Apple is beginning to launch a new World Gallery as a way to bring some attention to the amazing photographers from across the globe that have been shooting on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Billboards are currently going up, and if last year's #ShotOniPhone6 campaign is any indication, this year's World Gallery is going to be every bit as inspiring.
The gallery includes 53 photos from 41 photographers that will be featured in 85 cities in 26 countries around the world. The overarching theme this year, if there is one, appears to be people — children, women, and men living their lives, doing their jobs, and being in the moment. While some of the artists featured are professionals, others are everyday people inspired by the world around them and able to use the iPhones 6s to capture what they see and feel.
The iPhones 6s feature an all-new 12 megapixel iSight camera with an Apple A9-powered image signal processor (ISP) that makes it easier than ever to pull your iPhone out, snap a picture, and get the best possible results in the widest range of conditions. That kind of "everyday photography" makes shooting great pictures more approachable and accessible to everyone, and it makes me want to stop writing this and get out and shoot.
So, while I do that, check out the list of photographers and the gallery of photos, and then grab your iPhone and start shooting your own amazing images!

Guys this is very subjective, so please throw the fanboyism away. I am a photography hobbyist, and I use an LG G4, Lumia 1520 and an iPhone 6s. I have seen many reviews that hail the LG G4 has a better camera. Yet, I find both Lumia and LG very slightly inferior to iPhone 6s in most cases especially in low light. All are equally good in full day light, but when it comes contrast, high dynamic range and color accuracy, iPhone comes on top. I prefer how natural looking the photos are on iPhone which I always edit even if take them with my DSLR. I have the camera+ app on the iPhone, but LG G4 is the winner when it comes to the manual mode. Lumia 1520 has even a better manual mode than iPhone. Yet, the cameras on both Lumia and LG are very slow and take about 2 seconds to snap a picture, and mostly the photos still come out blurry. The photos are not consistent at all on either Lumia and LG. So that being said, I still prefer iPhone's camera on top of both, because of its speed, accuracy, consistency and low light. Sometimes, it depends on the conditions when they all take better photos than one another. Sent from the iMore App

Can anyone tell me how to share my photo?? Sent from the iMore App
Take a photo using your phone, then select the desired human in your immediate vicinity, hold the phone up to his/her face and say "look!" Haha JK! On a more serious note, can you be more specific? Sent from the iMore App
O.k. To all who can't make an intelligent attempt at a debate, without sounding like a spoiled baby. I am a photographer, and I user many different sources for photographing. Sometimes the phone, sometimes a point and shoot and sometimes my dslr. It all depends on the circumstance. The source means nothing, if you have talent. I have taken photos with a home made camera, and where they might not be photos of the year, they were considered solid photos. Have you not heard the term, "the best camera is the one with you"? Grow up and realize, the world is changing and there are other definitions of photography, other than the person work a $10,000 camera. Your comparison to the super bowl, is only if "that guy" with the camera on the sidelines is actually looking shard that amazing scene taking place.
Am I the only one doubting the authenticity? The photo of the hand holding the sun at sunset....try pointing your iPhone 6s Plus to the setting sun and tell me if you get that result. I tried several times, the sun gets blown out and the light of distorted
I take a lot of photos on my iPhone, and I definitely can't make them look as good as these. Assuming some of these were post edited in the stock camera app, or through third party extensions. Sent from the iMore App
Incredible photos...not something one could do with cameras of two decades ago without great cost...
