The innovative iPhone 6 was launched by Apple Inc. last year in September. Since then, it has witnessed an unprecedented demand and has broken sales records across the world. The phone has a larger screen than it’s predecessor and a completely new design with an ultra thin body and rounded corners. iPhone 6 has been incorporated with faster processors, better cameras as well as the Apple’s payment system.
The iPhone 6 measures 6.9mm and has a longer battery life as compared to the iPhone 5. An A8 chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture is what this phone has been assembled onto. There’s also a new M8 motion coprocessor apart from the A8, which is the successor to the M7 motion coprocessor introduced in the iPhone 5s. It is responsible for measuring data from the accelerometer, compass, and gyroscope, and the barometer.
As the smartphone market continues to scale up with constantly increasing the screen size, Apple has been late in this regard. Perhaps a little too late with the 4.7 inch screen? Not at all as it’s just fashionably late and the global demand for the iPhone 6 reinforces this notion.
The iPhone 6 includes prominent antenna bands on the back enclosure and has the thinnest Retina HD screen. This results in bright, sharp displays for better outdoor viewing. It has a 4.7-inch display with a “2x” resolution of 1334 x 740 (326 ppi).
Moving onto the specifications and other features; the iPhone 6 is available in 16, 64 and 128 GB flash memory variants. The phone has a memory of 1GB RAM which sounds a little sceptical considering the processing requirements and the norm of Android phones nowadays.
The primary camera is of 8 megapixels, but the lens and sensors have been worked-upon for those low-light shots and colour accuracy. 4K video recording is not supported, a fact that Apple still seems to be missing upon and that has been almost mastered by rival cos. Thin, light and super easy to handle, the iPhone 6 has a 1.2 megapixel selfie snapper. The camera’s are one of the USP’s of the Brand and the lenses never disappoint, even in low-light conditions. The result is always unshaken, un-stirred and razor sharp photos. Video recording has been improved and 1080p HD recording at 60fps is now a possibility. There’s also a new 240 fps slo-mo mode, and time-lapse video, which was introduced with the iOS 8.
Like the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 6 also offers the Touch ID, Apple’s fingerprint-based security system. The iOS 8 offers an impeccable user experience and with this the Touch ID will become even more powerful.
