Apple Explains How to Identify iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Models

Share:

Apple has updated their ‘Identifying iPhone models’ support page to include details for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The page details specific phone features which inform users they are purchasing legitimate iPhones and not well-made knock-offs, which are prevalent in places like Asia and also make their way into local classifieds.

We have come a long way since the original iPhone back in 2007—except the puny 16GB entry capacity which needs to go:

Apple this morning announced over 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units sold in its first weekend, a new record for the company.

    There is a typo in the “More details: The display is 5.5 inches (diagonal).” boxes. First one should be 4.7 🙂

  • Thanks, fixed! Blame the lack of coffee 😉

    What does it mean where you put a model number but not a type in brackets after it (like GSM or CDMA)?

    I agree with the 16GB comment. It doesn’t make sense and should be 32, so each amount doubles the lower amount. Going from 16 to 64 is crazy. 16 isn’t enough, 64 is too much for me.
