iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus Ship on September 19

During Apple’s keynote speech today, they officially announced the upcoming iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as the successors to last year’s iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. With a proper numerical upgrade, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are Apple’s best iPhones to date. The biggest change to the iPhones are the sizes. Whereas the iPhone 5S had a 4″ screen, the iPhone 6 features a 4.7″ screen, with the iPhone 6 Plus going even bigger with a full 5.5″ screen. The new iPhones are also thinner than ever, going from the 5s’s 7.6mm to the iPhone 6’s 6.9mm and iPhone 6 Plus’s 7.1mm. The new iPhones also feature stronger cameras with 8 megapixels, 2.2 apertures, and new sensors that allow better focusing.

The iPhone 6 starts at $199 for 16GB, $299 for 64GB, and $399 for 128GB with a two-year contract; the iPhone 6 Plus starts at $299 for 32GB, $399 for 64GB, and $499 for 128GB with a two-year contract. We’ll be back for more from Apple’s speech today, including their official reveal of the Apple Watch.
