Apple did one of its big events this week during which, among other goodies, they announced the newest iPhones, the 6S and the 6S Plus. Among the new features are (significantly) better cameras; the rear camera is now 12 megapixels, up from 8MP in the 6 and 6 Plus, while the front camera is now 5MP, up from a measly 1.2MP. Other phones have even higher res cameras, like the 16MP rear camera on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the 8MP front camera on the LG G4.

What does all this mean? It means these phones are really going to capture every nook and cranny on your face, whether you like it or not. If you’ve been putting it off, it might really be time to give your face that bee venom treatment to smooth out of some of those wrinkles. But, hey, it’s up to you.
