There's plenty to look at in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, so today Kelly Guimont joins Jeff Gamet to talk about Live Photos, Apple's new cameras, making the move from the iPhone 5s, and using 3D touch.
Taking a Live Photo is pretty neat, and as long as you can iMessage someone running iOS 9, they can share in that neatness. If you want to share with other people, or even your Mac, you'll need an alternate solution. Kelly shows the easiest way to share out that amazing Live Photo for all the world to see, regardless of device.
Live Photos are one of the new features of the iPhone 6s and 6s+. They're neat, but how do you show them off? Kelly has the scoop on how to send them to other Apple users, who can see them, and how to make them available to everyone else.
With Apple Music trial periods beginning to expire, the company has posted a series of videos on YouTube that offer guided tours to many features on the service. Below we have Guided Tour: Apple Music Playlists. It walks you through how to navigate playlists on the streaming service and breaks down the different types offered (Apple Editor Playlists, Activity Playlists, Curated Playlists). All of the icons and other features are explained, too.
Google Maps joined the Apple Watch bandwagon Tuesday. An update to the Google Maps client for iOS slipped in an Apple Watch app along with new comparison feature for different travel modes.
Check out this developer tutorial deal called the iOS 9 and Swift Adventure Bundle. It includes Rick and Jenna's iOS 9 Adventure Course and Swift: Learn Apple's Programming Language.

Dr. Mac got an iPhone 6s last Friday; his initial impressions are in Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves Episode 143, a delightful little ditty he likes to call, "Dr. Mac's First Look at the iPhone 6s." It wasn't all wine and roses (Spoiler alert: He thinks the Rose Gold looks too pink). But after a rocky start, the Doc is pretty happy with his newest gadget.
Today Jeff takes a closer look at 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with Bryan Chaffin. Yesterday's iPhone 6s first look got a lot of feedback, so we respond to listener comments, too.
OS X El Capitan is coming tomorrow, so if you're planning on updating your Mac right away it's best to be prepared. TMO's Melissa Holt has you covered with her list of what you need to do to make your upgrade go as smoothly as possible—and to make sure you have what you need should it go disastrously wrong.
