The IPhone 6 launched on September 19th, 2014 with the 4.7-inch screen alongside the iPhone 6 Plus, which features a larger 5.5" display. Apple plans on making both models available in over 100 countries by the end of 2014.

Pricing for the iPhone 6 starts at $199 for a 16 GB version. Apple has done away with the 32 GB version altogether and the 64 GB variant now take the mid-range position with a 128 GB option now available. Each step up in storage capacity will cost you $100 more. As always, pricing and availability may vary slightly from country to country.

The iPhone 6 features a 4.7" display with a resolution of 1334 x 750. The pixel count is 326 ppi, which is the same as the iPhone 5s. However, the contrast ratio now sits at 1400:1 which is a drastic improvement over the iPhone 5s' ratio of 800:1. The display also packs duel-domain pixels which allows for wider and better viewing angles.

Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are equipped with Apple A8 64-bit chipsets which also tout a new M8 motion co-processor for even better performance than its predecessors. While Apple hasn't made any mention of RAM, we're going to assume that it sports the same 1GB of RAM as its predecessor until we hear any different.

The rear facing iSight camera in the iPhone 6 has an all new sensor that should handle everyday photography better than ever. HD video recording and slow-mo video have also gotten boosted to 60 fps and 240 fps, respectively. The front-facing FaceTime camera appears to remain largely unchanged.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both feature built-in NFC functionality that will work seamlessly with Apple's new payment system, Apple Pay. This method combines NFC and Touch ID in order to allow you to make payments with your iPhone across thousands of merchants in the United States.

The iPhone 6 features support for up to 20 LTE bands worldwide, Wi-Fi calling, LTE Advanced, VoLTE, and more.

There are a lot of decisions involved when it comes to buying or upgrading to a new phone, even a new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. It's 5.5-inch screen is so much bigger than any previous iPhone that it changes your perception about the iPhone itself. Yes, it’s better  new display technology, second generation 64-bit processor and motion co-processor, improved cameras, faster cellular and Wi-Fi networking, and a new transaction system called Apple Pay. Yet it’s more than that as well.

When Steve Jobs introduced the iPad, he said that in order to for there to be room for a new category of device between the laptop and the phone, that device had to be far better at some key tasks. Its ultra-light form factor had to be more convenient and accessible for more people to use in more places than the laptop. And its bigger screen had to provide for more sophisticated apps and more immersive experiences than the phone.
