Apple released not one but two smartphones with big screen along with a smart watch, due to strong competition with Android phones and watches.
IPhone 6 Specs and Price
IPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch were released Tuesday night in Cupertino, California, in an event that was present not only the technology press, but many fashion journalists. In Europe, the iPhone 6 price is between 700 and 900 euros, depending on the version you want (16GB, 64GB or 129GB), according to information published in the UK. Iphone 6 price for US will start at $199 with contract for 16GB version, $299 for 64 GB version and $399 for 128GB version which is good for IPhone 6 specs and price raport.
From iPhone 6 specs we find out that is bigger and thinner, with a 4.7 inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus comes with size increased even more, 5.5 inches. Samsung Galaxy S5 has a 5.1 inch screen, while the newly-released Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes with a 5.7 inch display.
iPhone 6 has rounded edges, exactly as shown in leaked photos appeared before the event due to sources in China. It has 6,9 mm thick and the back is made of aluminum.
Tuesday’s event in California began with the presentation of a movie in which Apple talked about how it sees things differently on iphone 6 specs and price
iPhone 6 screen is not sapphire, as discussed, but with a strong glass, so-called “ion-strengthened glass“, with curved edges. LCD screen is a “Retina HD” and resolution is 750×1334 pixels, which leads to a density of 326 pixels per inch.
The smartphone received a 8MP camera, but the company says there are improvements. You can make panoramas of up to 43MP. Unfortunately, there is no optical image stabilization to iPhone 6, but the iPhone 6 Plus has it.
For those who are interested in movies, iPhone 6 can record images at 1080p with 60 and 30fps. In slow motion, you can record with 120fps or 240 fps, but in this case the resolution is a little bit lower.
As the rumors said, Apple equipped IPhone 6 with Apple A8 chip which seems to have 64-bit processor 25% faster then iPhone 5s and GPU performance has increased by 50%. The chip is built on a 20nm architecture, which makes it 13% smaller than A7.
Regarding the battery, things are not great, but satisfying. Apple said the iPhone 6 should last 14 h at 3G conversations. We also received some complaints about iPhone 6 not charging properly and wrote a short guide about how to fix this issue.
Besides traditional GSM calls, the new phone supports VoLTE (Voice Over LTE) and Wi-Fi calls, on telecom operators such as EE in the UK. This year, we talk about LTE Cat.4 which has speeds of up to 150Mbps.
Improvements at Wi-Fi too. We now have Wi-Fi 802.11ac three times stronger than Wi-Fi speeds which we had until now.
The new smartphone IPhone 6 has NFC, which introduces Apple Pay for wireless payments.
The new iPhone 6 has “motion co-processor”, and a barometer. These two can realize the difference between a run and a cycling and count the steps you do.
iPhone 6 comes in versions with storage space of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB.
Pre orders for IPhone 6 are on September 12 and phones will be delivered by September 19. By the end of the year, the new iPhone 6 will arrive in more than 100 countries worldwide.
IPhone 6 Plus Specs and Price
iPhone 6 Plus was officially launched on Tuesday along with the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, a watch designed to be a clever fashion accessory. iPhone 6 Plus has an aluminum case with rounded side edges. The phone is a bit thinner than the iPhone 6, with 7.1mm.
IPhone 6 Plus price in Europe without any contract, is between 800 and 1,000 euros, according to information coming from the UK. Version with 16 GB will cost 800 euros, 64GB will be 900 euros, and the model with 128GB of storage space will be 1,000 euros.

iPhone 6 Plus Specs reveal that it has a 5.5-inch IPS screen with Retina HD 1920 x 1080p resolution, leading to a density of 400 pixels per inch. Thanks to this big screen, this smartphone can be used more easily to navigate on the internet or to be used as a GPS navigation system.
The IPhone 6 Plus interface was optimized for a larger screen so that it can be divided in two, for better use of applications.
The new smartphone from Apple has 64 bit A8 chip (20nm architecture), which means 25% faster CPU and 50% more GPU .
iPhone 6 Plus also received NFC, which will be used to make payments and that does not require to input your bank details every time, but just login.
The phone has received an iSight camera of 8MP with dual flash. Pixels size is the same as the iPhone 5s, that is 1.5 microns. What is new is that the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilization, the only phone ever launched by Apple that has this function. It also comes with phase-detection autofocus.

Apple watch was released too along with IPhone 6 and IPhone 6 Plus
Apple Watch was actually the centerpiece of Tuesday’s launch, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was presented more on the run.
Apple’s Watch product could transform Apple into a fashion company. Or at least that was the impression Apple left after the event in Cupertino, where iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were presented on fast forward, while to Apple Watch was dedicated good full minutes. At the launch were invited many fashion journalists.
Apple Watch comes with two screen sizes, 33mm and 42mm, and at both were included sapphire, which provides a better resistance. These will be a version with 18-karat gold, called Apple Watch Edition, but for those who don’t have the money, will be an aluminum and stainless steel versions, called Apple Watch Sport.
The screen understands different touches, when you simply press and and when you press harder, and apps will benefit from this. Moreover, users can set themselves what to happen at every kind of press. Apple Watch will not be always turned on, but is activated when you lift your hand up.
Another thing is that Apple Watch has a key on the side, which can be spun to zoom the maps application.
At the presentation last night I found out that Siri and Apple Watch befriended , and you can dictate questions. Like on Android Smart Watches , notifications on your phone can be displayed on Apple Watch.
Apple’s intelligent clock can monitor your heart rate, but when you run, it uses the iPhone’s GPS to determine your position.
Apple Watch can be used to make payments directly from your account.
Apple Watch will be available early next year, and the price will be $ 350 in the USA. To use it, you should have at least an IPhone 4S.
