Apple iPhone 6, 6 Plus: 10 best nd New features..


1) We’ve seen the iPhone 6 loom larger and less blurry, leak after leak in the months leading up to the big unveil. The leaks were spot on for a change and we will get iPhone 6 in two sizes — 4.7-inch as well as a 5.5-inch.

2) Retina HD:
Apple has outdone itself in the buzzwords game. The new Retina HD display is an ultra thin IPS display with 326ppi pixel density for iPhone 6, capable of wider viewing angles.

The iPhone 6 Plus gets a 1334x750 pixel display, and for the first time on the iPhone, a full-HD 1920 x 1080 display on the iPhone 6 Plus.

In terms of specs, this is not really mind-blowing when you consider Samsung, LG and Oppo’s Quad HD displays at 446 ppi. But logic-wise it makes sense, as it costs more CPU to push Quad HD images to a display that's as sharp as a 1080p display to the normal eye.

3) Ion strengthened screen:
Is it Gorilla Glass???Is it a Sapphire screen as rumoured???
No, it’s a brand new ion strengthened screen. While there are absolutely no details on this mysterious new screen technology, which curves neatly around the sides of the iPhone.

We should have more details on this Ion technology when we get them. As long as it makes iPhone tougher to break, we are fine.
4) 2nd generation 64-Bit processors:
While the Android world is still floundering in the dark for 64-bit processor, the only significant next step in mobile technology, Apple has bettered its superb A7 processor with the A8, using a 20nm manufacturing process.

Not only that, Apple claims that it will perform better over a longer period of time.

5) Metal, 3D app and game engine:
In a surprising move, Apple revealed the Metal API for game developers to take advantage of in pushing the graphical envelope of their games. Steve Jobs had never been big on gaming for years and Bungie story is the biggest example of that.

However, it’s great to see Tim Cook making big strides into gaming territory, especially since the App Store has some of the best games on mobile devices to date.
6) M8, Motion co-processor health chip:
Apple’s M8 health chip has gotten better, with the ability to measure relative distance and elevation, and can tell the difference between cycling and running.

While elevation helps in tracking the amount of steps you climb, the Nike+ app was shown displaying relative elevation on hikes by using the barometer too.

7) Better battery:
A feature that iPhone users have been screaming hoarse about and Samsung has taken the opportunity to jab at in their ads is the bad IPhone battery life.

Finally, Apple has addressed this with the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Apple claims 14 hours for iPhone 6 and 24 hours of 3G Talktime for the iPhone 6 Plus. Of course, we cannot wait to put this to the test.

8) 3X faster Wi-Fi;
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus support 802.11ac, the superfast new Wi-Fi band that’s all the rage.

Apple claims the new iPhones can browse up to 3x faster on Wi-Fi which is good if you happened to have put down a lot of money on one of the first 802.11ac modems.

9 )8MP camera with True Tone flash 1.5 micron pixel sensor:
Though Apple did not stuff more megapixels in the new iPhones, it’s 8 megapixel snapper has grown up. With True Tone Flash and with the 1.5 Micron pixel sensor, Apple seems to be taking a cue from HTC’s handbook with ultrapixels. Apple has also introduced Focus Pixels for faster auto-focus with phase detection, and an aperture of f/2.2. iSight camera can take a stunning 43MP panorama.

It has an image signal processor to aid in all the image-heavy lifting. Both iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have auto (optical) image stabilisation: an absolute first for an iPhone. The camera can capture 1080p video at 30 or 60 fps and slow motion video at 240 fps. With Cinematic Video Stabilisation, and using Focus Pixels, you can get continuous autofocus in video.

10) Burst selfie front-facing camera:
The selfie has bought the front-facing camera into the limelight. A Facetime HD camera with a yet unknown megapixel count. However, it’s capable of beautiful selfies, with improved face detection.

The most important feature is burst selfies, which takes a bunch of pictures in one shot, allowing you to never miss a moment.
