    What do people 'really' think the chances of the iPhone 6S, the 4.7" screen model, getting Optical Image Stabilisation in it's camera the same as the iPhone 6 Plus has now?

    I am saving my penny's for a new phone this year, and will most likely come back to the iPhone but I want OIS in the camera as having got it in my current phone, it makes a big difference. The camera is one of the reasons I want an iPhone as it has one of if not the best automatic camera on the market, but you can tell the difference between the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with the OIS

    It just depends if Apple decides in the future to differentiate the 6 plus more from the 6 than they have now, like give it more ram, a faster clock speed, and allow iOS to do more than it does now, etc. This year they gave it a bigger battery and better camera, but the software is about the same.

    Chances of OIS in iPhone 6S?


    I don't think they would add more RAM or better cou other then a minor spec increase ( dual core still ) until the iPhone 7 bump imo. I don't see them gimping the iPhone 6 And 6 plus with way better hardware in the 6S and 6s plus ? I think they will add a gimmick ( good or bad) in that and make the major spec upgrade in 2016. That's what they been doing so I don't see why change. The 4S brought Siri and 5s brought the Touch ID system. I forgot what the 3GS brought to the table.

    Perhaps OIS in the 6s and then add a better MP sensor in the 6s plus ?

    I could see them doing that. 16 gb base 6s with an improved 8mp camera and sensor with ois. The 6s plus gets an even better sensor and/or 10-12 mp camera with 32 gb base.

    Force Touch - Both Models
    Optical Image Stabilization - 6+ Only
    2GB ram - both models
    A9 - both models
    32gb base - both models (apple is learning their lesson not doing this with the 6 models)
    Camera upgrades - 12mp 6, 16mp 6+ 6+ will offer 4k as feature

    What's your source that "Apple is learning their lesson"?

    Look at IOS8 adoption.

    ???

    That has nothing to do with Apple's track record of selling the base models with 16 gigs, as all new iPhones come with iOS 8. You need to show us better stats backing up your claim that "Apple is learning their lesson" in still including 16 gigs in the base models.

    I keep telling you, 16gb baseline is causing ios8 adoption to lag.

    That pertains to iOS 8 adoption rate, nothing to do with sales of the base models with only 16 gigs. I'd think Apple and their shareholders would be more concerned about sales than the (free) iOS 8 adoption rate, at least enough to "learn their lesson."

    Clearly you don't understand, you create a bad user experience when your users are used to getting the latest operating system and can't because your buggy OS is to big for 25% of your user base.

    Apps are getting bigger, photos higher quality, video in 60 FPS and now running Apple Watch apps...

    Apple doesn't want the mess android has, part of the key to the quality of the app store and experience is because the ecosystem has very very little fragmentation for developers, users etc.

    ?

    The s series is always and has always been about spec increases across the board. Keeping the same design a year later and not having major internal changes would be extremely bad press. Also, how does them upgrading internals in the phone 'gimp' the current phones? They're what they are, you can't change them, they've already been shipped to customers and people are using them.. New products released in the future don't suddenly make the ones already out there worse.

    While that may be true, it has nothing to do with sales of base models. If they're still selling well Apple may elect to keep 16 gigs in the base models.

    I'm hopeful that Apple increasing developer apps to 4 gb max will bring a 32 gb base.

    Well someone who is discerning enough to expect and be upset by being unable to OTA update into iOS; would probably know to tether the iPhone to a computer and upgrade to iTunes. I suspect a large number of users who can't upgrade; also don't care about iOS or the latest and greatest features - at least until app compatibility starts hitting them with iOS 9 and above.

    100% chance of OIS on the 2015 edition iPhone's. Distinction between 4.7 and 5.5 iPhone comes down to software. What Apple is willing to do for the Plus as far as the 5.5" and possibly higher (someday) real state.

    I agree except with the 32gb thing

    Apple certainly learned their lesson. a lot more people ended up paying $100 more for their iphones to jump to the 'no-brainer' 64gb option...more $$$

    16gb will stay

    I tend to agree with this. 16gb was probably used to help up sell to the 64gb since most would have been fine with a base 32gb, but not 16gb. But 16gb just slowed down iOS 8 adoption since the file was too big. Most couldn't be bothered to do it through iTunes.

    Really? None of my friends did this no-brainer 64gb option. The phone was already too expensive as it is. Especially the 6+

    Of course they'll sell well - they're iPhones. Doesn't necessarily mean it's the right thing to do, though.

    I'd guesstimate that the vast majority of iPhone buyers go for the base model, whether that's 4GB, 8GB, 16GB or even 32GB.

    If Apple want to keep adding more apps (which one can't delete) and features (which are welcome, but take up space) to their OS, they should really only sell devices which can cope with the update without having to delete everything off of them beforehand.

    Why not? The S models are when internal changes happens(CPU, GPU, camera, battery etc)

    iPhone 4S had dual-core instead of 4's single-core which results in performance twice as fast, better camera and suff too

    iPhone 5s was twice as fast as the 5(new A7 with 64-bit(!!! they could have saved that for the 6 if it's what you say, M7, better camera at things like Low-Light images, faster auto-focus, Slow-Mo etc)

    Why not? :confused:

    They probably started working on it as soon as they finished the A8X

    Thank you, yeah I would agree with this, I think the iPhone 6 Plus may gain a faster CPU, it will obviously get a bigger battery etc.
