And it’s here.
After months of rampant speculation (and an abnormally high number of apparent leaks), the new iPhone has arrived. In fact, two new iPhones have arrived — the iPhone 6, and the iPhone 6 Plus.
Here’s what we know so far:
Both phones feature “Retina HD” displays; the iPhone 6 comes in at 4.7 inches (at 1334×750), while the iPhone 6 Plus comes in at 5.5 inches (at 1920×1080)
The glass on the front of the displays now curves into the body, as opposed to the flat edges of all models prior
Apple says these are “the thinnest phones [they've] ever made”, at 6.9mm and 7.1mm, respectively.
Both handsets are powered by Apple’s new A8 processor, which Apple claims is at least 25% faster than the A7 by processing power, and 50% faster by graphic rendering prowess.
Apple is claiming drastically improved battery life across the board; we grabbed a screenshot of the table comparing the battery life across different situations on the 5S, 6, and 6 Plus — see it below.
Both handsets have 802.11ac WiFi support, a relatively new WiFi tech that carries a theoretical max. transfer speed of ~1 Gbps
