Those Ap­ple lovers who have been hop­ing for a larger screen, your prayers have been an­swered. The new iPhone 6 comes with a 4.7 inch screen, larger than stan­dard Ap­ple screens, while the iPhone 6 Plus sports an un­prece­dented 5.5 inch dis­play, ush­er­ing Ap­ple into the un­char­tered ‘ph­ablet' ter­ri­tory. The slim, 0.27 inch thick iPhone 6 with its Retina HD dis­play comes in three colours – gold, sil­ver, and space grey – and also sports an 8-megapixel iSight cam­era. Another long-awaited fea­ture is the in­clu­sion of NFC with an en­tire mo­bile pay­ment sys­tem built around it (how­ever, the NFC can't be used for other pur­poses like trans­fer­ring data). The iPhone 6 Plus has a higher res­o­lu­tion screen and also op­ti­cal im­age sta­bil- isa­tion in the cam­era which helps steady a shaky hand.

De­spite the prob­lems with the new iOS8 and sto­ries of iPhone 6 Plus bend­ing within a few days' use, Ap­ple fans thronged Villaggio shop­ping mall where the two lat­est edi­tions went on sale at the Voda­fone store at ex­actly one minute after mid­night on Septem­ber 27. The crowds re­port­edly didn't sub­side till 3 a.m. The tele­com op­er­a­tor an­nounced plenty of of­fers along with the new phones like free data plans on the 4G net­work for both its pre­paid and Red cus­tomers. Ad­di­tion­ally, ten lucky cus­tomers had their mo­bile phone bill waived for an en­tire year. Oore­doo also made the phones avail­able for cus­tomers across its stores on the same day.
