The iPhone6 is Apple’s first foray into the arena of larger phones. It has a 4.7-inch (measured diagonally) screen, compared to the four-inch screen on the iPhone 5, 5C, and 5S, and the 3.5-inch screen on the iPhone 4 and 4S.
I am still using my iPhone5 for now, but I did get a chance to feel a 6 (not the Plus) when my mother’s came in the mail today. In case anyone is unable to get to a store to examine the new phones, I thought I’d provide my best attempt at a detailed description. This is, of course,no substitute for playing with an iPhone6 in person, but it might help prospective buyers know what to expect, or answer some questions for those who just got their shiny new phones.
The button on the top, used to lock or awaken your phone (I’ll call it the Lock Button) has moved. For years it has been on the right side of the top edge, but now it is on the right edge, opposite the volume buttons. This makes it easier to press for many people.
