Apple Fans wanted a bigger iPhone since a long time and well officially now they have got one, Not one but two the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 plus. The iPhone 6 is 6.9mm thick making it the thinnest device apple has ever made and the iPhone plus comes out at 7.1 mm thick. That’s still thinner than iPhone 5s. Both phone features a newly designed glass front that’s curved on the sides and Apple says that the new display has retina HD resolution.

Under the hood the device have Apple’s new A8 Processor, which is 25x faster than it’s previous phone and Apple’s M8 graphic chipset is 50x faster graphic processing power(Claims Apple). Compared to the original iPhone the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus are 84x faster. The phone’s M8 chipset has a Barometer which allows the phone to tell the difference between running and cycling as well as accurately measures distance travelled and elevation.

The Company also made major improvements to its camera, the iPhone 6 has an 8 MP camera as the previous model but apple added a “Next-Gen iSight Sensor” which is said to make the auto-focus twice as fast as the 5s. The iPhone 6 plus has even greater camera though featuring significantly improver optical image stabilisation.  This means humans can physically move to compensate the movement of your hand. Though 6 plus is not the first to feature OIS but the first iPhone to do so.
