Not too long ago, I concluded that the iPhone 6 was the “perfect iPhone” because it had just about everything an iPhone user ever wanted from having an upgraded screen, improved camera, OS enhancements, etc which made something already great, better. Factor in the larger screen without the sacrifice of one handed use and you have a winner. But what if you wanted more? What if a 4.7-inch display just wasn’t enough for you? And what if you wanted to have the piece of mind of Optical Image Stabilization on your smartphone camera even though the iPhone 6 does a great job at taking photos already? Well, for a $100 more and the sacrifice of some of your pocket’s real estate, this is where the iPhone 6 Plus comes in.
The Perfect iPhone?
There has been a demand for a bigger iPhone ever since there were bigger smartphones. Apple stuck with their 3.5-inch screens from the very first iPhone in 2007 all the way to the iPhone 4S in 2011.
iPhone 6? iWatch? iOS 8? Apple’s highly anticipated event happening today!
Rumors of the iPhone 6 have started on the day that the iPhone 5S was released, perhaps even longer than that. Talks of a long awaited 4.7-inch screen have circulated the tech world with conceptual designs made by fans along with leaks from China all over the internet weeks before today’s event.
This year might be a little bit different. There has been talk, along with other leaks of a 5.5-inch phabley variant of the iPhone 6 rumored to be named the iPhone 6 Plus. The new iPhones, running iOS 6 would feature sapphire glass, a curvier back, sides, etc much like the iPod Touch and just as thin.
Apple might also catch up to the competition by finally implementing NFC on to their phones enable users to quick mobile payments which they have been working on for awhile.
The iPhone(s) aren’t going to be the only product that will be talked about today. Apple’s smartwatch known as the iWatch will also be unveiled today which is said the be the smart watches that will end all smart watches.
You can watch the event streamed live on Apple’s website or from your iOS device and Apple TV at 10AM PST / 1PM EST.
