One of the few surprises Apple showed off during today’s special media event was the Live Photos feature for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
Instead of video, Live Photos brings a different kind of experience to your images. The feature captures a second and a half of movement and sound before and after the photo is taken. You can simply press on the photo to bring it to life. Live Photos can also be set as your lockscreen wallpaper or even as a watch face on the Apple Watch. Live Photos can also be viewed on other Apple devices.
Here’s a quick look at a demo during the Apple event.
Each handset will be available in four different colors – silver, gold, space gray, and a new rose gold. As previously rumored, the phones will be made with more durable 7000-series aluminum found on the Apple Watch.
The new handsets will mirror the same prices and configuration of last year’s handsets. That means, with a two-year contract, the iPhone 6s will start at $199 and the iPhone 6s Plus starts at $299.
You’ll be able to preorder both models starting later this week on Saturday, Sept. 12. It will officially arrive on Friday, Sept. 25.
