The rumours were true: Apple has increased the size of the iPhone and launched two new models: the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. With the company’s new A8 processor controlling things, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus clock in at least 25 percent faster than the iPhone 5s, offering up to 50 percent better battery life and more power for the most intensive 3D games. There’s also an improved M8 motion coprocessor for better fitness tracking, as well as a dedicated “image signal processor” that’ll deliver slower-motion video (up to 240fps) while offering clearer and more vibrant photos (thanks to its new Focus Pixels auto-focusing tech).
Specifications aside, you’re probably wanting to know when both devices will become available and how much they’ll cost. Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will go on general sale from October 23rd, but in keeping with tradition, Vodacom will open pre-orders a little earlier. Come this Friday (October 17th), you’ll be able to secure a new unlocked iPhone for an unspecified amount. While we dig deeper on the official pricing, keep on eye out for Vodacom on Friday to get the latest deets.
