Well with a plethora of announcements taking place in the recently concluded Apple event, what we saw was the launch of flagship iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, a larger iPad (iPad Pro) and a new Apple TV. While the update to iPhone lineup with ‘S’ moniker is considered more of an incremental update to the preceding year’s flagships, Apple has once again laid more focus on the internals, keeping the look and feel more so the same(except for the new Rose Gold option).
Saying of the internals, we saw a new Processor, a new improved Touch-ID, a new Camera setup and other various small tweaks making debut, but what came as a breakthrough feature was the unveiling of the 3D Touch setup that enabled force touch mechanism on the display panel, adding a dimension of tracking the pressure sensitivity in order to distinguish between a light tap and a hard tap, thus enhancing the interactive capabilities. What this means is the evolution of iOS in a way that would help your iPhone distinguish between and act according to the sensitivity/pressure of touch. For instance, you can hold down the touch on the Camera app and you would then be offered to jump directly into various option such as take Pictures or Selfies, record Videos or Slo-mo. Talking of selfies, Apple introduced a new true-tone Front Facing ‘Retina Flash’ that turns the display 3x brighter when triggered as a flash. What this does is provide a solution to taking Selfies or recording Videos in low-light with your iPhone’s screen acting as a flash, thereby helping you click more brighter, clearer pictures in low-light. While this feature comes in-cooperated on the flagship iPhone 6S and 6S Plus only, we found out a way to let you get your hands on this new Front facing Retina Flash on any iPhone with or without Jailbreak simply by following the underlying step-by-step tutorials. Take a look!
