Tim Cook took the stage at the start of today's event and almost immediately announced the new iPhone 6. The Apple iPhone 6 is based on iPod touch looks and has a 4.7" screen. Apple Also announced the iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch too.

 

The iPhone 6 screen is protected by "Ion-strengthened glass", which is curved around the edges for a more seamless experience when swiping. The screen itself is an LCD with "Retina HD," which translates to 750 x 1,334 pixels. This pushes the pixel density to 348ppi. Despite the new resolution, apps will "just work" thanks to a desktop-class scaler. This will only be needed until devs update their apps to support the new resolution.

The 8MP iSight camera is back for a fourth year in a row. Apple claims the sensor is slightly larger now - it has a 1.5µ pixels, features phase detection autofocus and sits behind an f/2.2 aperture. There's no OIS though, it relies on digital stabilization. The camera can shoot panoramas up to 43MP. The iPhone 6 prices are listed above.

As for the iPhone 6 Plus. It's built around a 5.5" IPS LCD display with an Retina HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels 1080p). The pixel density is 401 ppi and iOS 8 has been tweaked to take full advantage of the larger display.
The back of the iPhone 6 Plus is made of anodized aluminum and the stainless steel frame of the phone ensures its rigidity.

 

The user interface has been optimized to take advantage of the larger screen and offers split-screen mode in several apps like earlier leaks suggested.

Alternatively, you can use the digital crown to interact with the watch, including zooming in on the maps application. Siri will of course work with the Apple Watch. The watch won't have you typing in answers, it will recognize questions from incoming messages and offer appropriate responses. Or you could use Siri for voice dictation.
