The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are now available, here's all you need to know about them

Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is now officially over. Well, for most of you, anyway -- folks in MDT and PST time zones still have an hour or two (8AM) before local Apple Stores start opening their doors to the iPhone-hungry hordes of people surrounding the entirety of their premises. If you've ordered the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus online, chances are that a courier will be at your doorstep by lunch.

Obviously, right now is a time for excitement, as millions of people will be rushing to get their new iDevice. That said, not all of us just have to have the new iPhone the very moment it becomes available, and those people will usually wait out the lines and focus on getting up to speed with all-things iPhone 6 and iPhone 6  Plus. Irrespective of which group you fall into, now would be a pretty good time to sit back and catch up on what's new with the new iPhones and the next iteration of iOS, and also how they compare with what competitors have on offer. So go grab a cup of coffee, open them blinds, and cherry-pick the content that you care about the most from our growing library of related news, reviews, feature spotlights and comparisons.

I can't wait for the PA reviews, and the inevitable backlash in the comments from the haters who will accuse PA of being on the Apple payroll if they rate the 6 and 6 plus anything higher than a 7.

I want the 6+ but I probably wait for the iPhone 6S+ which I suppose is going to have 2GB RAM and a bigger battery!!!

You clearly don't know what you're talking about,.....And we "Android users" pay just for the best (aka: Note 4) and it's called "Upgrade" to the best 2014/2015 hardware/software,..... not "Downgrade" to iCrappy 2011/2012 hardware and iZombies just won't understand they just buy any iCrap,iCheap,iToy they see,LMAO!!

I've owned both and can't wait to dump the Galaxy s4 for the 6plus. Goodbye to crashing apps, calls and texts not coming through... I've already had to replace the battery twice. Goodbye to ads on my phone and all the other crap that I've had to put up with. If you prefer android, great. But the terms crap and cheap do not apply to anything Apple makes.

Buy whatever you want no one forced you to buy anything,..... but when it comes to the phablet territory Samsung with it's Note series is just the BEST at doing it!!,...... it isn't just a big screen.

Um, the S5 and Note 4 and other high-end Android devices that sell by the millions cost the same as an iPhone. And how pathetic is it that your self-esteem is seemingly tied to your phone?

Why did Apple removed the camera on side pictures of the phone ?

Because the way the pics were taken you couldn't see it, that's how all the iPhone's photos are taken

The iPhone 6 is the best phone on the market according to most reviewers like Steve Wozniak. So I will trust his opinion vs a random troller

I see PA report on quite a lot of Chinese phones that are exclusive to China. Should I believe they are on their payroll also? Get real people. Getting back on topic about the iPhone 6, just saw the actual thing the very first time today. What can I say? Didn't expect myself to be so impressed. The phone literally made my iPhone 5S look like an out of date toy that nobody wants. The chamfered glass, the great contrast + saturated screen, and the stylishness of the slim and light body -- I couldn't believe my own eyes. Correct me if I am wrong, but the out-layer glass seem to be as thin (yet sturdy) as ever. was going to pick up an Android... not anymore. Have to admit I am not a fan of the protruding lense, but I can live with that. Granted the iOS 8 update was a travesty that almost bricked my 5S, given how sexy the 6 is I think I'd give it a chance. ;)

Yup, just one more iFan, Is that iChamfered screen looks like my old Galaxy S3 (aka 2.5D Glass) and on the Note 4 or what??,just sayin,....... And your iOS8 thing is just clear copy from android like:Widgets,3rd party keyboards.......etc, we all know that the iCrap 6 plus is just a copy from the note series minus the 2011/2012 hardware that found on your iToy and the productivity on the Note 4 it's not just a big screen.

"Granted the iOS 8 update was a travesty that almost bricked my 5S, given how sexy the 6 is I think I'd give it a chance. ;)" So how your phone looks is more important that how it works?!? Good grief. Epitome of a fanboy.

No offense, but what is up with people trying to offend others who enjoy their Apple gadgets? Some people prefer Apple while others like Google. It's just how it is. To honest though, it was me being cheap and trying to off load it into another account before I updated that caused the mess. To each their own, but many people like how simplistic and user friendly iOS is. Did you happen to read my previous posts? I happen to be one of those who also appreciates how Android devices bringing new technologies to the table. Yes Apple now copies and I am not a fan of that, but they also happen to refine them and put it to practical use in a more refined package. Yes I know Android has true multi-tasking and a ton of user customisation. I know why people would want that but heck, enough with the my way or the highway mentality already.
