    Basically the jump from 6 --> 6s is BIGGER than any other "s" jump and rivals the jump from 4 --> 5 or 5 --> 6. Let's see:

    - FORCE TOUCH / taptic engine
    - always-on siri
    - a9
    - 4k video recording
    - RETINA DISPLAY FLASH
    - 7000 series custom aircraft grade alloy
    - a scratch resistant screen like the world has never seen
    - rose gold

    That's an amazing upgrade, I think Apple is selling themselves short by calling this 6s.. can't wait to see what they roll out for the 7!!

    No.
    - 3D Touch + Taptic = Apple Pay (6) = Touch ID (5s) = LTE (5) = Siri (4s) = Facetime (4) = Video camera (3gs) = 3G+GPS (3g)
    - A9 +70%, A7 +100%, A5 +100%, 3gs +100%
    - camera always get updated (4k but at 30 fps now)
    - 7000 alloy to fix bendgate = 4s fix antennagate
    - new scratch resistant screen is no Sapphire so it could be better
    - retina flash + always-on-siri are some random new features (I could pick something like this with other s model too)
    - rose gold = gold on 5s

    And don't forget
    - start at 16 GB just like 3gs
    - Heavier just like 4s
    - same design just like EVERY s model

    So this is 6s.

    I thought so too actually. If they changed the design a bit I think it could've been the 7.

    Well let's look at the 2 I see as the biggest features.
    3D Touch (no ****ing clue why they couldn't call it force touch. It's extremely stupid) and 4K video.
    3D Touch and 4K video are very nice things, but they just don't seem ground breaking or anything that would require changing the name to 7. A good upgrade but not a must have so S fits it IMO.
