A CDE Definition
The successor to the iPhone 5S, introduced in March 2016. The "special edition" (SE) model uses the same A9 CPU and graphics processor as the iPhone 6s but with a smaller 4" screen. The SE is essentially an iPhone 6s in a 5S footprint for people who want a smaller model. See iPhone 6s.
The version of the iPhone that superseded the iPhone 6 in September 2015. The 6s and 6s Plus are nearly identical in size to the iPhone 6/6 Plus but come with the faster, more battery-efficient A9 processor, an improved fingerprint scanner and camera (see Live Photos). Concurrent with the 6s/6s Plus is the debut of iOS 9, which has numerous new features (see iOS versions). The Force Touch feature, introduced on the Apple Watch, was renamed 3D Touch in the 6s/6s Plus, providing two levels of touch pressure to activate functions. New "peek" and "pop" gestures were added to access functions within an app.
As of 2018, the iPhone 6 and 6s are still sold by Apple along with the iPhone 7, 8, X and SE.
