Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB Specifications
Bigger than bigger
Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB isn’t simply bigger – it’s better in every way. Larger, yet dramatically thinner. More powerful, but remarkably power efficient. With a smooth metal surface that seamlessly meets the new Retina HD display. It’s one continuous form where hardware and software function in perfect unison, creating a new generation of iPhone that’s better by any measure.
iPhone at its largest. And thinnest.
In creating Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB, we scrutinized every element and material. That’s how we arrived at a smooth, continuous form. A thinner profile made possible by our thinnest display yet. And intuitively placed buttons. All made with beautiful anodized aluminum, stainless steel, and glass. It’s a thousand tiny details that add up to something big. Or in this case, two big things: Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB and Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB Plus.
An innovative seamless design.
The first thing you notice when you hold Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB is how great it feels in your hand. The cover glass curves down around the sides to meet the anodized aluminum enclosure in a remarkable, simplified design. There are no distinct edges. No gaps. Just a smooth, seamless bond of metal and glass that feels like one continuous surface.
Streamlined. Inside and out.
Designing a larger iPhone without making it feel bigger was no small task. It required challenging the idea of ”big.” It called for narrowing when the natural inclination was to expand. It meant condensing powerful technologies and making chips smaller and batteries thinner, all while making them more capable. And it meant engineering our thinnest, most advanced Multi‑Touch display. All of which yields a dramatically thin design.
Everything within reach.
By creating Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB and iOS 8 together, we optimized the software to enhance the physical design. iOS swipe gestures were designed to be more fluid across the seamless form, making it easy to navigate iPhone with one hand. With new features like Reachability you can interact with the larger screen in different ways, too. Simply double touch the Home button and the entire screen shifts down closer to your thumb. And to easily navigate Safari or Mail, swipe left to right across the screen to go backward, or swipe right to left to go forward. With the new continuous surface of iPhone, all your gestures now feel smoother than ever.
We also thought about how you use your iPhone every day and redesigned the buttons to make it even easier to use. Elongated volume buttons are integrated into the thinner profile, outlined to make them effortless to find by touch. And the Sleep/Wake button has a new home on the side of the device to put it comfortably within reach. The result is an experience that’s even more intuitive.
The elements of beautiful design.
To create a larger iPhone that’s extraordinarily light, we pioneered new display technologies. We carefully selected every material. Each detail was meticulously designed, engineered, and crafted until iPhone had an incredibly thin, continuous form. From the anodized aluminum and stainless steel to the curve of the polished glass, Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB is worth its weight in gold, silver, and space gray.
Not just a bigger display. A better display.
The size of the new, higher-resolution Retina HD displays on Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB and Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB Plus may be the first thing you notice. But what you experience is so much more. With innovations that deliver higher contrast, dual‑domain pixels for more accurate color at wider viewing angles, and an improved polarizer, these are the thinnest, most advanced Multi‑Touch displays we’ve ever made.
Innovation on full display.
The Retina HD display is your window into everything you do on iPhone. So it has to be great. And with full sRGB color standard, higher contrast, and incredible brightness and white balance, it is.
Rather than using traditional methods to create the higher-resolution Retina HD display, we developed an advanced process of photo alignment. This involves using UV light to precisely position the display’s liquid crystals so they lay exactly where they should. Better-aligned crystals deliver a superior viewing experience, with deeper blacks and sharper text.
Larger displays make sharing easier. To make sure everyone experiences stunning clarity, the new Retina HD display has dual-domain pixels to enable color accuracy from corner to corner. So movies and photos stay true, even when viewing from wider angles.
Your iPhone goes everywhere you do. And sometimes that’s outdoors in the sun. With that in mind, the Retina HD display has an improved polarizer so you get a clearer view when you’re wearing sunglasses.
Hugely powerful. Enormously efficient.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB features an A8 chip built on second-generation 16-bit desktop-class architecture. Its incredible power is enhanced by an M8 motion coprocessor that efficiently measures your activity from advanced sensors, including a new barometer. So you can do more, for longer periods of time, with better performance and battery life.
High performance that’s highly efficient.
The all-new A8 chip is our fastest yet. Its CPU and graphics performance are faster than on the A7 chip, even while powering a larger display and incredible new features. And because it’s designed to be so power efficient, the A8 chip can sustain higher performance – so you can play graphics-intensive games or enjoy video at higher frame rates for longer than ever.\
Two billion transistors strong.
A8 uses an advanced 20-nanometer process. It’s a remarkably small and efficient chip on which two billion transistors deliver incredible performance with up to 50 percent more energy efficiency than the A7 chip.
Great battery life. Even while powering great new features.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB is designed to be incredibly efficient. So you can spend your day taking advantage of all its new features and apps while getting better battery life.
The camera that changed photos now does the same for video.
Every day, people take more photos with iPhone than with any other camera. That’s because the iSight camera makes it so remarkably easy. Now, in addition to its large 1.5-micron pixels and ƒ/2.2 aperture, the world’s most popular camera is packed with new technologies to help everyone take more great photos.
To make it just as easy to shoot amazing video, we added new features like the option to capture 1080p HD at 60 fps, 240-fps slo-mo, and time-lapse video. And you can shoot HD video and then watch the stunning results on the large Retina HD display.
iSight. Our best camera gets even better.
It takes innovative technology to make a great camera even better. That’s why we added features to the 8MP iSight camera like a new sensor with Focus Pixels, improved face detection, and exposure control. So you can take the photo and let Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB do the rest.
Focus Pixels are enabled by the new Apple-designed image signal processor. They provide the sensor with more information about your image, giving you better and faster autofocus that you can even see in preview.
An amazing camera. Now an even more amazing video camera.
The iSight camera doesn’t only take great photos. It lets you shoot stunning 1080p HD video at 60 fps, capture more dramatic slo-mo video, and for the first time, create time-lapse videos. Continuous autofocus provides constant focus as you capture your footage. And cinematic video stabilization keeps your shots steady, even when you’re not.
Now you can create incredible time-lapse videos. iOS 8 does all the work, snapping photos at dynamically selected intervals. Just set up your iPhone to shoot what you want. Swipe to select Time-lapse mode, tap the Record button, and let Camera record as long as you choose. You’ll have an amazing movie, whether you record for 30 minutes or 30 hours.
With FaceTime HD, you can be there even when you’re not.
With a larger aperture and all-new sensor technology, the front-facing FaceTime HD camera now captures 81 percent more light. It also has improved face detection. And its new burst mode takes 10 photos per second. So whether you’re trying to snap the perfect selfie or connecting with someone across the country, every image looks just right.
The FaceTime camera includes the same exposure controls available to the iSight camera, so you can lighten or darken your photos and videos with a simple nudge in either direction.
Faster wireless. Far and wide.
A superfast connection can make you feel like the whole world is within reach. That’s why Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB has faster LTE download speeds.1 That’s also why it has more LTE bands than any other smartphone. Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB supports more advanced wireless technologies to boost performance and help you connect to the things – and people – that matter most.
With faster LTE – up to 150 Mbps – Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB users can experience faster download and upload speeds for browsing the web, streaming music, making video calls, and more.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB also supports Voice over LTE (VoLTE) – wideband high-quality calls that make your conversations sound as crisp and clear as if you were face to face. And with simultaneous voice and LTE data, you can keep browsing while you’re talking. UP TO 150Mbps DOWNLOAD SPEED
More LTE bands than any other smartphone.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB has up to 20 LTE bands. That’s seven more than iPhone 5s – which already had more than any other smartphone. That means iPhone users can connect to more high-speed LTE networks in more places. And when you’re traveling, more LTE bands help you benefit from the growing number of roaming agreements around the world. UP TO 20 LTE BAND
Up to 3x faster Wi‑Fi.
With new support for 802.11ac, you’ll experience up to 3x faster Wi‑Fi than with 802.11n.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB lets yu initiate calls over Wi‑Fi using your own phone number. Which helps when you don’t have a good cellular signal. And once you go out of range of your Wi‑Fi connection, your call can seamlessly transition to VoLTE. So when you’re going from your house to your car to your office, your call switches over without any interruption.
Security. Right at your ﬁngertip.
Your fingerprint is the perfect password. You always have it with you. And no one can ever guess what it is. Our breakthrough Touch ID technology uses a unique fingerprint identity sensor to make unlocking your phone easy and secure. And with new developments in iOS 8 and Touch ID, your fingerprint will grant you faster access to so much more.
Your ﬁngerprint. Your iPhone.
Place your finger on the Home button, and just like that your iPhone unlocks. Touch ID is capable of 360-degree readability, which means no matter what its orientation – portrait, landscape, or anything in between – your iPhone reads your fingerprint and knows who you are. And Touch ID even lets you enroll multiple fingerprints.
The technology behind Touch ID.
There’s a lot of technology at work below the surface of the Home button. Touch it and the surrounding stainless steel ring detects your finger and wakes the capacitive touch sensor. The laser-cut sapphire crystal surface of the button then directs the image of your finger to the sensor, which reads beneath the outer layers of your skin to get a detailed fingerprint. Software then reads the ridges of your fingerprint and finds the match to unlock your phone.
Music. Movies. Books. Apps. Yours with a single touch.
Touch ID does more than just let you unlock your iPhone. Your fingerprint can also approve purchases from iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store, so you don’t have to enter your password or billing information again and again. And for the first time, developers can integrate Touch ID into third‑party apps.
Touch. Pay. Go.
Apple Pay lets you use Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB to pay in hundreds of thousands of stores with a single touch. Just place your finger on the Touch ID sensor with your iPhone near the contactless reader, and your payment is sent. Apple Pay makes it just as convenient to pay within apps, too.
Your wallet. Without the wallet.
Gone are the days of searching for your wallet. The wasted moments finding the right card. The swiping and waiting. Now payments happen with a single touch.
Apple Pay will change how you pay with breakthrough contactless payment technology and unique security features built right into the devices you have with you every day. So you can use your Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB to pay in an easy, secure, and private way.
An easier way to pay.
One touch to pay with Touch ID. Now paying in stores happens in one natural motion – there’s no need to open an app or even wake your display thanks to the innovative Near Field Communication antenna in Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB. To pay, just hold your iPhone near the contactless reader with your finger on Touch ID. You don’t even have to look at the screen to know your payment information was successfully sent. A subtle vibration and beep lets you know.
Convenient checkout. On iPhone, you can also use Apple Pay to pay with a single touch in apps. Checking out is as easy as selecting ”Apple Pay” and placing your finger on the Touch ID sensor.
Setup is simple. Passbook already stores your boarding passes, tickets, coupons, and more. Now it can store your credit and debit cards, too. To get started, you can add the credit or debit card from your iTunes account to Passbook by simply entering the card security code
To add a new card on iPhone, use your iSight camera to instantly capture your card information. Or simply type it in manually. The first card you add automatically becomes your default payment card, but you can go to Passbook anytime to pay with a different card or select a new default in Settings.
More secure payments.
Every time you hand over your credit or debit card to pay, your card number and identity are visible. With Apple Pay, instead of using your actual credit and debit card numbers when you add your card, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element, a dedicated chip in iPhone. These numbers are never stored on Apple servers. And when you make a purchase, the Device Account Number alongside a transaction-specific dynamic security code is used to process your payment. So your actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared with merchants or transmitted with payment.
Protect your accounts. Even if you lose your device. If your iPhone is ever lost or stolen, you can use Find My iPhone to quickly put your device in Lost Mode so nothing is accessible, or you can wipe your iPhone clean completely.
The biggest iOS release ever.
It’s not just Apple iPhone 6 Plus 16 GB that’s bigger. The world’s most advanced mobile operating system has made a huge leap, too. iOS 8 has new capabilities and functions that let you do things you could only imagine before, like using Siri to control the devices in your home or using your health and fitness apps to communicate with your doctor. Developers now have deeper access and more tools to bring some of the amazing new features of iOS 8 to their apps. And it all looks great on the large Retina HD display.
What’s new in iOS 8.
iOS 8 is full of features that make every experience better. More fun, useful, and surprising ways to send messages. A better picture of your health and fitness information. A whole new way to bring harmony to your family’s digital life. And so much more.
Now you can tap to add your voice or a video to any message. Share your location. Name your group chats, and mute or leave the conversation whenever you like.
Your health and fitness apps can talk to each other so they can work harder for you. And you can see a clear picture of all your health and fitness data in an easy-to-read dashboard.
The keyboard gets smart and typing gets easier. It suggests contextually appropriate words based on whom you’re typing to and in what app.
Now up to six family members can share purchases from iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store without sharing accounts. So you can give your favorite people access to all your favorite things.
Store any kind of file – presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, images, and more – in iCloud and access them from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. And edits you make on one device appear on all of them.
For the first time, you have the option of using Touch ID to sign in to third-party apps – there’s no need to enter a password. Your fingerprint data is protected and is never accessed by iOS or other apps.
Developers can enable their photo apps to edit photos directly in the Camera Roll without having to import them first.
Now third-party camera apps can have precise control over exposure, focus, and white balance in addition to the controls they already have.
Health and fitness apps can share their data with the new Health app and with each other. When apps can talk to each other, they work harder for your health.
HomeKit introduces a new way for you to control supported devices in your home using Siri. That means you could use your voice to turn on lights or adjust the thermostat.
Now developers can use the full power of iCloud in their apps and enable you to sign in with your Apple ID without sharing your personal information.
SpriteKit enables developers to create high-performance, battery-efficient 2D games. In iOS 8, we’ve added several enhancements that will make 2D games even better. These new technologies will help in-game characters move more naturally and make it easier for developers to add force fields, detect collisions, and generate new lighting effects in their games.
SceneKit enables developers to render game scenes in 3D and is designed for casual 3D gaming. SceneKit incorporates a physics engine, a particle generator, and easy ways to script the actions of 3D objects. It’s also completely integrated with SpriteKit, so developers can include SpriteKit assets in 3D games.
Built for developers who create highly immersive console games, Metal is a new technology that allows them to squeeze maximum performance from the A7 and A8 chips. It’s optimized to allow the CPU and GPU to work together to achieve optimal performance. It’s designed for multithreading, and there are great tools for putting it all together in Xcode
