D-Day as expected has finally arrived as the new iPhone 6 is finally released. Various leaks and rumors were there about this new iPhone. It even happened twice, since Apple took the opportunity to release this iPhone 6 Plus.
Do you want to know everything about the iPhone 6 and iWatch? Well you will be served today as there was the Apple press conference. The conference was rich since three devices were released over there: iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple watch .Firstly, I am starting with the anatomy of an iPhone 6:
Firstly we want to start with the iPhone 6. We covered a large part of it, even though we also had some doubts about the other areas of the presentation. This new Smartphone is proving very similar to previous leaks, namely the unibody shell with thinner metal than the iPhone 5S, with round edges. The shell is 6.9 mm thick with a total weight of 129 grams (ie lighter than the iPhone 5C).
All surrounding a 4.7-inch IPS display. You will notice that the screen of the iPhone 6 is a bit beyond the frame. Maybe, it will be more fragile. No details have been clarified on materials that protect the slab. The definition of the slab is 1334 x 750 resolutions for “Retina HD” 326 dpi, a figure that does not change. The contrast is greatly improved while the brightness is the same.
Anatomy of an iPhone 6 : A8 chipset
An A8 chipset which has not revealed all its secrets.The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are equipped with A8 chipset, still on 64-bit architecture and always accompanied by a coprocessor M8, for managing sensors, accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, proximity, light and now barometer. One of the novelties of this iPhone 6 is that it will include the applications for health and fitness. A8 chipset would also have a new co-processor for digital imaging.
Of course, Apple does not go into the details of the composition of the A8 chipset, some rumors saying that it is still a dual-core only. This would ultimately be not surprising. The Cupertino Company believes that the A8 chipset is 25% faster than the A7 for applications and 50% more powerful for graphics. It also consumes 50% less energy. These figures can be achieved simply by reducing the fine engraving chipset, which was made in partnership with Samsung and TSMC, since the chipset is engraved logically in 20 nm.
Anatomy of an iPhone 6:NFC integrated and fastest 4G:
The chipset naturally supports LTE. According to Apple, LTE class A8 is greater than that of A7. But how? We thought on an LTE Category 4 to 150 Mb per second. Always on connectivity networks, as we mentioned in a previous article that the iPhone 6 has acWiFi and NFC, accessories with it also compatible which is accompanied by Apple Pay, which we will also return. The iPhone 6 is also compliant VoLTE (for calls 4G) and Wi-Fi Calling. Touch ID is naturally present.
Anatomy of an iPhone 6: Picture and Video:
Picture is a big disappointment. Apple has not radically changed its equipment. iPhone 6 has remained on the same basis and optimized technologies already captured in the iPhone 5 / 5C. It always has an iSight sensor backlit, 8-megapixel rear camera, each pixel measuring 1.5 microns, protected by sapphire crystal with an aperture of f / 2.2. The design is carried out by a new technology called Focus Pixels with legacy of professional photography. The main sensor has a digital stabilizer and capture Full HD videos up to 30 to 240 frames per second. The iPhone 6 wins autofocus and image stabilization in video.
Side facade, the FaceTime camera is 1.2 megapixel model with the aperture of f / 2.2. Again, Apple promises for improvements such as burst mode and HDR video compatibility. However, technically its FaceTime sensor is the same as the previous year. The biggest change this year will be in the image processing, rendering images with the new rendering engine and editing. We expected a 13 megapixels but this will not happen for this year.
Still many points to mention:
No details on the battery are there although Apple promised that it has improved battery from 10% to 20% depending on the usage. No details either on the RAM. We find a Lightning port for connectivity, the headphones classic EarPods,
From the software point of view, no surprise. The iPhone iOS 6 directly is embedded. We found some improvements in iMessages, predictive keystroke, the Health application, the new notification center, Touch ID for third party applications, etc. Needless to reconsider all of its details as major new developments about the iPhone 6 Plus were not presented at WWDC.
So interested? For the impatient, know that the iPhone 6 will go on sale on Friday, September 19 in three colors of the iPhone 5S in which Apple’s major market in France.It will take pre-order from next Friday on 12 September.
