iPhone 6 Plus- MGAM2LL/A* - iPhone7,1 - A1522 2817
The iPhone 6 Plus models (which users sometimes refer to as iPhone 6+), regardless of network compatibility, have a 5.5" (diagonal) widescreen multi-touch IPS LED-backlit 1920x1080 native resolution (401 ppi) "Retina HD" display, dual cameras -- a rear 8 megapixel, 1080p "iSight" camera with 1.5 micron pixels, an f/2.2 aperture, and both Optical image stabilization and "autofocus with Focus Pixels" (phase detection autofocus capability) as well as a front 1.2 megapixel, 720p "FaceTime" camera.
The iPhone 6 Plus is available in three metallic color options -- "silver," which has a white glass front and a silver colored aluminum back (pictured); "gold," which has a white glass front and a gold colored aluminum back; and "space" gray, which has a black glass front and a medium toned gray aluminum back. Regardless of color, each uses a "unibody" design with gently rounded sides reminiscent of the earlier iPod touch 5th Gen, but with glass that beautifully curves toward the edges for a "completely smooth and continuous surface." It also includes the "Touch ID" fingerprint sensor embedded in the "home" button.
This iPhone 6 Plus model is powered by a 1.4 GHz 64-bit "Apple A8" processor and has 1 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16 GB, 64 GB, or 128 GB of flash storage. It also supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE (4G), and NFC for Apple Pay financial transactions. It has a bottom-mounted headphone jack and uses a "Lightning" port to connect to a Mac, PC, dock, or power adapter.
