The new Apple iPhone 6 is still three months away from being revealed to the public, but tech blogs are already buzzing with leaks, rumours, and photos. The latest addition to Cupertino’s definitive line of smartphones is sure to set new sales records despite reports, according to Apples’ own numbers, of stagnating iPhone sales. Though Apple responded to this slowdown — and Samsung’s global dominance of smartphone sales — with the release of the less expensive 5C back in September of 2013, this year’s device will introduce new and exciting features.
A source recently told Venture Beat about some of the new features the Apple iPhone 6 has in store. If the source is reliable, then some of these specs should help put paid to widespread criticisms about Apple withholding technology just to squeeze out a few more models. At the very least, users clamouring for significant upgrades will not be disappointed.
Big-screened Samsung models will have a rival in the iPhone 6, with versions offering 4.7” and 5.5” displays and a higher pixel density than the iPhone 5 (441 ppi vs. 326 ppi). The bezels are also reportedly thinner, making visible screen sizes even larger. The 6’s camera is also expected to be upgraded from 8 to 10 megapixels.
Some pedestrian tech upgrades are expected, including faster Internet speeds, better Wi-Fi, improved battery life (ha!), more memory, and sharper displays. Then there are game-changers, like being able to charge your phone without having to plug it in. While the first stage in wireless charging doesn’t mean you can simply channel a nearby Tesla coil to top yourself up, it does make a physical charger redundant. Like the Droid Maxx and LG G2, the iPhone 6 will most likely include a charging pad. While more cumbersome than a typical wired charger, charging pads are expected to be cross-platform, meaning it will charge any enabled device. I see a future of public charging pads on trains and in planes, cafés, and bars, as well as bedside tables.
The iPhone 6 will feature Apple’s new operating system, which promises to make your phone the hub of your digital life. Is this a thinly veiled ploy to get non-iPhone-owning Mac users to break down and buy one? In any case, who wouldn’t want to be able to tell Siri to turn off the downstairs lights when they’re in bed? The future is all about the iCloud.
Near Field Communication has been an expected technology in iPhones since the iPhone 5. NFC is a short-range communication technology that uses radio waves. While slower that Bluetooth, NFC consumes far less battery power and doesn’t need to be paired with another device. The introduction of NFC will probably involve Apple getting in on the wireless mobile payment racket, as Google has with Google Wallet for Android. Yes, your iPhone is now your debit card.
With up to 300 mbps, the iPhone 6 doubles the LTE radio speeds of the iPhone 5, which translates to much faster data speeds when you’re browsing and downloading on your mobile phone network.
Of course, there is no guarantee as to what features the new iPhone 6 will pack upon release in September. There may be a few surprises as well.
French tech site nowhereelse.fr recently posted pics of the profile and back panel of the iPhone 6. Previous leaks from a source at Foxconn showing surface designs and a photo of a possible greenish shell have also been published. However the new iPhone looks, we’re sure it will turn plenty of heads and empty many a wallet.
