Help Decide Which Size iPhone 6 to Buy with This Printable Guide

Deciding which size iPhone 6 to buy is no easy task, particularly if you’re going to pre-order this Friday and aren’t able to hold one of the devices in your hand before the big purchase. That’s where this little printable PDF file comes into play, which gives you an accurate idea of the physical size of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus against an existing iPhone 5 model.

You’ll want to print this out to get the best idea, though loading it at full size on screen can also work to give a vaguer concept of size too. Either way, bbe sure to hold your iPhone 5 up to make sure that size is accurate. Whether you just look at it on screen or actually print it out as recommended, you’ll find that both models are certainly larger than existing iPhones, but really you should print it out if you’re going to use this to help guide your pre-order:

    • Go here to load the iPhone 6 size file
    • Print the file as usual (or use that cool print from desktop trick) – be sure the file is printed on 8.5″ x 11″ paper and it is set to 100% scale
    • Grab some scissors and cut out the iPhone scale models and use your imagination

You’ll find both sizes to be larger, where the iPhone 6 feels marginally bigger and mostly taller than iPhone 5 line, it’s the iPhone 6 Plus in particular that really stands out. With the Plus models larger screen and pixel dense display comes a stellar battery life, iPad-like landscape mode, and an optical image stabilization feature, making the larger physical size less of an issue if you find those features compelling, and I suspect the iPhone 6 Plus is going to be a very popular device, particular for those who want to merge an iPad and iPhone into a single carry-around item. On the other hand, if you’re more or less happy with the iPhone 5 lines size, you’ll find the standard iPhone 6 with 4.7″ display to be a notable upgrade on screen size and performance, while still being able to easily carry it in your pocket.

While I haven’t gotten my hands on a physical iPhone 6 yet (few have if you weren’t invited to the Apple press event), I’ve at least had the luxury of holding a third party cases built for the device, which offers a decent idea of what the phones will feel like. Of course, a case – even slim cases – add additional bulk to an iPhone, and if you like to use a cover or case on your iPhone you may want to consider that as well when you’re shopping and pre-ordering the iPhone. Otherwise, if you have enough patience to wait until you can use the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in person, you may want to do that before buying, as they certainly aren’t cheap purchases.

Heads up to AppleInsider for the PDF and iPhoneInCanada for the great find.

Apple design chief Jonathan Ive calls iPhone 6 and Apple Watch its ‘best work yet

In a pair of interviews with ABC News following Tuesday’s big hardware debut, Apple CEO Tim Cook and SVP of Design Jony Ive discussed the trials and tribulations of designing the company’s first wearable device.  Apple design chief Jonathan Ive calls iPhone 6 and Apple Watch its ‘best work yet

Speaking with ABC News’ David Muir, Cook said Apple Watch came about after the death of company cofounder Steve Jobs, meaning the wearable is the first product category to be developed under Cook’s watch.  When asked what Jobs would think of the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, Cook made it a point to mention the tech guru’s influence is being felt even now, nearly three years after his passing.

“I think he would be smiling today,” Cook said. “I think he would be so proud that he left a company that continued after him where he could clearly see his DNA at the foundation of it. You can see Steve written all over the products we did today.” Cook also handled questions related to Apple Watch security, a valid concern given the wearable will have access to sensitive information that, in some cases, could include payment information. Along with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple Watch has NFC built in to conduct touch-less Apple Pay payments.

The Apple chief said the wearable is the most secure solution on the market, noting credit card information is translated into a Device Account Number that is used in conjunction with a dynamically generated security transaction code. Apple Pay technology was first discovered in an Apple patent filing from 2012.

A final question from Muir asked about Apple’s “Made in America” initiative, to which Cook said parts, services and machinery from 22 states are being used in the production of Apple Watch and the latest iPhone product lines. As for Ive, Apple’s design chief said his team took years to get the Apple Watch right. One of the hardest issues to address was making a very personal device attractive to a wide swath of consumers. “We’ve always tried to make products that people don’t begrudgingly use, but that they want to use,” Ive said. “I think that the bar for that is very high when it’s something that you wear. And it’s something that you’re going to wear all day, every day.”

 

Apple Watch is expected to go on sale in early 2015 at a starting price of $349.

iPhone 6 Pre-Orders Start This Friday, Release Date Set for September 19

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available for pre-order starting this Friday, September 12, with the actual shipping date arriving a week later on Friday, September 19. That latter Friday will also be when they appear for purchase in physical Apple Store locations.

Pre-orders will be done through the online Apple Store, and the pricing has been set to start at $199 for an iPhone 6 with two-year contract subsidy. The iPhone 6 Plus starts $100 higher with a two year contract subsidy at $299. Both of the entry-level models have 16GB of storage, but the next model up for both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus offers 64GB of storage.

If you have a desire to pickup the iPhone 6 and get your hands on one relatively early in the release cycle, it is highly recommended to participate in pre-orders or to wait in a line at an Apple Store. The iPhone routinely sells out upon launch and is often backordered for several weeks, and the iPhone 6 is unlikely to be any different. It’s not yet known when exactly pre-orders will begin, but 12AM PST (midnight) is not unusual. Ambitious individuals will likely begin lining up at Apple Stores relatively soon so they can buy one on release day.

Sandwiched in between the iPhone dates is iOS 8, which will be released on September 17as a free download for other compatible devices. The Apple Watch will be available sometime in “early 2015″.

iPhone 6 Pricing Starts at $199

The all new iPhone 6 has been announced, and pricing closely follows prior iPhone models. But there’s a catch; the two upper-end models have both doubled their capacity without raising the prices. That means that if you skip the intro-model of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, you’ll get twice as much storage capacity. Here’s the breakdown on pricing:

iPhone 6 with 4.7″ Display Contract Pricing

  • $199 – 16GB
  • $299 – 64GB
  • $399 – 128GB

iPhone 6 Plus with 5.5″ Display Contract Pricing

  • $299 – 16GB
  • $399 – 64GB
  • $499 – 128GB

 

Keep in mind these prices as shown are for two-year contract subsidies through major cellular carriers. The full unlocked prices for each model will be significantly higher, as usual.

Unlocked / No-Contract pricing for the new iPhone 6 models is quite a bit more because you lose the carrier subsidy. Those prices are currently set as follows:

Price of iPhone 6 with 4.7″ Display Unlocked / No Contract

  • $649 – 16GB
  • $749 – 64GB
  • $849 – 128GB

Price of iPhone 6 Plus with 5.5″ Display Unlocked / No Contract

  • $749 – 16GB
  • $849 – 64GB
  • $949 – 128GB

Notably absent is a 32GB model, which is a bit curious as that size capacity really should have replaced the 16GB version… this makes the middle and upper end model particularly desirable

As expected, Apple debuted two new iPhone 6 models today. The first, dubbed the iPhone 6, has a 4.7″ display, while the second, called iPhone 6 Plus, has a 5.5″ display. The internal components for both devices remain the same, making the screen size the differentiating factor between the two models.

iPhone 6 Tech Specs

Some technical specs for the new iPhone 6 models are as follows:

  • A8 CPU with significantly better performance and energy efficiency
  • iPhone 6 4.7″ screen: 1334×750 pixel display at 326 PPI
  • iPhone 6 Plus 5.5″ screen: 1920×1080 display at 401 PPI
  • Curved glass display
  • Improved battery life, equal or better than iPhone 5S
  • M8 Motion processor, will track fitness activity
  • Barometer sensor included, senses air pressure to detect elevation

  • VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling
  • Apple Pay wireless payments support
  • Ships with iOS 8 pre-installed
  • Release date set for September 19

Ok ok enough technical specs, what does it look like, right?
