iPhone 6 Plus


Alongside the new iPhone 6, Apple also unveiled the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. It has the exact same design and hardware including the A8 processor and M8 motion co-processor, 8-megapixel camera, Barometer, NFC, and iOS 8, but there are some key differences that make this a higher-end model.

For starters, the iPhone 6 Plus’s iSight camera has optical image stabilization, which means photos there is a lesser chance of getting blurry photos. The iPhone 6 Plus can also be operated in landscape mode; the entire home screen can be viewed horizontally like on the iPad. In certain apps such as messages, you’ll get dual-pane views, and when using the onscreen keyboard, dedicated keys for things like copy, cut, and paste will be available.

Think of the iPhone 6 Plus as built for people who do a lot of computing on their smartphone. Not only is the screen larger than the iPhone 6, but it’s sharper too: 1920 x 1080 at 401 pixels per inch aka Full HD resolution. It’s also a little thicker at 7.1 mm.

Battery life is better on the iPhone 6 Plus, too: 80 hours of audio playback, 14 hours of video playback, up to 12 hours on LTE and Wi-Fi, and up to 16 days of standby time.

With the larger screen comes a higher price. The iPhone 6 Plus is priced accordingly: $299 for 16GB, $399 for the 64GB and $499 for the 128GB with two-year contracts and will come in the same silver, gold and space gray color options.

Price: $299+
