Let's face it....even #TeamiPhone loyalists were disappointed with the release of the iPhone 5S. FINALLY Apple has done a complete overhaul!
Behold the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus!
Burst Selfie lets you shoot 10 images per second
Finally an update to the iPhone front-facing camera we can use!!!
The iPhone 6 and it's larger counterpart the iPhone 6 Plus also comes a new feature called Burst Selfie mode.
Here how it works. Just hold you finger down on the photo button and your phone will take 10 photos per second. You also get blink and smile detection which helps your iPhone select the best shot for you!
There's even a self timer that ranges from 3 to 10 seconds.
For years we've been hearing about the death of the traditional wallet. Will Apple Pay be the nail in the coffin? Well I guess we'll find out this October when it rolls out!
Apple Pay is partnering with American Express, Master Card, and Visa. You can multiple card data, which doesn't get uploaded to Apple servers, offering a secure method of payment.
And since i'm that girl who always forgets her wallet but never leaves home without her phone....this is going to be amazing for me!
Below are a few merchants who have already signed on to accept Apple Pay...Starbucks anyone?
So Apple Watch is now a reality...the perfect accessory to your iPhone. You can send customized emojis, your heartbeat or even drawings to your friends. The watch comes in three styles and will hit stores in early 2015.
Apple is also offering new color cases in leather and silicone for both phone sizes, including one for (RED), the AIDS awareness charitable endeavor Apple has long supported. Leather cases (black, soft pink, olive brown, midnight blue and red) start at $49 for the iPhone 6 Plus, while silicone cases (black, blue, pink, green, white and red) start at $39.via
Android devices have been doing this for awhile.....predictive text...and we're not talking about #AutoCorrectFails
The new texting feature will have a bar above the keyboard that shows you words that you’re likely to use to respond to certain incoming texts, or words you’re likely about to type as you type.
The more you use it, the more your iPhone will learn about the way you text.
You'll also be able to use apps like Swype to spell by swiping your finger. via
Heart rate, calories burned, blood sugar, cholesterol —Apple's new Health app gives you an easy‑to‑read dashboard of your health and ﬁtness data.
Developers will have access to a HealthKit, which will allows independent fitness apps ﬁtness apps to work together!
Worried about people stealing your personal info? Good news! When your phone is locked with a passcode or Touch ID, all of your health and fitness data in the Health app is encrypted.
Whether you prefer a phone or a phablet Apple is giving you options! The iPhone 6 breaks away from the 4-inch screen of models past designed with a slightly larger 4.7-inch screen.
The iPhone 6 Plus is basically a phablet, or phone-tablet like the 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The iPhone 6 starts at $199 while the iPhone 6 Plus will run you at least $299 for the 16GB version. via
