There are 3 killer features in the new iPhone 6S

The new iPhone 6S may look the same on the outside, but there are a lot of new tricks on the inside.

After spending a few minutes with the iPhone 6S following Apple’s big event Wednesday, three features stood out the most: 3D Touch, Live Photos, and the new camera.

Here’s a quick look at each.

This is the iPhone 6S. It looks the same as last year's iPhone 6.

But it has a new feature called 3D Touch, which can detect how hard you press down on the screen.

For example, when you press down hard on the Phone app icon, you get a list of recent contacts.

Same with Messages. You also get a prompt to jump in and write a new message to someone.

It can also shoot 4K video, which is twice the resolution as normal HD video. It looks great.

By default, every photo you take becomes a Live Photo. If you press down on a photo, it animates.

The camera automatically captures a few moments before you snap a photo.
