Apple iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus : What's New ?

#1 Postby Shivani » Wed Sep 10, 2014 1:15 pm

Apple has announced the iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus both with bigger screen sizes.So, from now forget about universal thought about iPhone that screen size can't be more than 4 inches.Apple is going big and the new iPhone 6 is 4.7-inch device, while the iPhone 6 Plus is a 5.5-inch device.


But now the question is its just the screen size for which you are going to pay extra or the company has also added something more..

Apple has a long story of upgrading each new device more thinner than the previous one & this time also the same thing has been done both devices have..Bigger screens, sharper displays and thinner than the iPhone 5s.iPhone 6 Plus is only 7.1 mm thick, iPhone 6 is only 6.9 mm thick while the iPhone 5s was 7.6mm thick. So the new iPhones are slightly thinner when you compare the numbers.

iPhone 6 Plus has a screen resolution of 1920-by-1080-pixel resolution at 401 ppi, while the iPhone 6 has a 1334-by-750-pixel resolution at 326 ppi. Do note that the pixel density in iPhone 6 is the same as the iPhone 5s which had lesser pixels but a 326 ppi density. Both the phones have dramatically higher 1400:1 and 1300:1 contrast ratios, respectively, compared to iPhone 5s which had a 800:1 contrast ratio.

Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus come with the A8 processor which is a 64-bit processor. Apple claims that the A8 chip comes with 2 billion transistors, making it 25 percent faster for any ordinary computing task and 50 percent faster for graphics.

While coming to camera, Apple is sticking to the 8 megapixel camera. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus camera have f/2.2 aperture like the iPhone 5s did but only the iPhone 6 Plus comes with Optical Image Stabilisation. iPhone 6 has digital image stabilisation. Like with the iPhone 5s, they both have dual flash or as Apple calls it True Tone flash.

A brand new feature has also been added in these devices ...Apple Pay Unlike the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus come with an NFC chip and will support Apple’s new Apple Pay mobile wallet system. Apple Pay stores all your credit/debit card information and you can just swipe the mobile phone at stores that are accepting it.

Now, you might be wondering that how much this all would cost to you..The new iPhone 6 will start at the same price of existing iPhones at $199 for US customers while the iPhone 6 Plus will be at $299 with a two-year contract. An India price has not been announced as yet, although it’s coming on 17 October. The contract free version of the iPhone 6 starts at $649 and iPhone 6 Plus starts at $749 (for 16 GB version). That’s close to Rs 40,000 and Rs 45,000 for the two versions without taxes.
