Though Apple’s cameras have known to be quite sturdy and efficient yet they have seen little revolution over the years and the excitement which is now demanded by customers was missing from the camera setup till iPhone 5s. But since we all know that Apple does bring improvement with every new phone, the iPhone 6 is sure to receive a bump and it is going to feature a 10-megapixel variety, with f/1.8 aperture and will feature better optical image stabilization (OIS) and faster autofocus.
The front panel of the phone was recently leaked and it suggested that the front is going to look somewhat like the 5s but since the screen is quite large, it manages to look different.
This one particular feature has established itself quite a lot in the first few months of its existence and now we are expecting a few customary improvements to iPhone 6 Touch ID fingerprint sensor, with better "efficiency" having been mentioned in several reports. How Apple is bringing this efficiency and increased functionality is still not confirmed.
According to Analyst Timothy Arcuri , the iPhone 6 is going to sport a Gigabit Wi-Fi standard which is going to increase the hotspot connectivity by making it faster and if we consider how important being connected is at all times, this is one of the most useful of all the developments in the iPhone. We have all heard of the iWatch and we expect it to be something big because Apple surely wants to compete with the Samsung Gear 2, Pebble Smartwatch and many others which have already made their presence in the market.
The wearable device is going to be connected to the iPhone 6, thus making better use of it with the iOS 8. We saw the heart rate sensor on the Galaxy S5 and knew instantly that Apple wouldn’t stay behind for long and here it is – all set for the iPhone 6. The users of the iPhone 6 are also going to benefit from the NFC feature which will allow them to make limited payments and don’t forget the accessories. From the past few weeks we have a great deal of leaks which showcased the iPhone 6 dummies and in numerous instances we saw these dummies against other rival smartphones and one of the most important comparisons was with the Galaxy S5 which appears to be the main competitor here.
These leaks showed us the 4.7 inch version because the 5.5 inch phablet is likely to make its way next year. On top of all this is the iOS 8 which comes with its own set of multiple features which are just going to make the iPhone 6 all the more interesting. The WWDC was majorly all about the new iOS and the excitement was all about he dedicated iTunes Radio app, the aforementioned Healthbook app and the Siri in iOS 8 which will natively identify songs, with the song recognition engine being powered by Shazam.
As we mentioned earlier, the 4.7 inch version will arrive earlier than the phablet. It is hopefully going to be announced in September along with a couple of other big releases from Apple. At this point there has been no mention of any price but it is expected that Apple will increase the price by at least $100 and we all agree that this will be justified completely.
