7 things you need to know about the iPhone 6

4. It's the best iPhone camera yet

Contrary to the rumours, Apple has stuck to its 8MP guns, but that doesn't mean it hasn't made a few key tweaks.

The sensor itself has bigger pixels, along with an f/2.2 aperture and dual-LED flash for more realistic colour reproduction.

Apple also went to great lengths to explain the benefit of its phase detection autofocus system, which makes use of pixels located on the image sensor to let you focus and snap photos faster than ever, apparently.

Panoramic photos have also received a 43MP size bump, and an improved gyroscope will apparently produce panoramas with more seamless stitching.

In the video department, the iPhone 6 is also capable of shooting 1080p at 30/60fps, and it can now record slow motion videos at an impressive 240fps, for even slower slow-mo action.

Sadly the iPhone 6 Plus' optical image stabilisation didn't make it into the iPhone 6, presumably due to space constraints.

5. It's running iOS 8

iOS 8 makes its fully-finished debut on the iPhone 6, bringing with it a slew of improvements, catching up with Android in many areas including app-to-app communication and keyboard customisation.

It also surpasses Google's offering in some ways by hooking up to your Mac for seamless messaging, and it'll even let you answer calls on your connected Mac, which will come in handy if your phone's charging in another room.
