Hello everyone, as you know this week was huge for the world of mobile tech as Apple unveiled the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch. We did a live blog as the stream was going one, but this is to help condense all the information into a cohesive post! We'll start with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

The iPhone 6 wil now sport a 4.7 inch screen and it's overall dimensions are: 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm (5.44 x 2.64 x 0.27 in), which is a slight jump from the 5s, but they stress that the phone screen is not just bigger but better as well. The screen will implement their new "Retina HD" and "Touch ID" system. Apple has also introduced "Apple Pay", their first step into the world of NFC (near field communication) and a new way of buying. They've integrated their "Touch ID" software to function with Apple pay so you can use that as opposed to a pin verification. It's a very neat step in the right direction, but it's something that has been out for quite sometime now. However, they've improved on Apple pay by partnering with major retailers to allow for online purchase using "Touch ID" and Apple Pay.
iPhone 6 Plus will be identical in software, but their hardware is a bit different. The iPhone 6 will be running a 4.7 inch screen with 1334 x 750 pixel resolution at 326 ppi with a 1400:1 contrast ratio. Whereas the iPhone 6 Plus will have a 5.5 inch screen with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution at 401 ppi with a 1300:1 contrast ratio.
Both phones will be running an 8 megapixel iSight camera and a 1.2 megapixel facetime camera. It can capture cideo at 30 or 60 frames per second at 1080p with the rear facing camera and 720p with the facetime camera.
Lastly we have the famous "one more thing..." slide that Steve Jobs eloquently used, except this time Tim Cook introduced the Apple Watch (still curious as to why they didn't use iWatch). In addition to the unveiling, they also did a live demo of the Apple Watch which is extremely impressive to say the least. The new Apple wearable tech comes in 3 variants: Watch, Watch Sport, and Watch Edition. To complement the 3 designs, they also have 6 unique custom bands that they've built for the Watch Series:
It seems like Apple took a more luxury look to the Watch like that of the Moto 360. It's a nice change aside from the Samsung and LG models.
