At last, one of the most highly anticipated technological releases has finally arrived: the iPhone 6. On Sept. 9 Apple announced in their annual reveal in Cupertino that the iPhone 6 and a new iPhone 6 Plus will be available for pre-order on Sept. 12. Apple also provided a first look at the new version of the long-loved smartphone, proving that with each new release the iPhone does get bigger and better.
With the iPhone 6 at 4.7 inches long and the Plus at 5.5 inches, Apple is finally addressing the long held advantage of bigger screens in the Android market. Not only are both phones longer than their predecessor, the iPhone 5, both are also the thinnest iPhones yet at respectively 6.9 mm and 7.1 mm. Apple just keeps on going longer and thinner, testing the boundaries of just how narrow they can go.
Both phones also promise improved resolution, evident in the iPhone 6 Plus’s retina display. Apple has also introduced a new feature, “ApplePay,” that allows users to store all their credit and debit cards on their phone, taking the iPhone one step further to the all-in-one device.
Similar to the iPhone 5 the new smartphones will include Touch ID technology and a color range of gold, silver and black. The iPhone 6 starts at $199, and the Plus starts at $299. Both are available for pre-order starting Sept. 12, and in-store purchase on the nineteenth.
