With the upgraded camera on Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus being one of the standout features, Apple has been promoting a number of publications posting images galleries setup and shot on the new iPhone leading up to tomorrow’s launch. First we saw photos from the runways at New York Fashion Week via Vogue, followed by some shots from a recent MLB game published by Sports Illustrated.

The images above and below from Leong’s piece in National Geographic were all shot on the iPhone 6s Plus while some shots used a tripod and/or Cogitap’s Slow Shutter Cam app. The photos were likely shot on the iPhone 6s Plus rather than the 6s due to the larger model’s optical image stabilization feature that isn’t present on the smaller iPhone. Otherwise, both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus sport the same upgraded camera specs including a new 12-megapixel iSight camera with 1.22µ pixels, improved auto focus, and other software enhancements with iOS 9.
