The new iPhones are here; earlier today, Apple officially launched both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and while we’re tempted to start calling these the “big” and “little” new iPhones, that’s a bit a misnomer, as compared to previous generations, both new Apple smartphones soundly fall in that same “big” category.

Size may be the most obvious factor separating these two iPhones, a consideration that spills over into categories like screen resolution, but that’s not the only difference between the two. To help you with an at-a-glance breakdown of some of the key iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus specs, we’ve created the chart below, detailing many of the ways these two iOS handsets match up, as well as the important areas where the two differ.
