Four iPhone 6 Features Set To Change Everything
Everything's changing, and Apple, as usual, seems to be at the forefront of the revolution.
People are often keen on saying the latest Gadget X will "change everything," or toss the word "revolutionary" around until it loses its meaning. But what happens when you find a device that truly seems as though it can deliver on all of its promises? Here are four ways the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are set to change everything.
You'll be able to call people using your Wi-Fi connection on the iPhone 6, which virtually eliminates signal issues, except where you know you're not going to have service to lean on. With the Apple Wi-Fi already receiving an upgrade as it is, to 802.11ac (three times faster than the last iPhone) you'll never have to worry about dropping calls -- at least as often -- again. With the handoff from Wi-Fi to a cell tower, you won't even have to worry about changing settings or anything either. Simply leave your house and go out and about, and you'll automatically be switched over to a cell tower. Unfortunately it seems as though it's localized to T-Mobile only in the US for now, but that doesn't rule out anything in the future.
Everything all in one place
Apple has offered several of the features consumers are looking for across different devices with their iPhone 6 and Apple Watch combos, and thus are changing up the game. Soon, mobile payments via Apple Pay are likely to change the way we process transactions. We'll coordinate and track workouts and fitness progress via phone. You may even decide your wallet is obsolete anymore, and leave it at home. With wireless charging, you won't even have to worry about bringing a charger if that takes off as well.
Ease of development
With the release of iOS 8 as well as Swift, Apple's new development language, developers will have an easier time than ever when it comes to compiling software that users want. You can get in on it as well by taking the Complete iOS & Swift Development Course and receive iOS 8 early if you're a developer -- Swift is poised to create some truly awesome programming, and it's only up from here.
The phablet is more accessible than ever
The iPhone 6 Plus may look and sound scary to those of us who have always preferred the iPhone for its svelte design and smaller screen, but things are changing. It doesn't have to be that way. Apple's ease of use, streamlined features, and familiar functionality have all crossed over to the iPhone 6 Plus, meaning anyone who's been afraid of investing in a phablet or even giving one a fair shake can finally make the leap. And when consumers have confidence in their products, they'll put even more confidence in the creators, who'll pump out features that hopefully the rest of the phablet-phobic world will jump on.
