Apple’s “s” iPhone models often feature designs that are similar to the previous generation, but upgraded internal features. One of the features that’s allegedly going to be improved with the iPhone 6s is its camera.
A new report says that the iPhone 6s will have a 12-megapixel camera, up from the 8-megapixel camera on the iPhone 6. In addition to taking higher-resolution photos, the iPhone 6s camera will purportedly let you capture 4K video, which would be a first for an iOS smartphone.
The iPhone 6s front camera is also expected to get an update. The front-facing camera on the new iPhone will allegedly offer higher-quality photos as well as front flash support. Rather than integrated a front-facing camera flash, though, Apple will reportedly make the iPhone 6s flash a white screen after you press the shutter button to brighten the photo that’s captured. The iPhone 6s’s front camera will also reportedly support front-facing panoramas and slow motion 720p video capture.
These improvements to the iPhone 6s camera sound pretty nice, and I’m sure that selfie fans will appreciate the front camera flash and front-facing panoramas. Another welcome addition will be 4K video capture, a feature that’s been available on some Android and Windows Phone devices for some time now.
In addition to these camera updates, 9to5Mac suggests that Apple will enable animated wallpapers on the iPhone 6s. Animated wallpapers are already available on the Apple Watch, allowing you to show a moving jellyfish or some butterflies on your watch face. It’s said that the iPhone 6s will support animated fish in a koi pond and animated smoke. Based on that news, it’s suggested that a recently-leaked image of an iPhone 6s Plus box with a koi pond fish on it could be real.
Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 9.
