iPhone 6 Arrives In Nashville

Line For iPhone

Iphone 6 For Sale In Nashville

Stopping off after driving my kids to school, I couldn’t help but notice the long line outside the local Verizon Wireless building filled with major fans of the Apple brand waiting in line for the iPhone 6. It struck me as something that is important to artists and music fans and audio junkies. Why not? Many of us are involved in recording and certainly listening to music on our devices and I am personally interested, and hopefully you are too, in the ability to listen to podcasts like The Nashville Rocks Podcast on your iPhone 6. There has been much hype about the launch of the new device and luckily plenty of information available out on the interwebs on the capabilities of the new device.

So how does the iPhone 6 stack up with concern for music and podcasting?

The audio playback specs, as provided by Apple, go like this:

Audio formats supported: AAC (8 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), HE-AAC, MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV

User-configurable maximum volume limit

iPhone 6 and 6 PlusSo what is the user configurable maximum volume limit? Not sure, but I bet you it goes up to 11! No matter what though, your choice of ear buds or headphones will go a long way in your listening experience. I can see myself sitting down with a nice set of Grados, listening to tunes from new Nashville Rocks artists. I also like the standard iPhone EarPods. They have good tone and stay in your ears while exercising. If you have to be cool, you can try the Powerbeats by Dr. Dre In‑Ear Headphones or the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio Over-Ear Headphones.

This page from apple will show you direct comparisons with the two new models versus ones already on the market: https://www.apple.com/iphone/compare/. These new iPhone 6 phones, according to Apple, can handle up to 50 hours of audio listening on a battery charge and up to 80 hours on the plus model.

I did stop to chat briefly with a few folks in the line this morning. Two fellas told me they wanted the iPhone 6 while another (older) fella said he really wanted the 6 plus. I asked him why and he said he was old and needed the bigger screen. So whatever your need of the bigger screen or better camera features, the 6 Plus has a much bigger footprint coming in at a considerable 6.22 inches by 3.06 inches. These dimensions may make some people really think about being able to stuff it in a pocket, at least for guys.

Other features in the new models include touch Id, apple pay, better screen toughness (one many of you need), better camera, better video (even with time lapse ability), iOS 8 software, faster Wi-Fi, Faster LTE  and more.

Regardless of all this new tech and the willingness of people to stand in line for hours to get these new phones, the apps still work the same, so I hope to see you using your new iPhone 6 to head to the iTunes Podcasts app to listen to The Nashville Rocks Podcast.
