Apple announces iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Apple recently announced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the biggest advancements in iPhone history, packing an all new redesign, better specs and iOS 8. More about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus after the jump.

For the first time iPhone is available in two new sizes: iPhone 6 features a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with 1334 x 750 resolution, providing 38 percent more viewing area than iPhone 5s, while iPhone 6 Plus features an even bigger 5.5-inch Retina HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, providing 88 percent more viewing area and nearly three times the pixels than iPhone 5s. The Retina HD displays offer advanced technologies including higher contrast for deeper blacks and dual-domain pixels for more accurate colors at wider viewing angles.

With second generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture, the all-new A8 chip offers faster performance and is more energy efficient, delivering higher sustained performance with great battery life. With Metal, a new graphics technology in iOS 8, developers can take performance of the A8 chip even further to bring console-class 3D games to iPhone. The A8 chip also includes a new, powerful Apple-designed image signal processor that enables advanced camera and video features.

Both models include the M8 motion coprocessor that gathers motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and the new barometer, which senses air pressure to provide relative elevation. The M8 motion coprocessor can continuously measure your motion data, even when the device is asleep, saving battery life for fitness apps that use the sensors all day.

The iSight camera gets even better with a new sensor featuring Focus Pixels for faster autofocus. The iPhone 6 Plus users will also benefit from optical image stabilization technology that compensates for hand shake in low light and works with iOS 8 to reduce subject motion. High-definition video on iPhone improves with faster frame rates up to 60fps for 1080p video and 240fps for slo-mo, as well as continuous autofocus, cinematic video stabilization and time-lapse video. The FaceTime HD camera now captures over 80 percent more light with a new sensor, larger f/2.2 aperture and advanced new features including burst mode and HDR video.

The new iPhones also support high-quality voice calls over LTE (VoLTE) as well as Wi-Fi calling. With support for up to 20 LTE wireless bands—more than any other smartphone in the world—the new models make it easier to experience high-speed networks around the world. Both iPhones also include 802.11ac Wi-Fi with speeds up to 433 Mbps and Bluetooth 4.0.

Pricing and Availability
The iPhone 6 will be available for the US starting at $199 – 16GB, $299 – 64GB, $399 – 128GB, while the iPhone 6 Plus will starts at $299 – 16GB, $399 – 64GB, $499 – 128GB for two year contracts. Pre-orders start at 12 and the phone will be available by the 19th, including places such as Hong Kong, where the prices end up being near to what we have here locally.
