Apple has announced the iPhone 6, offering a bigger screen and a better battery, among other improvements. The phone will be available for purchase September 19th.
The iPhone 6 comes in two models: the standard iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. The standard variant features a 4.7-inch display. The iPhone 6 Plus offers a larger, 5.5-inch display. Both models offer larger screens than the iPhone 5s, which sports a 4-inch display.
Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive officer, describes the new phones as “without a doubt, the best iPhones” Apple has ever created.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sport a higher resolution screen and a better battery than the iPhone 5s, extending the amount of time between charges. A faster processor will enhance gaming and multitasking experiences, and other hardware advancements will boost the phone’s speed and power.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will come preinstalled with iOS 8, Apples latest mobile operating system.
The iPhone 6 will be available for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 64GB model and $399 for the 128GB model. The iPhone 6 Plus will be available for a retail price of $299 for the 16GB model, $399 for the 64GB model and $499 for the 128GB model.
