We are just a couple of days away from Apple’s “mega event,” where the Cupertino-based company is set to unveil the much-awaited iPhone 6. The smartphone will arrive in two variants differentiated by the screen size — 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch. In addition to the bigger size, the new iPhones are also expected to boast a new design with thinner body and curved edges, and a relocated power button. The iPhones will be powered by a new A8 processor accompanied by a M8 coprocessor codenamed “Phosphorus”, and also feature NFC, faster Wi-Fi chip and an upgraded LTE modem too. Other upgrades likely to be included are 13-megapixel rear camera, bigger batteries — 1,810mAh and 2,915mAh — and a new 128GB storage variant too. A complete list of expected features can be viewed here. In addition to the iPhone 6, Apple is also rumored to be unveiling the iWatch as well as the next-generation iPad Air. The event kicks off at 10:30PM on September 9, and we will be covering the event live, so stay tuned!

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:17 am

To recap: Two iPhone models – iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. 4.7 and 5.5 inch displays. Everything just like what was leaked.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:16 am

And it is safe to say that’s all we have from Apple’s announcement.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:16 am

U2 is gonna peform now.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:14 am

One more thing… But it isn’t the iPad… Apple’s love for music.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:13 am

So it obviously has a NFC chip.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:13 am

Apple Pay will work with Apple Watch as well.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:12 am

No word on battery life, which has been a pain point for all Android Wear watches.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:11 am

The Apple Watch starts at $349!

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:11 am

There are three variants – Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition. Will work on iPhone 5 and upwards. Essentially Bluetooth LE.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:10 am

We are throwing our money at the screen. Now only if Cook would reveal how much…

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:09 am

It can also be somehow used as a Walkie Talkie and even a viewfinder for the iPhone’s camera.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:09 am

Cook uses his Watch to control his Apple TV!

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:09 am

Cook is back, talking about the innovation required to make the Apple Watch.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:08 am

There’s a dedicated workout app that can track your workouts, whether you are running, cycling, etc..

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:07 am

Essentially the Apple Watch will track your fitness through the day (provided the battery lasts. surprisingly not a word about the battery, yet). It will prompt you to stand for a minute for every hour you have been sitting, for instance.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:06 am

The Apple Watch has an accelerometer and monitors your heartbeat. It uses your phone’s GPS.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:05 am

Jay Blahnik, the former Nike executive behind the FuelBand is now on the screen.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:04 am

The Apple Watch will have two apps for health – Fitness and Workout.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:03 am

Seems we will have to wait for that. Health and fitness first.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:03 am

Cook is back on stage! So this would be launch/price time.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:02 am

Airlines, hotels etc also getting their facetime on the Apple Watch

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:01 am

Twitter is also there.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:01 am

WatchKit will be a tool that will help developers make apps for the Apple Watch.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:01 am

Third party app developers can also develop apps. Initially only notifications will be supported. They are showing a Facebook friend request notification.

Rajat Agrawal September 10, 201412:00 am

You can also send your heartbeat to others. The receiver’s Watch vibrates exactly like your heartbeat.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:59 pm

What? You can select a few friends and share drawings that you doodle on the watch. You need a dedicated button for this?

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:58 pm

There is a communication app as well that gets its own dedicated button under the crown.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:58 pm

You also get turn-by-turn directions on the watch. And wait for it, the Watch vibrates to tell you whether you should turn left or right.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:57 pm

You can Force Touch to bring contextual menu options.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:56 pm

Though we won’t trust Apple Maps, would we?

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:56 pm

There’s a maps app too and you can use the crown again to zoom in.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:55 pm

The Apple Watch also has a photo app. You use the crown to zoom in.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:54 pm

You can also reply to the message by Talking to the Watch.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:54 pm

Insane! A message comes on your Apple Watch, you hit reply and it senses what the message is and comes up with reply message options.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:53 pm

There is a vibration engine for notifications.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:52 pm

You can swipe down from the top to go back to the homescreen.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:51 pm

Glances is a new UI. Swipe up from the bottom. You can have widgets etc.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:50 pm

Force Touch. You can customize the homescreen.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:49 pm

You can touch on any app icon to launch it.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:48 pm

So essentially if you want to use the Apple Watch you’d need to buy the iPhone as well. That means more $$$ for Apple.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:48 pm

As expected, you need an iPhone to work with the Apple Watch.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:47 pm

Cook is back on stage. Says Apple has been working on the Watch for a long time.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:46 pm

Loads of casing options, loads of straps and two sizes. You can choose from numerous permutations and combinations.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:46 pm

There’s a sports edition as well… An “Edition” which is the 18K gold version.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:44 pm

There’s a smaller watch as well!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:44 pm

Leather straps, metallic straps, colorful straps… Apple has covered them all.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:43 pm

There are six straps available. You can change straps.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:43 pm

You can have different watch faces. Faces can have more information.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:42 pm

Magsafe wireless charger!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:41 pm

Wireless charging is a go!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:41 pm

There are LEDs that read your heartbeat. Uses the phone’s GPS.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:41 pm

Water resistant. Everything is pasted into a tiny board and sealed.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:40 pm

Sapphire display. Also differentiates between a soft and hard touch.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:39 pm

You can doodle drawings and share them. Even heartbeat…

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:39 pm

Err, the watches talk to each other.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:38 pm

You can swipe through screens to glance through notifications.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:38 pm

You can dictate to the Watch to reply to messages. Siri is very much there.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:37 pm

The display lights up when you move your wrist.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:36 pm

Btw, noticed that none of the new products have the i prefix. Apple Pay, Apple Watch, Health…

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:35 pm

Jony Ive on the screen.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:35 pm

Press the crown to go back to the home page.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:34 pm

You can use the digital crown to zoom in and out. This is pure genius!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:34 pm

“We didn’t want to take the iPhone and shrink its UI to fit your wrist”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:33 pm

Can spot iTunes, iMessage, Health, weather, browser, fitness and many more icons.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:32 pm

OMG! The UI is stunning. Tiny circular icons.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:32 pm

“Comprehensive health and fitness device”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:31 pm

“Apple Watch is the most personalized product we have made.”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:31 pm

Six different straps including silver and gold. Rectangular with a rectangular display. Circular UI.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:30 pm

Damn, that’s pretty.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:30 pm

There’s an 18k gold version as well.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:29 pm

Has Apple taken square with rounded corners too far?

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:27 pm

This could be the moment when Tim Cook moves away from Jobs’ shadow.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:26 pm

“We have one more thing!”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:26 pm

Apple Pay is done but Cook says “We’re not done yet.”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:26 pm

Uber will work with Apple Pay as well.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:25 pm

22,000 retailers including Bloomingdales, McDonald’s, Macy’s and many more.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:24 pm

Starting with the US. 6 banks that cover 80% of the US.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:24 pm

Partnership with Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:24 pm

We have a feeling that Apple Pay could revolutionize the credit card business.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:23 pm

The cashier doesn’t see your credit card information either.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:23 pm

Cue says Apple is not in the business of collecting your private information. It doesn’t know whom you pay or what you buy.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:22 pm

You won’t have to cancel your card either. Because the credit card number is not stored on the phone.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:22 pm

If you lose your iPhone, you can stop all payments by using Find my iPhone.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:21 pm

The card number is not shared with the merchant. A one time payment number and a dynamic security code.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:20 pm

Card number is never stored or shared, Cue says.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:20 pm

You can take a picture of your card and add it.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:20 pm

You can also use the card you have on file on your iTunes account.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:19 pm

There is an NFC chip across the top of the phone.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:19 pm

Eddy Cue is on the stage.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:18 pm

So you hold the iPhone to a sensor and have your finger on the TouchID sensor at the same time. And payment is done!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:18 pm

Tim Cook says the problem is others have tried it as a business model than a user experience.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:17 pm

It is being called Apple Pay.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:17 pm

“Exposed numbers, outdated magnetic strips. Others have tried and failed.”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:16 pm

Now a video about how painful it is to pay by plastic.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:16 pm

In the US $12 billion on credit card transactions. 200 million transactions daily.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:15 pm

“Our ambition is to replace this,” says Tim Cook with a photo of a wallet bursting at the seams on the screen.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:14 pm

Payments time! Mobile wallet is here.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:14 pm

Essentially promo ads for the new iPhones. Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Falon.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:12 pm

“Bigger than bigger.”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:12 pm

iOS 8 will be out on September 17. No word on devices supported, yet.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:11 pm

Shipping on September 19. India dates haven’t been announced.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:11 pm

iPhone 4S has been discontinued. iPhone 5C 8GB, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:10 pm

iPhone 6 Plus is $100 more expensive than the corresponding iPhone 6 models. $299, $399 and $499.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:10 pm

32GB has been canned. 16GB, 64GB and 128GB!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:09 pm

$199, $299 and $399 for the iPhone 6 over two-year contract. Don’t convert these into INR, people!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:09 pm

Apple is rushing through iOS 8, which is very unusual. But we know why, don’t we?

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:08 pm

New messaging app. Apple had already showed a few of the new features – voice and video messaging from iMessage.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:07 pm

Better face detection. Burst selfies. Single shot HDR in the front camera!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:07 pm

New FaceTime HD camera. All new sensor with f/2.2 aperture. 81% more light.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:06 pm

Focus Pixel. Autofocus works automatically in videos.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:05 pm

Even the videos have “cinematic video stabilization”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:04 pm

The cameras can now shoot 1080p HD in both 30fps and 60fps. Slow motion video at 120 or 240 fps.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:04 pm

The iPhone 6 has image stabilization while the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilization.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:03 pm

We are surely hoping increased internal storage in these new iPhones. 16GB won’t cut it any more.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:03 pm

Panoramas can be up to 43-megapixels now!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:02 pm

It also does “next-gen” local tone mapping and advanced noise reduction. In other words, better results than the iPhone 5S.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:01 pm

Phase detection auto-focus, which would suggest faster auto-focus.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:01 pm

The megapixel count may be the same but Apple says the iSight camera has an all-new sensor.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201411:00 pm

8 megapixel camera with true-tone flash. Has 1.5 micron pixels with F/2.2 aperture. If the leaked photo from earlier in the day was legit, it performs better than the Galaxy S5.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:59 pm

No mention of the NFC chip, yet.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:59 pm

The new iPhones will also support Wi-Fi 801.11 ac.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:58 pm

The new iPhones support 20 LTE bands, would make it easier for LTE roaming. But remains to be seen whether the global version supports India’s Band 40 for LTE or not.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:58 pm

Nike has updated its Nike+ app to take advantage of the M8 co-processor.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:57 pm

The co-processor measures elevation using barometer – air pressure difference.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:57 pm

The new M8 co-processor can differentiate between running and cycling. Can also calculate distance and elevation. This could be big for fitness apps and Apple’s own Health app.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:56 pm

Now coming to M8 co-motion processor.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:56 pm

The iPhone 6 has about 14 hours of talktime on 3G.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:55 pm

Apple is claiming 24 hours of talktime on 3G.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:55 pm

But that ain’t saying much, to be honest.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:55 pm

Schiller claims the battery on the iPhone 6 Plus is either equal or better than the iPhone 5S in all conditions.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:54 pm

Schiller is back on stage.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:53 pm

Insane graphics on the game.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:52 pm

The CEO of Super Evil Megacorp is now demoing a game called Vain Glory.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:52 pm

So the first demo comes from “Super Evil Megacorp”. Nope, we are not making this up.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:51 pm

Demo time to show off the new A8 processor and Metal.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:50 pm

Schiller says that the new iPhone has sustained performance. Means it won’t heat up.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:50 pm

25% faster than the A7, 50% faster graphics.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:49 pm

The new iPhones work on a 64-bit A8 chip.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:48 pm

Apps that haven’t been updated work just fine. They get scaled up to the new resolution.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:48 pm

Schiller says there are 1.3 million apps already available.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:48 pm

The power button has been moved to the side as well. Just like the leaks.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:47 pm

A new feature called Reachability. Double tap the home button and the display shifts a bit towards the bottom.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:46 pm

The keyboard in horizontal mode has additional editing options. Including cut, copy, paste buttons.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:45 pm

Woah! The homescreen can work in horizontal mode as well.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:45 pm

The iPhone 6 Plus is like an iPhone but with an iPad like UI. Somewhat like the iPad mini but will fit more comfortably in a pocket and you won’t look stupid slapping it against your cheek while taking calls.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:44 pm

In the iPhone 6 Plus you can have horizontal mode with two panes. Multi-tasking.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:43 pm

iPhone 6 is 6.9 mm thin, iPhone 6 Plus is 7.1mm thin. To compare, the iPhone 5S was 7.6 mm “thick”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:43 pm

The iPhone 6 Plus has 185% more pixels than the iPhone 5S.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:42 pm

Resolution: 1334 x 750 and 1920 x 1080

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:42 pm

Ion strengthened glass, doesn’t say sapphire. 4.7 and 5.5-inch displays.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:41 pm

New generation of displays, so it seems the leaks were all true. Surprisingly not a single leak of the iWatch.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:41 pm

Glass front, anodized aluminum back, stainless steel Apple logo. Retina HD display.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:40 pm

Lot of products tonight it seems.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:40 pm

Woah, things are moving fast. Phil Schiller is on the stage.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:39 pm

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:39 pm

There are TWO iPhones. A bigger one as well.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:39 pm

Curved edges, protruding camera,

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:38 pm

Woah! The iPhone 6 is same as the leak.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:38 pm

Today we are launching the BIGGEST advancement in the history of the iPhone.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:37 pm

After launching two new iPhones last year, we made the iPhone the number one selling smartphone in the world.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:37 pm

Seems like Cook is skipping the numbers.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:36 pm

Tim Cook is talking about the “Rebirth of Apple.”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:36 pm

On this stage we introduced the iMac.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:35 pm

We are just down the road from Apple’s birth place. On this stage 30 years ago, Steve introduced the Macintosh to the world.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:35 pm

Tim Cook: How we can see things differently. It is great to be back on the Flint Center arena.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:34 pm

Tim Cook takes the stage amidst cheers!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:34 pm

“Keep things differently.” Okay then!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:33 pm

“For those who have always seen things differently. Where others perceive first as valuable, you value the first thing that actually matters. You focus on the significance of a whole new take.”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:33 pm

“For those who have always seen things differently. Where others perceive first as valuable, you value the first thing that actually matters. You focus on the significance of a whole new take.”

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:31 pm

The music has stopped. A video has come up.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:31 pm

It is time but we think the event is running a few moments late.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:29 pm

Looks like Apple’s live stream just crashed for a few fleeting seconds. Can imagine millions of hearts sinking.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:27 pm

It is a packed house at the Flint Centre. The ambience and lighting is unlike any other Apple event in the past.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:24 pm

Stephen Fry is in the house as well!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:23 pm

Stephen Fry is in the house as well!

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:14 pm

And the gates have opened. Here’s a nice Vine showing journalists rushing into the venue to grab the best seats in the house.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 201410:00 pm

Gwen Stefani is on her way to the Apple event with Dr Dre.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20149:56 pm

Just over 30 minutes to go for the event to begin.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20149:30 pm

Going back to the leaked iPhone 6 vs Galaxy S5 camera sample, we could be looking at a huge improvement in the new iPhone’s camera optics. While the iPhone 5S already has a great camera, the low-light performance is quite stunning. Rumor has it that the iPhone 6 will have a ‘Super Resolution Mode’ that utilizes OIS. It will be interesting to see how it compares with Nokia’s PureView cameras.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20149:26 pm

So Apple will also be live blogging its iPhone 6 launch event. http://www.apple.com/live/2014-sept-event/

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20148:55 pm

THIS IS HUGE! If this leak is true, the iPhone 6 has a better camera than the Samsung Galaxy S5!! http://www.bgr.in/news/apple-iphone-6-camera-is-better-than-samsung-galaxy-s5-according-to-latest-leak/

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20148:50 pm

Steve Woz spotted at the event venue.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20148:31 pm

Just in! New photo leak shows the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 next to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. http://www.bgr.in/news/apple-iphone-6-compared-to-current-iphone-5s-in-latest-photo-leak/

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20148:30 pm

Just in! New photo leak shows the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 next to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. http://www.bgr.in/news/apple-iphone-6-compared-to-current-iphone-5s-in-latest-photo-leak/

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20148:25 pm

Here’s another view of the mysterious white building Apple has erected around the launch venue.

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20148:09 pm

We are still more than two hours away from the event to begin. How about spending that time watching all the iPhone 6 videos that have leaked so far? We have got you covered! http://www.bgr.in/news/watch-all-iphone-6-videos-leaked-so-far/

Rajat Agrawal September 9, 20148:04 pm

Apple has put up a massive white structure around the venue. What could be hiding behind it?
