The iPad Air 2, iPhone 6 plus and Apple Watch, voted best devices of 2014
Time flies by and while a few weeks ago we were looking forward to autumn to get to know the new Apple devices , now we are entering the final stretch of the year. In a little over a month we will have said goodbye to 2014 and, as usual, some of the world’s best known specialist media are starting to publish their lists of what they consider to be the best devices of the year, including the iPhone 6 Plus, the iPad Air 2 and the Apple Watch .
The prestigious Time magazine, which is now also present on the web, has already published a list with the 10 best technological innovations of 2014 , among which are some of the devices launched by Apple, such as the iPhone 6 Plus, the iPad Air 2 and the Apple Watch. And it’s not surprising, since they have some very good features and formed a revolution when they were presented, although in the case of the smart watch it won’t reach the market until spring 2015.
But it must be said that although these are what Time considers the best devices launched by Apple this year, not all of them are at the top of the list. However, the Apple Watch is the one that heads it, because it was a device that users had been waiting for a long time and it has arrived through the big door.
Apple has three devices on Time’s Top 10 Gadgets for 2014 list
If we take a look at the list published by Time we see that the iPad Air 2 is in ninth position . From the new generation of the 9.7-inch tablet they say that they have been able to make it very thin and incredibly powerful thanks to, among other things, the A8X chip, an improved version of the one that is part of the iPhone 6, and its 2GB RAM.
To find the next Apple device we have to look a little further up, and that is that in position number 5 is the iPhone 6 Plus . The guys at Time magazine claim that this is the best smartphone ever created by the Cupertino guys , as not only have they increased the quality and size of their screen to 5.5 inches, but they have also managed to incorporate some very powerful components such as the A8 chip, an improved camera with OIS, greater autonomy and an incredible user experience. It seems that the problems affecting some units such as the Bendgate or those related to the camera, have not been a reason for this device to be left out of the list.
Last but not least, but rather the opposite, we find the Apple Watch presiding over the list. The smartwatch has been chosen as the most innovative technological device of 2014 by Time magazine . They say that Apple wants to revolutionize the wearable market as it did in its day with the mobile phone and iPhone. Therefore, when the Apple Watch reaches the market in 2015, they expect it to become a revolution, something that they will surely achieve.
What other devices and gadgets are listed?
Alongside the iPhone 6 Plus, the iPad Air 2 and the Apple Watch, we find another 7 devices that have been presented in 2014 and have attracted worldwide attention for their innovation. These include , the Ring Video Doorbell, the DJI Phantom Vision+, the SmartThings Starter Kit and the Mophie Space Pack , a battery-powered case that extends the life of the iPhone.
On the other hand, the guys at Applesfera point out that there is also room for other devices such as the Jawbone UP3 bracelet, the Oculus Rift DK2 or the GoPro Hero4 , the latest generation of the all-round camera for action and sport. But as our colleagues say, the most striking thing on this list is the presence of the iPad Air 2, the iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch.
