So why upgrade now?
Sam Says: This is by far the best iPhone Apple has ever released, and I think it’s even far superior to last year’s model – iPhone 6. If you’re still on the 5s or earlier, this is a no-brainer upgrade. Our clients spend more time on their iPhones than any other device. With all these new features and camera improvements it makes this decision an easy one, and sooooo worth it!
FYI: Orna and I went with the iPhone 6s Plus this year—even after returning ours last year thinking they were too big. Guess what? The 6S Plus is big… but we both LOVE it, and it’s so much easier on the eyes too. (For the over-forty crowd, ask me how to set your texts to a bigger font—whatever phone you’re on)
Some of the new iPhone features that we LOVE:
  • HUGE improvement with Touch ID – it recognizes your fingerprint so fast, it almost feels like you didn’t lock your phone
  • NEW Live Photos – all of your gorgeous, still photos now come to life. Camera records 1.5 sec of video before/after the photo – so cool!
  • NEW 12MP Camera and 5MP Front Camera for much better selfies
  • NEW 4K Video and Video Optical Image Stabilizer (6s Plus only) – breathtaking, razor sharp video!
  • NEW 3D Touch – screen is pressure sensitive. (Biggest game changer feature)
  • Faster WiFi and more LTE Bands (23) for better/stronger cellular reception
  • WiFi Assist – uses your great, high speed wifi when the cell signal is low – finally, good sounding phone calls
  • Peek and Pop – new feature that lets you preview an email, text message or photo without actually opening the app
Sam recommends purchasing the new iPhone using Apple’s own iPhone Upgrade Plan http://www.apple.com/shop/iphone/iphone-upgrade-program which includes Applecare plus an Unlocked iPhone – meaning you can use your new iPhone anywhere in the world with a local sim card.
