Apple has just announced the highly anticipated iPhone 6.
The device will come fully equipped with iOS 8. As for colors, right now it is being shown in black but we see it comes in grey and gold as well. There was much debate over whether Apple would release both the 4.7 and 5.5 inch models today, as production issues for the larger battery were noted, but they have decided to release two sizes today. The larger device is being called the iPhone 6 Plus. The 6 is 6.9 mm thick, and the Plus is 7.1 mm.
As for pixels, the 6 is 1334 x 750, 326 pixels per inch, and the Plus is 1920 x 1080, which is 401 ppi.
The much larger screen is actually still meant to be used with one hand in a series of simple gestures being demonstrated by Phil Schiller. They are also showing landscape as the ideal format for using the device. Schiller calls these the "best phones ever made" and moves onto discussing the CPU performance--up 25 percent.
Apple is clearly pushing the Plus as a gaming device, driving home the increased speed of their operating system and resolution (granted, that is prime for gaming.)
The first demo of the day is of a game created by developer Super Evil Megacorp. (Anyone else see the irony there?) The game demoed is called "Vain Glory."
