The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have an awesome new 12MP iSight camera

Apple has announced a new, rear-facing iSight camera as part of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The new camera features a 12MP sensor, which also features 50% more focus pixels, making the autofocus better than ever.

For better color performance, the new iSight camera has its color filters inside photo diodes, and deep trench isolation separates diodes for more color precision. The new camera features 4K video support and the ability to take 63MP panoramic photos.

  • Will image stabilization be on both models?
  • This is really the only answer I wanted. I didn't buy the iPhone 6 because it lacked OIS and I won't buy the 6s without it. It's insulting that they include it on the Plus models but not the regular ones, it's not as if the regular size phone is the "middle-class" option.
  • Good question, since the standard 6 doesn't have, correct? What about a third slow-mo feature on the rear cam? Slow-mo on the front one?? Sent from the iMore App
