Apple products are evolving.

The latest version of the iPhone brings innovations great and small,that range from brighter selfies to new ways to touch.

Apple’s slogan for the new iPhone 6s is: “The only thing that has changed is everything”.

The original iPhone introduced the world to Multi-Touch. With 3D Touch, on the new iPhone 6s, things became possible that weren’t before.

It senses how deeply the user presses the display, allowing all kinds of essential task to be done more quickly and simply.

iPhone cameras are the most popular cameras in the world and the iPhone 6s introduces Live Photos, a new way to relive memories.

It captures the moments just before and after the picture is taken and sets it in motion with just the press of a finger.

iPhone 6s is powered by the custom-designed 64-bit A9 chip. It delivers performance once found only in desktop computers.

Using a highly advanced fingerprint sensor that’s now faster, Touch ID makes unlocking the iPhone 6s easy, fast and secure.

iPhone 6s features long term evolution (LTE) Advanced with speeds up to twice as fast as the iPhone 6. When connected to Wi-Fi, iPhone 6s allows things like web browsing and downloading apps at speeds up to twice as fast as well.

The new iPhone 6s comes in four colors. A new rose gold finish joins space gray, silver and gold.

Some students at The University of Louisiana at Monroe are thrilled about the new iPhone.

Kortnei Barber, Junior kinesiology major is one of those students.

“The iPhone is already the best smartphone in the world, Apple is pretty much in competition with themselves and they just keep getting better. I would love to get it, “ said Barber

Other students aren’t so thrilled.

Markeia May, junior nursing major, said the newest iPhone isn’t a surprise.

“I guess if I was to get the new iPhone I would be most excited about the front camera flash. I don’t really have the urge to go out and buy one.” said May.

May also said that she loves Apple. But some of the features they are calling “new”, Android already has.

Zakinya Shaw, junior Spanish major said, that she has heard about the new iPhone and that it is pretty much the same as the 6 but better.

“As an Android user, I would prefer Android because of the battery life,” said Shaw.

The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus cost the same as the iPhone 6 models did, starting at $199 and $299 with a standard two-year carrier contract.

For the first time, Apple is offering a payment plan in retail stores: for $32 a month, allowing the customers to get a new iPhone every year.

The phones will ship and be in stores Sept. 25, according to Apple.

This November, Apple will release two more products, the new iPad Pro and the new Apple TV.
