Don’t panic! This iPhone 6S isn’t mine; especially considering the color; it’s actually my wife’s, but the nice thing about marriage is that I get to steal her new phone to play with and make a post about. Without going into too much detail, my wife has been a long time iPhone user, and naturally like all other iPhone users it’s a lot easier to upgrade than to change ecosystems, and although I honestly don’t believe the iPhone 6S offers much in terms of an “upgrade” (vs. the iPhone 6) it’s still worth taking a look at.
First off starting with the color, yes it’s pink; or as Apple would like to call it rose-gold, and to be perfectly honest that’s not just a marketing name; the
pink rose-gold iPhone 6S does indeed have a goldish/bronze tint to it when viewed under lights at a certain angle (in fact I had to increase the fill-light in these photos to make the pink pop out more). At a quick glance you wouldn’t be mistaken for dismissing the rose-gold iPhone 6S with the gold of previous versions, but the subtlety of the color is appreciated; the best compliment to give the paint-job would be to declare that it is not gaudy. For some reason instead of actually printing out the full model name on the back of the phone, Apple have sufficed with a lonely “S”, keeping things as plain as possible. In fact they’ve also removed the storage capacity off the back of the device (this one happens to be the 64 GB version). When it comes to the tiny details, as usual we can rely on Apple to give them the utmost attention, including of course the raised camera ring on the back, which has a matching bronzish/pink paint job.
