Apple of our i: iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and new Apple Watch - in pictures

Apple’s new telephones and watch have now been officially recognised as existing.

At an event in Cupertino, California, Apple chief executive Tim Cook launched the glittering new hardware in front of a relatively small audience, but under the glare of the world’s media.

Apple claims that the two new iPhones’ screens are “the best displays in the industry”.

The new telephones are also slightly thinner. Apple has shaved 0.7mm from the iPhone 6 in comparison to the iPhone 5s, and even the larger iPhone 6 Plus (the bigger one) is actually thinner than the old 5s. How much thinner? A space-saving 0.5mm.

Apple says the iPhone 6 is 50% faster than the original iPhone. This makes it better for games. With the bigger screens you’ll also be able to see the action more clearly.

The Apple Watch has a rotating gizmo on the side that doubles up as a button. It allows users to scroll up and down and zoom in and out of the watch’s small display. Apple is calling it the Digital Crown.

Apple U2

Oh and Bono and the U2 gang played music at the event because they have been collaborating with Apple for ten years now.

The band and Apple are giving away U2’s latest album for free to iTunes Store customers, meaning that more than half a billion people instantly own it. Everybody likes U2 right?
