Just like we expected, Apple has just unveiled its long-anticipated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6. The larger handset, by the way, got the name iPhone 6 Plus. In this short post I will try to describe new handsets and their main features. The full description of each device will come a bit later, so stay tuned.

Apple will broadcast live video from todays' iPhone 6 and iWatch launch press event. You can watch it
The event starts in about 3 hours from now at 10:00am PST / 1:00pm EST.
The event which promises to unveil two new iPhones, a wearable device, and a mobile payments system.
Following a leaked image showing a 2.915 mAh battery for the upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone 6 that appeared on the Internet last week, a new video was shared today by a French website called Nowhereelse.fr, which shows us that same part for Apple's handset. The leaked part looks genuine and goes in line with all the previous rumors about the device. Moreover, the French reporters cite Chinese supply chain insiders in their post, so I think we can believe the video, which is, by the way, available below.
As you probably know, the guys from Cupertino will officially unveil their next-generation iPhone 6 on Tuesday, September 9th. Moreover, several sources claim that tomorrow Apple will announce the long-anticipated iWatch. I honestly don't know if we can believe these rumors or not, but anyway, it would be interesting to take a look at such a device.
According to the latest reports from reliable sources, Apple's upcoming iWatch will support third-party apps and even feature its own App Store. However, nobody knows whether this will be a full-fledged version, like the one iPhone and iPad have, or just a separate section in the existing Apple online store.
The week has nearly come to an end, which means it is time to talk about the most popular posts of the past seven days.
A new video showing fully-assembled and even working iPhone 6 appeared on the Internet on Sunday. The video comes from a reliable source, which is a French blog called Nowhereelse.fr, so I'm almost sure we may believe what we see.
According to he latest report from The Information, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch may get a pretty weak battery. As noted by the author of the report, who is Jessica Lessin, even Apple employees close to the development of a wearable device "set low expectations" for its battery life.
Several images have surfaced on the Internet that show us new leaked parts for the upcoming iPhone 6. The photos come from the reliable luxury modified iPhone vendor called Feld & Volk. This is not the first time this company shares images of the leaked parts, so I guess we can believe them.
As noted in the latest report from TechCrunch journalists, Apple has recently begun shipping its new iPhones from the manufacturing facilities to the retail and wholesale partners. The amount of handsets is so great that these shipments even cause delays for other manufacturers of smartphones and tablets.
As you probably know, not so long ago, some unknown cyber criminals hacked several celebrities' iCloud accounts and posted their personal photos to the Internet. Today, Apple CEO Tim Cook promised the Wall Street Journal reporters that the company will take some measures and make its cloud storage more secured.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, one of Apple suppliers has been recently accused of violating the rights of its workers. The name of this supplier is Catcher and its factory is situated in Suqian, China. In case you don't know, Catcher is responsible for the production of casings for iPads and MacBooks.
As noted in the latest report from The New York Times, Apple's long-anticipated iWatch will boast of flexible screen and wireless charging. The display of the wearable device will get a sapphire cover. Moreover, the same report suggests that the upcoming iPhone 6 will offer its users a one-hand mode. The reporters cite supply chain insiders, or, how they call them, "people knowledgeable about the product".
Apple on Thursday was granted a patent for a technology of hardening the sapphire structure. The patent application was published on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office official website. The patent is entitled "Sapphire property modification through ion implantation" and it describes a method of adding ions in a sapphire structure so that it becomes stronger and prevents this material from cracking. The advantage of the new technology is that it allows to make the sapphire stronger without using the chemicals.
