Apple announced the iPhone 6, which is 4.7 inches, and the iPhone 6 Plus, which is 5.5 inches, on September 9, 2014. Both phones feature “Retina HD” displays, and the glass on the front of the displays curves into the body, as opposed to the flat edges on all prior models.
At 6.9 mm and 7.1 mm, Apple says both models of the iPhone 6 are the thinnest the company has ever made. The handsets for the iPhone 6s are powered by Apple’s new A8 processor, which Apple claims is at least 25 percent faster than the A7 by processing power and 50 percent faster by graphic-rendering prowess. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus also have improved battery life.
The handsets will ship in gold, silver, and space gray, and they will have NFC built-in for mobile apps. The 16GB iPhone 6 costs $199, while the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus costs $299.
