    Hey guys, does the iPhone 6S have the exclusive optical image stabilization feature that was only available on the iPhone 6 Plus? or do i still have to buy the iPhone 6S PLUS to get optical image stabilization?

    You could have answered that yourself in less time than it took to post this thread, but it's still exclusive to the Plus.

    We're 100% sure. OIS is unfortunately still an iPhone 6 Plus and 6s Plus exclusive feature. Perhaps for the iPhone 7...

    Direct from the Apple web site:

    Optical image stabilization (iPhone 6s Plus only)

    OP may be looking at Auto Image Stabilization. Not the same thing.

    damnit, you're right, it does say "Optical image stabilization (iPhone 6s Plus only)" in the specs on apple.com

    thats a bummer for sure.

    so now that i know the iphone 6S doesnt have Optical image stabilization, what are the improvments in the camera of the iPhone 6S(NOT 6S PLUS) other than the 12MP vs 8MP compared to the camera in last year's iphone 6?

    The 12MP is not just for 12MP, it's a new sensor so it contains newer technology in it. Apple mentioned improvements in how pixels absorb overlapping light for clearer pictures. Other than that, the pixels were decreased in size to 1.22um from 1.5um (at least not 1.12um like all other flagships) and the aperture stayed at f/2.2 (hasn't changed since the iPhone 5s).

    They also mention improved noise reduction. I do hope so because currently they overcompensate and leave a Monet Watercolors effect on some pics.

    I didn't take the time to watch that but on Apple the specs clearly state + only. Doesn't get more black and white than that.

    I believe we'll see a fairly big improvement in low light as they really pushed it and showed it off a lot in the keynote.

    Nor is the OIS, except maybe in video.
