10 reasons to upgrade to the new iPhone 6
Bigger, better and bolder
Scheduled to launch in many countries on September 19 alongside the iPhone 6 Plus, we have put together ten reasons for why you should pre-order the innovative iPhone 6...
1. The screen
The 4-Inch display on your iPhone 5 will feel very small when you compare it to Apple's newest iPhone addition. The new screen on the iPhone 6 measures 4.7-inches diagonally and that of the iPhone 6 Plus is a hefty 5.5-inches across – giving users a new orientation for apps, such as landscape for when you have to write an email.
2. Storage space
With any new model phone comes the expected upgrades, and the iPhone 6 includes a new 128GB storage option, and a faster processor.
3. A family sharing feature
This new feature will let you share your purchased books, films, music and some apps with up to six of your family members – allowing easy watching and listening for the people closest to you.
4. The camera
The cameras on both devices have received an incredible upgrade, with an improved 8MP iSight camera, 1.5µ pixels, ƒ/2.2 aperture, and an all-new sensor. With it's all new sensor, the iPhone 6 focuses faster and better as well, with included features such as faster autofocus, next-generation local tone mapping, and advanced noise reduction.
5. The video camera
Starting with a new Apple-designed video encoder, the iPhone 6 features cinematic video stabilization which leads to making a smoother video, and higher-quality slow-motion capture.
6. The battery life
With all this new hardware Apple had to make its smartphone more energy efficient too. Now the iPhone 6 can last for 14 hours while the iPhone 6 Plus can last for 24 hours without being charged – significantly better than the iPhone 5s, which gets 10 hours before dying.
7. Better graphics
Due to a new processor performance that's 50 times faster than the original iPhone, there are now more than 1.3 million apps available for iPhone, and because of this the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are powered by the Apple-designed A8 chip. In addition, the Apple device is now 50% more energy efficient, giving users graphics 84 times faster than the original iPhone.
8. The Health App in iOS 8
This new app is the perfect companion for all health fanatics or users just trying to live a healthy lifestyle. The app will measure physical activities, like the flights of stairs you climb and more. Third-party apps will also be able to tap into these features. The iPhone 6 even has a barometer that senses air pressure to measure relative elevation – which is ideal for fitness apps.
9. Apple Pay
Replacing your wallet, one credit card at a time, the new Apple Pay combines seamlessly integrated hardware, software, and services in a way only Apple can. And everything you need for Apple Pay is already built into the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
10. More storage for the same price
For the previous iPhones, storage capacity scaled at around Dhs360 price intervals for you to only get from 16GB to 32GB to 64GB. However, with the new iPhone, the storage capacity has jumped from 16GB to 64GB and up to 128GB, and still only Dhs360.
