Surprising new features of iPhone 6 revealed

EETimes recently had a discussion with Appetizer Mobile LLC, one of the top iOS app developers, who had a number of things to say about the upcoming iPhone 6. CEO Jordan Edelson says his information is based on the specifications that have come along for new phones as well as specific product features that will be a part of app development.

First, the new phone will be slimmer – so slim that Edelson believes the 3.5mm audio jack will be dispensed with altogether. Instead, headphones will be linked into the lightning port. This will come as a surprise to users without Bluetooth headphones, assuming that Apple does not ship some sort of adapter along with it.

In addition, it may mean that officially-licensed headphones would be the only option at launch, though headphone manufacturers will certainly be quick to create alternatives.

The lightning port will not also be the primary option for charging the phone – the iPhone 6 is expected to come with a wireless charging pad. Edelson said that he expects a stylish charging pad, though it is unclear if it will work seamlessly with existing wireless chargers or is a proprietary Apple system.

Many of his other predictions are similar to what has been expected – a scratch-resistant 400ppi sapphire display, 2GB of internal memory for the A8 processor and expanded flash memory of up to 128GB.
