iPhone 6s and 6s Plus review: More than just a refresh

The iPhone 6s keeps the same design as the iPhone 6, but packs better cameras, a snappier processor and 3D Touch, a smart new way to get things done in fewer steps. Beyond that, the combination of iOS 9 and some well-built hardware help makes the 6s one of the best iPhones ever made... even if we wish it had some of the 6s Plus' niceties.

Pros
  • 3D Touch is a smart, helpful addition
  • First-rate performance
  • Improved cameras
  • Touch ID is faster and more accurate
Cons
  • Lacks optical image stabilization
  • Live Photos are hit-or-miss
  • Base model still only has 16GB of storage
  • Touch ID can be overly sensitive
