The TrackR app looks and works great on the new iPhone 6, 6s and 6s Plus to continue to help end your search for misplaced items, but what else is new and improved with the latest release of the iPhone? The new model is full of unique, improved and even more user-friendly attributes, but some of these are hard to know about just by purchasing the phone. Some of our favorite new features and improvements are the following:

 

Optical Image Stabilization: In order to produce less blurry and higher quality photos, the new iPhone 6s plus involves OIS, which hones in on sensors built in on the phone to avoid shakes and ensure a stable image. This feature applies both to video and photo for the latest apple product, but it is only in the most recent version (the iPhone 6s plus).

VoLTE/WiFi calling: VoLTE (Voice over LTE) and WiFi calling are two options available with the new iPhone software in order to progress the quality of voice calls as well as keep them from dropping. These options are both designed by optimizing the bandwidth being used during phone calls as well as avoiding using your carrier’s network connection, which is often accused of being inconsistent and spotty regardless of who the provider is.

 

NFC chip (apple pay): Near-Field Communication is the more recently acclaimed wallet-killer that is making its way into the mainstream technology hits, such as the new iPhone. It automatically detects another device that has NFC (no need to pair or connect to bluetooth), and it has a couple of other features in addition to being able to make exchange-free purchases, but this is what’s available in the new iPhone. Simply take your device out near the payment-accepting NFC pad, and you’ll be able to buy your goods without ever reaching for a physical form of payment.

Opt out of message threads: The new software has made it easier than ever (and possible, which is an upgrade already) to opt out of group text messages. Perhaps your group is sending out an invite for a night out and you are unable to attend. Rather than just mute the conversation, you may now select to completely leave the conversation simply by going to the “details” tab on the message.

 

Medical ID: the new iPhone software introduced an application that allows storage for personal medical data. It prompts and allows questions to be answered in order to keep track of particular details that can be accessed by the iPhone user at any time as well as nearby peers in case of an emergency.
