Apple just released the iPhone 6 which had been waited for with zeal. The response by a market has not been in any way underwhelming. But with many features that come with it, it is rather hard to know all that comes with the iPhone 6. I will reveal some of the little known features of the phone.

1. Battery life

3. Bending

This is a feature that has given critics something to talk about. The iPhone 6 is slim and has aneasy to bend metal casing. Critics say that the this is a tad too much as there have been cases where the phone bent while in the front pocket of the owners jacket without much pressure being applied on it.

4. Camera improvement

This is by speeding up the auto-focus speed of the phone. Though it is still 8 mega pixels, it has better face recognition and more control over exposure to light.

Video options have been improved in the phone, and it’s now possible to capture 1080p HD video at 60fps. There’s also a new 240fps slo-mo mode, and time-lapse video, which was introduced with iOS 8.
