Apple once again amazed us with 2 newly designed iPhones and wowed us with the most beautiful watch we have ever seen, the Apple Watch. Tim Cook named the new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and a much bigger iPhone, the iPhone 6 Plus. He also told the viewers that the release of the new iPhones is the biggest advancement in iPhone history. Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 are redesigned with precision in unibody enclosure which resembles the sides with the first iPhone ever made. Let me discuss with you category by category for you to easily compare it with your iPhone 5s.
The Apple gods heard our prayers and finally developed a larger iPhone. iPhone 6 has 4.7″ display while the iPhone 6 Plus has 5.5″ display. Both having the new Retina HD display. The iPhone 6 has a resolution of 1334 x 750 with a ppi of 326. The iPhone 6 Plus has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 with 401 pixels per inch. Better resolution, larger screen. What more can you ask for?
Both new iPhone models are much thicker than the previously released iPhone 5S. As you can see, the iPhone 6 has a thickness of 6.9mm while the iPhone 6 Plus has 7.1mm. Simply unbelievable.
NEW LANDSCAPE VIEW
The iPhone 6 Plus has a bigger screen than any other iPhones so a special landscape homescreen view is designed for the customer’s viewing pleasure. They even included other apps to expand the landscape view like the mail, messages and even the weather.
50 TIMES FASTER PROCESSOR, 84 TIMES BETTER GRAPHICS
Yup! The new iPhone 6 is 50 times faster than the original iPhone and 84 times greater graphics than the previous ones. Definitely a sell-out in case you are a Apple nerd.
iPhone 6 has updated 8MP iSight camera with an all-new sensor which is capable of capturing better pictures and crisper videos.
Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be having iOS 8 out-of-the-box and other Apple users will get to experience iOS 8 starting September 17 of this year.
Now, let’s talk about the Apple Watch. What’s new and what’s in it for us? Let us see!
Tim Cook said that the Apple Watch is the personal device that they’ve ever created. He also said that it is an intimate way to connect and communicate and it is a comprehensive health and fitness companion.

FLEXIBLE RETINA DISPLAY

SKETCH and DIGITAL TOUCH
You can even send anything that you want to sketch to your loved ones who also have Apple Watch. Digital Touch also lets you to digital tap your partner in the wrist even if he/she miles away. Pretty cool feature.
