Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

The curtain has been pulled back on what Apple is calling the “biggest advancement in the history of the iPhone”— the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Both phones are significantly bigger than previous iPhones, with smooth curves, new “Retina HD” screens, and improved cameras.

They feature a continuous seamless design, with no distinct edges and ion-strengthened cover glass that curves around the sides to meet the anodized aluminum enclosure. Not sure about making the leap to such a big phone? Apple is touting the new one-handed mode that lets you bring everything down to the lower half of the screen.

The familiar home button is still at the bottom, while the power button is on the right and the volume rockers are on the left, and they’re both powered by the A8 chip (said to be 25% faster than the A7) with 2 billion transistors and 64-bit support. Both phones will run iOS 8.

The iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch screen with 1334×750 resolution, and is now slimmed down to just 6.9mm thick, while the iPhone 6 Plus has a whopping 5.5-inch screen and a 1920×1080 resolution.

On the camera front, Apple says both phones will feature the new 8MP iSight camera, with improved face detection, better lighting, and slo-mo capabilities, while optical image stabilization will help users keep a steady hand on the 6 Plus.

With 802.11ac, iPhone 6 Wi-Fi speeds promise to be up to three times faster than the iPhone 5s. Other features include faster LTE performance and the very late-to-the-party Wi-Fi calling.

Both phones go on sale in the U.S. on September 19, with the iPhone 6 starting at $199 for the 16GB version, and the iPhone 6 Plus starting at $299 for the 16GB model. Choose from gold, silver, or “space gray.” [Purchase]
