A new image of the packaging for the "iPhone 6s" has turned up online (via MacX), appearing similar to images of a box for the "iPhone 6s Plus" that were shared in late August. Both boxes showcase a koi pond-like fish against a white surface, suggesting the rumored packaging could be what Apple will use to box the next-generation iPhones, which are expected to be the centerpiece of the company's September 9 event tomorrow.

The fish image has also begun rumors surrounding the "iPhone 6s" and "iPhone 6s Plus," suggesting the new smartphones will include a motion wallpaper feature. Similar in spirit to the dynamic wallpapers Apple introduced in iOS 7, the supposed update would bring something more akin to the in-depth motion backgrounds of the Apple Watch and will feature images from fish in a koi pond to different color smoke clouds.

It just sucks that they'll likely be keeping the 16gb version. The new motion wallpapers will be nice but I have a feeling a lot of people won't feel much incentive to upgrade, especially if you already have a 6.

I'm really hoping Apple opens motion wallpapers up to developers; my Jony-Ive-swaying-in-light-breeze wallpaper needs to be a reality.

That white backdrop behind the picture leads me to believe that the screen will not be OLED. that kinda sucks. Hopefully I'm wrong
Definitely won't be OLED. There was never hope of this. This has been known since iOS9 beta was released back in June.
It did not introduce a UI shift. Settings, Phone app, Messages app, icons... It's all color space.

Besides us on this site - Why would regular people be upgrading their phones every year?

These upgrades are time so that someone coming from 4s/5/5s cycles would be static to upgrade

Based on this chart there are over 200 million eligible to upgrade.

Would it work with having a motion wallpaper and the fingerprint sensor with the almost instant unlock? I think it would, if the rumors about the 3D force touch are true as well. Then you could tap the screen for the wallpaper (or even further information) to appear without unlocking

Like I said on another thread.... if the display is OLED then surely it would have been discovered/mentioned with the numerous screen assembly leaks that have appeared
