The new iPhone 6 may be the most popular version of Apple’s smartphone since the original was released way back in 2007. At 4.7 inches, the screen is bigger than ever, and with a maximum hard drive space of 128GB, there’s more room than ever. The phone might just be able to reach the magic number of 70 MILLION units sold by the end of the year.
With so many new iPhone 6 users out there, we thought it might be a good time to let people know about a few of the hidden gems that Apple has put into the device. This will be an eye opener for those people who are getting their hands on iPhones for the first time, but Apple has also added enough new tricks to amaze even the most hardened iPhone veterans.
Apple Pay is linked to your credit card, making it totally effortless to pay for anything that you come across while using your phone. While for the paranoid, that might make it seem as if your phone can reach directly into your wallet and start making charges, the added ease will soon erase any of your lingering doubts.
This is a really useful feature for messaging people that will change the way that we talk. With the iPhone 6 you can now forward a text that you got from one person to somebody else. Think of all the possibilities. Share important updates! Disseminate drunk texts with ease!
Respond to Texts Without Unlocking the Phone
Isn’t it annoying to constantly unlock your phone when people keep on sending you text messages? Now the iPhone 6 lets you respond to those texts right from the lock screen. The only thing you have to worry about now is someone else picking up your phone and answering. Despite that risk, users apparently love the new feature.
See The Battery Use for Each App
This may seem like something you’d take for granted, but when you’re on 15% battery without a charger in sight, you may want to know exactly which battery hogs you should kill before they drain what little juice your phone still has left in it. The only question is why Apple didn’t include this sooner.
Share Your Location With a Friend
Want a friend who’s looking for you to know where you are by looking at the map on their iPhone? Now you can share you location so that they won’t have to wander around trying to find you.
Self Destructing Messages
Imagine being a secret agent and needing to send information that quickly needs to be destroyed as soon as its read. Ok, that’s melodramatic. Maybe you just want to send someone a sexy selfie that you don’t want to stick around forever. Apple has given you the perfect way to do that by letting you create self destructing pictures and audio to put in your texts. The person you send it to will get a window to see what you sent, and then it disappears forever.
