iPhone 6s Software

The iPhone 6S originally shipped with iOS 9; the operating system leverages the 3D Touch hardware to allow recognition of new gestures and commands. The "Retina Flash" feature in iOS 9 allows the iPhone 6s display's brightness to be used as a makeshift flash on images taken with the front camera. "Live Photos" is also a popular highlight in iOS 9 that captures a short video alongside each photo taken. The iPhone 6S is capable of running iOS 12 (Common iOS 12 Problems and How To Fix).

The iPhone 6S set a new first-weekend sales record, selling 13 million models, up from 10 million for the iPhone 6 in the previous year. However, Apple saw its first-ever quarterly year-over-year decline in iPhone sales in the months after the launch, credited to a saturated smartphone market in Apple's biggest countries and a lack of iPhone purchases in developing countries (Further Reading: How Many iPhones Are There 2019).
