Apple, during announcement of the iPhone 4s claimed that they will never increase the screen size more than 3.5″. Anything above that size is not comfortable for a person to use. But hey, Apple broke its promise with the release of iPhone 5 which had a bigger 4″ screen.
But again, it was small compared to Android devices which had 4.5″ to 5″ displays. But now, the new iPhone 6 has a 4.7″ display with a weird resolution which is just slighty better than HD and the iPhone 6+ with a 5.5″ display with a FHD resolution. Apple said it will never increase the screen size yet they just announced two devices with 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays which are popular screen sizes for Android phones.
NFC is another thing that Android has had for many years. You could find smartphones with NFC technology even in 2011. There were a lot of Android smartphones which had this technology, especially the Galaxy S2 which had a battery with NFC technology.
The new iPhone 6 has NFC technology. Yes, after 4 years of Android smartphones of having it. Tim Cook said it is a revolutionary feature because you can make payments directly from your phone. Yes, it is a revolutionary feature for Apple and iOS users but an old thing for Android users.
Higher resolution screens
Apple not only said it will never increase screen size but it also said that Retina display with a resolution of 960×640 pixels is perfect. But look, now Apple has announced the iPhone 6 will Full HD resolution. FHD 1020X1920 pixels is a huge resolution compared to to 640×960 pixels.
Apple finally released its own version of smart watch and it is called Apple watch.
