iPhone 6 in White, space gray, gold

Global connectivity

The iPhone 6 has up to 20 LTE bands, compared to 13 on the iPhone 5s. It supports faster LTE of up to 150Mbps and Voice over LTE (VoLTE).

The new phone supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac, which is 3x faster than previous generation Wi-Fi. You can also now make calls via a Wi-Fi connection.

Your iPhone. Your wallet

Apple has built-in NFC capabilities into the iPhone 6. While it took its time to introduce this contactless technology into its smartphone, Apple’s execution seems spot on with the introduction of Apple Pay. It works together with Touch ID.

Apple Pay will offer a secure, private, contactless payment platform, built into the iPhone 6. This service will be available in October.

Banks namely Bank of America, CapitalOne, Chase, Citi and Wells Fargo already support Apple Pay and more will be coming.

You’ll be able to use Apple Pay at over 220,000 locations all over the US and EU, including Bloomingdales, Disney Store, Macy’s, McDonald’s, Nike and more.

Online plaforms like Groupon, OpenTable, Starbucks, Target and Uber also support Apple Pay.
