Apple iPhone 6s vs Apple iPhone 7

Apple iPhone 6s is the successor of the iPhone 6 with a bit advantage in the specs and size. The device is just like any other Apple product with a great performance, stylish design, and of course a bit costly. With an LED-backlit IPS LCD display of 750 x 1334 pixels resolution, the smartphone has a good display that stands out from any other competitors. Powered by the Apple A9 chipset, Dual-core 1.84 GHz Twister CPU, PowerVR GT7600 (six-core graphics), and 2 GB of optimized memory, it’s one of the best devices that you can get. The device is available in 4 variants as 16/32/64/128 GB.

Apple iPhone 7, on the other hand, is a bit better in specs like they always do in a series. No need to say that it is a bit costly as well. The device uses the same display as the iPhone 6s model but still weighs less than its predecessor. Under the hood, the iPhone 7 packs the Apple A10 Fusion chipset that delivers a comparatively better speed coupled with Quad-core 2.34 GHz (2x Hurricane + 2x Zephyr) CPU, PowerVR Series7XT Plus (six-core graphics), and 2GB of RAM. It is available in 3 different variations as 32/64/256 GB models.
