Apple has announced the release of the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, with many new exquisite features that the regular iPhone 6 and 6 Plus did not include.
The new device includes four microphones for improved video quality, along with a higher megapixel front-facing camera for better quality selfies. There is also a new color introduced to the sleek iPhone style. The color options consist of rose-gold, silver, gold, and space-gray.
In addition to design, a stronger glass screen is now in place to reduce screen cracking or scratching. The 6S will also have a 7000 series aluminum casing, the strongest material ever used for an iPhone. “There isn’t much of a difference that I noticed, except it’s 3D now.” Junior, Stephen Tierney said.
For those who spend a lot of time on the internet, the iPhone 6S now has a feature to connect to WiFi networks twice as fast as before. “It’s a lot faster, and force touch allows you to now peek into files without opening them,” Mr. Smith said. “I wouldn’t switch to any other phone.”
Users now have the ability to take live photos that piece together like an animated GIF video. There are also a few exciting announcements for emoji emoticon users.
The commonly used “emoji” included in the iPhone keyboard now includes a taco, unicorn, hotdog, and many other anticipated emoticons. The new phones were released September 25, 2015.

It’s about that time of year again, when everyone must decide whether to buy a costume and go trick-or-treating or stay at home and watch scary movies.
Many people were brought up to think that they should stop trick or treating at age 12, but not all follow that rule.
Around Red Lion, age doesn’t really matter as long as you’re acting appropriate and mature. “Some municipalities are strict and require you to stop after you’ve gotten out of elementary school,” Officer Greenly said.
A lot of people worry that teens will ruin the holiday because of a select few who can’t control themselves. In some places, cities have gone so far as to ban children over the age of 12 from trick-or treating.
“I still go, and I’m going to be Anne Frank this year because I look like her,” said junior Alexis Ahern.
At Red Lion, fifteen out of twenty-five students said they don’t go trick or treating anymore and that they either stopped when they were younger or just recently stopped in the past year. Ten out of twenty-five students said they still go out in their costumes, but not necessarily for their fun.
“I only go because I go with my sister,” said junior Jack Taylor. Some students don’t want to give up part of their childhood.
Everyone has grown to love it and it’s hard to let go of something where you get to dress up in your favorite superhero or princess costume.
