Why does my Iphone6s taking better pics than my ZS40 on IA?

I am a “point and shoot” Iphone picture & video taker. I’ve just purchased a used ZS40 and now done a series of comparison tripod shots with my Iphone 6s with the camera’s setting on “Intelligent Auto.” I’m viewing/comparing all pictures on the same laptop screen. Of course, for super zoom shots, the camera is far superior. But the Iphone 6s consistently produces more pleasing shots for non-zoom.  Bluer skies, richer colors, more legible street signs, less glare in bright sunlight. I’m very surprised. Even on auto settings, shouldn’t the ZS40 put the Iphone 6s to shame? If not, if I only intend to point and shoot, is there any benefit to using the camera for non-zoom?
