Most Useful New iPhone Features

Most Useful New iPhone Features

The following features are new or enhanced for the Apple iPhone 6 smart-phone. They can help you use your iPhone for more daily activities, get more performance from your iPhone, or make your iPhone easier to use.

Camera Optical Image Stabilization

iPhone Camera Optical Image Stabilization

Miniature sensors in the lens measure and analyze camera vibrations (shake). The system applies corrective motion to the camera lens that shifts the image parallel to the focal plane. Motion blur is canceled, and the photo image is sharper. Also stabilizes video.

For iPhone 6 Plus only. The iPhone 6 has only electronic, not optical, image stabilization.

1080p 60fps Video Recording

iPhone 1080p 60fps Video Recording

Apple sets the default video recording frame rate at 30 fps (frames per second), which is standard for most cameras and smart-phones. Higher video rate produces a smoother and sharper image. To set the iPhone video to record 1080-pixel resolution at 60 fps: Settings >> Photos & Camera >> Record Video at 60fps: On.

On the iPhone 6, videos at 60 fps use 50 percent more storage space than do videos at 30 fps. The iPhone also records 240fps Slow-Motion video at 720-pixel.

Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Wi-Fi Calling

iPhone Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Wi-Fi Calling

Most major wireless carriers offer voice service using the 4G LTE network. It is a packet-switched protocol, similar to the Internet, that provides high-quality voice calls and services superior to traditional wireless voice networks, such as 3G which is a circuit-switched network.

Other benefits are faster call setup times and improved battery life over other VoIP apps, such as Skype. VoLTE will work easily and seamlessly with voice over Wi-Fi, which most major carriers also provide.

As VoLTE is introduced by the carriers, some calls might be dropped, inter-carrier calls will be limited by the slower network, and both the caller and receiver must use VoLTE cellphones to make calls with the VoLTE features.

If one of the VoLTE callers enters an area without 4G LTE service, the voice call performance will drop to that of the lesser service.

Apple Pay

iPhone Apple Pay

Apple Pay is a digital wallet and mobile payment service from Apple that lets shoppers make retail payments using an iPhone 6. The contactless mobile system replaces the credit or debit card at point-of-sale terminals.

The wireless data service communicates with the point-of-sale terminal using near field communication (NFC, a contactless radio data communication that works within a distance of 3.9 inches (10 cm)). The iPhone 6 has a Touch ID sensor to confirm authorized use of Apple Pay by the device.

To use Apple Pay, the user must register a credit or debit card with Apple Pay.

Most major banks in the United States and the United Kingdom participate in Apple Pay. Some of the major retail partners are Coca-Cola vending, Home Depot, Marriott, McDonald’s, Staples, Subway, Toys ‘R’ Us, and Walgreens.

Display Zoom

iPhone Display Zoom

Display Zoom is an optional display mode on the iPhone that shows larger text and controls. The standard iPhone display mode fits more information on the screen. But many iPhone users feel the larger text and bigger icons are easier to read.

To enable Display Zoom, go to: Settings > Display & Brightness > Display Zoom: Display Mode. The Zoom magnification defaults to 200 percent but can be set from 100 to 500 percent.
