In terms of specs, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are almost identical. The main differences would be the camera, screen size, and the screen resolution, but other than that the hardware underneath the hood is the same: an A9 chipset with 2GB of RAM. However it seems that poor optimization might have led to some frame drop issues with the iPhone 6s Plus.
In a video posted by Erica Griffin, she demonstrates how the smaller iPhone 6s is a lot smoother as far as animations are concerned, versus the larger iPhone 6s Plus in which you will notice a bit of a lag and some frame drops. We should note that it’s only viewing them side-by-side that the differences are more apparent.
This means that chances are you might not have noticed this on your iPhone 6s Plus until we pointed it out. It’s not a crippling issue but we suppose in comparison to the smaller (and cheaper) iPhone 6s, some customers might be a bit annoyed. It is unclear as to why this is happening, but there seems to be a fix for it.
According to Griffin, one of the recommended fixes is to go to your Settings, General, Accessibility, Increase Contrast, select Reduce Transparency and it should be address that. It’s not a guaranteed fix but if you’d like to give it a shot, go ahead. In the meantime do check out the video above to see what we’re talking about.
