Many they say that the new iPhone 6 Plus is so big, it's hard to hold it with one hand.
But is it worth buying? Curious?
Let's start with the video of the iPhone 6.
Apple's "Retina HD" found in both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus boasts impressive resolution for a phone. The smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6 has a resolution of 750 x 1334 for a pixel density of 326 ppi.

Bringing a large number of system changes that many users have been begging apple for years.
iOS 8 brings a large number of features to iOS that users have been asking for years.
With ios 8 apple now allows applications to have widgets in notification center. But that isn't the only change happening to motivation center on IOS 8, allowing users to interact with notifications, for instance you can send a text message right from notification center!
The coolest feature coming to iOS 8 requires OS X Yosemite, and it's called Continuity.
This further closes the gap between iOS and OS X. Continuity allows you to begin typing an email, text message, and what not on your iPhone/iPad, and finish it on you "Mac." But wait, you can't send/receive text messages on your computer what are you crazy! Is what you might be saying. Nope with iOS they also allow you to take phone calls on your "Mac" as well as answer and send text messages.
Apple has already opened up Touch ID API to developers to harness the full potential of using your fingerprint as an encryption method.
Furthermore apple also has added a brand new Health App to bring all your Health information together in one centralized location. The new M8 coprocessor found in the iphone 6 and the iphone 6 plus, allows the user to use the phone as a pedometer. I personally love this idea of harnessing the power of the m8. Many android handsets already have this feature like the Google Nexus 5, which I own and I love keeping track of how many steps I have taken, how far I've walked or ran on a particular day.
As expected, OS X Yosemite public beta is now available for download.
The public beta is available to the first million users who have signed up for OS X Beta program.
The build number is 14A299l, which is newer build compared to OS X Yosemite Preview 4 build (Build number – 14A298i) that was released earlier in the week.

We have all been anticipating the lunch of a brand new MacBook Air for a while now. This rumor is also re-enforced with the fact earlier this month intel began to ship its new Broadwell chips to manufacturers like apple. Bordwell brings on the great features of Haswell but with less heat. It's part of intel's Tick-Tock process.
A die shrinkage isn't all that's coming to broadwell, some minor video improvements have been confirmed for the chip. Which adds VP8 hardware decoding, as well as two independent stream decoders to boost video decoding performance and speed. The TDP can be as little as 3.5W and as high as 4.5 Watts.
This is great news for apple! despite only being dual core processors, these pack a powerful punch, allowing apple to create a smaller MacBook without compromising size, battery life or performance. In fact some rumors clam that it'll be even thinner then the current MacBook Air! Stunning!
Let me know if you're as excited as I am about what apple has in store for us in the upcoming months!
