At one of the biggest tech events of this year, Apple has just unveiled its two new iPhones. The two devices, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 + look exactly like the leaked images and videos that have graced the rumour-sphere of late. They are considerably thin, up to the point that it is necessary that the camera lens protrudes on the back. The official images from the live stream show devices with deep edge-to-edge black profiling. Additionally, the glass front curves over to the sides of the phone creating a clamp-like design. Tim Cook is highly appreciative of his company’s new devices, even stating that they “are the best phones you’ve ever seen”. Apple says that the back is made out of anodized aluminium, and the logo is of stainless steel. What is more, the displays are apparently ‘Retina HD’, which they say is a new generation of display.
There are a lot of additions such as some buttons that have been added to the keyboard. These are especially useful in landscape mode. They’ve added a new functionality called ‘reachability’ whereby a double touch on the home button slides down the display to make it easier to reach the top. It eases one handed operability. And of course the power button is on the side. The two models will be available starting from September 19th, however, this will only be in selected markets before being rolled out worldwide. The ‘smaller’ 4.7 inch iPhone will cost $199 for the 16GB base model, $299 for the 64GB model and $399 for the new entrant, the 128GB model. Yes, there will be a 128GB iPhone 6. On the other hand, the larger 5.5inch iPhone 6 Plus will cost $299, $399, and $499 for the 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB models respectively. It is worth noting that these are US-based on-contract prices, and they will be considerably expensive in nations such as here back home. Just like the iPhone 5S, they will be available in 3 colors,space gray, gold and silver.
Well there’s just so much in regards to this new iPhone, and we will be able to keep you up to date with each new info as it unfolds. For now, here are some of the first images of the real device.
