Apple revealed the highly anticipated iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus yesterday at a major event in the US, with our man John Kennedy there to get a close-up look.

You’ll notice that it looks quite similar to the iPhone 6 (and iPhone 6 Plus), but there seems to be a whole lot more going on under the hood.

With the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus you can now, for example, choose from options within an app by holding your finger on it for a second or so.

Also, the screen image is interactive, which, although hardly groundbreaking, is a nice touch.

They come with a 12MP iSight camera and a 5MP FaceTime Retina camera with Retina Flash.

The new devices can shoot 4K videos – much like the new Sony Xperia Z5 – and come with an A9 chip that doubles the processing power of previous iterations.

Both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will go on sale on 25 September in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico and Singapore.

There has been no mention of when the device will go on sale in Ireland or elsewhere in Europe yet.
