The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus were debuted by Apple today to a very excited fan base.
The new iPhones are bigger, as was rumored, now with the option of a 4.7 or 5.5 inch screen.
These larger screens pack impressive resolutions of 1334 x 750 and 1920 x 1080 respectively.
But size is not the only thing that the new iPhones can boast about.
CEO Tim Cook lauded the devices as “the biggest advancement in the history of iPhone” and he doesn’t seem to have been yanking chains.
The new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus now have lots of new features that make it stand out in a sea of smartphones. Some of the new features are beyond impressive.
For example, the 5.5 inch display on the new iPhone 6 Plus now has the capability to support split-pane views when held in landscape position.
Both models have a new eight megapixel camera with new technology to help capture the best shot possible. The iPhone 6 has software-based image stabilizing and the iPhone 6 Plus takes it a step further with optical image stabilization.
The stabilization, along with the new gyroscope and the M8 processor, will allow higher quality pictures to be taken in low-light situations.
Also a great new feature on the new iPhones is the implementation of Near Field Technology which will be tied to a new service called Apple Pay. So now, if you have a new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you can pay with your phone and leave your cards at home!
That’s pretty cool, but admittedly a little scary, for those of us that are paranoid about information security.
However, according to Apple’s senior vice president of internet services and software, the transactions will take place between users and the place where they’re making payments and Apple won’t collect the data about actual purchases.
Another fun feature are the new graphics that are 20 percent faster.
Tons of cool new features for the new iPhones! The new iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus come in gold, silver or space gray, just like its predecessor. iPhone 6 is priced at $199 for 16 GB, $299 for 32 GB and $399 for 64 GB with a two-year contract.
The iPhone 6 Plus begins a little higher at $299, $399 and $499 at the same storage options and with the two-year contract.
It’s a great day for Apple lovers!
