When Apple announces something, all of us who love technology really take it seriously and we are very anxious about the announcements, about how a company like Apple will shake the market with some innovative product, or how we will start drooling about getting that marvelous product they are about to make public.
Since the death of Steve Jobs a lot of people think or thought that Tim Cook was not good enough for the role, and that Apple would not be able to innovate anymore. I think they are wrong, I think that although they are different persons, Apple has an amazing team of people that will continue to make great products to enrich people’s lives (as Tim Cook would say it).
But when a company like Apple (the company with the highest value in the world), decides to live stream an event like the one of the last 9th of September 2014, they need to make sure they have their things in order to be able to fulfill the millions of requests they know they will get on such a date.

I wanted to wait some days before actually writing something about what Apple has announced, I think letting some water flow under the bridge before writing brings a little bit of more objectivity, and I hope thats the case of this post.
As you may have heard, Apple announced several things on their September 9th 2014 event in California:
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
Two new versions of the iPhones, one with a 4,7″ screen and another with a 5.5″screen called “Plus”. Both models bring the new A8 processor, more screen resolution, improved camera and they come in 16, 64 and 128 GB. Yes they don’t offer anymore the 32GB version which was an odd choice, I would have expected them not to offer the 16GB model, but thats the way it is. Both models finally offer NFC that (for now) will only work with Apple Pay, something I will talk about below.
The main difference between the two models (besides the obvious bigger screen) is that the Plus version offers optical image stabilization for the camera, something that will improve your shots when your hand shakes a bit!.
