The Apple iPhone 6 is Here!
Apple unveiled two new iPhones today, a 4.7″ model and a 5.5″ model. Both will be released on September 19th with pre-orders starting on September 12. Regardless of what features it has, the iPhone 6 will undoubtedly be a huge success for Apple. But who really cares about that? Let’s get down to what everyone wants to know, specs.
The iPhone has been slowing growing over time, but the iPhone 6 has been significantly increased in size. Apple has implemented a 4.7-inch display on the iPhone 6 that features a 1334 x 750 display at 326 pixels-per-inch while the iPhone 6 Plus features a 1920 x 1080 display at 401 ppi. The iPhone 6 is said to have more than 1 million pixels, while the iPhone 6 Plus is said to have 2 million pixels.
Apple is sticking with a 8MP sensor, but the sensor is all-new, and they’ve added faster focus, and “digital” image stabilization. Exclusive to the iPhone 6 Plus is an optical image stabilization system. Looks like iPhone will continue to reign supreme in the photography category with this new phone.
The iPhone 6 comes with Apple’s latest version of iOS. In iOS 8 they’ve added many new features. The keyboard gives “QuickType” word suggestions, and you can use 3rd-party keyboards. Also added “Hey Siri” command for always-listening support, widgets in the Notification Center for 3rd-party apps, and actionable notifications. Some of these features have been present on other operating systems for a while, now Apple is finally catching up.
The hardware on this phone is awesome. It should be, if you believe the iPhone is the ultimate premium device. The design of the iPhone is a status symbol to many people. The chassis is 6.9 mm thin for the iPhone 6 and 7.1 mm for the iPhone 6 Plus, very thin. The device also comes with a next-generation M8 motion coprocessor which can now estimate distance and elevation changes with a new barometer, which is one of the coolest features.
The iPhone 6 will get 50 hours of battery life for audio, 11 hours for video, 11 hours for WiFi browsing and 10 hours for LTE browsing. The bigger body will allow the iPhone 6 Plus will get 80 hours of battery life for audio, 14 hours for video, and 12 hours for Wi-Fi and LTE browsing. The iPhone 6 now also includes Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) technology, including 20 LTE band, as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi, which delivers 3x faster Wi-Fi and support for Wi-Fi calling.
So the question really is, how soon will you be upgrading?
