If you have a new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, you may be itching to play with 3D Touch, the whole-screen implementation of Force Touch that comes in the new devices. We put together a list of ten apps to make it easy for you to check it out.
iPhone 6s shipped on Friday, and the first thing we did (after setting up our new devices, of course) was test out iPhone 6 cases to make sure they fit. The iPhone 6s is 0.2 mm thicker than the iPhone 6—case manufacturers have been quick to say iPhone 6 cases will fit iPhone 6s, but we wanted to test it for ourselves.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere teased an upcoming promotional offer for iPhone 6s that would let some customers get Apple's new newest device for as little as $5 per month. Part of the company's JUMP on Demand plan, Mr. Legere tweeted that users who turn in an iPhone 6 or other device can get an iPhone 6s for $5, $10, or $15 per month.
Along with iOS 9, Apple released watchOS 2.0 for the Apple Watch on Monday following an unexpected delay that prevented its rollout along side iOS 9 last week. The update improves overall watch performance, and adds support for native third-party apps.
Along with iOS 9, Apple released iTunes 12.3 on Wednesday. The update for the media management and streaming music app added two-factor authentication support for Apple IDs, along with iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan support.
Earlier today Apple sent notes to various outlets announcing that watchOS 2 would not be released today due to a last-minute bug they found. Developer James Thomson took to Twitter to say that he might well have been the one to find the bug.
Fire up your Internet because iOS 9 is officially available. The update is finally out of beta testing and is ready for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
A report from 451 Research said that 87 percent of Apple Watch customers are very or somewhat satisfied. Key likes include notifications and health and fitness monitoring. Key dislikes include dissatisfaction with battery life and the reliance on the iPhone.
The Apple Store is back online for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus preorders, though a variety of quirks have affected some users. Despite such issues, many people have successfully booked their preorder for delivery or pick up on September 25th, 2015.
With iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus upgrade frenzy kicking of, we put together a comparison chart for prices being paid by the major trade-in programs out there. Our chart includes Apple, Gazelle, Amazon, iCracked, Best Buy, and NextWorth. [Updated with prices from Apple and additonal details on payments from Gazelle and Amazon.]
