Apple has significantly improved the camera on the iPhone 6, allowing for recording of HD video, slo-mo and time lapse shots. The 8MP camera sensor includes Apple’s Focus Pixels and face detection, optical image stabilization, exposure control and panorama mode. The front-facing camera has been improved, allowing for HD when Facetiming with family and friends.
Wireless has been beefed up on the new iPhones, resulting in 3x faster wi-fi speeds than previous iPhone models via 802.11ac support. VoLTE is now supported, as well as support for a total of 20 LTE bands. Apple claims the devices can deliver download speeds of up to 150Mbps, but that all depends on what speeds your wireless carrier offers. Touch ID is on board, as well as the long sought after NFC capabilities.
Pricing for the new iPhones begins at $199 and will come in 16, 64 and 128GB variants with color options which include Space Gray, Silver and Gold.
