Even if you weren’t waiting with baited breath for news of the new iPhone, you were at least a little bit intrigued, right? I’m an iPhone user and have been for a while but there’s one thing that always bugged me, the size. Well, Apple have fixed that. The new standard iPhone 6 will have a 4.7″ screen (compared to the 4″ screen on the iPhone 5S) but there will also be an iPhone 6 Plus with a whopping 5.5″ screen.
This is good news for people like me who spend much of their life tethered to their phone for work. Typing on my small iPhone 5 screen is tough sometimes. Not only do we get a good screen size but the phone will be super thin too, it might be big but it won’t be bulky.
The techy stuff
The iPhone 6 has an A8, 64-bit second generation processor and a next-gen M8 motion coprocessor too. It looks like it’ll stick with the 1GB RAM.
Unfortunately, there will still only be a 8MP rear camera, which puts this way behind some of the similar phones on the market (in fact it’s even behind older phones too). It’s a different camera to the iPhone 5, though. It’ll have a new wide angle iSight lens, true tone flash, f/2.2 aperture, better noise reduction and a faster autofocus. This should make the camera much better even with the same megapixels. The new image signal processor built into the A8 chip should also improve the way the iPhone 6 handles images.
The front-facing camera has received a lot more attention (good news, selfie-fans!). It let’s in up to 81% more light, which it was definitely in need of. This makes photos and face-time,much more flattering.
A TechRadar iPhone 6 review also said that it looks like the glass has been upgraded. This means that the phone will withstand a few more bumps than its predecessors.
