As with any smartphone in 2014, there’s no more important feature than the camera. It’s what we use to take photos with our friends and families, how we remember what we ate and what our kids looked like way back when. The camera has always been one of the iPhone’s most impressive feature, and this year, Apple says it’s gotten a huge upgrade. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus feature new sensors, better optics, new technologies that aid in stabilization and HDR, even slower slo-mo video, and much more. They’re meant to destroy your point-and-shoot, your camcorder, and maybe even your DSLR.
