The
iPhone 6
and
iPhone 6 Plus
[a]
are smartphones that were designed and marketed by Apple Inc. They are the eighth generation of the iPhone, succeeding the iPhone v, iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, and were announced on September 9, 2014, and released on September xix, 2014.[20]
The iPhone 6 and iPhone half dozen Plus jointly were themselves replaced as the flagship devices of the iPhone series past the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus on September ix, 2015. The iPhone half-dozen and 6 Plus include larger 4.7 and 5.5 inches (120 and 140 mm) displays, a faster processor, upgraded cameras, improved LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity and support for a most field communications-based mobile payments offering.[21]
[22]

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus received positive reviews, with critics regarding their redesign, specifications, camera, and bombardment life as beingness improvements over previous iPhone models. However, aspects of the blueprint of iPhone 6 were also criticized, including plastic strips on the rear of the device for its antenna that disrupted the otherwise metal outside, and the screen resolution of the standard-sized iPhone half-dozen being lower than other devices in its class. The iPhone 6 sold extremely well, making it the best-selling iPhone model and the most successful smartphone to engagement.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been the subject of several hardware issues, including most prominently, beingness susceptible to bending under hard pressure (dubbed “Bendgate”), and as a byproduct of this lack of rigidity, the touchscreen’s internal hardware being susceptible to losing its connection to the phone’s logic board (nicknamed “Touch Disease”). Additionally, some iPhone half dozen Plus models were the subject field of camera issues, including some with malfunctioning optical paradigm stabilization or otherwise defects on rear cameras.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were moved to the midrange spot in Apple’s iPhone lineup when the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were released in September 2015. The iPhone half-dozen and half dozen Plus were discontinued in most markets on September 7, 2016, when Apple announced the iPhone 7 and iPhone vii Plus. Their spot every bit the entry-level iPhone was replaced by the showtime-generation iPhone SE, which was released before on March 31, 2016. The iPhone 6 was relaunched with 32 GB of storage in Asian markets in February 2017 equally a midrange/budget iPhone. It was subsequently expanded to Europe,[23]
[24]
earlier hitting the US markets in May 2017,[25]
and Canada in July 2017.[26]
The iPhone half dozen and half dozen Plus supported iOS 8, ix, 10, 11 and 12 before being dropped by iOS 13, and they are the third to support five versions of iOS later on the iPhone 4S and the iPhone v.

History

[edit]

From the launch of the original iPhone to the iPhone 4S, iPhones used 3.v-inch displays—which are smaller than screens used by flagship phones from competitors. The iPhone 5 and its immediate successors featured a display that was taller, merely the same width as prior models, measuring at iv inches diagonally. Following Apple’s loss in smartphone market share to companies producing phones with larger displays, reports as early on as January 2014 suggested Apple was preparing to launch new iPhone models with larger, 4.vii-inch and 5.v-inch displays.[27]
[28]
[29]
Reports prior to its unveiling also speculated Apple tree might use a new iPhone model to introduce a mobile payments platform using near-field communications—a engineering science that has been incorporated into many Android phones, but has experienced a low adoption rate among users.[30]

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were officially unveiled during a printing event at the Flintstone Center for Performing Arts in Cupertino, California on September 9, 2014, and released on September 19, 2014; pre-orders began on September 12, 2014, with the iPhone 6 starting at US$649 and the iPhone 6 Plus starting at US$749.[31]
In China, where the iPhone 5C and 5S were the first models in the iPhone series to be released in the land on the same twenty-four hour period equally their international launch, Apple notified local wireless carriers it would be unable to release the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on the 19th in that location were “details which are not ready”; local media reported the devices had not yet been approved past the Ministry building of Manufacture and Information technology, and earlier in the year, a news report by land broadcaster Cathay Central Television alleged iPhone devices were a threat to national security because iOS 7’s “frequent locations” function could expose “land secrets.”[32]
[33]

In August 2015, Apple initiated a replacement program for some early iPhone half-dozen Plus models that were found to have potentially faulty cameras that could exist causing photos to announced blurry.[34]
[35]
[36]

On September 9, 2015, with the release of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, the iPhone six and 6 Plus were moved to the mid-range of the iPhone lineup. The 128 GB versions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was discontinued along with the aureate version of both phones, but the sixteen GB and 64 GB versions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in silver and space gray remain available for auction at a reduced price.[37]

In June 2016, Apple faced a potential sales ban in Mainland china, as Shenzhen Baili, a Chinese device maker, alleged the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus infringed on its design patent.[38]

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were discontinued on September 7, 2016, when Apple announced the iPhone vii and iPhone 7 Plus, and the iPhone 6 and half dozen Plus’ spot equally the entry-level iPhone was taken by the commencement-generation iPhone SE. As the iPhone SE has more powerful internal hardware than the midrange iPhone vi (largely the aforementioned as the 6S) and had been released earlier on March 31, 2016, this created an unusual situation when information technology was sold alongside the iPhone six and half-dozen Plus until September seven despite existence marketed equally a lower-tier iPhone.

In February 2017, the iPhone 6 was quietly relaunched in carrier stores and online, this time the storage has been inverse to 32 GB. In India, information technology was sold on Amazon’southward website in Space Grey. In Taiwan, it was sold through Taiwan Mobile on March ten in gold color. In mid-March, it was released in the Eu to Republic of belarus via the i-Store webshop. It as well makes an appearance in North America with Sprint based U.s.a. prepaid carriers Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile, along with AT&T GoPhone. These are not being distributed by Apple tree on their website or their retail stores.

Design

[edit]

The pattern of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is influenced past that of the iPad Air with a drinking glass front end that is curved around the edges of the display, and an aluminum rear that contains ii plastic strips for the antenna.[39]
The dorsum is congenital of 6000-series aluminum.[twoscore]
Both models come in gold, silvery, and “space grayness” finishes. The iPhone 6 has a thickness of 6.ix millimetres (0.27 in), while the iPhone half dozen Plus is seven.1 mm (0.28 in) in thickness; both are thinner than the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, with the iPhone 6 being Apple’south thinnest phone to date.

Mockup 3D print model of iPhone 6 Plus

The most pregnant changes to the iPhone six and iPhone 6 Plus are its displays; both branded as “Retina Hard disk drive Brandish” and “ion-strengthened”, the iPhone 6 display is 4.7 inches in size with a sixteen:nine resolution of 1334×750 (326 ppi, minus one row of pixels), while the iPhone half dozen Plus includes a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 (1080p) display (401 PPI). The displays use a multiple-domain LCD panel, dubbed “dual-domain pixels”; the RGB pixels themselves are skewed in a pattern and then every pixel is seen from a unlike angle. This technique helps amend the viewing angles of the brandish.[41]

To accommodate the larger physical size of the iPhone half dozen and iPhone 6 Plus, the elevation button was renamed to “side push” and moved to the side of the phone instead of the top to amend its accessibility.[21]
[22]

Batteries

[edit]

The iPhone 6 features a 6.91 Wh (1810 mAh) battery, while the iPhone half dozen Plus features an xi.1 Wh (2915 mAh) battery, neither of which are user-replaceable.[

Chipsets

[edit]

Both models include an Apple tree A8 system-on-chip, and an M8 motion co-processor—an update of the M7 chip from the iPhone 5s. The primary divergence betwixt the M8 and the original M7 coprocessor is the M8 as well includes a barometer to mensurate altitude changes. Phil Schiller said the A8 chip would provide, in comparing to the 5s, a 25% increment in CPU operation, a 50% increase in graphics performance, and less heat output. Early hands-on reports said the A8’southward GPU performance might indeed break away from previous generations doubling of performance at each yearly release, scoring 21204.26 in Base marker X compared to 20253.80, 10973.36 and 5034.75 on respectively the 5s, v and 4s.[42]

Connectivity

[edit]

The expanded LTE connectivity on the iPhone 6 and iPhone half dozen Plus is improved to LTE Advanced, with support for over 20 LTE bands (seven more than than the iPhone 5s),[43]
for up to 150 Mbit/s download speed, and VoLTE support. Wi-Fi performance has been improved with back up for 802.11ac specifications, providing speeds up to 433.0581 Mbit/south—which is up to three times faster than 802.11n,[43]
forth with Wi-Fi Calling support where bachelor. The iPhone half-dozen and iPhone vi Plus adds support for near-field communications (NFC). It is initially used exclusively for Apple Pay—a new mobile payments system which allows users to shop their credit cards in Passbook for use with online payments and retail purchases over NFC.[44]
[45]
iOS 11 added express use of virtually-field communications likewise Apple Pay for 3rd party apps.[46]

Camera

[edit]

The iPhone 6’southward rear-facing camera now has the power to shoot 1080p Full Hd video at either 30 or threescore frames per second and 720p Hard disk drive tedious-movement video at either 120 or 240 frames per second, while the iPhone 5s could only record at 30 and 120 frames per 2nd respectively.[

Unlike the previous models, the rear-facing camera is not affluent with the rear of the device, but instead protrudes slightly.[47]

Still photos tin can be captured during video recording. Those have a resolution of four megapixels (2720×1532).[48]
[49]

The camera as well includes phase detection autofocus.[50]
The iPhone 6 Plus camera is nearly identical, but also includes optical epitome stabilization.[21]
[22]
The front-facing photographic camera was too updated with a new sensor and f/two.2 discontinuity, forth with support for burst and HDR modes.[21]
[22]

Yet, the optical image stabilization of the iPhone 6 Plus is only bachelor for photography and deactivated during video recording.[fifteen]

The front photographic camera has 1.3 Megapixels and records video upward to 720p at 30 frames per second.[12]

Sensors

[edit]

The iPhone half-dozen and 6 Plus are the kickoff iPhones to be equipped with a barometer sensor.[51]

Like the predecessor, the iPhone six and 6 Plus are equipped with an accelerometer, gyroscope, front-facing proximity sensor and a digital compass.[12]

Software

[edit]

When outset released, the iPhone six and iPhone 6 Plus were supplied pre-loaded with iOS 8, while the iPhone 5S was supplied pre-loaded with iOS seven. Apps are able to accept reward of the increased screen size in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus to brandish more than information on-screen; for example, the Mail app uses a dual-pane layout similar to its iPad version when the device is in landscape mode on the iPhone 6 Plus. Every bit it uses an identical aspect ratio, apps designed for the iPhone five, iPhone 5C, and 5S tin be upscaled for apply on the iPhone half-dozen and vi Plus. To amend the usability of the devices’ larger screens, an additional “Reachability” gesture was added; double-tapping the Domicile button will slide the top one-half of the screen’south contents downwardly to the bottom half of the screen. This part allows users to reach buttons located virtually the peak of the screen, such as a “Dorsum” button in the top-left corner.[21]
[22]
In June 2019, Apple tree appear that it will drib support for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with the release of iOS thirteen.[52]
[53]
[54]

Reception

[edit]

Both iPhone 6 models received positive reviews.
Re/code
called it “the best smartphone you can buy”.[55]
TechRadar
praised the iPhone 6’s “brilliant” design, improved battery life over the 5s, iOS 8 for beingness “smarter and more intuitive than ever”, along with the quality of its camera. However, the plastic antenna strips on the rear of the telephone were criticized for resulting in poor aesthetics, the display for having lower resolution and pixel density in comparison to other recent smartphones – including those with the same physical screen size as the iPhone six, such as the HTC Ane, and for non having a sufficient justification for its significantly higher price in comparison to similar devices running Android or Windows Telephone.[56]
The Verge
considered the iPhone 6 to be “simply and cleanly designed” in comparing to the 5s, noting the telephone still felt usable despite its larger size, only criticized the antenna plastic, the protruding camera lens (which prevents the device from sitting flat without a case), and the lack of additional optimization in the operating system for the bigger screen. Improvements such as performance, bombardment life, VoLTE back up, and other tweaks were likewise noted. In conclusion, the iPhone six was considered “good, even great, just in that location’s little about it that’s truly aggressive or truly moving the needle. It’due south just a refinement of a lot of existing ideas into a much more pleasant packet”.[39]

In regards to the half dozen Plus,
Engadget
panned its design for being uncomfortable to concord and harder to grip in comparison to other devices such equally the Galaxy Note 3 and LG G3, simply praised its inclusion of optical epitome stabilization and slightly better bombardment life than the vi.[fifty]

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been criticized by Forbes Magazine for the lack of 2160p (3840×2160 pixels) video recording due to the insufficient paradigm sensor resolution of 3264×2448 pixels. Yet, third-party software is able to record footage at 3264×1836 pixels upscaled to 3840×2160p.[57]

Issues

[edit]

The iPhone vi and half dozen Plus were affected by a number of notable hardware-related bug, including but not limited to concerns surrounding their rigidity (which led to incidents surrounding chassis bending, too as degradation or outright loss of touchscreen functionality), performance bug on models with larger storage chapters, camera issues on the 6 Plus model, besides as an initially undocumented “error 53” that appeared under sure circumstances.


Bendgate (chassis bending)

[edit]

Shortly after its public release, it was reported the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus chassis was susceptible to bending under pressure, such every bit when carried tightly in a user’southward pocket. While such problems are not sectional to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the design flaw came to exist known amongst users and the media equally “Bendgate“.[58]
[59]

Apple tree responded to the bending allegations, stating they had but received nine complaints of aptitude devices and that the damage occurring due to regular utilise is “extremely rare.” The visitor maintained the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus went through immovability testing to ensure they would stand up to daily apply.[60]
The visitor offered to replace phones that were bent if it is determined the angle was unintentional.[58]

In May 2018, as part of a lawsuit against Apple regarding touchscreen failure, it was revealed via internal documents that Apple knew the iPhone half-dozen and half-dozen Plus phones were more probable to curve than previous models. According to the court documents, Apple’southward internal tests found the iPhone 6 was iii.3 times more likely to bend than the iPhone 5s, while the larger iPhone 6 Plus was 7.2 times more probable to bend.[61]
[62]

Hair ripping

[edit]

On October 3, 2014 9to5Mac released a post challenge sure iPhone 6 and iPhone half dozen Plus users complained on social networking sites the phone ripped off their pilus when they held the phone close to their ears when making telephone calls.[63]
Twitter users claimed the seam between the drinking glass screen and aluminum back of the iPhone 6 was to arraign, with pilus becoming caught within it.[64]
[65]

Flash storage performance

[edit]

Some users reported the 64 and 128 GB iPhone 6 models had experienced performance issues, and that some 128 GB iPhone vi Plus models would, in rare cases, randomly crash and reboot.
Business organisation Korea
reported the issues were connected to the triple-level jail cell NAND storage of the affected models. Triple-level NAND flash tin can shop 3 bits of data per prison cell of flash, and are cheaper than dual-level cell solutions, but at the cost of performance. It was reported Apple tree had planned to switch the affected model lines back to multi-level prison cell flash, and accost the performance issues on existing devices in a future iOS update.[66]
[67]
[68]


iPhone half dozen/6 Plus camera issues

[edit]

Information technology was reported the optical epitome stabilization systems on some iPhone 6 Plus models were faulty, declining to properly stabilize when the phone is beingness held perfectly all the same, leading to blurry photos and “wavy”-looking videos.[69]
The optical image stabilization organization was also constitute to have been affected by accessories that utilise magnets, such as 3rd-party lens attachments; Apple tree issued advisories to users and its licensed accessory makers, alarm magnetic or metallic accessories can cause the OIS to malfunction.[seventy]

On August 21, 2015, Apple instituted a repair program for iPhone vi Plus models released between September 2014 and January 2015, citing faulty rear cameras on afflicted models may produce blurry pictures.[34]
[35]
[36]

Some iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models take an issue in which the front-facing camera is somehow “shifted”, or out of place. Apple stated they would replace well-nigh affected iPhone 6 models with this upshot, free of accuse. Despite numerous complaints regarding this issue, it does not seem to touch the camera itself. Information technology is said the camera is non what has shifted, merely a piece of protective foam around the camera module itself that has gone out of place.[71]


“Error 53”

[edit]

If the iPhone 6 dwelling button is repaired or modified by a third party, the device volition neglect security checks related to Touch ID as the components have not been “re-validated” for security reasons—a procedure that tin can simply be performed past an authorized Apple outlet. Failing these checks disables all features related to Impact ID. Such effects accept sometimes happened as a result of harm as well.[72]
[73]

It was reported these same hardware integrity checks would trigger an unrecoverable loop into “Recovery Manner” if iOS is updated or restored, with attempts to restore the device via iTunes software resulting in an “error 53” message. Beyond the explanation this is related to hardware integrity errors regarding Affect ID components, Apple provided no official explanation of what specifically triggers error 53 or how it can be fixed without replacing the entire device.[72]
[73]

On February 18, 2016, Apple released an iOS 9.2.1 patch through iTunes which addresses this issue and admitted error 53 was actually related to a diagnostic check for inspecting the Touch on ID hardware earlier an iPhone is shipped from its factories.[74]


Touchscreen failure (“touch disease”)

[edit]

An iPhone 6 with its brandish removed

Touchscreen control components on iPhone 6 logic boards have insufficient support, including a lack of underfill—which strengthens and stabilizes integrated circuits, and a lack of rigid metal shielding on the logic board unlike previous iPhone models; the touchscreen controller is instead shielded by a flexible “sticker”. Normal use of the device can cause the logic lath to flex internally, which strains the touchscreen IC connectors and leads to a degradation or outright loss of touchscreen functionality. A symptom that has been associated with this type of failure is a flickering grayness bar nearly the superlative of the display.[75]
[76]
iFixit reported this issue, nicknamed “touch disease”,[75]
[77]
[78]
was a byproduct of the previous “Bendgate” design flaw because of the device’s demonstrated lack of rigidity. As such, the larger iPhone 6 Plus is more susceptible to the flaw, but it has also been reported on a small pct of iPhone 6 models.[78]

The devices’ successor, the iPhone 6S, is not afflicted past this flaw due to changes to their internal design, which included the strengthening of “key points” in the rear casing, and the re-location of the touchscreen controllers to the display assembly from the logic board.[79]

Initially, Apple did not officially admit this issue. The issue was widely discussed on Apple tree’s support forum—where posts discussing the issue have been subject to censorship.[76]
The touchscreen can exist repaired via microsoldering: Apple Stores are not equipped with the tools needed to perform the logic board repair, which had led to affected users sending their devices to unofficial, third-political party repair services. An Apple Store employee interviewed past
Apple tree Insider
reported six months later on they first started noticing the trouble, Apple had issued guidance instructing them to tell affected users this was a hardware issue that could not be repaired and that their iPhone had to exist replaced. Nonetheless, some in-stock units have also been afflicted with this issue out of the box, leading to an employee stating they were “tired of pulling service stock out of the box, and seeing the exact same problem the customer has on the replacement”.[80]
[81]
The event received mainstream attention in August 2016 when reported past iFixit.[75]
[78]
[80]
On August 26, 2016,
Apple tree Insider
reported based on data from 4 “high-traffic” Apple Store locations, there was a fasten in the number of iPhone half-dozen devices brought into them for repairs following mainstream reports of the “affect disease” trouble.[81]

On August 30, 2016, a group of iii iPhone half dozen owners sued Apple Inc. in the The states District Court for the Northern Commune of California and filed for a proposed form activeness lawsuit, alleging Apple was engaging in unfair business practices by having “long been aware” of the defective design, yet refusing to acknowledge or repair it.[77]
[82]
[83]

On Nov 17, 2016, Apple officially acknowledged the outcome and announced a paid repair program for affected iPhone six Plus models, stating; “some iPhone half dozen Plus devices may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Affect issues after being dropped multiple times on a difficult surface and and so incurring farther stress on the device”.[84]
