Apple has not yet added the link to these pages on their site, as they are incomplete, but I found them with a little bit of digging :
- iPhone 6s : https://www.apple.com/legal/rfexposure/iphone8,2/en/
- iPhone 6s Plus : https://www.apple.com/legal/rfexposure/iphone8,1/en/

In comparison, the iPhone 6 has the following specs :
- iPhone 6 : https://www.apple.com/legal/rfexposure/iphone7,2/en/
- iPhone 6 Plus : https://www.apple.com/legal/rfexposure/iphone7,1/en/

Based on the data we have right now, it looks like the reduced number of chips on the iPhone 6s has not improved its SAR value, which looks fairly equal to last year's iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 generated a little bit of silent heat on the web, as research in the documents published by the FCC showed that normal usage of the cellphone (LTE turned ON, Bluetooth turned ON, WiFi turned ON) brought the spec to the limit allowed by the FCC :

Although the scientific studies on the repercussions of a high RF Exposure are conflicting regarding the link between RF Exposure and a higher risk of cancer, irony shows that it's cancer that has killed Steve Jobs...

I think lots of people already know this to be true, they just don't care in the slightest.

Yup ... that one "doctor" came by before preorder day and was discussing SAR and cancer. Many passed on it.

I do care...I try to use airplane mode when I sleep. Not sure if that'll help but oh well.
Same for me. If I'm on the bus, I also put it in Airplane mode more often than not. I'm just there listening to my music and closing my eyes until I'm at the subway station.

When I have a meeting I'll put it on the table in front of me.

When I sleep obviously I put it on Airplane mode so nobody texts me something funny stupid that wakes me up when I work at 7 the next morning. It happened once in my life and I've had my lesson :p
