Apple iPhone 6 Preview

Apple has announced two new iPhones for 2014. The iPhone 6 is the more affordable of the two, costing $100 less than the iPhone 6 Plus for each available internal storage configuration. The biggest differences are that the iPhone 6 does not include optical image stabilization, has a smaller 4.7-inch Retina display, and a shorter battery life.

Otherwise, the iPhone features the same A8 chip with 64-bit architecture, M8 motion coprocessor, optional 128GB hard drive, and an upgraded iSight Camera as its larger sibling.

Along with upgrades in storage capabilities and processing speed, the new iSight Camera boasts an improved 8MP BSI CMOS image sensor capable of recording Full 1080p HD video at 60 frames-per-second (and slow motion video at up to 240fps at lower resolutions). The five-element lens has an f/2.2 aperture, Auto image stabilization, Auto HDR, Exposure Control, Burst Mode, time-lapse video capabilities, and the ability to take Panoramas as large as 43 megapixels [<-- not a typo].
