Should you upgrade to the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus?
When new iPhones are introduced, one of the toughest decisions to make is whether or not to upgrade to the latest and the greatest. If money is no object, it won't matter. If you're on a plan that allows for early or yearly upgrades, it won't matter much either. Otherwise, it comes down to whether or not the new features in the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus are compelling enough to be worth the price. So what are the pros and cons and when is the value worth the cost? Let's take a look!
What size iPhone should you get: iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus?
Like last year, you have the choice of a 4.7-inch iPhone 6s or a 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus. One offers more utility, the other is easier to use. Which one you get depends entirely on what you want to do with it. Is it maximum portability and pocket ability or pure size and photo prowess? We'll break it down!
What iPhone 6s storage size should you get: 16GB vs. 64GB vs. 128GB?
If all you do is text, stream, and access web portals, you might be able to get by on 16 GB. If you shoot 4K video, download all your media, and want tons of apps, 128 GB might be the only option. If you do a lot of different things or are anywhere in the middle, choosing which iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus storage size to get can be one of the hardest decisions you make. That's why we're here to help!
What color iPhone 6s should you get: Silver, gold, space gray, or rose gold?
Color is one of the most visually distinctive and personal things about a new iPhone, which makes it one of the most important choices you'll have to make. Originally there was only one color, aluminum and black, but Apple eventually went to black and white, the space gray, silver, and gold, and now they've added rose gold as well. If you're on the fence about which color iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus you should get, here's what you need to consider!
