7 iPhone 6S

This incredible new phone may look like its predecessor, the iPhone 6, but the iPhone 6S comes with new functionality that take it leaps and bounds beyond anything that’s come before it.

The 3D Touch function means that the phone knows how hard you’re pressing and offers quicker and easier ways to do things by popping content up and out. And Live Photos is an amazing new capability that captures the second just before and just after a photo is snapped, bringing that moment to life in ways we’ve never seen before. Oh, and did we mention that it also comes in rose gold? iPhone 6S, Apple Store, starting at $899.
