One year ago, we tore down Apple's radical new iPhone 6—and it didn't do half bad. Now, Apple say they've crammed a boatload of new technology into a phone that's imperceptibly thicker, just a few grams heavier, and several shades pinker: iPhone 6s. What does that mean, and how will it affect the repairability of our favorite fruit-based phone?
● The 6s is a hair larger than the 6 (138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm, vs. 138.1 x 67.0 x 6.9 mm), and it's stamped with a new model number: A1688.
● The 6s has also packed on a bit of weight when compared to its older sibling, weighing in at 5.04 ounces vs. the 6's 4.55 ounces.
● 4.7-inch 1334 × 750 pixels (326 ppi) Retina HD display with 3D Touch. The display assembly weighs in at a whopping 60 grams—a 15 gram increase over the one found in the iPhone 6.
● The Lithium-ion pack comes in at 3.8 V, 6.55 Whr, and 1715 mAh. It's a small but notable decrease from the 1810 mAh battery in last year's iPhone 6.
● 12 MP iSight camera supporting 4K video recording with 1.22µ pixels, and a 5 MP FaceTime HD camera
● Apple A9 APL0898 SoC + Samsung LPDDR4 RAM (as denoted by the markings K3RG1G10BM-BGCH)
● Qualcomm MDM9635M LTE Cat. 6 Modem (vs. the MDM9625M found in the iPhone 6)
