Apple have been producing iPhones since 2007 and over the years the phones have progressively become more durable, larger and more powerful. One of the stand out iPhones was released in 2015 - the iPhone 6s. Five years on, we take a look into the iPhone 6s again to see why it is still such a reliable device and still worth using in 2021. 

Although there is no single wow-factor feature to focus on, there are a variety of different smaller features that make the iPhone 6s stand out as a phone that you still should definitely consider as your next phone. Let's take a closer look at these features:

 

Compatible with iOS 14

One of the biggest appealing factors of the iPhone 6s in 2021, aside from its much lower price that the latest model, is that it is able to run the much anticipated iOS 14. This is a huge bonus as you are able to enjoy and benefit from the sleek new interface that comes with iOS 14 without having to purchase an iPhone 12. Along with the new interface, iOS 14 brings greater security for the iPhone 6s, better messaging features and a still unlocks full access to the App Store so you can experience and utilise all that is on offer. 

Headphone Jack

The iPhone 6s is the newest iPhone that still has a headphone jack as a key functionality. Undeniably, many people still miss the headphone jack and the ability too easily connect a standard pair of headphone or an aux cord. With all of the latest iPhones only being compatible with bluetooth earphones or the lightening adapter, listening to audio has never been more expensive. But, with the iPhone 6s you won't have to spend any extra on fancy headphones or adapters. Not only is the iPhone 6s cheaper to purchase in 2021 than any other late model iPhones, but it is also cheaper to maintain and use. 

Light & Easy to Hold

With the iPhone 6s being only 138mm in height and 67mm in width, it is the perfect size to fit into any hand. Also only weighing 142 grams makes it light and accessible, while maintaining a sleek appearance. As each iPhone progressively gets bigger and bigger, switching to and iPhone 6s in 2021 will still allow you to keep you phone in your pocket and not have to carry it around in your hand or a bag uncomfortably.

 

Metal Back

Unlike many of its predecessors and successors, the iPhone 6s has a metal back finish rather than the now popular glass back finish. This means the iPhone 6s is less likely to come to grief through the back cracking or scratching as the metal is far more durable the the glass rear casings. This can save you significant amounts of money as the newer glass backs now cost more and more as the process becomes more complex to replace them. The metal back finish also produces a premium look which is perfect for the latest trends in 2021. 

Conclusion:

The iPhone 6s is by far still an amazing phone on the market that is relevant and perfect for 2021. The iPhone 6s has plenty of colours to choose from, an amazing 12MP camera to take top quality photos and incorporates 3D Touch into its screen, but all at just a fraction of the price of the latest iPhone 12.
