The iPhone 6 is finally here and Apple lovers are rejoicing at its brand-new features, but is it worth the price? A number of cell phone service providers will be offering the iPhone 6 this fall, giving consumers a wide variety of choices. However, it’s worth looking into the features before buying the phone for work or play. Apple retails the phone starting at $199 on its website.


Bigger and Better

Apple claims the new iPhone 6 is bigger and better than ever before, and it comes in two sizes, 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches. Those who want a larger screen now have the option, which brings Apple back to the forefront of the smartphone world, which has already moved onto bigger screens. Additionally, the phone transitions seamlessly from glass to metal for a sleek, modern look and includes an HD-retina display.


Tech Specs

The iPhone 6 comes with an M8 motion coprocessor and A8 chip, making it faster and more efficient for the tech lover who’s interested in the best products on the market. It also has 64-bit architecture and an increased battery life.



Now that Apple revolutionized photos, it has set its sights on making video better, too. Those who buy the iPhone 6 will have the option to capture 1080p HD at 60 fps, 240-fps slo-mo and time-lapse video. Home movies just got a little more interesting.


Whether your phone is outdated or you simply want Apple’s latest product, consider the pros and cons before you make the leap. Learn more about the iPhone 6 at Apple’s website.
