The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus become officially available on Friday, but of course fans can’t wait to take the two new smartphones out for a spin. The folks at UnderKG apparently got their hands on an iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and have posted videos (spotted by Mac Rumors) showing how the two iPhone 6 models work.
iPhone 6 video highlights features
The first video is about the iPhone 6, which is the 4.7-inch model. They tried out the gold model, looking at the display, the updated Touch ID fingerprint scanner, the new power button and the camera lens, which now sticks out from the smartphone. They noted that the power button is now located on the phone’s right side, thus making one-handed use of the bigger display easier.
They also compared the iPhone 6 to the iPhone 5S and even the iPhone 3G. Also Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and Alpha were compared to it. A number of the apps on the phone were demonstrated, and they confirmed that the iPhone 6 was real by making a call through FaceTime. Here’s the full video:
iPhone 6 Plus video shows wraparound display
The iPhone 6 plus is the 5.5-inch model, and UnderKG showed off the same features as they did with the iPhone 6. They also demonstrated the wraparound display and showed how the power button was related and how the volume buttons have been redesigned.
They demonstrated a number of phone apps and showed how the home screen has more space thanks to the bigger screen. In addition, they showed off the landscape mode to further show off how the phone makes the most of its huge phablet-sized screen. Here’s the full video:
Both the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus go up for sale on Friday, and those who preordered them will receive them on that day. Demand for both of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s new smartphones has been strong right out of the gate, with shipping dates for the larger iPhone 6 Plus quickly slipping into next month and even November on some mobile carriers.
