The iPhone 6

It’s here. Apple released its iPhone 6 Sept.19 With its 4.7 inch display and depth of 6.9 mm, the iPhone 6 has a larger screen than the iPhone 5s and is the thinnest iPhone so far. 

It also introduces Apple Pay, which enables users to pay with their iPhone via fingerprint access and to shop online easier. 

Lindsay Moore, a sophomore pre-pharmacy major, said that she just got her first smartphone, the iPhone 5c, in May and she is not ready to get another phone yet. 

“I’m not into the ‘get a new phone, get a new phone’ thing,” Moore said.

The Wifi works up to 3 times faster than on an iPhone 5. 

Apple has also improved from the iPhone 5’s battery life. The iPhone 6 has 10 more hours of audio playback and 4 more hours of talk time than the iPhone 5s. 

The iPhone 6 Plus

This new gadget is a lot like the iPhone 6 in exception to its size. The iPhone 6 Plus boasts a 5.5 inch display, 1.5 inches more than the iPhone 5, making it the largest-screened iPhone so far. It is not as thin as the iPhone 6, but it is thinner than the iPhone 5s. 

The iPhone 6 Plus is also set apart by its 80 hours of audio playback, which is twice as much as the iPhone 5s and 30 hours more than the iPhone 6.
