Apple Announces the iPhone 6September 9, 2014
Today left many Apple users with a lot to be excited about. In a live presentation, Apple announced that they would be releasing the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus but if that’s not enough to get excited about, they also announced a new piece of technology that people have been waiting and anticipating for a few years now; The Apple watch is going to be released this coming 2015.
Let’s break down some of the information now so you can get to pre ordering your new phone or watch.
iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus
iPhone 6 isn’t simply bigger — it’s better in every way. Larger, yet dramatically thinner. More powerful, but remarkably power efficient. With a smooth metal surface that seamlessly meets the new Retina HD display. It’s one continuous form where hardware and software function in perfect unison, creating a new generation of iPhone that’s better by any measure.

iPhone 6 Plus – 5.5 inch display
In creating iPhone 6, we scrutinized every element and material. That’s how we arrived at a smooth, continuous form. A thinner profile made possible by our thinnest display yet. And intuitively placed buttons. All made with beautiful anodized aluminum, stainless steel, and glass. It’s a thousand tiny details that add up to something big. Or in this case, two big things: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

iPhone 6 Plus – 7.1mm
The size of the new, higher-resolution Retina HD displays on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus may be the first thing you notice. But what you experience is so much more. With innovations that deliver higher contrast, dual‑domain pixels for more accurate color at wider viewing angles, and an improved polarizer, these are the thinnest, most advanced Multi‑Touch displays we’ve ever made.

iPhone 6 features an A8 chip built on second-generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture. Its incredible power is enhanced by an M8 motion coprocessor that efficiently measures your activity from advanced sensors, including a new barometer. So you can do more, for longer periods of time, with better performance and battery life.

Every day, people take more photos with iPhone than with any other camera. That’s because the iSight camera makes it so remarkably easy. Now, in addition to its large 1.5-micron pixels and ƒ/2.2 aperture, the world’s most popular camera is packed with new technologies to help everyone take more great photos.
To make it just as easy to shoot amazing video, we added new features like the option to capture 1080p HD at 60 fps, 240-fps slo-mo, and time-lapse video. And you can shoot HD video and then watch the stunning results on the large Retina HD display.
It’s not just iPhone 6 that’s bigger. The world’s most advanced mobile operating system has made a huge leap, too. iOS 8 has new capabilities and functions that let you do things you could only imagine before, like using Siri to control the devices in your home or using your health and fitness apps to communicate with your doctor. Developers now have deeper access and more tools to bring some of the amazing new features of iOS 8 to their apps. And it all looks great on the large Retina HD display.
iPhone 6 will start at $199 on a contract
iPhone 6 Plus starting at $299 on a contract
Pre orders start Sept 12th and the phone is slated for a Sept 19th release.
Now as exciting as some of that information is let’s get down to the really cool part that Apple fans can’t wait for, the Apple Watch. The watch is going to come in a variety of styles to suit the needs of many different users.
