Apple iPhone 6 (8th Gen) - 2014

The Apple iPhone 6 was considered the most radically different model since the design of the iPhone 4. The iPhone 6 was taller, wider, thinner, and rounded at the corners. The change in dimensions was due to a desire to increase screen size while maintaining the same aspect ratio and pixel density. Another external change was the relocation of the power button from the top of the phone to the right side of the case. A software addition included a double tap gesture, making the top half of the larger screen accessible for those with smaller hands.

The Apple iPhone 6 (8th Gen) has height of 5.44” (138.1 mm), width of 2.64” (67 mm), depth of .27” (6.9 mm), and weighs 4.6 oz (129 g). The screen size is 4.7” (120 mm) diagonal with a resolution of 1334 x 750 px at 326 ppi.
