It almost seems as if the world has gone crazy over the new and improved, thinner and larger, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. In fact, when looking at statistics, this years iPhone sold over 10 million phones without the help of the Chinese market. That is more than what the iPhone 5s sold just one year before (9 million iPhone’s), and all the sales happened within a matter of 3 days. In fact, so many sales were happening when the pre-order date was set that Apple’s website crashed.
Despite the price, many apple users are leaning toward the iPhone 6. It seems in this generation of tech users that larger phones are preferred, even though only a decade ago they were considered “hard to handle” and were heavily scrutinized. In its favor, the iPhone 6 plus is the thinnest large display phone on the market at only 7.1 mm in thickness.
The iPhone has come a long way. Amazingly, it has only been 7 years since the first iPhone was released in 2007. The original iPhone was only 4.5 inches tall (as compared to iPhone 6 at 5.44 inches and iPhone 6 Plus at 6.22 inches), but was 11.6 mm thick, over 4mm thicker than the 6 Plus.
The new iPhones have some impressive features, but we’ll have to wait to find out if the iPhone craze continues, or burns out as fast as it came.
