It has officially been confirmed to us by the official retail partners of Apple, Ingram Micro, that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be made available starting October 16th at 12:01 AM at stores across the country. Analysts estimate that 3 to 4 million units were sold in China, out the total sales of 13 million units, which has surpassed global demand year-over-year (YoY).

In particular, Apple has used 1 GB of RAM in its iPhones for several years, and it has been rather inconvenient for users. Other high-cost components include the iPhone’s new 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing camera that together are estimated to cost $22.50, and the A9 chip at $22.00.

Live Photo is enable by default, which means that customers of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus will have to turn off this feature manually if they want to snap high-quality pictures in dark backgrounds. The smartphones look virtually the same as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but are slightly thicker and heavier.

Cook added that the new phones’ enhanced features were driving sales, and that Apple could not wait to launch the phones in additional countries by October 9.

EverythingApplePro also ran similar tests to determine if the iPhone 6S can withstand water. To appreciate the capabilities in the new iPhone 6S camera, check out Lisa Bettany’s test. So, if you do drop your phone in a pool it is likely to carry minor damages.

There was one major difference between the launch of iPhone 6S and that of iPhone 6.

It’s not just the Apple Watch that hides its water resilience – recent reports have also suggested the iPhone 6s is far more water resistant than expected. Then again if the iPhone 6s’s catch fire they might have to.

Last week a YouTube star put the iPhone 6S through the same strenuous bend test as the iPhone 6, which reportedly warped when kept in people’s pockets.
