The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the latest in a line of Apple phones stretching back to the original in 2007. Year after year, release after release, they've grown bigger, faster, more powerful, and better. You can see it in the specs and feel it in the experience. Now, some people believe specs mean everything. That you can sum up any phone, any device, by the rows on a spreadsheet. Other people believe specs mean nothing. That it is experience and experience alone that defines a device. The truth, as is often the case, lies smack in between. Specs matter in that they're needed to deliver an experience. If the specs aren't sufficient, the experience will suffer. If they specs aren't utilized, then they don't matter. Since Apple uniquely controls everything from the chipset to the software and services, they're best positioned to wring every ounce of experience out of their specs. So, with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, what are those specs?
