Apple has unveiled its latest flagship smartphones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It is an incremental design to last year’s models, but Apple have managed to add enough new features to these new iPhones to make them compelling for a huge proportion of its fans. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and the 10th anniversary iPhone X have now been unveiled for the 2017 iteration of the smartphone.
Where to Buy iPhone 6
Apple has finally gone for a bigger screen. No-matter which of the two new iPhones you choose, you will be getting something a lot bigger than the 4.0-inch display of the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C. The iPhone 6 features a 4.7-inch Retina display, while the iPhone 6 Plus is more of a phablet with a 5.5-inch Retina HD display.
Despite offering a larger screen, the iPhone 6 offers the same Retina 326 pixel per inch of the 5S with 750 x 1,334 pixels resolution. However, the iPhone 6 Plus does better with a crispier 401 ppi with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution that Apple calls Retina HD.

The camera is essentially the same at 8 megapixels, though some improvements have been added for better and faster photos. However, the iPhone 6 Plus does one better over the iPhone 6 with Optical Image Stabilisation built into its camera.
The new iPhones are coming with a new processor, the Apple A8 chip. The A8 is a 64-bit chip like the A7, but promises 50% faster graphics and 25% faster processor, which should make iPhone 6 run more smoothly.
Like last-year’s TouchID fingerprint scanning feature, one of the most outstanding feature of the iPhone 6 is its support of NFC and the incorporation of the Apple Pay mobile payment service, which will enable you make payments at local stores and services with just a tap. Apple Pay is limited to the United States for now with over 220,000 merchants already on board.
