However, on September 9, năm ngoái, Apple eliminated the gold color option for the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, và iPhone 6 Plus. On the used market, of course, gold remains available.

All of these models have sầu a bottom mounted tai nghe jachồng, microphone, Lightning connector, and a single speaker. Each ships, or shipped, with "EarPod" headphones that include the integrated Remote & Mic, too.

It is worth noting that there also have sầu been a small number of reports of bent iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s models over the years.

However, the "bendgate" discussion was louder for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus than earlier models,no doubt at least partially because one early reviewer from Wired bent his iPhone 6 Plus in testing. It also is worth noting that this reviewer "probably" sat on it.

Apple officially stated that "with normal use a bkết thúc in iPhone is extremely rare" và in the first six days of shipping only "nine customers" reported a bent iPhone 6 Plus to the company. It is an interesting qualifier that the company acknowledged the number of bent iPhone 6 Plus models alone rather than together with the iPhone 6, but this may be in direct response to lớn Wired"s findings for the iPhone 6 Plus, specifically.
