All the leaks and rumors were right (well, not the Sapphire...yet), Apple has unveiled its newest iPhone today and have introduced two new sizes in the latest generation with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The smaller of the two will feature a 4.7-inch 1334 x 750 Retina HD screen and the 5.5 will boast a full HD 1920 x 1080 screen. The two phones are even thinner than the iPhone 5S with the 6 being 6.9mm and the 6 Plus being 7.1mm thin. Both will have "ion-strengthened" glass screens.

They will be powered by Apple's new 64-bit A8 processor, a chip that is smaller, faster, and more efficient than previous generations. Alongside the A8 is the new M8, an improved motion processor designed for fitness that is able to differentiate between cycling and running and can even read your elevation. The cameras get a new and improved 8MP sensor with digital image stabilization, optical image stabilization in the larger model, 240 fps slow mo, 60 fps 1080p video capability, and it will even get its own image signal processor. Storage will start at 16GB capacities and reach 128GB in the top of the line model. Pre-orders start Friday and will ship on September 19th.

$199-$399, Apple
