Apple Special Event: Apple Announce Two New iPhones

Apple have confirmed the new iPhones; iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Company CEO Tim Cook introduced a video showing off the iPhone 6 – coming in at 4.7 inches – and the iPhone 6 Plus, measuring a huge 5.5 inches.

Built once again with glass and aluminium, the new devices are at their thinnest yet; 6.9mm and 7.1mm, with the 6 Plus the ‘bigger’.

Despite the increases in screen size, Apple are keen to maintain the ability for users to navigate their devices with one hand. The 6 Plus comes with a feature called Reachability, with users able to double touch the Home button to bring the whole screen down nearer your thumb.

Additionally, the volume buttons have been stretched out a bit, and the power button now finds its home on the side of the device.

Screen-wise, Apple have once again improved their displays with Retina HD. The iPhone 6 will come with a 1334 x 750 resolution, while it’s larger counterpart boasts a 1920 x 1080 resolution.

The camera has also had a boost, staying a 8MP but as you’ll now find it protruding. It also has a new sensor that allows for auto-focus that will work twice as fast. The iPhone 6 will come with digital image stabilisation, while the 6 Plus will come equipped with optical image stabilisation.

The camera can now also shoot 1080p video, at either 30fps or 60fps. Meanwhile, the Sl0-Mo option goes at 240fps.

The new devices boast the new Apple battery, the A8. The A8 is 25% faster than the A7 and has a 50% boost in graphics performance.

 

If you’re in the US and want to pick up the ‘smaller’ iPhone 6, you’re looking at paying $200 for a 16GB model, $300 for the 64GB version, or $400 for the massive 128GB option. If you want to go that little bit bigger, however, you’re looking at a slightly higher outlay; $300 for 16GB, $400 for 64GB and $500 for 128GB. Of course, all of those prices are along with a two-year network contract.

Here in the UK, get ready to break those bank accounts if you want a sim-free iPhone 6; the 16GB model will cost you £540, it will be £620 for the 64GB version, and the £128GB will cost a whopping £700.

If you feel rather extravagant and want the phablet-like 6 Plus, those bank accounts better be a little more bursting.

The 16GB will set you back £620, while the 64GB version will cost £700. And as for the 128GB model? A cool £790.

The new phones will ship in the US and UK from September 19.
