iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus official, will launch September 25 with band 12 LTE support

UPDATE: Apple’s iPhone 6s specs page confirms the device’s band 12.

Exactly one year after the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were announced, Apple has introduced the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

As their names suggest, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are refreshed versions of last year’s iPhone models rather than totally new hardware. That doesn’t mean that things are totally the same as last year, though. The first change is that Apple has added a fourth color option called Rose Gold, giving iPhone 6s and 6s Plus buyers four color options to choose from.

A major new feature of the iPhone 6s is called 3D Touch. The feature is similar to Force Touch on the Apple Watch, letting sensors built into the display determine how hard you’re pressing on the screen and present different options for different pressures. 3D Touch is available both on the home screen — where it’ll give you shortcuts to commonly-used app features — as well as in apps. For example, using 3D Touch on the list view of the Mail app will give you a preview of the particular message that you’ve pressed on.

3D Touch also includes a Taptic Engine like the one found on the Apple Watch, giving you feedback when you utilize the 3D Touch feature.

Apple has also upgraded the internals of the iPhone 6s. Included in the new iPhone is an Apple A9 chip, which Apple says is 70 percent faster at CPU tasks than the A8 chip in the iPhone 6, as well as being 90 percent faster at graphics processing.

The iPhone 6s also includes a new 12-megapixel rear camera, up from the 8-megapixel camera found on the iPhone 6. The new camera can capture 4K video, a first for Apple’s iPhone. The front camera on the iPhone 6s has been upgraded as well, with the new phone boasting a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. And while the front camera doesn’t include a flash like the rear camera, Apple has built a special chip to light up the display 3 times brighter than normal to add some more light to your selfies.

Speaking of photos, Apple today showed a GIF-like feature called Live Photos that’ll animate when you press on them, complete with sound.

Other updated features of the iPhone 6s include a second generation Touch ID sensor that Apple says is twice as fast as the original sensor and support for using “Hey Siri” without the phone being plugged in.

As for wireless connectivity, Apples says that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus boast LTE Advanced and faster Wi-Fi speeds. Perhaps best of all for Magenta Army members, though, is that John Legere says that the new phones support band 12 LTE. Woo!

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will go up for pre-order on September 12, with a launch scheduled for September 25. As for pricing, Apple says that the iPhone 6s will start at $27 per month, while the 6s Plus will start at $31 per month. However, T-Mobile hasn’t made any specific announcements about its prices for Apple’s new phones.

One other detail that’s worth noting is Apple’s new iPhone Upgrade Program. Using it, Apple will let you upgrade to a new iPhone every year, and you’ll be given an unlocked phone and then choose the carrier that you want to use it on. The program will start at $32 per month for 24 months and will include AppleCare+.

    Hey Legere,

    If you’re reading this, don’t let this release end up like last year’s launch, please.

    K, thanks.

    • Tim Moore

      That was so bad. Not selling at 3am EDT like everyone else was, then you couldn’t do it online once it was available, and then shipping…wow. I’d say it can’t be much worse but ya never know.

      • Joe

        Yeah t-mobile needs to step up their game on keeping track of orders when they are placed and in the correct order and also tracking numbers when shipped. It seems like every big phone that launches its always a mess.

  • Aurizen

    Anyone know of this has 2 gigs of ram like the leaks said? I’m glad it supports band 12!

  • Cellphone Chris

    For some reason, I’m not seeing this article from the home page? Found it via google search.

    • thepanttherlady

      Interesting, me either.

    • Alex Wagner

      Thanks for the heads-up. I think I figured the issue out, so let me know if the post still isn’t showing up after you refresh the home page.

      • thepanttherlady

        I’m still only seeing yesterday’s articles. I’ll try a different browser.

        ETA: Still not showing on the home page via Firefox and Chrome.

        • Cellphone Chris

          Same here on Chome and IE

        • Alex Wagner

          Strange. It started showing for me in Safari and Chrome when I hard refreshed it. I’ll investigate.

        • thepanttherlady

          I’m seeing it now.

        • Alex Wagner

          Great. Thanks for shooting me an email earlier!

  • Uri

    Would the new iPhone 6s work well with band 12 in Chicago

    • taron19119

      Come on it works with band 12

    • If there was band 12 in Chicago.

  • Cam Fas

    carrier aggregation?

    • Andrew

      yes, supported

  • J Cav the Great

    Apple said the new iPhone have “twice as fast LTE speeds as its predecessor”. How is this possible???!!

    • Andrew

      theoretical speeds

    • besweeet

      Carrier aggregation/LTE Advanced

  • A full three weeks before the deadline for AT&T to begin using band 12. That’s the one and only reason the IPhone has band 12, with T-Mobile and US Cellular also using it

    • k

      US Cellular mentioned that they have an agreement for LTE Roaming with a large carrier. My guess right now: TMO. Others said Sprint. But I agree with what you’re saying and my guess is that USC and TMO will now roam on each others network. If that be the case, go look at USC and TMO 700Mhz map together. Quite telling of the future…

      • Sprint has no 700 spectrum, nor do they use Band 5 LTE for their 800 spectrum. So, US Cellular must be referring to T-Mobile.

        • Marvin Lilmarv Bolden-Mitchell

          Wrong c spire gave sprint 700mhz in the memphis tn area

        • Marvin Lilmarv Bolden-Mitchell

          All phones that came out summer of 15 uses band 12 ……..for the cca

    • justin

      TMO has been using band 12 since the beginning of 2015 if not late 2014 even…….

      • They actually began using Band 12 in early 2014, early enough for the IPhone 6 Plus to be an early adoptee of band 12. But, we all know what happened on September 10, 2014. Band 12 was omitted from the IPhone 6 Plus.

  • jbrizzy

    And watch T-Mobile not get the color I want. Rose Gold

    • J.J.

      Nope two color maximum!! Lol

      • jbrizzy

        I know right. I was pissed when the edge plus didn’t even come in white smh

        • JLV90

          Samsung shows cool colors not available in US at their events. Blue and green S6s and the titanium colored note 5.

          They could probably make some money selling the custom phones directly

        • J.J.

          Yes im so fresh with my gold T-Mobile ….. Wait nevermind!!!

    • Trolling

      What wrong with Grey and Silver color? RACIST!

      • jbrizzy

        Lol they are boring colors. My favorite colors are pink and white and finally a phone that has both of those colors

    • notyourbusiness

      Nah, I think they’ll get all 4 colors.

    This news makes me happy. I’ll be checking T-Mo’s website frequently to preorder the 6s. It’s been years since I’ve used an iPhone, but I’m definitely ready to go back.

    • Adam

      It should be available for pre-order Saturday.

  • Jay J. Blanco

    Nice. This is the only nice thing I have to say

    • k

      Better than nice…awesome, great, fantastic. Time to hit Big Red again John L.!

      • Jay J. Blanco

        I ment as in iPhone world. I hate iphones

        • k

          ah. im on my lovely lg g4. im not a fan either, but considering my lady and half the US loves apple, im happy for iphone on 700mhz. incentive for everyone to move to tmo

        • Jay J. Blanco

          Definitely true. But that means people have to spend to get to take advantage of it

        • Kiwini

          Apple continued to fleece customers, refusing to bump up the basic model to 32gb. Maybe iPhone 7. Lots of gimmicks… And advertising 199 price when pretty much no carrier still offers that

        • Jay J. Blanco

          Apple is always behind andriod world. That’s nothing new

        • Joe

          LOL I like it how the iphones base model is 16 gig and i’m complaining that mid range android phones still are 16 gig base.

        • Trevnerdio

          Nah, non-techy iPhone folk have no idea, nor care, what Band 12 is.

  • KingCobra

    Very nice. Can’t wait to preorder the 6S Plus.

  • AngryBadger

    AppleCare+ has a 99 dollar deductible for fixing the phone. Jump varies from 50 to 175, IIRC. I assume TMO will match that monthly pricing schedule? I wonder how all that will play out.

  • justanormalguy13

    In other news, people using band 12 currently will see a huge decline in speed come the end of September.

    • Jay J. Blanco

      Not if tmobile has LTE-A

    • vinnyjr

      You have no idea what you are talking about. After T-Mobile lights up Band 12 they will bump up the speeds. I know what is going on. T-Mobile is data strong, no worries at all people.

      • Walt

        How will t-mobile “bump up the speeds” on band 12 if they only have 5mhz total? Its not like they can just go out and but more A block specturm, because no one is willing to sell any to them

        • Walt

          Buy* not but.

        • Joe

          Actually they can. They will not be increasing the capacity aka bandwidth because that is impossible but the speed that a lot of the band 12 sightings have been on the low side of the maximum theoretical speeds that you can reach on 5×5 mhz. There was a recent speed test that I saw on band 12 that managed to pull just a tad over 30 down. which means that all the other towers are not running at there maximum potential. I hope that I explained what vinnyjr was meaning by bup up the speed. But this does not mean that congestion will not be an issue.

        • Walt

          Max theoretical speed of 5×5 is 37mbps which in nothing when you have hundreds of people on one cell tower. And now that all new t mobile phones have band 12 its gonna take a hit in speed if a lot of people are conected to only band 12. Luckly for t mobile its not their primary LTE band, unlike sprint who uses band 25 operating at only 5x5mhz

        • Trevnerdio

          37mbps is max per user. If it were the total capacity, you’d never see over like 2.

        • You’re correct about T-Mobile’s primary LTE band not being 12 – their primary LTE band is Band 2, or the PCS subset.

        • Stefan Naumowicz

          You saw 30+ mbps on band 12 because of a lack of congestion, not because T-mobile isnt “running this tower to their maximum potential” as you seem to think. You seem to have a misunderstanding of how cell towers work. The lack of congestion that resulted in your high speeds is exactly what the OP is talking about – once millions of users simultaneously start connecting to and using this largely unused band those high speeds you’re seeing now will be no more.

      • DStudio

        That’s ridiculous! Supporting information or documentation, please? Anything at all?
        Yes, CA with another band will make it perform fine. But someone on band 12 only will have to deal with any congestion issues.

      • Stefan Naumowicz

        They can’t just “bump up the speeds” in a cell tower without increasing the bandwidth, and T-Mobile has no way of doing that.

    • k

      carrier aggregation baby

  • vinnyjr

    Any idea if the iphone bumped up the ram???

    • If they had, they’d’ve talked about it like it was the greatest thing ever.

      • DStudio

        Apple never talks about that spec with iDevices.

        We have to wait for a teardown, or confirmation that split-screen multitasking works on them.

    • gorilla

      Nope, 2GB RAM
      750 x 1334 4.7″ screen, 1810 mAh non-removable battery…feels like an Android phone from 2011.

      • Mike Palomba

        2GB would be an upgrade… he 6 only has 1GB. Did they actually make it 2GB?

  • Raiterio Patterson

    Wonder if it will be cheaper to pre-order with Apple instead of T-Mobile? Time will tell

    • Mike Palomba

      I think it would cost the same

  • Cam Fas

    Looks like they shrunk the battery size in the 6 I’m guessing they probably shrunk it in the 6plus S too. I know by watching the apple commercial on the site halfway thru the video it shoes a close up of the battery 1715MAH

  • Kiwini

    For those looking for Samsung Galaxy S6, Tmobile website not only has $100 off but also an additional $80 coupon code so you can get the 32gb version for only $500 in this online back to school sale

    • Acdc1a

      Look! A squirrel.

    • Richard Roma

      There is a reason for that. I was foolish enough to pick up a S6 for $679, this phone can now be purchased new for $449. Heck, my EIP balance is still higher than this.

      • Acdc1a

        What are your thoughts on the S6? My S5 so soured me on the brand that they couldn’t GIVE me an S6.

  • Dark enV

    I’m very glad to see the support for band 12, but I’m still really pissed about Apple keeping 16GB as the base model. There’s no reason to keep that pitiful storage configuration other than greed. It doesn’t affect me much as I will be getting the 128GB 6S Plus model but for the average consumer it royally sucks. My main question is about whether T-Mobile will be carrying all storage configurations in stores or just the 16GB again. Where I live all the stores carry just 16GB iPhone 6 phones, if you want more storage you have to order online, that is really annoying especially if you’re trading in a device. Also I’m curious to how those who signed up for the $15 iPhone promotion are able to pre-order the new phones. I know they’ll have to do it through the store but nothing more than that.

    • Acdc1a

      I think the answer is the majority of users aren’t sophisticated techies. The fact that the majority of sales are of the 16GB unit reinforces that.

    • Mike Palomba

      T-Mobile carried more then 16GB models. I got my 64GB Gold model in a T-Mobile store

  • Chapimex

    Was there any mention of the differences between iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus (other than the size, of course)? Last year, the 6 plus had better battery & and a better camera (among a few other things, like being able to reply to emails horizontally). Wondering if the same is true for the 6s and 6s Plus.

    • Richard Roma

      Yes, same deal with this update.

  • Acdc1a

    They made them thicker and put in SMALLER batteries. With 326ppi resolution (6s) I have no idea how Apple can command such a premium or why people still buy them. These phones have mid range specs at best and there’s no longer an “app gap.”

    • Richard Roma

      Compared to which phone exactly?

      • Acdc1a

        Compared to the 6.

    • Mike Palomba

      I am not so sure about the smaller battery part, it may be true but I haven’t heard that. But, when using the latest iPhone do you feel any lag or stutter at all? When you look at the screen do you think it looks like a cheap display? The answer is no, apple is able to optimize their hardware and software to work its best and keep it running as fast, if not faster, then android counterparts with much higher specs.

      Also, there is still an “app gap” it is just not as large as it used to be.

      • Acdc1a

        Actually the plus has a beautiful display. The 6 has a middling display ironically on a smaller device.

        Stripped down Android works well on very low end phones. Bloat causes lag. I think everyone would be wise to pick up a new Motorola or Nexus phone to compare.

    • Bobby Singh

      Yes, Its a smaller battery but you would have to keep in mind that the new iPhones comes with iOS 9 and they manage to get same battery life as the older iPhone 6 on iOS 8. Also, my iPhone 6 performs better with 1 gb ram with my android with 2 gb. I am not saying that one is better than the other but it sounds silly when people compare iPhone specs with android. it should be user experience that needs to be compared.

      • Acdc1a

        It’s not quite so silly when you figure component costs vs. retail price.

        Plain, vanilla Android works fine on 1GB of ram as well.

    • Hector Arteaga

      I have an iphone 6 plus and a Note 5. My iphone runs just as well as my Note 5 and I haven’t noticed any difference when running multiple apps. They are both extremely snappy.

      • metalspy8

        I have both as well. But lately my iPhone 6 plus has been buggy.

    • AJ2

      Apple logo. Media elites and celebrities hyping it. That’s why you can still sell a 16gb phone at that price, and then claim it a 199 when 3/4 major US carriers don’t offer that. You’ll note they never said the price was 649. Also interesting the Apple upgrade program for unlocked phones promotes you can then use it on any carrier. Also not true if you read fine print. Only valid with the big 4 if Verizon, ATT, Tmobile & Sprint. So can’t use it on MVNO or prepaid if you really want consumer choice to own your phone & use it on whatever network you want whenever you want. So no Straight Talk, Solavei, Metro Pcs, Ting, Cricket, Boost etc.

  • Richard Roma

    Lets hope that Tmobile has fixed their online ordering as this is a disaster every single year.

    • Yes! The Lumia 640 people know that firsthand!

  • Mike Palomba

    Finally I’ll have a phone with band 12!

  • Mike Palomba

    This is going to be my first time preordering a phone at midnight and I hope I don’t suffer the horror story that happened last year

  • John just did a periscope, and stated he will make a big announcement about the pricing tomorrow! Should be good.

    • Justin

      Did he really say something about selling the apple watch?

      • Yes. Go follow him on periscope and watch the video again.

        • Justin

          Thanks man for the info.

  • tae

    is tmobile and uscelluar got roaming agreement

    • notyourbusiness

      I don’t know about that, but T-Mo and ATT do. Last month, I was around the boodocks, aka Amenia, NY and saw ATT suddenly appear on my phone.

    • k

      through carrier association they do, along w sprint. no direct tie as yet

  • Sayahh

    It is waterproof yet?

  • Twomanychoices

    Off the subject I just bought the note 4 and out of the box it had a update and it is now running Android 5.1.1. But tmobil website says that 5.0.1 is the latest update. My wife older note 4 we did not update because of the problems with 5.0.1 has anybody else revived 5.1.1. Just wondering. And cheers to iPhone fans on a new wonderful device

  • Cam Fas

    Wish they went more in depth on if the processor was built on the 14nm process and also how many gigs of ram and the type of ram would have also been nice.

  • Crucifixion Cruxi

    S stands for SAME SHIT

  • Cam Fas

    Also funny how the iPad pro doesn’t have band 12 and its stuck on the older modem. Thats a bummer because I actually wanted to upgrade too that iPad.

    • UMA_Fan

      I think it’s a non issue as long as your iPhone supports 700mhz. Apple has made tethering to your iPhone super simple by just showing it as another connection in your WiFi settings.

      In those instances I’m without other Tmo coverage and 700mhz is all there is I can live using tethering data.

      • matt

        when i tell people about cellular, i tell them the reason to get it is find my iPad. if you keep your wifi only iPad locked, it only connects to wifi networks it has connected to before. it cant click i agree at mcdonalds. if it gets stolen then it might not ever come back to you. with the cellular model, you can always find out where your iPad is. 200 mb that tmo gives u is more then enough for find my iPhone.. and if ur iPad does get lost u can always buy more data!!! heh

        other then find my iPhone, then yeah you could be fine with tethering. if your carrier even allows it. sprint doesn’t allow tethering.

        t-mobile is the best deal. because when u run out of paid data you get slower data just like you would with a phone. no other iPad plan keeps your data going.. unless they shut you off or they charge you overages.

        and a final note, is for $20 you get 1 gb and music freedom on your iPad

        • matt

          if someone steals your wifi only iPad. and there are no wireless networks around that it knows about beforehand, then tough luck it aint coming back unless it grows legs. it cant even respond to an erase request. it will just sit there waiting for someone to unlock it until hell freezes over.

    • matt

      if they used the iPhone 6S and 6s+ modem that it would of meant selling seperate Sprint and GSM models. the nice thing about last years chipset was because it had both CDMA and GSM. this time around you lose CDMA in exchange for channel 12
      the sim free sprint model of the iphone 6 is CDMA just like the t-mobile version, its just sprint likes the serial numbers and the extra spark channels. nothing is stopping sprint from whtelisting all the iPhones 6 phones like verizon did 2 weeks ago

      blame qualcom, dont blame apple

      im bummed because i don’t want to buy the one with the most storage just go get cellular. i really wish apple would just get rid of wifi only tablets and make the cellular option FREE

      • KingOfThePhones

        That is not exactly accurate. Instead of using the 2014 6 cell module, Apple could have used the 2015 6S CDMA cell module. That would have given the iPad Pro at least all of the bands and technologies of the 2014 6 module, PLUS band 12 (and some other additional overseas bands). While doing so would not have included AT&T’s band 30, the 2014 cell module didn’t include it either. I am quite mystified that they didn’t do this. Also, the new iPad mini 4 also kept last year’s cell module so no band 12 there either.

        • KingOfThePhones

          Small correction… I meant to say that the 2015 module didn’t include band 30. Doesn’t change the point I was trying to make

    Please let me know whether USA T-Mobile (Unlocked) iPhone 6S Model will have both FDD-LTE 1800 and TDD-LTE 2300 bands? Thanks

    • matt

      the specs are up.

      AT&T / TMO / & ????
      LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30)
      TD-LTE (Bands 38, 39, 40, 41)
      TD-SCDMA 1900 (F), 2000 (A)
      UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)
      GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

      this time around they did not put CDMA in both models. so :
      LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29)
      TD-LTE (Bands 38, 39, 40, 41)
      TD-SCDMA 1900 (F), 2000 (A)
      CDMA EV-DO Rev. A (800, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)
      UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)
      GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

      looks like if u want CDMA EV-DO then u have to buy the sprint model.

      Td-SCDMA is CDMA for china

  • The Lumia 950 XL still have superior specs. But, none of that will mean anything if these following radios are absent from the Lumia flagship next month: CDMA/EVDO, VOLTE, Band 12, Band 13, Band 25, Band 26, Band 28, Band 29, Band 30, Band 38, Band 40, Band 41 and Band 44.

  • KingCobra

    Now the big question for Mr. Legere is will the T-Mobile website actually be able to handle all the iPhone preorders this year unlike that disaster that we had last year?

      I don’t think the 6S release will be as bad as last year. The “S” releases never are as crazy. But you’re right–their website doesn’t seem to be able to handle even slightly increased traffic. It’s slow as hell when I try to pay my bill lol.

      I’d like to think Legere and crew have finally figured it out, but I’m doubtful.

        It was pretty bad for the 5S as well. Plus a ton of T-Mobile stores didn’t get any at all until around November.

    • John Kreese

      I was sitting here thinking the same thing.

      T-Mobile likes to talk trash and thump their chest, but will a simple web site be able to handle the increased activity?

      Its awful just browsing the site on any other day yet alone when a new phone is available.

    • gmo8492

      How about people get off the couch and actually go to a physical store for once.

    • Based off the disaster they had with the best selling Lumia 640, I’ll say no. They’ll bungle the IPhone pre-orders.

  • Verizonthunder

    Lets hope Apple addressed the cell reception issue that plauges the Iphone 6 and 6 plus. Even band 12 will be less useful if the phone cannot grab a decent signal.

    Wonder if Tmobile has quietly discontinued its iPhone Test Drive program. The Web page link no longer works.

    • Seems like it. Looks like “Test Drive” is getting replaced with “Lifetime Coverage Guarantee” Click on the “coverage” link on the website, and scroll down. It used to say TestDrive, but now has been updated with “Lifetime Coverage”

    When will preorder be up for Tmobile??

    iPhone 6S – The only phone where you can record in 4K, but watch it on a 1344 x 750 screen (8X resolution loss). Oh, and forget Airplay or Apple TV playback. They don’t support 4K, not even the new Apple TV.

    Hope you have a 5K iMac or a 4K computer monitor, or a lovely internet connection to be uploading your 4K video to YouTube all the time so you can watch it in the native resolution.

    Man, iPhones are shitty. Can’t believe people buy these things. Probably still has 1GB of ram, too. Would be shocked if it had 2GB.

    • Tom@L

      hmm can you see 4k on galaxy s6?

      • Jose

        Nope but you can on Sony Z5 premium :)

      • Fuuuuuuuuu

        Nope, but at least it’s not an 8x resolution loss like on the paltry 1344 x 750 iPhone screen. Even budget android phones have better displays than that haha

        • emcdonald75

          The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are both excellent phones, but I think the screen resolutions should have been 1080p. The bigger phones, like the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ should have the 2K screen resolutions. Samsung should have standardized 1080p for their smaller phones and 2K for their larger phones. Those batteries are honestly too small to account for such screen resolutions. Small batteries, small screens, small phones should equate to lower resolutions. I say lower screen resolutions but 1080p still beats the iPhone 6 and 6S, and might have given the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge much greater battery life and faster speeds.

      The issue with Android (and a plethora of their vastly technologically uneducated users) is that you’re all worried about how big your d*ck is, not how good it performs. Android smartphone makers HAVE to make their phones more powerful because the OS is such a resource hog. Heck, even the applications Google makes for Windows and Mac OS are resource hungry. Therefor, the hardware manufacturers have to jump through hoops to make sure their phones have an octa-core 8Ghz processor with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and “HD” displays. Oh, and don’t forget the 5849mAh batteries to power it all. And even THEN the experience can really choke up rather quickly. An iPhone on the other hand has 1/3 of the power of a lot of the high-end Android models, but barely skips a beat. You don’t know how many times I’ve put them side-by-side at work (I work in the wireless sector) and opened up all the same apps across the latest Android phone and the latest iPhone and the latter can keep opening apps leaps and bounds ahead of the Android phone that’s already begun to choke up.

      Oh, and don’t get me started on security. The Google store used to be a hackers wet dream. It’s gotten better, but Android is still MUCH more highly susceptible to viruses than iOS.

  • Walt

    Can someone tell me if you can use your current t-mobile sim card in an ipad just for data purposes? Thanks

    • Jojo

      Yea there’s a way you have set up apns for it

  • Android_God

    I think some of you need to get on board with modern day society and realize that IOS is the one true OS and Android is nothing but a little green kids toy robot.

    • Joe D

      Theyre essentially equivalent. Commoditization is inevitable.

    • Dustin Roe

      Did you wake up from under your bridge to do what all proper trolls do and throw rocks?

    • And both OSes are on the F Honor Roll as far as reliability and security goes.

  • emcdonald75

    I just realized how much heavier is the iPhone 6S Plus. The weight went from 172g to 192g. Is that because of the new 3D Touch feature? I am thinking about giving the iPhone 6S Plus a try because I am upset with Samsung for the slow updates and complete neglect for the Galaxy Note 4, which I feel was a great phone until the 5.0.2 update killed it.

    • AngryBadger

      dude, totally janked the experience on the Note 4. :(

      • emcdonald75

        I wish Samsung put an end to Touchwiz and just include certain Samsung apps, like S Health. There is no reason for all of the hardware horsepower if the software destroys the Android experience. Samsung should focus on optimization and updates for their phones. Previous phone models are being dropped by Samsung like a bad habit. I am hoping that Android Marshmallow fixes the damage done by Lollipop (even though Lollipop was pretty). I love Material Design, but I love functional and stable phones much better. I just hope I can stomach iOS for a year at least because I love the open and customizable Android OS. Hopefully Android will return next year better than ever. Also, I hope developers invest more in the Android OS instead of running to iOS first and then porting apps over to Android (and that only happens with certain apps).

          try the nexus line of devices. they are far more stable.

        • emcdonald75

          Believe me, I’m keeping my eye out for the new Huawei Nexus before I decide to jump to an iPhone. Plus I want to keep my Galaxy Note 4 as a back up device. It is still pretty neat. It would be better if Samsung can just fix the bugs and optimize the software.

        • steven berson

          Got the new edge plus. Samsung apps/features isn’t as overwhelming as it was before. Greatly improved from the days of s3-s4. Split screen and some other little things that Samsung added made the user experience better. Trust me am shocked as well lol.

  • Tmoguy1

    Just preordered the 4.7 inch 6S Space Gray. One driving factor really for me was the support of band 12. I hope I will see significant Improvment in coverage within 30 days or I just might go back using my 6 instead. FYI I’m in the so cal region
