Apple unveils the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 with Retina HD screen

Tim Cook took the stage at the start of today's event and almost immediately announced the new iPhone 6. The Apple iPhone 6 is based on iPod touch looks and has a 4.7" screen.

The screen is protected by "Ion-strengthened glass", which is curved around the edges for a more seamless experience when swiping. The screen itself is an LCD with "Retina HD," which translates to 750 x 1,334 pixels. This pushes the pixel density to 348ppi.

Despite the new resolution, apps will "just work" thanks to a desktop-class scaler. This will only be needed until devs update their apps to support the new resolution.

The 8MP iSight camera is back for a fourth year in a row. Apple claims the sensor is slightly larger now - it has a 1.5µ pixels, features phase detection autofocus and sits behind an f/2.2 aperture. There's no OIS though, it relies on digital stabilization. The camera can shoot panoramas up to 43MP.

The video resolution is kept at 1080p but the 60fps has now been promoted to the max FullHD resolution (up from 720p @ 60fps). Slo-mo video can shoot at 120fps and 240fps, but at a lower resolution.

The chassis is made of anodized aluminum with a stainless steel Apple logo. The body is just 6.9mm thick.

The Apple iPhone 6 is powered by a second-generation chipset, the Apple A8. It offers 25% more CPU power and 50% extra GPU oomph. The chipset is built on a power-efficient 20nm process, which also makes it 13% smaller physically than its A7 predecessor.

Apple promises the battery life for the new iPhone 6 will be equal or better than the 5s. It will do up to 14 hours of talk time. Aside from the regular GSM calling, it supports VoLTE (Voice Over LTE) and Wi-Fi calling (for T-Mobile in teh US and EE in the UK). LTE has been updated to support up to 150Mbps downlink (Cat. 4) and supports up to 20 bands.

Other connectivity upgrades include Wi-Fi 802.11ac for three times faster Wi-Fi speeds. Finally, there's also NFC now, which enables Apple's new Apple Pay service for wireless payments.

The M8 co-processor succeeds the M7 and is coupled with a barometer. The two accurately track changes in elevation and can even count the steps you've taken.

The Apple iPhone 6 will cost $199 for the base 16GB model (with two-year contract). There's no 32GB model this year, $299 buys you 64GB instead and there's a $399 128GB version. Pre-orders start on September 12, the phones will ship on the 19th.

Apple officially announces the iPhone 6 Plus with a 5.5" display

Tags: Apple, iOS

The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is now official. It's built around a 5.5" IPS LCD display with an Retina HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels or, in other words 1080p). The pixel density is 400 ppi and iOS 8 has been tweaked to take full advantage of the larger display.

The back of the iPhone 6 Plus is made of anodized aluminum and the stainless steel frame of the phone ensures its rigidity.

The user interface has been optimized to take advantage of the larger screen and offers split-screen mode in several apps like earlierleaks suggested.

The new 64-bit A8 chip that powers the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is built using the 20nm manufacturing process. Thanks to this it's more power efficient, while still offering 25% more CPU power and 50% GPU boost.

The iPhone 6 Plus supports 20 LTE bands, but only 150Mbps cat4 LTE, rather than the latest 300Mbps Cat 6. On the positive side the phablet comes with VoLTE and Wi-Fi 802.11ac, which promises 3x faster Wi-Fi compared to the iPhone 5s. Wi-Fi calling is also a new feature, which will work on T-Mobile in the US and EE in the UK.

Further on, the iPhone 6 Plus packs NFC, another first for the company. Thanks to it, you'll be able to make payments by using Apple Pay - Apple's own NFC payment system.

At the back, the iPhone 6 Plus uses a 8MP iSight camera with a True Tone dual LED flash. The pixel size is slightly larger than the iPhone 5s at 1.5μ and the aperture is f/2.2. Most importantly, the iPhone 6 Plus has an optical image stabilization - a first for the company.

There's phase-detection autofocus that should improve focusing speed twice. It is part of the A8 chip, which also includes powerful image signal processor designed by Apple.

The Apple iPhone 6 Plus camera records 1080p video at 30 and 60fps. There's a slow-mo shooting available, too, at 240fps, but its resolution hasn't been specified.

The Apple iPhone 6 Plus will start at $299 for the 16GB version, while the 64GB and 128GB will retail for $399 and $499, respectively.

iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders commence on September 12 and shipments being a week later, on September 19.

Apple slashes old iPhone prices, iPhone 5c is now free, 5s - $99

Tags: Apple, iOS

As customary after announcing a new flagship Apple has lowered the prices of the old generation iPhones. The extent of the cut is familiar as well - $100 off the price.

The base 8GB flavor of the iPhone 5c now costs $0 on contract, while the 16GB iPhone 5s will set you back $99.

gsmarena_001.jpg

There is nothing yet on the contract-free prices, but we guess they should be getting a price cut as well once the Apple Store is back online.

Apple Watch - square sapphire display, gold option
09 September, 2014 | Comments (47) | Post your comment

Tags: Apple, iOS

One more thing! The Apple Watch is real – with a square screen and comes in 38mm and 42mm cases. There will be an 18 karat gold version but more affordable stainless steel and aluminum versions will be available too. The steel version will be called Watch Sport, the gold one will be Watch Edition.

All will have changeable wristbands, ceramic backs and sapphire screens. Six different bands will be available at launch.

gsmarena_002.jpg

The screen will not be always-on, it activates when you lift your wrist. The Glances feature lets you can swipe through pages of information on the touchscreen (hello, Android Wear).

The touch-screen is force-sensitive and you can add custom gestures (with swipes and presses).

Apple Watch

Alternatively, you can use the digital crown to interact with the watch, including zooming in on the maps application.

Siri will of course work with the Apple Watch. The watch won't have you typing in answers, it will recognize questions from incoming messages and offer appropriate responses. Or you could use Siri for voice dictation.

Yet another way to communicate is with emoji or quick sketches on the touchscreen.

Apple Watch

The watch can monitor your heart rate but relies on the iPhone for GPS positioning (for when you go on a run).

gsmarena_010.jpg

Similar to Android Wear, notifications from your iOS device will just show up on the phone. The upcoming WatchKit will allow developers to create custom apps for the watch too.

A potential killer feature is that it will work with Apple Pay.

The Apple Watch will be charged with a Magsafe wireless adapter. A magnet will guide the charger to just the right place.

The Watch will cost $350 and will be available only in early 2015. iPhone 4S and below owners need not apply.

How is that any different than Galaxy sheep going out to buy the new S# phones? Both devices are overrated and overpriced. The iPhones at least have a notably better build quality...

Oh well, it's pointless to compare one potato with another i guess.

<strong>Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders exceed 4 million in 24h</strong>

Apple unleashed the pre-order campaign for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on September 12 and now the company boasts four million orders have been made in the first 24 hours.

gsmarena_001.jpg

The demand is more than Apple anticipated and as a result, while many people will receive their phones in September as promised, a large number of orders will be delayed to October.

This is a new record for the company, as pre-orders for the iPhone 5s and 5c last year were estimated at around 2.2 million. The iPhone 5's pre-orders reached at 2 million units for the first day of its availability.

On September 19, Apple will start selling the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in its stores, as well as in carrier partner retail locations and through authorized resellers. The first wave of countries comprises of the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK.

The second wave of countries where the two phones will be available on September 26 includes Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

Sammy fans donot line up like hogs on streets and camping for a week like imorons.

samsung preorders donot compare to iphones, iphones always sell more on preorder (mostly cz users are sick of their existing iphones)

since less samsung sales on first week and yet more sold than apple, means sammy users take their time and only upgrade if needed.

also unlike iMonopoly, sammy fans have options of 100s of other brands, HTC, Asus, Nexus, LG, Xaiomi, Motorolla etc, a long list of premium manufacturers. so if they still buy Samsung in large numbers must mean that they product could actually be good.

Plus, Big news now, Samsung is producing a Totally rad desing Samsung premium lineup, Alpha Metal series and the Right edge Curved Display Notes. so there is new build quality and ip certified trend , something new from now on.

PS: i used to be a huge long time samsung user belonging to a samsung and iphone using hardcore family, and now i am by accident on HTC One.. and this is by far the most superior quality hardware phone ever used. the One is actually Literally and indeed ,.. The One.

not going to samsung for a long long time now.

<strong>iPhone 6 Sales Reach a Record 10 Million In Three Days</strong>

Apple sold a record 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones this weekend, the company announced today. The new phones went on sale on Friday, September 19.

The previous record-holder was the iPhone 5 line, which combined to sell 9 million devices during its launch weekend last year. Apple added that sales of the new iPhone 6 models could have been higher if the company was able to meet demand.

Strong performance out of the gate is not much of a surprise, given that the iPhone 6 broke preorder records for Apple, with more than 4 million preorders placed in under 24 hours.

2663474-iphone.jpg

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are now available in the United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. The devices will launch in more than 20 additional countries on September 26, and will be available in a total of 115 countries by the end of 2014.

"Sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded our expectations for the launch weekend, and we couldn't be happier," Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement. "We would like to thank all of our customers for making this our best launch ever, shattering all previous sell-through records by a large margin. While our team managed the manufacturing ramp better than ever before, we could have sold many more iPhones with greater supply and we are working hard to fill orders as quickly as possible."

Apple says the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus represent the "biggest advancements in iPhone history." The standard model sports a 4.7-inch screen, while the Plus features a 5.5-inch screen; both are Retina HD displays. In addition, both iPhone 6 models run on Apple's proprietary A8 chip that promises "blazing fast performance." They also work with Apple Pay, the company's new payment option, and feature the iOS 8 update.

The iPhone 6 begins at $199 for a 16 GB model, while the Plus starts at $299 for a 16 GB model. Those prices are assuming you lock in for a two-year contract.
