Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 6 together with iOS 8 has been a moment that many iPhone lovers are waiting for. To give a hint of the same, a video on YouTube has been put up by Tom Rich that explains and demonstrates how the new version of the iOS will run on the much awaited iPhone 6.
Facts about the video
A YouTube video shows the iPhone 6 with a developer preview of the iOS 8 installed. Also, the video makes the comparison of the iPhone 6 with iPhone 5S and the iPod, and with HTC One (M8) and a Samsung Galaxy S5 to give indications on the form factor.
The device used in the video is a dummy version of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6; also, the display running on the dummy iPhone is not real. Chroma key screen has been used to superimpose the video. If one looks at the video carefully, a red dot on the home button could be noticed indicating a tracker to keep the video synchronized with the device in hand, according to a report from Deccan Chronicle.
Another interesting fact is that the rear panel of the iPhone 6 used in the video does not have the Apple logo. Also, after viewing the video at 1:51, one could easily identify that the iOS 8 developer preview video has been taken from an iPod. The iPhone 6 used is automatically typing a message on the display.
Overall, the video demonstration is good, and editing is amazing to dodge anyone. The intent of the video is not to show the iPhone 6, but to show the working of iOS8 on the large screen iPhone device.
