iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

This is a re-cap of some features of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.  Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus come in Silver, Gold and Space Gray.  The phones come in 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB options.  There is a new 8-megapixel iSight camera but only the iPhone 6 Plus has image stabilization.  There is an A8 chip with 64-bit architecture which powers this device.  The fingerprint identity sensor is used to secure your device and will be used with the new Apple Pay.  The iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch diagonal Retina HD display and the iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5 inch diagonal Retina HD display.  If you have your iPhone 6 already, that is great.  I figured the best thing to do while I wait another month for my iPhone 6 Plus was to write about it.
