These prices were the standard set by Apple at the time of the iPhone 6s Plus’s release. However, prices could vary slightly based on the carrier and any promotions they might have been offering at the time.


  • 3D Touch: The iPhone 6s Plus introduced 3D Touch, a new pressure-sensitive touch input method that allowed users to “peek” and “pop” into content, offering a new dimension to the iPhone’s user interface. This feature enabled quick actions directly from app icons and provided richer feedback within apps.
  • Live Photos: This feature allowed users to capture moments just before and after a photo was taken, resulting in a short video-like clip that brought photos to life. Live Photos could be set as wallpapers or viewed on other Apple devices.
  • Stronger Build: The iPhone 6s Plus was constructed using 7000 series aluminum, which is known for its strength and durability. This was a response to the “bendgate” controversy that surrounded its predecessor.
  • Rose Gold Finish: The iPhone 6s Plus introduced the Rose Gold color option, which quickly became popular among users.
  • Improved Touch ID: The second-generation Touch ID on the iPhone 6s Plus was faster and more accurate than its predecessor.
  • Camera Improvements: The iPhone 6s Plus came with a 12-megapixel rear camera, an upgrade from the 8-megapixel camera in the previous model. It also introduced 4K video recording capabilities.
  • A9 Chip: The device was powered by Apple’s A9 chip, which offered better performance and efficiency compared to the A8 chip in the previous generation.
  • M9 Motion Coprocessor: This was integrated directly into the A9 chip and allowed for features like “Hey Siri” to be always on, waiting for voice commands.
  • 2GB RAM: The iPhone 6s Plus doubled the RAM from the previous model, offering 2GB, which resulted in smoother multitasking and overall performance.
  • Storage Options: The iPhone 6s Plus was one of the last iPhones to offer a 16GB storage option. It was available in 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB variants.
  • Retina Flash: The front-facing camera introduced the Retina Flash feature, where the phone’s display would light up 3x brighter than usual to act as a flash for selfies.

These features and improvements made the iPhone 6s Plus a significant upgrade from its predecessor, and it was well-received by both critics and users.
