The Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus appears to be a hit.
Its lightning-rod features, Force Touch and Apple Pay are both made possible by Apple iOS 9 (Kelly, 2015, September 27). Apple iOS 9, albeit having some security issues, thanks to these features is making the Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus a hugely popular smartphone this Christmas.
13 million times over since the weekend period starting from Friday September 18th 2015 as sales have demonstrated as per my observations in 13 Million Apple iPhone 6S Sold as Apple iPhone 7 Rumours have begun, besting 2014 sales figures is more than proof enough!
American, and the world, it seems, are in love!
But is it also (Collins, 2015, September 28) waterproof? Take a look at these test videos posted on Friday September 25th 2015 and judge for yourself.
This set of videos was posted on YouTube a few days after the Apple iPhone 6S Plus by YouTuber Zac Straley. They clearly demonstrate that they not only do they still work after 24 hours of dunking in water, but the Touch ID headphone jack, the charging port and even the speakers are unharmed.
So what gives, Apple? Is this a secret feature that you planned to have while overcharging on AppleCare.
