Apple officially announced newest larger phones on Tuesday, the iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch display and iPhone 6 Plus with 5.5-inch display, both of which come in gold, silver, and space gray. The iPhone 6 serves as a successor to the iPhone 5S.
Apple iPhone 6 feature curved glass “retina HD” displays, which will make it easier to swipe from the edges of the display.
iPhone 6 features a 4.7-inch display with a 1334×750 resolution, density of 326 pixels-per-inch. More than 1 million pixels are spaced across the display, which is 38% more pixels than the iPhone 5s display.
iPhone 6 has a new 8-megapixel iSight camera sporting a f/2.2 aperture. The new photo sensor has what’s called “phase detection focus” which Apple says will make it’s autofocus faster, improve skin tones, recognise faces faster and take better macro photos, which is typically found in high-end DSLR cameras.
The new phones will shoot 1080p video at 30 frames-per-second or 60 frames-per-second, and capture slo-mo video at 120 frames-per-second or 240 frames-per-second. There’s also a time lapse feature and new continuous autofoucs for video.
The from camera also has improved face detection and a new burst mode for selfies, along with single-shot HDR photos and HDR video.
Apple says the iPhone 6 will have 10 days of standby battery life and up to 10 hours of web browsing battery life, at least 50% more efficient, and can handle 50 hours of audio and 11 hours of video.
The iPhone 6 have the new Apple A8 system-on-a-chip inside. This 64-bit chipset is has 2 billion transistors inside, up from 1 billion in the A7, and the A8 is 13% smaller than the A7 chip. Apple says this all adds up to 25% faster CPU performance and up to 50% faster graphics performance when compared with the 5s. The A8 is also promised to be 50% more energy efficient than the A7.
