Coming onto the market in September 2014, the large format iPhone 6 Plus was launched in conjunction with the more conventionally-sized iPhone 6 as a replacement for the iPhone 5s, and it took the world by storm. Classed as a ‘phablet’ (the size is mid-way between a phone and a tablet), this iPhone variant was the largest ever launched, and boasted a magnificent high-definition 5.5-inch Retina display. Other features of the iPhone 6 Plus were that both cameras had been updated, and the 8 mega pixel rear camera was fitted with optical image stabilisation, and could shoot slow-motion video.
Looking beyond the size of the iPhone 6 Plus, other changes included the use of the M8 motion co-processor, which was an advance on the M7 version in the 5s, and included a barometer which could sense changes in altitude. Inclusion of an A8 processor also meant a performance increase of 25% for the CPU and 50% for graphics over the previous model, with less heat being produced. In common with the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus also had NFE support for Apple Pay, and the power button re-located on the side near to the top of the long edge, to make it easier to access while keeping it free from hand contamination.
The large size of the iPhone 6 Plus has gained it a reputation of being difficult to handle until you’re used to it – there were many examples of people buying the phone and then dropping it outside the store.
