As expected, Apple this morning announced two new iPhones, now formally called the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. How very oldschool Mac.
The iPhone 6 is the smaller model coming in at 4.7″, while the iPhone 6 Plus comes with a 5.5″ LCD display.
Here’s the baseline specifications as revealed at the event.
The iPhone 5s and 5c will both survive, although right now Apple’s only listed US prices; as a reminder those are always contract prices, not outright. Expect Australian prices for the new phones to run in the $750-$1100 price range outright. They’ll ship in Australia from September 19th, with preorders starting on Friday.
