The Release of the Bigger and Better iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
Apple formally announced the release of the iPhone 6 – the 8th generation of iPhone during a Cupertino event. For some, the draw of the common users to Apple devices is nearly profound. After seven whole years, it continues to retain and grows its steadfast following. The iPhone 6 is a representation of the all-inclusive overhauls of the iPhone family since the release of the iPhone 4, and it definitely goes a step further in many ways. The processor was clearly enhanced, the camera was speeded up and it is more efficient than ever, and most importantly, the battery has been expanded considerably to suppress some issues on the power use of the earlier models.
There is so much more that epitomize a quivering change for Apple; the upsurge screen resolution is one of the best helpful addition and the Apple Pay payment scheme, that is currently limited to US users as of the meantime, will be a great enhancement to the Smartphone payment world. The new larger screen will especially prevent iOS users from glancing on Smartphones like the Sony Xperia Z3 and the HTC One M8.
An overhaul on the design is needed and many iOS users hoped to get an indication of the iPad Air’s metallic and nearly ceramic shell that feels merely radiant in the hand.
The iPhone 6 boosts that idea to the next stage. The sharp edges were replaced by smooth and rounded sides making the device pleasant in the palm of your hand. The iPhone 6 feels so light but not as lightweight as the iPhone 5S. Apple unswervingly shows that they know how to make a well build handset and it’s happening once again with the latest iPhone 6.
The feeling is exceptional the moment you touch the iPhone 6, with its brilliant and clear screen to the elusive display curve hooked into the iPhone’s rounded frame. iPhone 6 will come with 4.7-inch display and the iPhone 6 Plus will have a 5.5-inch display. Both will carry 64-bit A8 chip and a matching overall design. The measurement of the iPhone 6 at 6.9mm is slightly thinner than the 7.1mm of the iPhone 6 Plus. But the concluding has three main distinctive factors: one is, the camera’s optical image stabilization, two is, it has an extended battery life and three is, it has landscape mode the same as the style of iPad that can show additional content on the screen. But even if the upcoming iPhone 6 Plus have optical image stabilization, both has some major enhancement on the camera such as an improved sensor and tone mapping, enhanced noise reduction and the all new Focus Pixel feature that will make the autofocus points more easier to select. The video has 240fps with an all-new slo-mo capability together with support for taking a video in 1080p at 60fps. Aside from that, the front-facing camera was also improved including the f/2.2 aperture that allows more light and the newest burst mode option. The primary camera is still 8-Megapixel.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will both have a Retina HD Display. The iPhone 6 will feature 1334×750 pixels while the latter will feature 1920×1080 pixels. Both will have a resemblance to the iPad, iPod touch and iPhone 5S. The buttons for adjusting volume is still placed on the left side but it is now the shape of a pill while the power button is on the right side for easier use when using one hand. For easy one-handed use, there is also a new feature called, ‘Reachability’ or a gesture for double-tapping the home button. It can help in moving items from top to the bottom of the screen.
Both iPhones will have a WiFi Calling features, an improved 802.11ac WiFi and a Voice over LTE or VoLTE. Another big change is the Apple Pay scheme. The iPhone now will feature the NFC or Near Field Communication for sending payments data in stores. There are over 200,000 merchants that are possible to accept Apple Pay including Walgreens, Groupon, Staples, and Target, McDonald’s, Macy’s, Subway and a lot more. However, this is only available in US’ Visa, American Express Plus Citi, MasterCard, Bank of America, Chase, Wells Fargo and Capital One.
