Apple's iPhone 6 will not arrive until fall but more information and mockups appear by the day. More importantly, a recent video released shows consumers what they can expect from the iPhone 6 while running on iOS 8. The video provides a good insight on how the user interface will be like and what type of user experience the iPhone 6 promises. Can the upcoming Apple flagship be a killer? 

To give an overview of what the iPhone 6 will look and feel like when running on iOS 8, Tom Rich has uploaded a video on YouTube. The video offers a demonstration of the iOS with possible specifications of the iPhone 6. The YouTube footage features a developer preview of the iOS 8 installed on the iPhone 6. Apart from the interface review, the video also shows a review of the iPhone 6 compared with the iPod and the iPhone 5s. The device was also compared to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8 to provide more details about its form factor.

It is important to clarify that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 used in the video is a dummy. The display running is also not the actual device but a render of the upcoming flagship. The developer used a Chroma key screen to superimpose the video. If users will look closely at the video, there is a red dot button signaling the tracker to ensure proper synchronization of the video according to Deccan Chronicle.

People should also notice the missing Apple logo on the iPhone 6's rear panel featured in the video. Following the footage beyond 1:51, people can figure out immediately that the iOS 8 developer preview shown was created through an iPod. The device featured is typing a message automatically on the screen. 

Many sources considered the video demonstration as an excellent way to show what the iPhone 6 will be like. Some also said that editing was impressive providing a realistic showcase. Developer previews often show a good idea on the upcoming features of devices especially since early versions of the iOS platform has been provided to these parties already. Analysts placed a $199.99 price tag on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 with the 5.5-inch to come with $100 premium. 

Apple has not released an official announcement about the device yet.
