It may be showing its age now that the iPhone 7 has arrived, but the iPhone 6 is still a smartphone worthy of your attention.

Apple iPhone 6: Specs

Given the average lifespan of a typical smartphone is about two years, the fact the iPhone 6 is still available is a testament to the intelligent design Apple managed to integrate into its 2014 flagship. While it can't hold a candle to the iPhone 7 on the performance front, if you're looking for an affordable, basic iPhone but are reluctant to shift to the smaller screen of the iPhone SE, the iPhone 6 could fit the bill.

Apple iPhone 6: Buy outright

Apple has officially taken the iPhone 6 off of its product lineup, but you can still grab the phone from third party sellers, or on contract from the major telcos. Looking at the prices though, you may be better off looking at a more recent iPhone model if you want to buy the device new, as Apple smartphones tend not to depreciate in value at the same rate as Android devices.

Apple iPhone 6: Review

Apple's iPhone 6 was applauded when it launched for its improved camera, TouchID fingerprint scanner security and Retina Display. Things have improved across all three departments in subsequent versions, but the iPhone 6 can still hold its own against other two-year-old devices.

"Built around the A8 chip, this is Apple’s most innovative camera to date, featuring a specially designed video encoder and image signal processor. One of the most impressive features for snap happy fans is the new Focus Pixels, which provides better face detection, continuous autofocus, and noise reduction, all giving you clearer, more defined, and better quality images."

Ultimately, the iPhone 6 is a dated phone in the age of the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7, and one that hasn't really seen its price drop to match its age, either on plan or outright.
