There Is More to the Apple iPhone 6s Than Meets the Eye
REVIEW: While Apple's iPhone 6s looks just like its predecessor, nearly everything about its features and performance has changed for the better.I walked into the T-Mobile store in Fairfax, Va., with my iPhone 6. This is the same phone I wrote about a year ago when I finally gave up my BlackBerry for an iPhone. I told the sales guy that I wanted to do a trade-in, and a few minutes later I had a new iPhone 6s. Not that you'd be able to tell the difference. Unless you look at the back of the new iPhone where there's a letter "S" in a square, it's unlikely you'd notice that the new phone is one-one hundredth of a millimeter thicker. You might notice that it's a half ounce heavier, although I didn't. Otherwise, my new Space Gray iPhone 6s looked just like the earlier model I'd traded in a few minutes before. It wasn't until I got the new iPhone back to my office and had restored the settings from the old phone that I noticed the significant speed difference. After I'd set up the fingerprint scanner, I found that the old practice of briefly touching the home button to see my notifications would no longer work.
This new phone and the fingerprint reader are so fast that no matter how quickly I touched the home button, the phone's home screen would open. I now had to see notifications by flicking down the screen from the top.
