iPhone 6: Apple Just Announced Two New Smartphones

Apple just announced (this Australian AEST morning) its newest smartphones: two different versions of the iPhone 6. They’re both bigger, extremely thin and very beautiful.

iPhone 6’s rumours have been spinning for months about the features and what it looks like. Today we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief because we’ve got all the details for you.

Both new iPhones, which will be available in gold, white and "space grey," go on sale in Australia, US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico and Singapore on September 19 with preorders beginning on Friday. More countries to follow soon and it will be available in 115 countries by the end of the year.

The iPhone 6 features a brand-new physical design, with curved glass sides. 

Apple has moved the power button on both iPhones to the side, so it’s easier to reach. The phones also include a one-handed mode that enables users to swipe between windows. The new phones are also 50 percent faster than the original generation.

iPhone 6

First up is the iPhone 6, the design is 6.9 millimetres thin, which compares to 7.6 mm for the previous generation, the iPhone 5S. The phone’s screen has one million pixels and measures 4.7 inches. The home screen of the iPhone 6 can work horizontally too, so it’s caught up to its Android counterparts. It is powered by a new chip, the A8 processor, which Apple says is 50 times faster than the chip in the original iPhone.! So it definitely packs a punch.

The battery life has seen a great increase too for the iPhone 6, up to 50 minutes for audio from the 40 minutes available on the iPhone 5s. The talk time has increased too, on 3G talk it’s up from the iPhone 5s 10 minutes to 14 minutes on the iPhone 6.

iPhone 6 Plus

Next up is the “bigger” iPhone 6, or iPhone Plus. The iPhone 6 Plus, Apple's first foray into phablet territory, will have a 5.5-inch display and Apple's new A8 processor.

The iPhone 6 Plus’s screen has two million pixels. Unique to the 6 Plus, though, is optical image stabilisation, an improvement over the digital stabilisation of the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 Plus will also be available in 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB varieties

Apple’s tremendously proud of its latest achievement. In a statement, CEO Tim Cook said,

We are launching the biggest advancement in the history of iPhone…It is truly the most beautiful phone you have ever seen.

With projected sales of 6.5 million units, up from 5.4 million units for the 5s and the million for the iPhone 5, it’s definitely going to be a game changer for Apple lovers.
