One of the most notable new features the iPhone 6s has to offer is a significantly improved camera that, for the first time in years, will feature more megapixels. Apple’s two new handsets have 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras, with the iPhone 6s Plus also sporting optical image stabilization for both photos and videos. Other interesting iOS 9 camera features include support for 4K video recording, Live Photos, various recording modes for video and a front-facing camera flash.

But how good are the new iPhone 6s cameras? Where are the camera samples we usually see before a hot smartphone launches? Don’t worry, the wait is over.

Apple’s marketing team took care of that, partnering up with professional photographers from Vogue and Sports Illustrated to highlight the capabilities of the two new smartphones.

Sure, these are photos taken by professionals who know how to make pictures look good, but these are still very impressive shots.


Vogue captured 12-megapixel pictures and 4K video at the New York Fashion Week, where photographer Kevin Lu used the new iPhone 6s Plus – see some of them below.
