A new iPhone release is always an exciting event and this year’s releases were no exception to that. With the iPhone 6 Apple really needed to wow the crowds, after a couple of less then stellar releases in the last few years. But wowed us they have, the iPhone 6 is everything that we were promised and more, and it’s sure to be a huge hit on the mobile market.
What sort of things should you be eagerly awaiting? The bigger and better screen is probably the hugest selling point of this upgrade, but there’s plenty more power too, not to mention a new operating system and tons of other new features. The iPhone 6 is a stunning little device, and more than worth it’s price tag.
Let’s start with the design. Apple are famous for their design credentials, but the iPhone 6 is a little different. The older iPhone models had blunt edges and sharp lines, but the 6 is all about tapering, smooth curves. It’s thin and light, and has a true premium quality feel to it, thanks to that full metal build.
On the inside, there’s a full spectrum of upgrades, and performance on the iPhone 6 is going to be better than on any other Apple model before it. You’re getting speed, power and of course a bigger screen to go along with those, and all these things make the iPhone 6 a perfect upgrade for the discerning customer.
We expect all iPhones to be big sellers, they’re certainly popular with the public. But the iPhone 6 we suspect is going to sell even better than usual, simply because it’s such a huge step up from last year’s iPhone 5S model. The 6 proves that Apple really do still have what it takes to compete at the top of the mobile market.
For those iOS fans that have been jealously comparing their iPhone screens with big display Androids, the iPhone 6 is going to come as somewhat of a relief. Apple have upped the screen size to a good 4.7 inches. Now, that doesn’t compete with the five and more inch displays that we’re often seeing these days, but it does mean that you can easily use the 6 one handed and still get a great viewing experience as well.
As you’d expect to see, the display on the iPhone 6 is an Apple Retina HD display, and that’s going to mean that you get some of the best colour reproduction out there. Viewing angles are great on Retina too. What about pixel resolution? The 6 has 730 x 1334, working out to around 326 PPI, so there’s fantastic definition and clear, sharp pictures.
The fact that Apple have increased screen size is going to be one of the biggest selling points for the new iPhone 6, and the addition of more resolution on that Retina display does mean that the newest iPhone provides for an awesome viewing experience.
What kind of engine is humming along behind that screen? Apple are always a bit shady about CPU specs, but from benchmarks it seems that the iPhone 6 is running a dual core 1.4 GHz processor alongside 1 GB of RAM. There’s an Apple A8 chip set along with that too. Speeds? Not bad, not the fastest on the market, but for most kinds of users the iPhone 6 is going to be snappy and responsive, especially if you’re coming from an older model iPhone.
Of course, this is an Apple, so it’s got to be running iOS, but the iPhone 6 is running the newest version out of the box, meaning iOS 8. If anything, 8 is even more intuitive and easier to use than any other iOS version, and it’s got tons of special features thrown in.
The new native keyboard that Apple have added is super smart, not only does it predict text but it also learns your writing patterns to different people and inside different apps, so prediction is based on who you’re writing to. Siri gets the addition of better music recognition, which is always nice.
Even old favourites like email and SMS apps have new features thrown in. Apple have done themselves proud with iOS 8, and it really is the easiest of operating systems to use on a mobile phone.
There’s both bad and good news on the camera front. No, Apple haven’t improved resolution, it’s still an 8 MP rear facing cam. The good news is that it takes amazing pictures thanks to a couple of things that Apple have improved.
There’s an awesome sensor upgrade which is going to give you a faster focus time. Then there’s the addition of the dual tone flash that we saw on the iPhone 5S, so you get natural colours even in situations that require a bit of extra light. You’ll get all the normal stuff too: different modes, digital image stabilisation, facial recognition. And you’ll get it all in HDR, which is now default.
For that front facing camera Apple have added HDR capabilities as well, plus you get better facial recognition and again, better and faster focus. Put all of this together and despite the fact that neither camera gets higher resolution, you’re still getting some fantastic pics.
Hate charging your phone more than once a day? Then the iPhone 6 is going to be right up your alley. It’s got vastly improved battery life, getting up to 10 hours over 3G and 4G, and up to eleven on WiFi, a clear improvement over the iPhone 5S.
You get more speed too. New protocols mean that the iPhone 6 is getting WiFi up to three times faster, and 4G or LTE has been improved for up to 150 Mbps download speeds. Add to that support for both WiFi calling and VoLTE and you’re looking at some awesome connectivity options.
It’s worth noting as well that there’s an added barometer sensor on the 6’s upgraded M8 sensor, and far better NFC support. Apple are working on a digital payment system, though for the time being it will be US only.

It can be tough to continually upgrade your phone models year after year, but at least for this year Apple have done an amazing job. The iPhone 6 is bigger, better, faster and even more attractive than the iPhone 5S.
Power, screen, battery, all have improvements and of course you’re getting all your regular phone features too, 4G connectivity, Bluetooth etc.
What don’t we like? That’s tough. This is such a clear upgrade. We’d like to see a bit more camera resolution, and also the option to add more storage. But on the whole, the iPhone 6 is a fantastic upgrade and one that’s well worth paying for.
