Premium, seamless design
When you hold the iPhone 6 in your hand, you’ll notice how incredibly great it feels. Soft curves and rounded edges on a sleek metal body give a luxurious feel that’s easy to love and hard to match. Smooth, lightweight, and perfectly seamless. There are no edges. No gaps either. The outside is just a smooth, luxurious bond of metal and glass that wholly feels like one continuous surface. While the iPhone 6 is substantially bigger than the previous iPhones, it does not feel bigger at all. With 6.9mm thickness, the iPhone 6 comes in a dramatically thinner design that still fits in your hand.
New physical layout
The iPhone 6 proves that change is good. The iPhone’s physical layout has just changed for the better. Now, the control buttons are re-aligned and redesigned to make them even easier to access and use. Volume buttons are elongated and placed at the left side. The Sleep/Wake button finds a new home on the right side of the device where it’s more within your reach. Everything is re-thought and redesigned to achieve a more optimized navigation for a more intuitive mobile experience.
If you find the iPhone 6 too big for your hand, Apple solves your problem with Reachability. It is a new button gesture which moves items from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen for quick access. Simply double-tap (not press) the home button for easier, one-handed navigation.
A bigger display without feeling big
The smartphone industry is on a roll about making bigger displays that entrance the human eye, and Apple is not shy about joining the trend. Now, the iPhone 6 delivers not just a wider display, but also a better one. Surprising the world with a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, the iPhone 6 is a window that opens up to a world of endless visual possibilities. A larger display equals a larger canvas that allows you to do more and create more. This wider display comes with an improved polarizer and higher contrast–making each pixel accurate in color, with deeper blacks and sharper text.
An additional display feature that makes a whole world of difference is the Zoom View. In Settings, you can choose between Standard View and Zoom View. Zoom View lets you view all of your content bigger, more close-up. It makes the homescreen a sight to behold with colorful apps all neatly lined up displaying big, eye-catching icons.
When Apple released iOS8 in 2014, people loved it for simple, captivating graphics and natural feel. Now, your iPhone 6 comes with the biggest updates to let you enjoy apps even more. iOS8 comes with the redesigned Photos app and the introduction of the Health app. The Health app is your digital partner in storing fitness information and understanding your physical needs. Typing is made even easier with iOS8’s smartest keyboard that suggests contextually appropriate words to complete your sentences. You can also send a video or voice message straight from the Messages app, eliminating the need for external chat apps.
Details make the iOS8 most brilliant. Besides a completely pleasant visual experience, iOS8 surprises you with little additions that can change the way you do mobile. Use the Tips section of your iPhone to discover more tips and tricks in making the most of iOS8.

Better battery life
iPhone users have voiced out that one of the smartphone’s weaknesses is the battery life. While previous models like the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c have displayed weak performance in terms of prolonged usage, Apple makes everything right with the iPhone 6’s commitment to last up to 250 hours of standby, up to 14 hours of 3G talk time, and up to 11 hours Wi-Fi browsing.
iSight: Apple’s Most Powerful Camera
The iPhone camera has always been loved for taking Instagram-ready photos. No matter where you are, capturing moments with a mobile phone camera is part of your lifestyle, and the iPhone 6 makes it so much easier with the iSight camera. Packed with new camera technologies to help you produce great visual content, your iPhone 6 brings a new lease of life to your social media accounts. Featuring large 1.5-micron pixels and f/2.2 aperture, the world’s most popular camera lets you create a personal gallery of everyday art that you can share to the rest of the world.
Every image looks just right with Focus Pixels–a sensor that gives you fast autofocus. Shoot more dramatic slo-mo 1080p HD videos at 60 fps. And for your convenience, you can instantly edit and touch-up your photo after taking it without going to an outside app. Simply edit it in the Photos app with smart composition tools, adjustments, and photo filters.
Up to 3x faster Wi-Fi
Apple understands your need for daily reliable access to the Internet. Wi-Fi is no longer a luxury but a necessity that people need in order to thrive. Now, Apple gives the gift of the fastest Wi-Fi capability in the form of the iPhone 6. With your iPhone 6, you can experience faster download and upload speeds for browsing the web, streaming music, making video calls, and more. That’s because the iPhone 6 has 20 LTE bands–which is more than any other smartphone in the world.
Your fingerprint as the best password.
With billions of people around the world, your fingerprint makes you incredibly unique. Your fingerprints make up your identity, deeming you one-of-a-kind. Keep your iPhone 6 exclusively yours with your own mark. The Touch ID feature unlocks your iPhone with just a tap. Access your homescreen, personal data, App Store account, and purchases with just a swipe. Touch ID reduces the risk of other people hacking into your accounts and using your phone. You can enroll multiple fingerprints depending on which one you tend to use. But no matter how you place your finger, Touch ID reads your fingerprints and knows how you are, thanks to its 360-degree capability.
Apple’s break-through Touch ID technology lets you do so much more than unlock your phone. Gain easy access to your music, books, movies, and apps with a single touch. Skip through the process of repeatedly entering your Apple ID and password whenever you’re about to make a purchase. Your iPhone 6 stores your billing information safely and uses your fingerprint as the only way to access it.
Introducing Apple Pay
Gone are the days when you have to go to the local music store to buy a movie or the latest album of your favourite band. Now, purchases can be made online, and Apple has made it so much easier and more secure with Apple Pay. Apple Pay redefines the concept of paperless billing with a unique fingerprint system right in your iPhone.
Checkout is as easy as 1-2-3 with Touch ID’s payment system. To pay, just hold your iPhone near the contactless reader with your finger on Touch ID. You don’t even have to look at the screen to know your payment information was successfully sent. A subtle vibration and beep will let you know.
Say goodbye to lost checkbooks and cards. Your iPhone 6 can store your credit and debit cards too, but always requiring a security code to be accessed. Most importantly, Apple Pay keeps your purchases private and doesn’t save your transaction information. The Apply Pay system has layers and layers of privacy settings so that this important information stays only with you.
