    Cook: These are without a doubt, the best iPhones we have ever done
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:09:07 PM
    The rumors were true, the leaked components were true, it's all coming true people!
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:09:17 PM
    Phil Schiller is now on stage!
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:09:22 PM
    Phil Schiller joined Apple in 1997 when Jobs returned to lead the company. That makes him the longest serving member of Apple’s executive team.
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:09:31 PM
    Phil is the SVP of Worldwide Marketing, and the guy that Apple usually taps to tell us about the iPhones.
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:09:32 PM
    Lucky guys.

    Schiller: Their design is like nothing ever before, incredibly unique from the glass front that curves around the side .. anodized aluminum back
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:09:53 PM
    Schiller: It is truly the most beautiful phone you have ever seen
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:10:00 PM
    Interesting, the Apple logo on the back is stainless steel, but the body is aluminum. Curious detail.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:10:10 PM
    Schiller: 2 display sizes. But not any display would do. These are a new generation Retina Display. We call them Retina HD
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:10:22 PM
    Schiller: They're new in every way. They're incredibly bright. Their colors are stunning
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:10:35 PM
    Schiller: New thinner backlights
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:10:40 PM
    The device includes a new polarizer in the glass, that should offer better bright sunlight readability. Backlight is thinner, too.
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:10:42 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:10:53 PM
    Schiller: The LCD that display - made with dual domain pixels. Broad angle of view and accurate colors
  • Lynn La 9/9/2014 5:10:54 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:11:00 PM
    Schiller: Yes, they're bigger. They're a lot bigger
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:11:07 PM
    Schiller: iPhone 5S has a 4 inch screen
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:11:08 PM
    Interesting that Apple can make the view ability angle even wider than before. They're already class leading in that regard.
  • Lynn La 9/9/2014 5:11:21 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:11:22 PM
    Rumors were right. Phone is 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:11:26 PM
    A little joke from Phil there, "if you don't know" -- referencing the leaks.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:11:33 PM
    1334X750 - 326ppi for the iPhone 6
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:11:34 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:11:46 PM
    1920X1080 401 ppi display for the iPhone 6 Plus
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:11:46 PM
    1,334 x 750 and 1,920 x 1080 for the two new phones.
  • Lynn La 9/9/2014 5:11:56 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:12:00 PM
    Schiller: iPhone 6 has over 1 million pixels. iPhone 6 Plus has over 2 million pixels
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:12:13 PM
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:12:13 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:12:21 PM
    Schiller: Huge displays, packed with pixels. But here's the real magic
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:12:40 PM
    Schiller: Thinner than any phone before. 6.9mm for iPhone 6. 5S was 7.6 mm. 7.1 mm for the iPhone 6 Plus
  • Lynn La 9/9/2014 5:12:49 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:13:01 PM
    Schiller: Stunning display, larger, more pixels but thinner than every before. .. the blacks are darker .. your photos look gorgeous
  • Lynn La 9/9/2014 5:13:09 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:13:14 PM
    Phil's running us through the advantages of the higher resolution displays, including text, viewing angles, etc.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:13:14 PM
    The iPhone sported a 4-inch display for the past two generations, starting with the iPhone 5 in late 2012. The move to that size marked a big difference from the 3.5-inch screen used since the first iPhone launched.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:13:37 PM
    Schiller: the Messages app now has a new horitzontal view
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:13:58 PM
    As was revealed yesterday, the Plus can be used like the iPad in landscape mode, with a "two up" style display. For example, mail shows a list of messages on the left, the text of the message on the right.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:13:59 PM
    Schiller: The keyboad gives more keys for cut, copy, paste. New horizontal Homescreen view
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:14:02 PM
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:14:03 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:14:07 PM
    Apple shares gave up some ground since the event started, now at $99.30, still up about 1 percent so far Tuesday.
