A few minutes ago, something happened that we are waiting for so long: Tim Cook and his colleagues officially displayed the new iPhone 6, which will be the flagship smartphone of Apple in the next 12 months. From one viewpoint, the design of the iPhone 6 is very different from past generations of devices: an enlarged body, rounded edges, bulging main camera and a plastic embed in the form of narrow strips that act as a kind of “window” spotted underneath the antennas.
Nevertheless, we have still the same smart phone with the familiar logo of a bitten apple, recognizable front panel with a fingerprint sensor and a customary design of the updated iOS. iPhone 6 comes with attractive UI and runs on iOS 8.

Without exaggeration, the updated line of “apple” smartphone from the two models (with 4.7 and 5.5-inch screen) can be called the largest in the history of Apple. Let’s see what happened with the iPhone over the past year, and as he appeared in front of us.
Design & Architecture
Design of the iPhone 6 was known long before the official announcement yet. Compared with the iPhone 5S, housing has become more streamlined, lost its sharp edges, changed the location of few components, especially, the power button is now located on the right side of the phone, rather than the top, as it was until now. Lightning and audio connectors continue as before and are in the same places at the bottom of the handset. But the grille covering the speaker, has undergone some changes: now it is only on one side of the Lightning, and the holes are lined up in a row. Thickness of the shell of the new 4.7-inch iPhone is 6.9 mm to 7.6 mm at the iPhone 5S.
Display– Larger iPhones
iPhone 6 is launched with 4.7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display with 1334 x750 pixels resolution. Though, Apple launched its bigger version namely, iPhone 6 plus comes with 5.5 inch screen. Some diagonal changes have been made in the basic elements of the display on the main screen: in one line is still located on the 4 icons, while the number of lines has increased: instead of 20 icons in 5 columns maximum number of concurrent applications placed on the screen is now 24 in 6 lines (excluding applications in the bottom dock).
Processor & Graphics
Apple used A8 processor to make faster the phone, made on 20-nm process technology. It is being said that since the first iPhone, productivity increased by 50 times, and the power of the graphics accelerator – to 84-fold. Apple presented demos at the event and showed an incredible level of graphics and gameplay that anticipates us on the “apple” smartphones in the near future. Going back to the hardware stuffing, also the co-processor of the new generation M8, which will process the information from the sensors installed inside, among which there was an interesting freshness – a barometer.
Camera and Videos
Apple has equipped the 8 Megapixel primary camera with more improvement, but in its production has been used a new technology – FocusPixel. iPhone 6 is packed with the digital image stabilization system, whereas iPhone 6 plus is equipped with optical image stabilization system.
There is mounted sensor inside the phone with pixel size of 1.5μm and an aperture of f / 2.2. But the most important thing – the camera lens at the flagship 2014 protrudes slightly from the body of the smartphone – the inevitable price paid for a slim body. iPhone 6 can record the 1080p videos at 30 fps.
Battery & Connectivity
iPhone 6 will support more than 20 bands of LTE, and an important innovation will be to support VoLTE. Now the phone will have updated Wi-Fi-module. The Smartphone can work in networks of Wi-Fi 802.11ac and it would work 3 times faster than its predecessor.
Battery capacity is traditionally not reported, but the battery life flagships resulted in the summary table. The iPhone 6’s battery will deliver talktime up to 14 hours on 3G and stand by time up to 250 hours on 3G.
The company is starting the sales of the iPhone 6 from 19 September. The cost of the smartphone on the contract will be $ 199, $ 299 and $ 399 for the version with 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB of internal memory, respectively.
