Ap­ple iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus

If, like us, you had al­ready sold your iPhone 5 in an­tic­i­pa­tion of the post-Key­note value crash then, like us, you’ll be pleased that the iPhone 6 looks rather smash­ing and worth up­grad­ing to. For the first time, there are two sizes to choose be­tween: the 5.5in iPhone 6 Plus with its 1080p res­o­lu­tion and the 4.7in iPhone 6 with 1334x750 pix­els. The dif­fer­ence is not just in the pixel count: iOS 8 will flip be­tween por­trait and land­scape on the big­ger dis­play. We’re also ex­cited about the ‘25% faster’ A8 pro­ces­sor, the im­pres­sive bat­tery life claims and NFC, which ar­rives late but brings with it a swish new con­tact­less pay­ment sys­tem. The 8MP cam­era might not sound like a whole hill of megapix­els, but it’s the new sen­sor and phase de­tec­tion aut­o­fo­cus that mat­ter, and the Plus also gets op­ti­cal sta­bil­i­sa­tion. Lots to watch out for in our full, in-depth guide on p42.
