The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ have already caused quite a stir since being launched a little over a month ago. For the first time, Apple are going head to head with rivals Samsung with the larger handset formats. Innovation and technology media have had a field day reviewing the new handsets. So has Apple come down on the side of innovation or a development of the phone’s capability to deliver better multimedia merely as a progression of what came before?
The iPhone curves into the edges, making it more comfortable to hold and typing is much easier because of the wider phone allowing a wider keyboard on the touchpad screen. Overall, reports suggest the phone is bigger and better than its predecessors however there’s little in terms of technological leaps. It’s a progression of previous models in Apple’s mobile phone range rather than a leap in mobile technology that the initial iPhone created. The slick design of the glass front is also highly attractive. The iPhone 6 has a screen dimension of 4.7inches, 1334x750px screen, making it easier to type with and easier to play with apps and photographic tinkering.
The verge created a fantastic video review making the most of their multimedia skills to show off some of the new iPhone 6 features and how it differs from previous iPhones. you can watch it here:

The iPhone remains a luxury product in the mobile telecommunications market but in the UK it remains far more expensive than in the USA. As a result, most phone operators offer a 0% two year loan to cover the cost of the device. Apple’s last upgrade saw the launch of the iPhone 5c which was made with cheaper materials and offered a less expensive product offering but it was poorly perceived by consumers and sales were disappointing. Like designer clothes, designer glasses and other luxury goods, people purchasing Apple items expect quality every time.
iPhones, Like Armani, DKNY or Tom Ford brands of designer glasses are often purchased online. Customers might compare prices online between mobile networks as they do when shopping for designer glasses or clothes as well. It’s the same story when looking at home improvements. Even though someone might have a recommendation for a company to build a loft conversion, they’re likely to look online at the company’s credentials and a portfolio of loft conversion projects that they’ve completed. Many construction loft conversion specialists in Hertfordshire will therefore get business indirectly from the power of their website even if they initial contact with customers comes from a word of mouth recommendation. Judging by recent iPhone reviews, this might be the best place in the house to get a mobile network signal with the device.
This is why companies are still using recommended web design companies to build, maintain and update their websites. Professional web design companies are often as good as the staff they employ and can operate from smaller towns and villages to provide cheaper alternatives to big city agencies. This is because of lower rental costs and overheads, meaning saving are passed onto clients. It’s not hard to find an expert web design agency in Hertfordshire than can offer the dame service as a London agency. The might then employ a strong Internet business promoter to help with SEO. This would help the company’s website to get a higher positioning on Google. A first page positioning on Google would almost certainly lead to a large increase in business coming to the company from online referrals.
This is why website innovation is as important as mobile phone innovation when it comes to keeping a solid business performing effectively.
