iPhone 6 & 6 Plus

Get the ultimate iDevice!

Now that the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus are available, we have seen the powerful, faster processor, larger curved screen, better camera and an aluminum case that has a beautiful sleek body design with rounded corners and tons of feature updates like iSight, Touch ID, Metal and more.

They come in Gold, Silver and Space Gray with 16, 64 and 128 GB capacities.

The upgrades keep going on and on!
Both models have the same 64-bit A8 chip, run iOS 8 and the same general design. The iPhone 6 Plus is larger to fit the extra features.

Both devices include prominent antenna bands on the back enclosure and volume buttons on the left side of the iDevices are now pill shaped and the power button is located on the right side, for easy one-handed use.
Use that one-hand to secure your device, well your fingertip atleast. Use the breakthrough Touch ID technology to access your phone, it’s the perfect password. You can also approve purchases from iTunes, iBooks or the App Store without having to enter a password. Enroll multiple fingerprints to unlock your iDevice.

The camera lens protrudes from the rear and the iSight upgrades come in form of sensors, improved tone mapping, better noise reduction and new “Focus Pixel” technology, which improves the devices ability to select autofocus points.
iPhone 6 Plus also gets Optical Image Stabilization, longer battery life and an iPad-style landscape mode.

For videos, there’s a new 240fps slo-mo option, along with support for shooting in 1080p at 60fps. The front facing camera was also upgraded, with an f/2.2 aperture that lets in more light and new burst mode capabilities.

An impressive new “Retina HD Display” can be found on both and uses “ion-strengthened” glass with improved polarized (for better outdoor viewing), a photo aligned IPS liquid crystal display, and a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.
Both phones offer better, higher contrast, better brightness, and improved white balance. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch display with a “2x” resolution of the 1334 x 740 (316 ppi) while the iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch “3x” resolution of 1920 x 1080 (401 ppi).

Use the “Reachability”, gesture with a double tap to the home button, which moves the items from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen for quick access.

More features? We got you covered!
The iPhone 6 & 6 Plus also have WiFi calling support, faster 802.11.ac WiFi, and support for Voice over LTE (VoLTE).

Open an app or game in half the time with the new A8 chip and it is even 50% more energy efficient, all while powering a bigger device. Metal technology has also been introduced which is designed to allow the CPU and graphical performance faster speeds to deliver enhanced effects and more detailed graphics.

Apple Pay is like most other payments services on the web, yet better, as it also uses the new NFC chip to allow you to make contactless payments. This makes it so you don’t have to touch any keypad, hand anyone your credit card, just hold your iDevice to the terminal and you’ve made your payment. It can be used in the same fashion to make online purchases instead of typing in a password.
Right now only Apple Pay uses the Touch ID technology, but is going to offer third-party app support soon.
