Apple iPhone 6 VS 6S, which one to buy? Apple has been known for their high-tech flagships. Their smartphones are always of a very standard performance because they take their time in making sure their devices are exceptional. However, the iPhone 6 was released sometimes in 2014 and it was one of the best smartphones that year and still trending.
Shortly after early 2015, the 6s was launched. This 6s is a minor upgrade from the iPhone 6 and it has nice features. But are there truly any differences between these 2 smartphones? Is the iPhone 6s worth upgrading? Let’s find out in our comparison.

The two smartphones has the same body design. They are both made of Aluminum and they both have a front glass. They also both have the same curvey build, and the same antenna lines at the back. However, the 6S has a completely tougher material than the iPhone 6 even though it looks similar to the phone. They both have a Touch ID/ fingerprint scanner. The 6 weighs less at 129g, while the 6S weighs 143g.

The 6 sports a tall 4.7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen screen with a resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels, the screen has a pixel per inch density of 326. While, the 6S sports a 4.7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 750 x 1334 Pixels in resolution and 326ppi.
Apple iPhone 6 Vs 6S: Software and Hardware

While the 6S houses the Apple A9 chipset with Dual-core processor clocking at 2.0GHz. In the RAM department, the 6s has 2GB and 16GB/32GB/64GB storage space.
For the Software, the 6 runs on the iOS 8 which is upgradable to iOS 8.4 operating system. While the 6s runs on the iOS 9 operating system.

Apple iPhone 6 Vs 6S: Battery
Powering both smartphones is a 1810mAh Non-removable Li-Po battery but it doesn’t charge fast per say.
Apple iPhone 6 Vs 6S: Verdict
Both smartphones are great with similar features with slight differences. The 6S has a 3D Touch feature that is easy and fun to use, this feature speeds up pretty much at every basic smartphone activity. It has a faster speed and an improved Touch ID system. However, I really don’t see the need to upgrade if you are coming from an iPhone 6 but if you are coming from an entire different brand then the 6s is for you.
