iPhone 6, 6 Plus and Watch released

Watch the entire keynote here

Release Date
The phones will ship Sept. 19, and pre-orders begin this Friday.

They’ll be available in 115 countries by end of 2014, and 8 countries at launch.

Price tiers are the same for iPhone 6, but the storage capacity in the two higher price points have doubled.

Two-year carrier contracts: The iPhone 6 starts at $199 with 16 GB of storage, $299 for 64 GB, and $399 for 128 GB.

The iPhone 6 Plus is, of course, more expensive. The 16GB model starts at $299, the 64GB model sells for $399 and the 128GB will fetch $499.

Both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus feature curved glass “retina HD” displays, which will make it easier to swipe from the edges of the display.

iPhone 6 features a 4.7-inch display with a 1334×750 resolution, density of 326 pixels-per-inch. More than 1 million pixels are spaced across the display, which is 38% more pixels than the iPhone 5s display.

The iPhone 6 Plus has a larger 5.5-inch display with a 1920×1080 resolution and density of 401 pixels-per inch. That’s more than 2 million pixels in total and 185% more pixels than iPhone 5s.

The iPhone 6 is 6.9 mm thin, and the iPhone 6 Plus is 7.1 mm. The iPhone 5S is 7.6 mm.

Gold, silver and space grey — just as before with the iPhone 5s.

Both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have 802.11 ac Wi-Fi connections, which Apple says is three times faster than 802.11 n. Both also support up to 20 LTE bands and will be available on more than 200 carriers.

Battery Life
Apple says the iPhone 6 will have 10 days of standby battery life and up to 10 hours of LTE web browsing battery life.

The larger 6 Plus promises 16 days of standby time, and 12 hours of continuous LTE web browsing.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus both have the new Apple A8 system-on-a-chip inside. This 64-bit chipset is has 2 billion transistors inside, up from 1 billion in the A7, and the A8 is 13% smaller than the A7 chip. Apple says this all adds up to 25% faster CPU performance and up to 50% faster graphics performance when compared with the 5s. The A8 is also promised to be 50% more energy efficient than the A7.

Rear camera
Both models will ship with a new 8-megapixel iSight camera sporting a f/2.2 aperture. The new photo sensor has what’s called “phase detection focus” which Apple says will make it’s autofocus faster, improve skin tones, recognize faces faster and take better macro photos.

The iPhone 6 has digital image stabilization, but the iPhone 6 Plus takes a step up with true optical image stabilization that mechanically moves the lens up, down, side to side, to automatically adjust and stabilize your image as you move the phone.

The new phones will shoot 1080p video at 30 frames-per-second or 60 frames-per-second, and capture slo-mo video at 120 frames-per-second or 240 frames-per-second. There’s also a time lapse feature and new continuous autofoucs for video.

The from camera also has improved face detection and a new burst mode for selfies, along with single-shot HDR photos and HDR video.

iPhone 6 16GB: $199

iPhone 6 64GB: $299

iPhone 6 128GB: $399

iPhone 6 Plus 16GB: $299

iPhone 6 Plus 64GB: $399

iPhone 6 Plus 128GB: $499

Well damn. I was sure it would have wireless charging via Powermat. I was wrong.

I wonder if their Apple Pay will work for certain rewards cards... Isn't that a big hit on Wallet?

I love my Tylt wireless charger. Like you wish all phones came out of box with some kind of wireless charging. God the old Palm Pre did. lol

This is probably a dumb question so Isis/Softcard won't work with the iPhone 6?
