Apple's new releases this year are two iPhones instead of the usual one - iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. This has set the iPhone Application Development enthusiasts and experts to work, opening up new opportunities in phone gap application development. iPhone 6's predecessor, the iPhone 5s was Apple's best phone and there are many who worry whether to upgrade or not.
When it comes to comparison of the smartphones, Apple provides very little space for choice to customers like the Android phones. The options are pretty straight forward and customers are not overwhelmed by the choices presented. Androids on the other hand are flexible. The iPhone 6 also provides users with a faster processor, an upgraded camera and improved connectivity along with NFC (Near Field Communication) based mobile payments.
Well, with iPhone 6, Apple has introduced more choice and predictability - iPhone 6 is good - do upgrade, it's worth it!
The all new iPhone 6 has a screen size of 4.7 inch and the iPhone 6 Plus comes with a screen size of a whopping 5.5 inches. With a better battery life and a slightly better camera, the iPhone 6 Plus stands taller than the iPhone 6.
The standard squared sides of iPhone have now been replaced with the rounded corners. The new iPhone is the thinnest phone in the world. Both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are the first phones in the world to use the Multiple Domain LCD Panel and use a modified polarizer that makes it easier to see when you wear polarized sun glasses.
The new camera has an improved sensor that allows 81% more light. The camera is designed to speed up the auto-focusing auto stabilization that compensates for a slight amount of motion blur and hand shakiness too. Comparing the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, we have an 8 megapixels camera (rear facing) with an improved sensor that has 1.5 micron pixels, an f/2.2 aperture lens as well as the ability to shoot 1080p videos at either 30 or 60 frames per second. Along with all this, the iPhone 6 camera also includes phase detection auto-focus and can record slow-motion video at 120 or 240 frames per second. The iPhone 6 Plus camera is almost identical but includes a special feature for optical image stabilization.
The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, both use the latest A8 chip from Apple that uses the M8 processor.
Well, to sum it up, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus come with great features for iPhone Application Development and differences between the two are not as many. If you are planning an upgrade from your iPhone 5s, I'd say, bigger is better and the iPhone 6 Plus could be a better choice. Both the phones hit the market this fall and have swept the mobile market with a whopping 4 million within it's first 24 hours of availability - a record setter truly.
