The glass of the iPhone 6 is made of lon-strengthened glass, which is curved around the sides for a seamless swiping experience.

Display

The LCD screen has Retina HD, which means a display of 750×1,334 pixels. The pixel density comes to 326 ppi.

Camera

The camera is the popular iSight camera with 8MP. But unlike Note 4 which has Optical Image Stabilization, this one has digital stabilization.  While Apple’s camera did get flak compared to the performance of Samsung Galaxy and Sony Xperia Z series,  the iphone makers say that the camera can take high quality pictures with phase detection autofocus technology and a f/2.2 aperture. It can also take panoramic images up to 43 MP.  The video resolution is 1080p at 60 fps, which is an upgrade over the earlier 720mp.  iPhone 6 can also shoot slow-motion videos at 120 fps and 240fps at low resolution.

Body

The outer-body of the phone is made of aluminum with stainless steel Apple logo embossed on it. The power button on the iPhone 6 is on the side. There is also a barometer sensor to decipher relative elevation.

Processor

The iPhone 6 is powered by the Apple A8 processor, which is a second generation chipset; it is 50 percent more energy efficient compared to its predecessor, the A7.  The 64-bit CPU architecture in the A8 processor is 20 times quicker in processing applications and 50 percent swifter in sifting through graphics compared to A7.

Data speed

The Wi-FI speeds of iPhone 6 are much better than iPhone 5s at 802.11 ac.  The device will support more than 200 LTE carriers, across the world.  The phone has a lot of quality fitness apps that include the iphone 6 barometer to sense air pressure for relative elevation, the m8 coprocessor can measure motion data from compass, gyroscope and accelerometer.

Battery Life

The iPhone battery which has been the bane of the brand has some good news for their fan boys. The battery life of iPhone 6 can deliver 14 hours of talk-time and work for 10 hours if the user is working on the net on 3G and 4G networks.

No more 32 GB model for iphones

It is interesting to note that Apple has done away with the 32 GB variant for iPhone 6. Both come in 16, 64 and 128 GB variants.

Price

When tied with telecom carriers, the iPhone 6 will be available at $199, $299 and $399 respectively on the three variants on a 2 year contract.  The iPhone 6 plus, understandably, is more expensive than iphone 6. Check out the price of iphone 6 plus.  With the announcement of the two models, the price of iPhone 5S has reduced and is available on $99 on a 2 year contract while iPhone 5C is free.

 Apple Pay

Apple has transitioned into the sphere of mobile payment with the feature known as Apple Pay. The new iphones will have secure chips with NFC functionality,  you can take a snapshot of your credit card and it can do the work for you. It has tied up with more than 22,000 retailers for Apple Pay, which includes McDonalds, Subway, Macy’s, Wallgreens, Bloomingdales and Wallgreens.
