Overnight, Apple unveiled the design of the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus at a conference in San Francisco.
These highly anticipated new models boast a range of exciting new features, and of course, the most advanced technology ever.
We wouldn’t expect anything less.
Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Philip Schiller said, “The only thing that has changed with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is everything.”
It’s sleek and stylish, and comes in that ultra-glam new Rose Gold colour, but there’s an entire spectrum of features that make this sleek new iPhone the perfect travel accessory.
Here are just a few reasons why the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are sure to be the perfect pocket companion for any modern traveller.
It’s strong and durable
Drop this phone off a cliff in the Andes while trying to take a selfie with Machu Picchu? No worries! The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have the strongest display of any smartphone, featuring Retina HD display made from Iron-X glass and 7000 series aluminium – the same grade used in the aerospace industry
It takes picture-perfect snaps
There’s no reason to invest in a bulky SLR when you have the new iPhone. It boasts a 50% better camera snapping Live Photos; 12-megapixel pics that reveal the instants just before and after the shot, so you experience the living memory of that moment you held up the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
It’s a win for snapchatters too, with a 5-megapixel internal camera featuring Retina Flash to capture selfies, day or night
It has better connectivity
The new iPhones feature faster Wi-Fi, so you can make better use of hotspots around the world, as well as supporting up to 23 4G LTE bands, which basically means you get primo worldwide roaming – stay connected, wherever you are in the world.
iPhones are more secure
Recent findings regarding cyber security when travelling revealed that iOS users were at half the risk of falling victim to a cyber hack attack compared with Android users when browsing on their mobile devices abroad.
It’s all your travel devices in one
iPhones are extremely convenient travel buddies because of the array of functions supported on one, single device. Download buckets of handy travel apps, and make use of inbuilt Apple Maps to help even the most directionless tourist navigate any foreign land, as well as iBooks for reading on long flights and iPod, so you can take your favourite bands with you.
Pre-sales start on September 21, with official sales beginning on September 25.
