While the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus don’t officially go on sale until this Friday, September 25, Apple appears to have allowed a few publications to take the device’s new camera for test drives ahead of an official public launch and full reviews. Late last week we posted images from Vogue who enlisted a photographer to shoot New York Fashion Week on the iPhone 6s Plus.

There’s one likely reason these early photo galleries are using the iPhone 6s Plus and not the iPhone 6s. The larger 6s Plus model includes one notable camera feature that isn’t present on the 6s: Optical image stabilization. Otherwise, both of the devices sport the same upgraded camera specs including a new 12-megapixel iSight camera with 1.22µ pixels, an improved auto focus, and other enhancements on the software side.

Sports Illustrated doesn’t mention if the images have been touched up after being shot on the iPhone 6s Plus. You can check out its full gallery here and the images from the Vogue photo shoot at New York Fashion Week here.
