In its much-anticipated announcement today, Apple revealed its next chapter in consumer hardware. The one-two mobile punch of the iPhone 6 and the brand spankin’ new Apple Watch should bring a whole new era of functionality and personal productivity—not to mention healthier living—to Apple customers, and spur even more innovation in wearable computing.
The event took place at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts, just a stone’s throw from Apple’s Cupertino campus—the same place where Steve Jobs introduced both the original Macintosh and the iMac. Today’s news was indeed monumental, with the Apple Watch heralding Apple’s entry into wearable computing. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus take a step into the mid-sized smartphone market pioneered by Samsung and other Android vendors, introducing the next release of their mobile operating system, iOS 8.
