This is EVERYTHING you need to know about the Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

Camera App

The great thing about the iPhone camera is that it’s so easy to use and takes great shots every single time. And with the new update, you can capture even slower slow-motion videos at 240fps, perfect for more epic shots in all their fluid glory.

If you’re looking for something even more cinematic, time-lapse videos should do the trick. Just press the record button and your camera will do all the hard processing work for you. The only thing you have to worry about is your battery running out before you get all the footage needed. 

As for stills, you now get exposure controls in real time. Taking a photo or a video and tapping the screen (just like you would normally focus) will turn up a little sun icon. Tapping it will bring up a slider that you can use to adjust exposure up to four f-stops lighter or darker to get your desired image. 

Landscape shots are also better than ever, with 43MP Panoramas and better exposure adjustments so they emerge as one seamless stitch. Sunset at the Grand Canyon? No problem for this smart shooter at all, even with the tricky shadows. 

Campus

Whenever you see mentions of Cupertino in anything related to Apple, they’re talking about the Apple Campus, their corporate headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California. It currently occupies around 850,000 square feet, with the company even leasing an additional 3.3m square feet of office space in the city itself to accommodate all its employees.  

Continuity

Reap the benefits of having an entire suite of iThings with this seamless feature (give you have iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite). Hear a call coming in, but your iPhone’s nowhere near you while you’re working on your Mac or iPad? Just answer it directly (or reject it) on your other devices so long as your iOS 8-running iPhone is on the same Wi-Fi network. You can also message contacts directly from your iThings without rummaging through your belongings for your iPhone.

It’s not just about calls and texts either. Handoff is a feature that allows you to continue working across iThings on iOS 8 native apps like Keynote, Pages, and Numbers. This is perfect if you need to be on the move without losing any of your work or go through the tedious process of downloading and uploading again. Works for Safari browsing and composing in Mail too.

Craig Federighi

As Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering, Federighi was the man responsible for developing iOS 8. That’s why he’s usually the guy to demonstrate new functions on the latest iOS versions during Apple’s keynotes.
