On September 9, 2014, Apple’s CEO,Tim Cook, presented the world with the biggest advancement in Apple products at the Flint Center in CA. Not only did Cook reveal the new iPhone 6, but the iPhone 6 Plus and the new Apple Watch too. The world can purchase the new iPhone’s on September 19 and the Apple Watch will be released early 2015.

The advancement in Apple’s biggest phenomena, the iPhone, is astounding. Apple is coming out with two new iPhones; a standard iPhone 6 and a larger 6 Plus. The standard iPhone 6 is extremely thin at only 6.9mm. The iPhone 6 is larger than the 5 in both aspects of width and length. It is 4.7 inches long, appose to the 4 inch iPhone 5. This is a good advancement for iPhone.

An even bigger advancement for Apple is the iPhone 6 Plus, which appeals to the people who love a bigger display. The display on the Plus is 5.5 inches. Because of its length, the Plus is a tiny bit thicker, marking in at 7.1 mm.

In addition to a larger phone, the new iPhone’s have many internal advancements. The display appears to be 10 times better with a HD Retina display and things are clearer than ever. The display includes more contrast between colors and a wider viewing angle.

One complaint about the previous iPhone’s was that the battery life exterminates too quickly. The new structure built in the new iPhone’s will allow users to do more and longer than ever before. The new iPhones were constructed on 64-bit desktop-class architecture. Also, they are built with the brand new A8 chip, Apple’s fastest chip to date. The A8 chip can bear higher performance than the A7 chip used for the iPhone 5. In addition to these advancements, the new iPhones are built with M8 coprocessor, it measures data from the accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, and a new barometer. This will remove a workload from the A8 chip, thus making the battery life long-lasting.

In addition, a study shows that those that take pictures on the iPhone more than any other phone on the market. With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the camera has been advanced with a new sensor and Focus Pixels, so that users have more reasons to capture every moment in HD.

Also, the new iPhones will feature iOS 8, quoted to be “The Biggest iOS release ever,” by Apple. iOS is the foundation of Apple products and consists of everyday apps, and tons of useful features to make the user’s experience with a device ten times better. Every app on iOS 8 has been updated and perfected to become more useful to the user.

During Apple’s keynote speech, Cook revealed the new Apple Watch. Though it will not be released until next year, the slick design and cool features already have people excited for it.  It is not only a watch, it also connects with your iDevice to receive simple notifications like messaging and calls. The Apple Watch will also allow users to listen to music, access photos, and the calendar.

Between the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and the Apple Watch, Tim Cook delivered the biggest reveal in Apple history.
