The latest iPhone, the iPhone 6, finally has enough significant changes that an upgrade is worth it. Past iPhone versions would often tweak only a few minor things in the phone. However, the iPhone 6 will have plenty of new features that will make the price sound bearable.
Apple’s newest iPhone is scheduled to be released in September. The new phone has been rumored to be a “fit phone” as it is including features like a heart-rate monitor and a barometer. The heart-rate monitor on the new iPhone 6 will include a heart sensor to monitor the phone owner’s heart. The phone will hold on to this information and use it to confirm identification when performing important tasks such as depositing money into a bank account via iPhone. The heart rate information can also be used to protect very important documents kept by the user on the iPhone, ensuring the safety of those documents by not allowing anyone else to access them.
The iPhone 6 will feature a barometer. This tool will allow users to measure altitude or temperatures. This feature will be especially useful to those Apple users that enjoy the outdoors for hiking or other activities. The barometer will also include weather updates as well as air pressure information. Some may argue that there are already apps on the iPhone that can measure altitude, however those apps are not as accurate as the new barometer which will incorporate motion tracking information. Air pressure sensors will be especially useful to those who work in fields such as piloting and biking. The air pressure feature will track weather and notify the user of any upcoming weather related emergencies. This feature along with others show that the iPhone 6 has significant enough changes that will make it worth the upgrade.
One of the most exciting new features the new iPhone 6 will feature is its use of smart notifications and alarms. The new iPhone will be able to gather data from the user’s accessories, such as the wristband, to track the owner of the phone’s activity level. According to the data acquired from the user’s activity level, the iPhone can then set alarms and notifications based on the user’s activity and sleep behavior.
The iPhone 6 will have a bigger screen that previous iPhone generations. The iPhone 6 will feature iOS 8, scheduled to be released in September. The larger screen of the new iPhone will be sapphire-scratch resistant crystal displays. There have been plenty of rumors regarding Apple’s new iPhone 6, and some may be true but others may be held for another version. Rumors of the new iPhone being waterproof, solar-powered, or charged wirelessly are still just rumors. Apple has not confirmed any of those features.
Apple will also be including a smartwatch. This watch will include a slight rectangular design, with a 2.5 inch screen. The iWatch was rumored to be released in October. The watch is said to feature possibly 10 functions. Those functions will include a heart rate monitor as well as a glucose monitor.
The new thin design of the iPhone 6 from Apple is exciting buyers everywhere. The new functions that are to be featured on the iPhone 6 are significantly different from past versions and the changes are making it worth the upgrade. The information that has been released for this new phone has all been taken very well by consumers, showing that the iPhone 6 is likely to be another success from Apple. Buyers will wait anxiously for the release of the new iPhone, as it has promised to not disappoint.
