Things keep getting bigger at Apple.
At an event close to its headquarters in Silicon Valley on Tuesday, Apple unveiled the iPhone 6
and iPhone 6 Plus
, featuring upgraded technology to take better photos, deliver longer battery life and display more advanced apps.
The breakout feature, however, is the screens themselves. The iPhone 6 features a screen measuring 4.7-inches diagonally, Apple said, and the iPhone 6 Plus will have a 5.5-inch screen. Previous generations of the iPhone had a 4-inch screen or smaller.
The new iPhones also feature a new chip, the A8 microprocessor, which is 50 percent more power efficient than the chips in last year's devices. That, and a larger size for bigger batteries, allows the iPhone 6 to play music for 50 continuous hours, while the iPhone 6 Plus can run for 80. Talk time is 14 hours and 24 hours respectively.
