Apple launches iPhone 6, Apple Watch & more

Posted on 09 September 2014 by JimLusk

 

Apple iPhone 6By Rachel Galvin

 

Timothy D. Cook, chief executive of Apple, announced the release of the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch Tuesday at the Flint Center in Cupertino, CA, where Apple co-founder Steve Jobs unveiled the Macintosh 30 years ago. People will line up around the country at Apple stores anxious to buy the newest technology; but if they line up now, they may be waiting awhile (release begins Sept. 19, pre-order starts Sept. 12).

The benefit of the iPhone 6 is two larger size options (a 4.7-inch version and a 5.5-inch version (iPhone 6 Plus), instead of the current 4 inch). Plus there is increased resolution, faster speed and a better camera.

In addition, they launched Apple Watch, a wearable computer that includes fitness and health tracking. It will be available early next year.

Apple Pay, available in October, hopes to eliminate the need for a wallet by offering an easy digital way to make payments.

At the end of the Keynote speech, the band U2 performed and announced the free immediate release of their new album “Songs of Innocence” to iTunes and Beats Music customers, available through Oct. 13.

For more information, visit www.apple.com.
