We’ve waited for this for too long and, now, we have it. Yes, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were released few days ago. And in case you are not yet aware of what’s new with the latest iPhone models and what makes them different from their predecessors, you better continue reading this post and see how wonderful Apple is when it comes to innovation.

Longer battery life


When I say ‘longer battery life’, I don’t mean additional hours’ worth of battery power for the iPhone 6. I mean that the iPhone 6 can now last a full day. You read it right: a day. So, even if you’re going to be out for a longer period of time, even from morning to night, the iPhone 6 is going to stay on top of its game.

Silver and gold brushed exterior


Forget about Lorde singing that we can never be royals. Besides the space gray color, the iPhone 6 is available in silver and gold finishes. With the silver or gold iPhone 6 in your hand, you can feel more powerful, like a king or a queen. Say goodbye to the peeling cases of your old phone. The iPhone 6’s exterior can stand for itself.

Take “burst” selfies

Take multiple selfies with the front camera of the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus. You can now have more chances of having the best shot of yourself. Say goodbye to double-chin and poorly lit photos.

No more cash or credit card needed

Apple Pay

We all love the convenience and efficiency that credit cards offer whenever we shop. However, there are times when we just can’t help but splurge. Apple Pay can definitely help you shop with ease. All you have to do is get your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and access your bank account right away!

Lose weight with the M8 motion processor


Apple cares for your health, honey. Losing weight and keeping you on the right track to weight management are just two of the things the iPhone 6 and its new M8 motion coprocessor can help you do. With the help of the new M8 motion processor, you can track your pace if you are cycling or running.

One-handed phone navigation


This is what Apple calls “reachability.” You do not have to use both of your hands just to be able to control the larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus properly. Just double tap the Home button to shift the entire UI down to put the UI elements at the top of the display so you could easily reach them. Multitasking is now possible.

Better panorama settings

Remember the time when iPhone pioneered the panorama effect in its cameras? Well, it only got better with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Now, you can have better photos of scenery.


You no longer need to look closely at your screen to be able to read even the tiniest words. With the auto-rotation feature of the new iPhone, you would be able to see clearly whatever it is you are trying to view.

Redesigned power button

Switching your iPhone off becomes easier with the redesigned power button of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Compared to the earlier iPhone models, the power button on the new iPhone is easier to reach.

Play better-looking games

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models are equipped with A8 processors, which are 64-bit chips essentially designed to make phone gaming more visually pleasing and fun. So, if you enjoyed playing Pacific Rim in your iPhone 5s before, expect better-quality graphics with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Call through Wi-Fi connection

Make calls whenever you want and wherever you are. You do not have to solely rely on your mobile connection to call your contacts anymore. Even if you are in a dead zone with no mobile signal, you can call anyone you want as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection.

No more autocorrect failures

Have you ever experienced sending the wrong impression because of autocorrect? Yeah, it sucks, right? But with the new iPhone’s predictive keyboard, the autocorrect system won’t instantly replace words for you. Rather, it would suggest words that you might want to say.

All-improved camera

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sport a camera that’s definitely more capable than its predecessor. The latest iPhones’ iSight camera has a new image signal processor that enables faster autofocus. You’ll also be able to shoot 720p slow-motion videos at 240 or 120 fps; these low fps rates really let you have a lot of fun with your videos.
