[* black] This year's camera offers a substantial spec jump from the [guide|29213|6|stepid=69250], including the first resolution increase since the iPhone 4S.
[* black] 50% more focus pixels means faster, more accurate autofocus without a drop in quality.
[* black] The iSight camera also sports the ability to shoot 4K video, that's 8 million pixels per frame! Holy smokes!
[* black] UsuallyUsually, an increase in pixel density means a decrease in overall quality due to crosstalk from competing photodiodes, but the iSight camera takes advantage of some cool technologies to mitigate that issue.

[* icon_note] There are light-proof trenches etched between the sensor's photodiodes, a process called [http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/gear/a17277/iphone-6s-camera-deep-trench-isolation/|Deep Trench Isolation], to compensate for leakage between densely-packed pixels.
