Alongside the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, Apple also revealed the iPhone 6 Plus, a 5.5-inch monster previously rumoured to be called the iPhone 6L. It’s the first ‘phablet’ the Cupertino giant has produced.
The iPhone 6 Plus matches its smaller sibling in many ways, but betters it in others. So let’s jump right in!
1. It’s the biggest iPhone ever
This is quite literally the case. Although the new iPhone 6 Plus resembles its smaller sibling, it pretty much dwarfs the iPhone 5s. It’s an iPad mini mini.
2. The iPhone 6 Plus has a 1080p display
The rumour mill was right that the larger iPhone would boast a 5.5-inch display, but what we didn’t know was the resolution. It’s 1920 x 1080, with a ppi of 401 - that’s over two million pixels. By comparison, the iPhone 6 resolution is 1334 x 750 at 326ppi and the iPhone 5s is 1136 x 640 at 326ppi.
That noise you can hear is developers quietly weeping.
