    Then, tap on "General".
    At the bottom of the screen, there is a "Hardware Model" number. In this case, it's "N66AP". What that means is that this phone has the Samsung chip. There are two different types of chip manufacturers. The Samsung chip has, reportedly, a little shorter battery life. If you are using the iPhone 6s, "Hardware Model" will read "N71AP". The other slightly better chip, which is the TSMC processor, would read "N71MAP" on the iPhone 6s and "N66MAP" on the iPhone 6s Plus.
