Bigger than bigger
Yesterday, Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced two new iPhones at the September 2014 Special Event held at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino. Apple's choice of the historic site - where Steve Jobs launched the first Apple Macintosh computer in 1984 - was a sign that something big would be announced.
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.
Display: The iPhone 6 has an all-new 4.7-inch (diagonal) Retina HD display with a 1334-by-750-pixel resolution at 326 ppi while the iPhone 6 Plus is equipped with an impressive 5.5-inch (diagonal) Retina HD Display, compared to the smaller 4-inch (diagonal) display of the iPhone 5S.
Weight and Dimensions: Both iPhones are thinner than the iPhone 5S, with the iPhone 6 being 6.9 mm thin and the iPhone 6 Plus being 7.1 mm thin.
Finish: Similar to the iPhone 5S, both iPhones come in silver, gold and space gray finishes.
The most impressive innovation by Apple was Apple Pay, which allows consumers to purchase goods by virtue of Touch ID without having to whip out their credit cards/debit cards. Guess what, McDonalds will be one of the first stores to have the software installed in every single one of their retail stores all over the US by the end of the year!
ONE MORE THING.
It was Tim Cook's first time using Steve Jobs' trademark, which he used to introduce another product. Apple revealed a brand-new Apple Watch. It comes packed with features and is easy to use. To find out more about the Apple Watch as well as the iPhone 6, please visit apple.com.
