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is similar to Apple's earlier iPod touch 5th Gen, with gently rounded sides, but the iPod touch has an entirely flat display whereas the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have glass displays that themselves curve toward the also rounded sides for a "completely smooth and continuous surface."

Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus additionally have an embedded "Touch ID" fingerprint sensor in the home button that allows for biometric identification rather than a mere passcode, a bottom mounted headphone jack, microphone, Lighting connector, and a single built-in speaker as well as an on/off switch on the righthand side.
When these models first were released, the blogosphere was quite obsessed with the potential "bendability" of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The respected Consumer Reports scientifically determined that it requires a significant 70 pounds of pressure to bend the iPhone 6 and 90 pounds of pressure to bend the iPhone 6 Plus when the pressure is placed horizontally across the middle of each device.
It might be a bit surprising that the iPhone 6 Plus is stronger than the iPhone 6, given its larger surface area. However, the iPhone 6 Plus is slightly thicker -- 7.1 mm rather than 6.9 mm -- and this extra thickness no doubt provides a bit of extra strength, again, at least when the pressure is placed horizontally across the middle of each device.
Based on hands-on evaluation, EveryiPhone.com also has found that the thinness, rounded edges, and the fairly slick finish combine to make the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus rather easy to drop, too. For those with smaller hands, the iPhone 6 Plus, in particular, is quite easy to drop when trying to reach across the display with one's thumb while simultaneously holding the device in the same hand. Consequently, a case is highly recommended to reduce the risk of damaging either device.
Of course, if you are concerned about accidentally bending the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus -- whether due to potential structural weakness or rough handling, either one -- a sturdy case would provide overall protection, too. Regardless, do not sit on your iPhone!
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both have an identical FaceTime HD camera on the front of the device, but the rear iSight cameras have one important difference.
Both front-facing FaceTime HD cameras have a 1.2 megapixel sensor (1280x960), an f/2.2 aperture, and are capable of recording 720p video.
The rear-mounted iSight camera on both devices has an 8 megapixel sensor with 1.5µm pixels, an f/2.2 aperture, and is capable of recording 1080p video at 30 fps or 60 fps (as well as 240 fps for slo-mo). They also have a new sensor "featuring Focus Pixels for faster autofocus" and continuous autofocus and cinematic video stabilization.
Both also have a five-element lens and a dual LED "True Tone" flash, but the iPhone 6 Plus adds optical image stabilization, which uses the gyroscope to accommodate for shaky hands. Consequently, the iPhone 6 Plus camera provides slightly less "wiggly" video and much better low light photos compared to the standard iPhone 6.
For those interested in minor details, the rear camera in both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus protrudes slightly from the housing just as it does on the previously released iPod touch 5th Gen. Although some armchair commentators have gone as far as referring to this protrusion as "appalling" and others even have speculated as to why Apple apparently attempted to hide the camera bump altogether in some product photos, this is unlikely to be an issue for all but the most fastidious.

However, it is worth noting that the camera "bump" means that the device will not sit entirely flat when placed on a table top if it is not held in a protective case.
It is easy to differentiate between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus when the two devices are side-by-side.
However, for those who may not be able to readily estimate the size of a 4.7" or 5.5" display or who are not familiar with the dimensions of each device altogether, even collective visual identification can be difficult.
Many of the devices can be identified by Model Number, which is listed on the back of each iPhone in tiny type, but unfortunately not all can be individually identified in this way, either.
Nevertheless, the model numbers for each iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are:
As is clear from the above, model numbers A1549 and A1522 (in italics), for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, respectively, do not correspond to a single device. For the purpose of this Q&A, it is adequate to merely note that A1549 refers to an iPhone 6 and A1522 refers to an iPhone 6 Plus.
However, if you need to uniquely identify one of these iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus models, they also can be pinpointed by other identifiers.
Specifically, EveryiPhone.com's Ultimate iLookup feature -- as well as the EveryMac app for iOS 5 or later, Android, and Kindle Fire -- can precisely identify these iPhone models by Order Number (referred to as "Model" within the iOS "Settings" app under General > About), and their Serial Numbers, as well.
Battery Life Differences
With a physically larger display and corresponding housing, Apple took full advantage of the additional space in the iPhone 6 Plus and packed it with a higher capacity battery than the iPhone 6. In the site's customary teardown, iFixit discovered that the iPhone 6 has a 1810 mAh, 6.91 watt-hour battery whereas the iPhone 6 Plus has a 2915 mAh, 11.1 watt-hour battery.
As one would expect given the roughly 60% higher watt-hour rating, the iPhone 6 Plus provides significantly better battery life than the iPhone 6:
|iPhone 6||iPhone 6 Plus|
|Talk Time (3G)||14 Hours||24 Hours|
|Internet Use (3G)||10 Hours||12 Hours|
|Internet Use (4G/LTE)||10 Hours||12 Hours|
|Internet Use (Wi-Fi)||11 Hours||12 Hours|
|HD Video Playback||11 Hours||14 Hours|
|Audio Playback||50 Hours||80 Hours|
The iPhone 6 Plus provides more standby time as well -- 16 days (384 hours) -- compared to just 10 days (250 hours) for its smaller contemporary.
Wireless Connectivity & Data Differences
All iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models support 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, and specifically 802.11ac with speeds up to 433 Mbps, as well as Bluetooth 4.0 and GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz).
Other connectivity varies accordingly:
|TD-SCDMA||LTE Bands |
|6 (GSM/North America)||A1549||850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||Unofficial||None||1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29|
|6 (CDMA/Verizon)||A1549||850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||800, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||None||1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29|
|6 (Global/Sprint)||A1586||850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||800, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||1900 (F), 2000 (A)||FDD-LTE (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29); TD-LTE (38, 39, 40, 41)|
|6 (China Mobile)||A1589||850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||None||1900 (F), 2000 (A)||FDD-LTE (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29); TD-LTE (38, 39, 40, 41)|
|6 Plus (GSM/North America)||A1522||850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||Unofficial||None||1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29|
|6 Plus (CDMA/Verizon)||A1522||850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||800, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||None||1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29|
|6 Plus (Global/Sprint)||A1524||850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||800, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||1900 (F), 2000 (A)||FDD-LTE (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29); TD-LTE (38, 39, 40, 41)|
|6 Plus (China Mobile)||A1593||850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz||None||1900 (F), 2000 (A)||FDD-LTE (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29); TD-LTE (38, 39, 40, 41)|
Note that the China Mobile iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models support the WCDMA flavor of UMTS on the same frequencies as the other models as well as the same selection of FDD-LTE and TD-LTE bands as the "global" devices, but UMTS and FDD-LTE formally are "only for international roaming" rather than for use within mainland China. No doubt clever hackers will figure out workarounds for mainland use, too.
If you have additional info about connectivity hacks for the China Mobile models, please share.
Internal Differences & Similarities
From a specific parts standpoint, there are many internal differences between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. As noted above, the displays, cameras, and batteries each are different, as are a variety of other internal components.
However, these devices also have a great deal in common internally. Both are powered by a dual core 1.4 GHz Apple A8 processor, have an M8 motion coprocessor that "continuously measures data from the [six-axis] accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, and a new barometer," and have 1 GB of RAM.
In a more detailed technical evaluation, Chipworks found that the Apple A8 formally is a 20 nm TSCM manufactured processor dubbed APL1011. Additional analysis from AnandTech determined that the graphics processor is a four core PowerVR GX6450.
Both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus originally were available with 16 GB, 64 GB, or 128 GB of storage, but the 128 GB options were discontinued on September 9, 2015. In February and March 2017, Apple re-introduced 32 GB variants of the iPhone 6, but not the iPhone 6 Plus.
Also note that the entry-level configurations have 16 GB of storage whereas the original mid-level offering is 64 GB. The exact pricing varied by market, but in the US, the mid-level configuration originally provided 300% more storage for 50% more money.
Both devices also have an NFC (Near Field Communication) chip to allow digital payments in conjunction with "Apple Pay" software, too.
iOS Support Similarities
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both originally shipped pre-installed with iOS 8 and subsequently shipped with iOS 9. Both lines provide full support for the operating system including Apple Pay. They are supported by iOS 10 and iOS 11, too.

So, should I buy an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? Which is best for me?
For those not on a tight budget, the newer iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, or newer models are a better choice than either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. The newer devices have a case that is stronger and less likely to bend, stronger displays with more advanced 3D touch capability, faster performance, better cameras, more advanced connectivity and more.
However, for those on a budget, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus remain well worth consideration. Keep in mind, though, in some countries, like the United States -- where the iPhone typically is sold subsidized by a carrier and tied to an expensive two-year contract -- the upfront price represents a small portion of the overall cost over a two-year period. If the upfront price of an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus is a burden to your budget, EveryiPhone.com would recommend carefully evaluating the monthly service cost to make sure that the ongoing expense is not a burden either.
For someone considering only the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, rather than newer models, the size difference alone is enough to decide between them for most users.
The iPhone 6 is noticeably larger than all earlier iPhone models, but still works well for one-handed use for most people. The iPhone 6 Plus, by contrast, really is too large for many people to use easily with one hand and may be too large to fit comfortably, if at all, in the pockets in many pairs of pants.
Of course, if you place more importance on a large display for reading text, watching video, or gaming; tend to prefer to carry your mobile in a bag or purse rather than in your pockets; and you are willing to use your mobile in landscape (horizontal) mode with two hands much of the time, perhaps you would prefer the larger iPhone 6 Plus.
Among reviewers, the well respected John Gruber found the iPhone 6 size to be generally more usable than the iPhone 6 Plus, whereas the also well respected Terry White found the iPhone 6 Plus ideal for his large hands. Of course, the only opinion that truly matters for you is your own.
Apple's "Reachability" software tweak for the iOS helps those with smaller hands make the most of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus by temporarily moving buttons closer to your fingers, but the smaller iPhone models still are easier to reach across for most people. If at all possible, EveryiPhone.com would strongly recommend thinking about whether reading and video are more important to you than one-handed usability and how you prefer to carry the device. Then, handle both devices in person prior to purchase to make the best decision for you.
For those who see advantages and disadvantages to both sizes and their displays, the optical image stabilization and longer battery life may be enough to convince you to go with the larger iPhone 6 Plus even if it means potentially less convenient usage and more awkward pocketability in addition to a higher upfront price.
On the other hand, if an even smaller mobile is desirable and/or an even lower price is important -- but display size, camera quality, battery life, and NFC payment capability (Apple Pay) are less important -- you might prefer a more compact and less expensive iPhone 5, Phone 5c or iPhone 5s.
iPhone Purchase & Sale Options
There are many places to buy a new or used iPhone. However, buying your iPhone from a good company with an excellent reputation -- and quality after sales support -- will provide the ideal experience and save you money and time, too.
