iPhone6: Review, Features and Specs – Everything you need to know

The iPhone 6 isn’t simply bigger — it’s better in every way. Larger, yet dramatically thinner. More powerful, but remarkably power efficient. With a smooth metal surface that seamlessly meets the new Retina HD display. It’s one continuous form where hardware and software function in perfect unison, creating a new generation of iPhone that’s better by any measure.

iPhone6, iPhone 6 Plus

Apple recently introduced the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. The new iPhone could be one of the most pivotal devices in the Cupertino brand’s history – with the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C simple updates to previous models, there’s a lot of pressure heaped on the iPhone 6.

The iPhone 6 pushes that idea to the next level, losing the sharp edges in favour of sleek and rounded sides that make the device much more pleasing in the palm. It just feels so thin, but doesn’t have the overly-lightweight feeling of the iPhone 5S.

No longer. Now, Apple has created two larger iPhones, one big, the other even bigger: the iPhone 6 sports a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus goes full “phablet” with a 5.5-inch display. Both of the new iPhones boast flatter designs, ship with somewhat faster A8 processors, slightly improved cameras, speedier Wi-Fi and LTE, better voice quality if you’re using voice-over-LTE, and more onboard storage.

The larger screen is certainly an improvement on the previous models – while I think 4.7-inches is going to be a tiny bit small for those that have lusted after their friends’ Galaxy S5 devices with the 5.2-inch screen, it’s still a very good size for one hand.

iPhone at its largest. And thinnest.

Developing an iPhone with a larger, more advanced display meant pushing the edge of design. From the seamless transition of glass and metal to the streamlined profile, every detail was carefully considered to enhance your experience. So while its display is larger, iPhone 6 feels just right.

Not just a bigger display. A better display.

It’s one thing to make a bigger display. It’s something else entirely to make a bigger Multi-Touch display with brilliant colours and higher contrast at even wider viewing angles. But that’s exactly what we did with the new Retina HD display.

Hugely powerful. Enormously efficient.

Built on 64-bit desktop-class architecture, the new A8 chip delivers more power, even while driving a larger display. The M8 motion coprocessor efficiently gathers data from advanced sensors and a new barometer. And with increased battery life, iPhone 6 lets you do more, for longer than ever.

The camera that changed photos now does the same for video.

More people take more photos with iPhone than with any other camera. And now the iSight camera has a new sensor with Focus Pixels and new video features, like 1080p HD at 60 fps, slo-mo at 240 fps, and time-lapse video mode. So you’ll have more reasons to capture more moments on video too.

Faster wireless. Far and wide.

iPhone 6 supports fast wireless technologies and connects to networks all over the world. And with advanced Wi-Fi, you’ll experience incredibly fast wireless speeds.

Security. Right at your fingertip.

The breakthrough Touch ID technology lets you securely access your iPhone with the perfect password: your fingerprint. You can also use it to approve purchases from iTunes and the App Store without having to enter your password.

The biggest iOS release ever.

iOS 8 is our most advanced mobile operating system. And with incredible new capabilities and features designed to make the most of a larger display, iOS 8 doesn’t just work seamlessly with iPhone 6. It makes every experience feel bigger and better.

The good:

A bigger, crisp display, improved LTE and Wi-Fi speeds, better camera autofocus, bumped-up storage capacities to 128GB at the top end, and NFC Apple Pay mobile wallet features on the horizon.

The bad:

In early tests, the iPhone 6′s battery doesn’t fare any better than last year’s model. Some Android phones fit an even-larger 5-inch screen into the same size frame. It lacks the optical image stabilization of the bigger, more expensive 6 Plus.
