Apple’s newest phones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, were announced and launched with the traditional fanfare; and so far, the larger, thinner smartphones do not disappoint. The sharp, super responsive Retina display is as beautiful as ever, except that it’s now bigger: the iPhone 6 screen measures in at 4.7” and the iPhone 6 Plus, at 5.5” (diagonal). The new iPhones are also lightning fast, with faster processors and network connections, and improved battery life.
