Apple announced the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus on September 9, 2014. Both phones feature “Retina HD” displays, and the glass on the front curves into the body, as opposed to the flat edges on previous models.
Apple says both models are the thinnest the company has ever made, and both have improved battery life. The handsets 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 handsets will have NFC built-in for mobile apps.
