Brace yourselves; the Apple fanboys are coming. And boy, do they have reason to rejoice!

Until you piece together a mastermind plot to rob the nearest bank so as to actually be able to afford one of these glitzy pieces, here’s a cheatsheet that’ll tell you all need to know about Apple’s latest outing:



Curves are back! If curvey ain’t your thing, tough luck ‘coz the new range of iPhones have resurrected the original iPhone’s half-curved edge around the back and are being shipped as Apple’s slimmest iPhones yet! Glory be.







With Retina HD Display and 1080p HD Display for its older brother, the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has finally cottoned onto the resolution wars, although its failure to qualify in the Quad HD display stakes means that the Android fanboys still have something to smirk about.


iOS 8

You heard about it in June and now you can now finally get your hands on it. Combine Apple’s OS upgrade with the 50% increase in graphics power and the fanboys indeed have something to be happy about. Hello there, next level mobile gaming!



So where exactly is your swanky new iPhone going to draw its horsepower from? Packed under the hood is the all-new A8 chip, the Cupertico – based giant’s second-gen 64-bit offering that’ll keep your smartphone well-fed and happy.


Apple Pay

While he was at it, Tim Cook also decided to wage war against plastic cards and wallets by introducing Apple Pay by coupling the iPhone’s swanky new NFC antennae with a TouchID fingerprint sensor, or as they say in plain English, you can now make money transactions with a simple swipe of your finger.



Your new iPhone camera can now hold its head high among the zippier Sony Xperias; iPhone 6 and 6 Plus has been gifted with an advanced autofocus sensor titled ‘Focus Pixels,’ a feature that DSLR users, who don’t buy their cameras solely for the profile picture possibilities, will be familiar with. 



A quick peep under the hood proves that the good news doesn’t end there – Apple’s latest offering brings to the table 80 hours of audio, 14 hours of video, 2 4hours of talk time and 16 days of standby courtesy its non-removable Li-Po1810 mAh battery.



For all those vainly bickering that size doesn’t matter, the iPhone 6 clocks in 4.7 inches diagonally while the iPhone 6 Plus extends to 5.5 inches diagonally, thus making Apple an official entrant in the slim smartphones stakes.







The best part though remains that the new iPhone not only feels lighter in your hand, it will leave your wallets considerably lighter as well – The iPhone 6 is expected to retail in Indian markets at a whopping INR 60,000 for the 16 GB version, while the 64GB model will set you back by 85 grand.



While word isn’t out yet on when Indian retailers will begin stocking the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, booking is expected to open in the States this Friday and will go on the shelves on September 19, so the time to start buttering up your cousins in America would be now.
