Faster response time with iPhone6s touch ID for unlocking the phone. But, is it too fast?
Selfieflash is a thing with iPhone6s - We've warned you.
For iPhone6s cases make sure it has a lip. (That's what adds protection to your screen when your phone drops.)
Listening to Chilla's thoughts about app thinning. There's some debate. How much phone do we need?
