iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus – Finally Detailed
After a rocky start where Chinese dubbing went over the audio on the live stream, we finally heard the features that would make it onto the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus – a larger model with a bigger screen. Here’s a list of the features, straight to the point.

The regular iPhone 6 measures in at 6.9mm thick, whilst the Plus comes in at 7.1mm thick, when compared to the 5S that’s around half a millimetre thinner, not much of a change but still. The power button is now located on the side of the device.
