Apple iPhone 6: all the new features

Apple iPhone 6: all the new features
Apple took to the stage just a little while ago, hosting a special event to announce the biggest changes to its mobile devices franchise since the introduction of the first iPad. Not only did we have new entries in the iPhone franchise announced, and bold ones at that, like the iPhone 6, but Apple is also venturing into a brand new market niche for the first time - that of smart wearables.

We knew that Apple has placed a big emphasis on this event when it rented a larger-than-usual venue for the keynote - rather than holding it in the Yerba Buena Center for Arts in San Francisco, it picked the larger hall of Flint Center in its home town of Cupertino. The Flint Center is an iconic location for Apple: it’s the place where the company unveiled the iconic Macintosh 30 years ago in 1984, and that’s also where the colorful iMac started Apple's revival in 1998.

This back-to-the-innovation-roots keynote yielded the long-awaited iPhone 6, whose screen diagonal marks the largest iPhone display increase in history - from 4" to a 4.7" model - but also a variety of brand new additions to the Apple's handset line functionality. Let's summarize all the new features of the freshly-minted iPhone 6.

Look like apple is just playing around... they think that they know what ifans want, but in reality they dont. I was shocked at the specs of the phone when they are announcing ip6, i would rather request all the ifans to stop encouraging ip6 so that they improve with next model, it look like Jobs took his innovation with him.. i felt after so many years that iphone is playing a catching up game..... i would really apreciate today Samsungs efforts......

For active family's 4k video let's you extract 8mp photos that are blur free. Its a very important feature for some parents. Less missed family photos

Reasons to record in 4k: 1. Video recorded at 4k looks better downscaled than video recorded at 1080p. 2. 4k gives option for zooming and panning in post when downscaling to 1080p. #. 4k gives extra screen sized for cropping when doing image stabilization.

with due respect you need to accept that a company like apple should do introduce the phone to next level than degrading it with such specs.... 8MP cam, is that a joke? now phone are coming with 8mp front shooter........ i would like to have great specs along with performance... i am also ifan and couldnt swtich to android... i will wait for next iphone.. hope it will be a innovation...................

Why 4K? Your TV runs 4k? All people TV run 4K? No! Your android record 120 / 240 fps at 720p? NO!

Most flagships can do 720p at 120 FPS, I don't know about 240 FPS though, but some have 1080p at 120 FPS which I find better.

Actually, the new Mediatek processors which are or will be in the newest phones are able to record 480p at 1080p... Sorry...
