‘Low turnout’ mars Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus release
Every year, hundreds of thousands of customers queue outside Apple Stores immediately after the release of a new model of Apple’s iconic iPhone. In order to get good positions in the lines the tough among them camp right outside the venues some nights before the D-day.
This year, as the Apple iPhone 6s and its phablet-sized iPhone 6s Plus sibling get released today, millions of people — fans and critics alike — all around the world tune in to see what’s happening.
Improved hardware, same looks
The new iPhone models feature far better camera components than their predecessors. Inwards, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus come with improved Apple A9 chipsets (manufactured TSMC and Apple’s arch rivals Samsung) and 2GB of RAM capacity.
Despite the improved hardware, the iPhone 6s duo sports a striking resemblance with the 2014-released iPhone 6 siblings only that the former measure a hairline thicker.
No more #bendgate
A number of people have already put the new smartphones to test to confirm the claim.
It appears that Apple really overestimated the number of visitors/buyers expected at their brick and mortar stores today. One source claims that the low turnout can be excused as many people have taken the online shopping route instead. Oh is that so?
