Apple has announced first details of its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus – both out next week – and its Apple Watch which is due in early 2015.
iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus
The iPhone 6 (4.7-inches, 6.9mm thin, 1334×750 resolution) and the 6 Plus (5.5-inches, 7.1mm thin, 1920×1080 resolution) will launch in the UK on September 19th priced from £539 to £789.
The main new feature of the iPhone 6 is ApplePay – a contactless form of payment using NFC (near field communication) technology – which Apple hopes will ‘replace the wallet’.
The Apple Watch has a force-sensitive Retina sapphire crystal display and stainless steel cases, with a choice of different leather straps, a link bracelet, a Milanese loop and a sports strap made from rubber. There are 18 standard models, ten sports models and six premium ‘Edition’ models including gold, yellow gold and rose gold versions.
It features a brand new OS, and new apps including a ‘heartbeat sharer’. When you press two fingers on the screen, the built-in heart rate sensor records and sends your heartbeat to someone else – which Apple says is a "simple and intimate way to tell someone how you feel".
The Apple Watch will launch in early 2015 and be priced at $349.
