What can you say about any new iPhone? Most people are already decided about whether they're going to buy the new model before it's even announced - but that hasn't stopped us giving it a thoroughly good going over.

The good points are the same as usual: a hugely powerful phone, a great camera and the new 3D Touch interface is genuinely useful, and will only continue to get better as time goes on.

The chassis is identical to the previous iPhone 6, which will irk some and might force them to wait for the iPhone 7, but it's still well-designed. The battery life is actually a little shorter (to fit in the motor for the 3D Touch method) and is the the biggest issue with the phone.

That said, it's still a brilliant iPhone, the phone that loads of users are desperate to get their hands on, and Apple's not done any harm at all with this upgraded model.

Black Friday iPhone 6S deal:

iPhone 6S 64GB Gold | 4G | £225 £125 upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 6GB data | £31pm

Using the voucher code BLACKFRI64 you can wipe £100 off the upfront price of the superior 64GB version of the iPhone 6S and pay £125 up front instead of £225. It comes on a pretty exciting contract too. It'll cost you £31 per month on a Vodafone 4G plan, and for that you'll get unlimited calls and texts and 6GB data. That's the same monthly price as last week's 3GB O2 mega deal – the only difference is it's £50 more up front and for that you get double the data – 6GB instead of 3GB. Plus, because it's Vodafone, you'll get unlimited data for the first two months!
