In terms of design, iPhone 6s will bring slight improvements compared to its counterpart. The forthcoming smartphone is expected to feature the same look with ion-strengthened cover glass, round edges, and seamless finish with 7000 Series aluminum at the back. Rumors have also been claiming that it will house a bigger battery, and will be slightly thicker than iPhone 6. In fact, with 60% more strength, it will be a whole lot stronger and appealing.

In the display department, iPhone 6s is likely to pack an excellent viewing experience with its improved display with force touch capabilities. Just like the original iPhone 6, the “S” model will also be packing the same 4.7-inch LED-backlit widescreen display with IPS technology. There will be oleophobic coating for fingerprint resistance, but fore touch technology will be the biggest highlight of this device. The display of iPhone 6s will be able to trigger contextually specific tasks by differentiating between a light tap and a deep press on the screen.
Since a long time, Apple has been offering decent hardware to give top-grade performance with each iPhone. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been powered with 64-bit dual-core A8 chipset with 1GB RAM, and now, their successor is heavily speculated to feature the more powerful A9 chipset with 2 GB of RAM. The performance of iPhones has already been terrific, and this new beauty is expected to take iPhone experience to whole new level.
Software and operating system
On the software front, Apple iPhone 6s is likely to feature the latest iteration of iOS. The iOS 9 from Apple will offer a whole new look and feel, and will come with a rich set of improvements including, the improved photos app, settings app, low power mode for effective battery saving. The interface of iOS 9 is extremely fluid, and the upgrade iPhone 6s will be running it right out-of-the box. IPhone 6, on the other hand, is running iOS 8.4 currently.

Currently, iPhone 6 ships with an 8-megapixel iSight camera, and 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera. It produces ideal images under daylight and low-light conditions, but its successor is speculated to feature an improved 12-megapixel rear camera with capabilities to capture 4k videos and slow-motion videos at 240fps. It will deliver SLR quality images, and will be a whole lot better under low-light conditions. The FaceTime camera, on the other hand, is also expected to offer 1080p video capture capabilities with an improved flash.
The iPhone 6 comes in 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB avatars and offers enough space for file and app storage. But this time around, its successor iPhone 6s is expected to feature 32 gigs of on-board storage instead of 16 gigs, while the other two variants will not have any change. Moreover, this time also, Apple will not bring microSD card with its latest beauty.

The capacity is not revealed, but several rumors have been coming about different charging options including, wireless charging and the latest reversible USB charging. So, we can conclude that battery life of iPhone 6 will be better than its predecessor but as of now, nothing is confirmed by the company.
No doubt, iPhone 6s will be one of the best smartphone from Apple, but speculations are yet to be confirmed by the company.
