This year’s Apple event was one of the most anticipated events of the year, and yet again Apple did not disappoint. For the past year, Apple fans were left wondering how Apple could possibly top the iPhone 5S, and yes Apple has done it again.

Apple released two new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, both iPhones are dramatically thinner than the iPhone 5S. As compared to the iPhone 5S with a thickness of 7.6mm, the new iPhones put it to shame. The iPhone 6 is merely 6.9mm and the iPhone 6 Plus is just a tad thicker at 7.1mm.

Not only are the new phones thinner but also feature a new HD Retina display. iPhone 6 users can enjoy the beautiful display through the ion-strengthened seamless piece of cover glass, which was created using a precision polishing process. The display can be appreciated on a much wider screen, the iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch display and the iPhone 6 Plus with a 5.5-inch display.

These new phones are powered by the Apple-designed A8 chip which has up to 25% faster processing power and up to 50% faster graphics. This simply means that the processor is now 50 times faster and the graphics are a whopping 84 times faster than the original iPhone.

Yes, the new phones are faster than ever but what about battery life? Not to worry, the iPhone 6 is up to 50% more energy efficient so you can have higher sustained performance.
