#AppleWatch and #iPhone6 officially here… and there was much rejoicing – an annotated infographic

And lo, it came to pass: Apple finally announced some new gadgets and the interwebs went in to meltdown.

As everyone in the world now knows – even people in medical comas and lost civilizations deep in the Belgian Congo, prob’ly – Apple has unveiled its newest iPhone, alongside a larger-screened version and the company’s first foray into the wearables market – the Apple Watch.

The iPhone 6, the latest iteration of the company’s flagship smartphone, has already boosted screen size from the 4 inch iPhone 5S to 4.7 inches, but the new iPhone 6 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch screen, closer to the increasingly popular ‘phablets’ produced by companies such as Samsun and HTC.

The company also revealed the first new product to be developed and introduced under CEO Tim Cook’s reign, is a smartwatch wirelessly tethered to the iPhone that can receive phone calls and messages, play music, serve as a digital wallet to pay for goods and monitor heart rates via special sensors.

“I am so excited and I am so proud to share it with you this morning. It is the next chapter in Apple’s story,” said Cook. “Apple Watch is most personal device we’ve ever created.”
