iPhone 6 Plus
The iPhone 6 Plus is a larger version of the iPhone 6 that fits into the increasingly popular phablet category. Apple announced the new iPhone 6 Plus along with the smaller iPhone 6 on September 9, 2014.
While both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are larger in size than previous generation iPhones, the iPhone 6 Plus offers a new "Retina HD" 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels in comparison to the iPhone 6, which features a 4.7-inch display with 1334x750 resolution. Both devices also feature a Sapphire glass front that curves slightly around the edge and that is claimed to be shatterproof and water-resistant.
Features in the iPhone 6 Plus
Some of most publicized features in the iPhone 6 Plus include support for the new iOS 8 operating system, which includes the new Apple Pay mobile payments service (along with a Near Field Communication antenna for long-awaited NFC support), an A8 64-bit processor, an enhanced 8MP iSight camera, and support for 150 Mbps LTE as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Calling.
Like the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus also works seamlessly with the new Apple Watch wearable device that will be available for purchase in early 2015.
Pricing for the iPhone 6 Plus starts at $299 for the 16 GB iPhone 6 Plus model and scales up to $499 for the 128 GB edition. Apple started taking preorders for both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on September 12, 2014, but delivery times for the iPhone 6 Plus were expected to be several weeks to months longer than the regular iPhone 6 version.
