If you’ve got a shiny new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus this week, you’ll want to make the most of it by installing the best apps from the App Store’s catalog of over 1.2 million apps.
Did you wait in line this weekend to get your hands on the iPhone 6? We don’t blame you if you did–we’re excited about the device, too. No matter when you finally have the latest and greatest smartphone in your hands, make sure you don’t make the same mistake the first guy in the world to buy the device made. Do not drop your iPhone 6 once you have it out of the box, unless you drop it into the StackSocial iPhone 6 Case and Screen Protector, on sale now from the iPhone Hacks Deals Hub.
With the iPhone 6 being released, we wanted to put both iPhone 6 models head to head and throw in the iPhone 5s for good measure. So we tested the boot up speed, network, opening stock applications, graphically demanding game loading times, and Geekbench scores. Let’s dive in.
The team at iFixit, a website that is best known for providing in-depth hardware teardowns of various products, was on hand for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch in Melbourne, Australia. The team quickly posted a detailed iPhone 6 Plus teardown, and it has now followed up with an iPhone 6 teardown as well.
Apple made a number of improvements to the 8-megapixel iSight camera on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, including an option of recording slow-motion video at 240 frames per second. The results are simply fantastic, and we’ve shared a demonstration video of slow-mo wine pouring ahead that you should watch.
