Apple has announced that iphone 6 will be released to the public on September 16 for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. The software update will come preinstalled on the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus out of the box.
In an unexpected move, Apple has made the iPhone 6 cheaper at launch than last year’s iPhone 5S, with the 16GB model priced at £539 SIM free, compared to £549 last year.
The firm has also ditched the 32GB model, making room for a more spacious 128GB variant, which will be sold alongside the 16GB and 64GB variants. The 64GB iPhone 6 will cost £619 (compared to the 32GB iPhone 5S’ £629 launch price), and the 128GB model £699.
In terms of availability, the company has ensured that this time there is going to be sufficient stock available to avoid any shortages.
The iPhone 6 delivers a spacious, crisp 4.7-inch screen, improved wireless speeds, better camera autofocus, and bumped-up storage capacities to 128GB at the top end. Though the battery life isn’t much better than it is on last year’s iPhone 5S but the remaining features do make up for that.
And then there could also be the wasted space: an even larger screen could have been squeezed into the same housing nevertheless iPhone 6 is an exceptional phone in nearly every way except its average battery life.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are thinner and come equipped with faster A8 processors, improved cameras, speedier Wi-Fi and LTE cellular data connectivity, better voice quality on voice-over-LTE, and — except for entry-level models — more onboard storage. In terms of screen size, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will probably be more than enough for anyone upgrading from a 4-inch (iPhone 5 or 5S) or 3.5-inch screen (all previous iPhone models).
For Android owners who jumped ship from iOS and want to come back, this is the iPhone generation you’ve been waiting for. It’s the best iPhone since the iPhone 5. Back then, 4G LTE and an improved screen and camera made the difference. This time, a larger screen, a fast processor, support for Apple Pay, additional customization features of iOS 8, and increased storage help close the feature gap with top Android phones.
So folks maybe getting a quick grab on the new iphone might not be a bad option!
