Once again, tech users are waiting excitedly for the latest in Apple innovations, the iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch.

iPhone 6

Along with its larger screen and round edges, the iPhone 6 boasts

  • A faster, more efficient processor, which extends battery life
  • An improved display with a brighter, sharper image
  • A camera with faster focus, advanced face detection and improved performance in low light conditions. The larger iPhone 6 Plus (5.5 inches vs the standard iPhone’s 4.7 inches) has an optical stabilization system.
  • A new fitness tracking chip with a built in barometer to sense elevation changes.

 

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are available for preorder in the UK from 12 September and will be available for purchase on 19 September. Thinner than any previous iPhone models, handsets come in gold, silver and space grey. When purchased directly from Apple, a 16GB unlocked iPhone 6 will cost £539. An iPhone 6 Plus will cost £691.

Apple Watch

You’ll have to wait until the beginning of 2015 to buy the Apple Watch. To operate it, you’ll need an iPhone, either the iPhone 5 or a later model.

The watch will allow you to navigate by touching the digital crown, so you won’t have to block your view of the screen with your finger.

You can still use the touch screen, which is force sensitive, so you can perform different operations depending upon the amount of pressure you use.

Siri is built in for voice activation.

Scroll through a photo gallery by swiping the screen, and use the crown to zoom in. Tapping a button below the crown will let you send photos and sketches - which you can draw directly on the screen - to friends.

The map allows you to zoom in by rotating the crown. Swipe the screen to pan around.

To aid health tracking, the watch enables you to monitor your heart rate and keep track of progress toward fitness goals, such as steps walked and calories burned.

You can use the Apple Watch to make payments via Apple Pay.

There are three different versions to choose from:

  • Watch is sapphire crystal, with a stainless steel or black stainless steel case. It comes with a choice of leather or metal bands.
  • Watch Sport uses a case made of a stronger alloy, called Ion-X, and has coloured plastic alloy bands.
  • Apple Watch Edition is also sapphire crystal and has an 18 karat yellow or rose gold case.

iPhone 6 is the best Smartphone I have ever had till date. Well, Apple Watch is already launched now and available in the stores. Most of critics say that Android’s Moto 360 is much better than Apple Watch but my opinion is different. Android platform is filled with bugs and issues but at least Apple has complete quality control on their products as well as on iOS platform.

This Apple Watch is the best gadget for a fitness freak like me. With the help of this watch I can measure my heart beat and amount of calories burn after a regular workout.
