Unveiling iPhone 6

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News


iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus 

Unveiling the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

So what’s my first impression? Definitely getting one for myself. But not the iPhone 6 Plus just yet. My primary target is the iPhone 6 and I must say that though the features are not as innovative as we expected from Apple but it’s a massive improvement from the previous model iPhone 5s.

Their motto “Bigger Than Bigger” says it all. I’m not sure how many of you stayed up to watch the Key Note address by team Apple but they always know how to put on a great show and I’m pretty sure some followed the announcement last night. I remember Debbie Too’s rant on previous announcements or key notes made by Tim Cook were pretty disappointing when iPhone 5 and 5s were announced back then. This is because we always expected some thing better or some thing more innovative from Apple but most of the time it’s just an enhancement from the previous model.

This time round I can safely say that this announcement a few hours ago is also just enhancements of the iPhone 5s hence the motto “Bigger than Bigger”. The screen has increased by 0.7 inches but sadly the screen is not a sapphire-protected screen but uses an ion-strengthened display.

The iPhone 6 is thinner than the 5s so it feels like an air version of the 5s. Now what’s impressive about the iPhone 6 is the camera. Though it still stick to the 8MP sensor, it packs a bigger pixels with detection focus which will result in snappier shots. Even now the camera is able to record at a super slow-motion video at 240fps as compared to the previous model. Awesome!!! This will give me some ideas for my IG videos in the near future too. Can’t wait.

Battery life, well, of course it has improved but not significantly better. I believe it just improved by an hour or so which still comes in handy. Graphics wise its 50% more powerful than the 5s and the new A8 processor is 25% faster than the iPhone 5s’ A7 chip.

Now with the iPhone 6, you are able to use Apple Pay which turns your phone into an e-wallet and you can store all your credit cards inside your phone and yet it is fully secured as it only detects the owner’s fingerprint to make payment. Neat stuff there.

The best part about the iPhone 6, for me, is the storage size options. They have finally introduced the 128GB version for both iPhone 6 and 6 Plus but they have scrapped off the 32GB option entirely. So now both iPhones will come in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB.

The price is out already and you can pre-order from the Apple website. I just checked from Singapore Apple website that you can start your pre-orders on 12th September 2014. You can click here for more details.

Prices for iPhone 6: 16GB $988, 64GB $1,148 and 128GB $1,288

Prices for iPhone 6 Plus: 16GB $1,1148, 64GB $1,288 and 128GB $1,448

Sorry, I didn’t talk much about the iPhone 6 Plus because I’m more interested in the iPhone 6 instead 😀 The images taken from the screen shots of Apple.com

Apple Watch 

Now next is the Apple Watch. Yes, people might be ranting that the Pebble watch came in first and Samsung also introduced their own first of a smart watch. But hey, Apple has hit the mark this time by making the watch pretty sleek and innovative at the same time. Judging from the key note presentation, the Apple Watch will be a big hit among consumers and I don’t know where to start with the Apple Watch. It seems revolutionary and the things the watch is able to do is quite interesting.

I just love how the interface works on the Apple Watch and though the screen is small (since it’s a watch), it still able to make the interface user friendly and the dial of the Appel Watch called the “crown” makes navigation much simpler. I guess it is true what Tim Cook said last night that this is the most personal Apple product to date and it will have an impact on our daily lives.

The thing is I don’t sport a watch apart from the Garmin watch if I do my runs. I’m not a watch person even. But with this interesting Apple Watch, I might have a change of heart of wearing a watch. However, the Apple Watch will only be released early 2015.

I won’t be talking in depth about the Apple Watch but you can click here to find out more and what it does. Awesome!!
