NEW iPHONE OUT IN STORES
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus bring the whole Apple experience onto a bigger screen.
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.
