The iPhone 6 crams in a larger, 4.7-inch screen, a more powerful processor and an improved camera into a 6.9mm frame that means it's the slimmest iPhone ever. And could well be the smartphone you've been holding out for.
What does a larger screen for the iPhone mean in practice? It means many things. It means a fantastic mobile video experience, for one thing. That's because the Retina HD screen packs in an amazing 401 pixels per inch for glorious picture quality whether you're watching your home movies or a Hollywood blockbuster.
What it doesn't mean is that the iPhone 6 is hard to use with one hand. To take care of that problem, Apple has redesigned the layout of the buttons and has introduced an innovative one-handed mode, so you can reach the functions that sit at the top of the screen at all times.
So what else is new? Well, the iPhone 6's eight-megapixel iSight camera has been revamped. And with spectacular results. For the first time it now lets you record 1080 HD footage at 30 frames per second (fps). And for when you want to indulge your inner Spielberg, you can experiment with amazing 240-fps slow-motion video or even time-lapse clips.
Still images are better too. The 1.5-micron pixels and ƒ/2.2 aperture is boosted with the addition of new face-detection technology, exposure controls and a sensor that focuses on your subjects in the blink of an eye. The upshot? Great snaps each and every time.
As you might expect with an up-to-the minute smartphone, there's also been an injection of power and pace. Browsing is faster than ever, thanks to support for super fast 4G that offers speeds of up to 150Mbps (depending on your carrier). Wi-Fi is 3X faster than the iPhone 5S too.
The power boost comes care of the mighty A8 processor and M8 motion co-processor. Sinewy but super energy-efficient, these keep things ticking over no matter how busy your screen gets with apps and services and boost battery life. The upshot? you won't have to worry about missing that important call ever again.
Other standout features of this stellar smartphone include a whopping 64BG of storage, shatter-proof glass with an anti-smudge coating, iOS 8, one-touch payments in shops using your handset and advanced health monitoring when combined with wearable sports accessories.
