The next big thing in the world of Smartphones was recently unveiled by Apple, and San Francisco beared witness to the event. Apple provided the world with the first glimpse of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus while Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple went on to describe these phones as “the most advanced” ones ever used by mankind. Indeed, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus comes with technologies that are unforeseen. Here are the new inventions.
Features of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus
The most intriguing feature is going to be the 3D touch technology that is a first for Smartphones. It works in a unique way by judging the pressure exerted by the user on the touch screen. For instance, a light touch can give you a preview of the menu while a normal tap will launch the menu. A 3D tap on facebook/twitter icons can help you to post a status without even opening the app. The feature is pretty cool and absolutely unprecedented.
The next great thing is the phones’ camera. Rear camera has been upgraded to 12 MP and the front one is going to be 5 MP for either for these phones. The display light itself will work as flash while capturing photos using front camera. But the best part is, one can now capture still photos with audio. Yeah, apple came up with this awesome hybrid between stills and videos which is something to look out for and you’ll also get the frames just prior and post to your capture. There’ll be faster autofocus, better performance in low light and revised color detection.
In the realm of security, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus will have fingerprint scanners, so the users will have access to absolute privacy and complete protection in case of theft.
Both the phones would be operating on iOS 9 and will support LTE band/ Wi-Fi. They’ll be powered by M9 motion co-processor and A9 SoC.
