Apple has officially introduced its new smartphone – 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, as well as smart watches Watch.
New smartphones appear to be identical as models we have seen previously. Both smartphones have new 20-nanometer processors Apple A8. iPhone 6 comes with the screen resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels and iPhone 6 Plus comes with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution.
Apple iPhone 6 will get up to 128 GB of internal memory (there will be three options: 16, 64 and 128 GB), 8-megapixel main camera (with optical stabilization system, the iPhone 6 Plus) 8 and iOS as the operating system. The thickness of the iPhone 6 is 6.9 mm and of iPhone 6 Plus is 7.1 mm.
And let the users do not bother 8 megapixel iSight camera. It uses a new generation of sensor, which should provide the best quality shooting in low light environment. Apple turned to increase AF speed in the iPhone 6 doubled compared to its predecessor.
Apple iPhone 6 should work longer than iPhone 5s. It delivers backup 12 hours on Wi-Fi and and 14 hours while playing HD videos. Whole credit goes to energy-efficient processor A8.
Apple has not increased the cost of the 4.7-inch smartphone, compared with iPhone 5s in the United States. There’s a two-year contract with the iPhone 6 are 199, 299 and 399 dollars for 16, 64 and 128 GB versions respectively. Apple iPhone 6 Plus is worth $ 100 more expensive – 299, 399 and 499 dollars.

Interestingly, in this time, Apple has not announced the “waves” of sales, by announcing that the new iPhone will appear in more than 100 countries by the end of the year.
Earlier it was expected that Apple will turn the iPhone into a wallet. And so it happened, the system uses a built-in Apple Pay a new iPhone NFC-ins, as well as a fingerprint reader for payments. However, this system works in the near future will be only in the United States.
In addition, Apple introduced its first smart watch Watch.
Hours got square screen and metal casing, tapering towards the edges. According to Tim Cook, is the personalized device, which only appeared at Apple. At Apple Watch a special rotary knob similar to the winding mechanism of these watches, which can zoom in the screen image (zoom in maps, photos, applications, and so on)
Touchscreen, there is special, it can detect a press force or contact, and in dependence of different actions. For hours of charging is used, which is different from all that is at the moment. Unfortunately, it is not wireless.
The watch will be available in two sizes – 38 and a height of 42 mm. Furthermore, there will be some type of enclosure, including using conventional rose or gold.
One of the key features is its interface. It can be adapted to suit any needs, you can change the color of skin, shape of the dial, as well as a set of functions. For example, you can change the central region, and the clock will be displaced, and the main place will be given for information about promotions or your location.
In Apple Watch has a built-in music player, so you can store it in their music, playlists, and connect the clock to external speakers. There are also a lot of applications – stocks, social networks, the ability to correspond with friends, including by means of animated drawings. Watch Apple closely integrated with the iHealth – they can be used to monitor the health. They work as a full fitness tracker – can measure the intensity of the heart rate, steps and so on.
Unfortunately, during the presentation of Apple silence about a very important point – the battery life of the gadget. I said earlier that the clock can only work day.
Obviously, Apple Watch require bundle with the iPhone, but it is only suitable for the iPhone 5 and above. Watches are a lot – from $ 349 and will be available only at the beginning of next year.
