iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus Launched in India to an Enthusiastic Response

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus launched in India on Friday with eager customers queuing up at midnight outside Apple retailers across cities like Mumbai and Delhi to be amongst the first to get their hands on Apple's newest smartphones.

"Thanks to all our customers in India who queued at midnight for the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus!" Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted. Pre-bookings have been open for the last few days, though there are no official numbers on how many people have pre-ordered the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in India.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus come with new 3D touch, which is a pressure sensitive screen that lets you perform different actions dependent on the amount of pressure you put. For example, you can hard press to preview content, while tap normally to go view it as usual.
