Today Apple took to the stage in Cupertino, California to announce their latest and greatest products, the first of which is the iPhone 6. As rumored, there are in fact two version of the phone, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Both models have a continuous, seamless design whereby ion-strengthened cover glass curves around the sides to meet an anodized aluminum enclosure. Both iPhone 6 models feature a new Retina HD display, the best display in the industry and are the thinnest iPhones ever made.
Key display features:
iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch display.

The camera is a lot better. iPhone 6 has an 8MP iSight camera, 1.5µ pixels, ƒ/2.2 aperture. And an all-new sensor. Focus Pixels are a technology previously found only in professional DSLR cameras. Focus Pixels in the all-new sensor help iPhone 6 focus faster and better.
