Optical image stabilization

If you’re lucky enough to have snagged an iPhone 6 Plus, you’ll probably notice that your photos are a lot less blurry. Why? Apple is using a combination of the A8 SoC, the M8 motion coprocessor, and the lens of the camera itself to offer optical image stabilization. Your phone is sensing the shaking of your hand, and it’s compensating for that with image processing as well as movements of the camera lens. The result is clearer pictures — even in low light situations. The best part? It’s completely automatic, so you don’t have to change a thing.

1080p 60fps video recording

You’ve been able to record 1080p video on smartphones for a while now, but Apple wants to push the limits with this release. With both models of the new iPhone, you can record all of your videos in full 1080p HD at either 30 fps or 60 fps. Crisp, clear, and virtually no motion blur to speak of. If you’re recording your kid’s soccer game, or shooting from a moving vehicle, this will make all the difference in the world. Even better, the slo-mo mode now supports upwards of 240 fps, so you can capture an insane amount of detail in your home movies.

Apple Pay

Other companies have been trying to get NFC payments to stick in the US for years. It hasn’t taken off as of yet, but hopefully Apple Pay will change all of that. Apple has slapped an NFC chip its new phones, and partnered with companies like McDonald’s, Walgreens, and Staples to help make NFC payments a reality across the United States. It’s still too early to tell whether or not Apple Pay will catch on, but just the idea of using your phone to pay for your sandwich is incredibly novel and exciting to most of us.
