According to Apple, the iPhone 6 is not simply bigger, it’s better in every way.
It is dramatically thinner, more powerful and power efficient. Apple states it has created a new generation of iPhone that is better by any measure.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were both big news around Skyline, yet only a few people in the school have one. Secretary Amy Swonger is one of the lucky ones. She got her iPhone 6 because she had an upgrade and her lock button on her iPhone 4s was broken.
“The government plan at the school motivated me to get the iPhone 6 Plus because I get $100 credit towards the upgrade, so it makes my cost way more reasonable,” math teacher Kim Lee said.
There are many new features on the iPhones, but the most obvious is the screen size is enlarged. The iPhone 6 Plus’s width is 3.06 inches instead of 2.31 inches like the 5s. Band instructor Bob Lee especially likes the new size.
Besides, he says, “I just like having the latest and greatest.”
Kim also likes the bigger size as it is halfway between an iPad and her old iPhone 5.
“I’m always carrying around my iPad and iPhone, and now that I have the 6 Plus I don’t have to carry both.”
The iPhone 6 has a new style of design which is more rounded than the previous iPhones. However, Apple doesn’t usually change a lot in the way it performs. If you know how to use one, you probably know how to use them all.
“Apple is taking a lot of heat from people because they are taking a lot of features from Android and putting them into an Apple product,” Tony Marquez, Electronics Associate at Wal-Mart said.
Consumers must be happy with the product though, because Apple sold 39.2 million phones in the first nine days of sales.
