Apple reveals the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Apple's event is over and matched the number of iPhones from last year – the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus finally brought the long-awaited screen boost, but that's certainly not all there's to them. There was another device on stage too - the Apple Watch smart wearable.

The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is not only the larger, but also the more premium new smartphone. It offers a 5.5" screen of 1080p resolution, superior battery life and optical image stabilization as its exclusive new features. Its price starts at the higher $299 on contract in the US though and €800 SIM free in Europe.

The smaller Apple iPhone 6 comes with a 4.7" screen of 750 x 1,334 pixels and lacks OIS, while its battery endurance is roughly equal to that of the iPhone 5s. Its price is lower tough - starting at $199 on contract in the US and €699 commitment-free in Europe.

Both new iPhones come with a new A8 chipset with M8 motion co-processor and Ion-strengthened glass over their screens that curves towards the edges. They also have an improved connectivity department with 20-band LTE support (maxing out at 150Mbps) and Wi-Fi ac support.

Moving on to the "One more thing" of the press conference. The Apple Watch didn't quite deliver on the promises that it will be the prettiest watch on the market and with Tim Cook mentioning nothing on the battery life. However, it does come with a pretty neat user interface and offers two sizes and three versions with different straps, so you can easily customize it to your liking.

Apple also made a few software announcements yesterday night. First the company mentioned that its App store has reached 1.3 million apps. It also said that it will be releasing its latest iOS 8 OS version to compatible iDevices on September 17 and finally it unveiled its Apple Pay service for wireless payments that will be available on the iPhone 6 duo.
