Apple has just unveiled some new and fantastic products that has caught our attention, according to the company’s website , the size of the new, higher-resolution Retina HD displays on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus may be the first thing you notice. But what you experience is so much more. With innovations that deliver higher contrast, dual‑domain pixels for more accurate color at wider viewing angles, and an improved polarizer, these are the thinnest, most advanced Multi‑Touch displays they’ve ever made.

The size of the new, higher-resolution Retina HD displays on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus may be the first thing you notice. But what you experience is so much more. With innovations that deliver higher contrast, dual‑domain pixels for more accurate color at wider viewing angles, and an improved polarizer, these are the thinnest, most advanced Multi‑Touch displays they’ve ever made.

Higher contrast

Rather than using traditional methods to create the higher-resolution Retina HD display, they developed an advanced process of photo alignment. This involves using UV light to precisely position the display’s liquid crystals so they lay exactly where they should. Better-aligned crystals deliver a superior viewing experience, with deeper blacks and sharper text.

Wider-angle viewing

Larger displays make sharing easier. To make sure everyone experiences stunning clarity, the new Retina HD display has dual-domain pixels to enable color accuracy from corner to corner. So movies and photos stay true, even when viewing from wider angles.

Improved polarizer

Your iPhone goes everywhere you do. And sometimes that’s outdoors in the sun. With that in mind, the Retina HD display has an improved polarizer so you get a clearer view when you’re wearing sunglasses.

Everything within reach

By creating iPhone 6 and iOS 8 together, they optimized the software to enhance the physical design. iOS swipe gestures were designed to be more fluid across the seamless form, making it easy to navigate iPhone with one hand. With new features like Reachability you can interact with the larger screen in different ways, too. Simply double touch the Home button and the entire screen shifts down closer to your thumb. And to easily navigate Safari or Mail, swipe left to right across the screen to go backward, or swipe right to left to go forward. With the new continuous surface of iPhone, all your gestures now feel smoother than ever.

They also thought about how you use your iPhone every day and redesigned the buttons to make it even easier to use. Elongated volume buttons are integrated into the thinner profile, outlined to make them effortless to find by touch. And the Sleep/Wake button has a new home on the side of the device to put it comfortably within reach. The result is an experience that’s even more intuitive.

Hugely powerful. Enormously efficient

iPhone 6 features an A8 chip built on second-generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture. Its incredible power is enhanced by an M8 motion coprocessor that efficiently measures your activity from advanced sensors, including a new barometer. So you can do more, for longer periods of time, with better performance and battery life.

A8 chip. High performance that’s highly efficient

The all-new A8 chip is their fastest yet. Its CPU and graphics performance are faster than on the A7 chip, even while powering a larger display and incredible new features. And because it’s designed to be so power efficient, the A8 chip can sustain higher performance — so you can play graphics-intensive games or enjoy video at higher frame rates for longer than ever.

Two billion transistors strong

A8 uses an advanced 20-nanometer process. It’s a remarkably small and efficient chip on which two billion transistors deliver incredible performance with up to 50 percent more energy efficiency than the A7 chip.

Great battery life. Even while powering great new features

iPhone 6 is designed to be incredibly efficient. So you can spend your day taking advantage of all its new features and apps while getting better battery life.

The power behind their most powerful camera

The iSight camera in iPhone 6 features an Apple-designed video encoder and image signal processor built into the A8 chip. They support advanced camera and video features, like new Focus Pixels, better face detection, continuous autofocus, and enhanced noise reduction, so it’s easier to shoot higher-quality photos and videos.

Metal raises the game

To get the greatest graphics performance out of the A8 chip and iOS 8, they introduced Metal — a new technology that lets developers create highly immersive console-style games on iPhone. Metal is optimized to allow the CPU and GPU to work together to deliver detailed graphics and complex visual effects. So every imaginary world you visit will feel much more realistic.

M8 coprocessor. Technology that moves you forward.

When you’re in motion, the M8 motion coprocessor continuously measures data from the accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, and a new barometer. This offloads work from the A8 chip for improved power efficiency. And now those sensors do even more, measuring your steps, distance, and elevation changes.
