After a few minor tweaks between the iPhone 5 and the 5s, people wanted some change – and change is what they got with the design of the new iPhones. Besides the obvious augment in screen size (from 4in to 4.7in), the iPhone 6 sports a matte all-metal rounded back, with glass that curves to meet the edges on the front for a smooth, continuous form. A huge difference from the flat, sharp angles on the 5s.
The size difference is even more obvious on the iPhone 6 Plus. It’s 5.5in as compared to the 4in iPhone 5s – by far, the biggest of any iPhone. But besides the size and thickness, most of the design elements we mention above are the same across the newly launched units.
As for thickness, the iPhone 6 has a thin 6.9mm profile, while the 6 Plus’ sits at 7.1mm. They’re both considerably skinnier than their 7.5mm predecessor, despite packing a lot more power. There’s quite a big design change too – the lens on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus protrudes from the phone.
