Apple has outdone itself with the iPhone 6’s design – despite gaining a significant amount of screen real estate, it doesn’t feel huge compared to its predecessor, and it’s still a very easy device to use one-handed. If Apple has faltered anywhere with design, it might be that protruding iSight camera lens on the back, which sticks out a tiny fraction of an inch thicker than the rest. [click to continue…]

One look at the Flint Centre, and no one would say that it is a tech event. It was touted to be Apple’s biggest keynote in a while as this was the first time Apple CEO Tim Cook was launching a new product line. So did he pass the litmus test or not? Here is a rundown of what happened at Flint Centre and how good/bad it was:

iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus 

Apple had to finally give in to the demand for big screen phones and hence it launched two new successors to the iPhone 5S. The first one is the iPhone 6 which has 4.7 inch screen whereas the second is called the iPhone 6 plus which sports a 5.5 inch screen. Both the phones are very similar in terms of features and the only thing that sets the 6 plus apart is the resolution and the camera.

The iPhone 6 has a 1334×750 resolution at 326 ppi and Digital Image Stabilization whereas the iPhone 6 Plus has a 1920×1080 resolution at 401 ppi and Optical Image Stabilization. Other specs like the A8 chip with 64-bit architecture, M8 motion processor, 8-megapixel iSight camera with 1.5µ pixels, ƒ/2.2 aperture, etc remain the same for both. Like the 5S, the 6 and 6 Plus will be available in Space Gray, Silver and Gold colours.

Apple is known to launch a new smartphone every fall. This year we await the iPhone 6. As expected, there have N number of rumours about the new iPhone. Last year Apple brought a new line of plastic body iPhones called the iPhone 5c. We aren’t sure if that lineup will continue, but for the flagship 5s, the expected list of upgrades is huge.

Below is a list of features, we expect the iPhone 6 to have –

Bigger Screen

Phones displays are getting bigger by the day. Today, the average screen size of a phone would be in the range of 4.7-5 inches. Apple has definitely been losing out on customers due to the small screen size of previous generation iPhones. Hence, most likely the iPhone 6 will have a bigger screen. Rumours say that Apple will launch two variant – a 4.7 inches and a 5.5 inches iPhone. This will allow the iPhone 6 to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S5 (5.1 inches), Sony Xperia Z2 (5.2 inches), LG G3 (5.5 inches) and Nokia Lumia 930 Windows 8 (5 inches).
