Apple’s iPhone 6s ticks the boxes for fans.

The iPhone 6s’s new 3D Touch feature will foster loyalty among existing Apple users, making it less likely they will defect to Android, technology research firm Telsyte has said. The so-called “cool” pope has done an extremely uncool thing this week and timed his first-ever visit to New York with the launch of Apple’s newest phone, which is now delayed.In this Sept. 9, 2015 photo, people look over the new Apple iPhone 6s models during a product display following an Apple event in San Francisco. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg) While the iPhone 6S looks the same as the iPhone 6, there are changes that will impress but probably not cause everyone to dash out and get one, according to the initial batch of reviews. “The battery life of the iPhone 6S leaves a lot to be desired,” according to a write-up at Techradar, echoing other reviews. Tomorrow, Apple will begin selling iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus whose signature features include pressing harder on the display to access new functionality. The monstrous traffic congestion caused by the arrival of Pope Francis is expected to be so bad that UPS and Apple are already warning customers against the worst: missing the promised Friday arrival date of our new aluminum and glass idols.

The problem is that Apple has added some features to the 6S that in some scenarios can subtract battery life (when certain new processor-intensive features are used). I received this email yesterday, and renounced my faith in the Catholic Church: An email tipster tells us he contacted UPS directly and was told the new phones might not even arrive until Monday. Not because of the upgrading process itself — that went without a hitch on my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Mini 2 — but because it soon turned into a scramble to find anything new that actually works. This move to disrupt the free flow of American commerce is consistent with the Pope’s anti-consumerism stance, but will do nothing to curb the number of young Americans disaffected by Catholicism and unable to find meaning in this shitty world. But I’m not alone: Apple’s iPhones are available in more than 100 countries — and a large number of new iOS 9 features are only available in a handful of regions.

Telsyte managing director Foad Fadaghi said features such as Force Touch might not cause iPhone users to upgrade their phones, but it would help keep users loyal to Apple. “No one feature on the phone is going to drive someone to upgrade their handset regardless of brand or make,” he said. “But what you’ll see is that those diehard Apple users that upgrade every model will certainly greet these new features with open arms. Instagram, Pinterest, Sky Guide, Dropbox, Facebook, Getty Images, PixelToys, ZORG, WeChat and Weibo are among apps that will issue updated versions to support the new features. Facebook told The Australian it would implement both features. “We are excited to explore options for using the new iOS 3D touch so people can quickly and easily take actions on Facebook like updating their status and taking photos.” a Facebook spokesman said. “We are excited to support Apple’s new live photos in News Feed later this year.” Mr Fadaghi said that based on consumer surveys and its assessment of the smartphone market, Telsyte estimated Apple would sell about 1.9 million handsets in Australia in the second half of this year. She can’t find restaurant reviews, I can’t tell her to reserve a place at a restaurant, I can’t get a movie review, and I can’t get sports scores — another feature introduced in iOS 9. The Verge called it “fun” but “a little gimmicky.” 3D Touch: This is new and is analogous to Force Touch technology used on the Apple Watch, 12-inch Retina MacBook, and MacBook Pro.

About 4.5 million handsets of all types would be sold in that period overall. “While Apple’s repeat purchase intention is still the highest in the industry, it has come down a few points in the last survey that we did; instead of being in the 80 per cents, it’s in the 70s now,” he said. Apple’s iOS features trickle down slowly, from major markets, to big and/or important ones (usually including Western European countries, as well as China and India), and finally to minor ones — everyone else, really. When Siri first came out, back in 2011, I pulled out my iPhone 4S and asked, “Hey Siri, what’s the nearest pizza place?” The result was a disappointing web search for that phrase, instead of a map of nearby pizza parlors. The upshot: Snappier performance, better selfie photos, an improved rear camera, and quick access to apps will make it a worthy upgrade for die-hard iPhone fans but it’s probably not the must-have upgrade for the average user perfectly satisfied with their current iPhone 6.

That particular feature is called Local Search for Siri, and for some reason, Apple recently stopped listing it on its iOS Feature Availability page (I contacted Apple to find out why, but haven’t yet received a response). Again, you can’t blame Apple for not launching all the features simultaneously in all markets — none of the tech giants, including Google, Facebook and Microsoft — do that.
