I still go back and forth on whether I prefer the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. And I think my internal debate with that will go on for a little while still. However, there's no denying that these two devices are Apple's best iPhones yet.
Peter: Apple long ago established that it doesn't need to be the first to market with new features; it prefers to get it right when it finally comes. So the lamentation of many iPhone users for years that Apple didn't make bigger iPhones was finally answered, and answered in spectacular fashion: The iPhone 6 is bigger and better than iPhones before it, but it doesn't feel bigger; the iPhone 6 Plus is a phablet but doesn't feel like a phablet. More than that, though, iOS 8 and Yosemite establish a continuum that makes it more effortless than ever to just get things done. I like it and I look forward to Apple continuing to improve it, both with changes to future phones and to the operating system.
Apple on Friday, Sept. 19, will release two new iPhone models: the iPhone 6, with a 4.7-inch screen, up from 4 inches for the current iPhone 5s and 5c; and the iPhone 6 Plus, boasting a 5.5-inch screen. The iPhone 6 starts at $199 with a two-year contract, while the 6 Plus starts at $299 with a two-year contract.
