Who's going to buy a new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?

After months of leaks, rumors and speculation, Apple has today made the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus official at its special event in Cupertino, California. Announced on stage by Apple's Tim Cook, the iPhone 6 is the latest iteration in the iPhone series and for only the second time in its history it's getting bigger - twice!

"Today we are launching the biggest advancement in the history of the iPhone"

As rumored much before the event there are two sizes, 4.7-inch and 5.5-inches. The smaller phone has a 1334x750 resolution display while the iPhone 6 Plus has a full HD, 1920x1080 display for a ppi of 326 and 401 respectively. The iPhone 6 is 6.9mm thick while the iPhone 6 Plus goes up just slightly to 7.1mm.

Round the back the camera protrudes slightly from the body, while round front on the iPhone 6 Plus it looks like the icons are a little more spaced out. It'll come in silver, gold and black.

So, the big question; how much for an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? If you're in the US, we've got an answer! The iPhone 6 will run for $199, $299 and $399 on contract for 16GB, 64GB and 128GB versions respectively. The iPhone 6 Plus will add another $100 to each of those prices, so if you want a 128GB iPhone 6 Plus you're going to be handing over a pretty hefty $499, on contract.

It makes the price jump per additional GB of storage the same as previous iPhones but with more for that money. Finally we're seeing a 128GB iPhone as some of you guys have been screaming for and as we'd have expected all along it's going to cost a few bucks to get one.

Additionally the 16GB iPhone 5s drops down to $99 on contract and the 8GB iPhone 5c is now the free on contract option.

Pre-orders go live on September 12 and the new phones will be on sale on September 19 in the U.S., UK, France, Canada, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan.

Being an iPhone owner since iPhone 3G, I was always envious of the larger screen sizes the other phone companies offered. I currently have an iPhone 5S, and I think that screen size is too small. I like the larger size screens, 4.7" and 5.5", Apple is now offering.

Strangely enough, I don't use my iPhones primarily to talk. I use them more as a computer or very little, little iPad, ha ha.

I will take my iPhone 5S and jailbreak it, and make it an iPhone on super steroids.

Cydia, here I come.
