For all the technology packed inside the latest iPhones, customer seemed to be the most excited about a feature that is low tech: the rose gold finish, which is a new color for Apple with its latest generation of iPhone. And Apple has finally bumped up rear camera specifications from 8 megapixels to 12.

If you don’t have an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, and you only have the iPhone 5s, you can still upgrade to a new iPhone 6s for only $10 a month, you just have to trade in the old device.

Apple has even gotten into the game, letting customers pay a little over $32 a month to lease an iPhone (with AppleCare included) and get a new one in 12 months.

Fans around the world have camped out for days prior to the release, and Apple has said pre-orders suggested sales were on pace to beat last year’s first-weekend performance. Financial analysts who follow the company generally expect the growth in the Apple’s iPhones sales to fall from its recent torrid pace.

“We had a great crowd this morning, everybody’s super excited”, said Verizon store manager, Jake Sandau.

Even the Galaxy S6 which is considered to be pretty weak in this department still has more RAM (3GB) than the iPhone 6s and you can see that in the gaming performance videos. Apple had fulfilled all rumored features in the new rival.

“I’ve been a user from the very beginning and I’ve upgraded every time a new one came out”, he said with a laugh.

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are out today, as well as all the attendant hysteria.


Fix firm iFixit, which has already dismantled the 6s to investigate its internal components, said the size of the battery had been reduced from the iPhone 6 and speculated that this was to accommodate the Taptic Engine.
