Bigger Phones


The Apple event was held on Tuesday 9th September. At this event the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were unveiled. Two new phones, as predicted. 

The iPhone 6 has a 4.7inch display (just like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha or the HTC One) and its dimensions are: 

Height = 138.1 mm (5.44 inches) 
Width = 67.0 mm (2.64 inches) 
Depth = 6.9 mm (0.27 inches) 
Weight = 129 grams (4.55 ounces) 



The iPhone 6 Plus has a massive 5.5inch display and its dimensions are: 



Height = 158.1mm (6.22 inches) 
Width = 77.8mm (3.06 inches) 
Depth = 7.1mm (0.28 inches) 
Weight = 172 grams (6.07 ounces) 


With an A8 chip (computer stuff inside) the phone is now 25% faster, 50% better graphics and 50% more efficient. That means that it can do internet stuff without slowing down, maybe. A new M8 processor (more intelligent computer stuff) enables the iPhone 6 to track data such as the steps you're taking and your elevation (whether you went up some stairs). The new Health app makes it far easier to keep track of your activity, great if you love to keep track of what exercise you've been doing. 


Camera 


The 8mp iSight camera is enabled with improved face detection, image stabilisation (stops the wobbling when filming) and burst mode on the FaceTime camera. Improved slo-mo and time-lapse so you can capture fantastic looking slowed-down videos or time-lapse videos too.

Apple Pay 


Apple announced a new payment system at their event but rather than go into details I will say it's not coming to the UK for the foreseeable future. It does look cool and futuristic but, as usual, we'll just have to wait. 

I did order a new iPhone 6 and am hoping it will arrive tomorrow (Friday 19th September). I will be spending lots of time taking photos, playing and checking how everything works over the weekend and intend to write a review next week. 

You can find the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at the Apple Store



One more thing... 


At the event Tim Cook used a classic Steve Jobs line. One more thing... 

The Apple Watch, previously thought to be called the iWatch. This amazing piece of technology had me drooling. Mesmerised by its shiny metal and soft looking leather straps I stared on. I have never wanted a watch more! 

Not only is this device beautiful but Apple have utilised the side dial as a digital input for the watch which they call the Digital Crown. By twisting it you can zoom in and out of the home screen, zoom in on photos or scroll through lists. Underneath the Digital Crown is another button which, when pressed, brings up a list of your favourite contacts. 

Again the health and fitness angle was a big thing and Apple came up with a ring system that gives reminders to get you up and moving. You can set goals, track your daily activity and heart rate and it will even measure the calories you're burning. 

The Apple Watch will be available in two sizes, 38mm (height) and 42mm (height). There are 3 collections: Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition. All different in their own way and each with customizable straps. 

The only news for when this awesome device will be available to buy is Early 2015, who knows what that means. 

I could go on and on about these devices but I won't, this post is long enough already. All that's left to say is the best bit (I literally screamed!) was when I saw this... 



Yep, that's a dancing Mickey Mouse watch face! OMG I want one NOW!!!

  1. Oh my it all sounds really high tech - seriously advanced - what next?? I can't be trusted with fancy phones, I dropped a brand new HTC One down the loo two months into a 24m contract earlier this year :( #PoCoLo

    1. Oh no! I've done that before but it was a cheap android phone I had at the time. A few years ago I dropped my iPhone 3G and smashed the screen. I was distraught! I did manage to get it fixed without much hassle though. I'm more careful these days. Was the HTC One dead after the loo trip? Sometimes it is possible to save them.

  2. It sounds great! I do love all of the technology that keeps on making an appearance and I really love my iPhone (I used to be a Nokia girl!). Thanks for linking to PoCoLo :) x
