New Release. Apple announced today the long-awaited Apple Watch smart watch featuring many goodies like a flexible Retina display, personalized watch faces, a digital crown, taptic feedback and it will require an iPhone (from iPhone 5 up). It will be available early next year in three collections starting at $349.

As expected, the venerable iPhone got its yearly update in the form of the larger form factor 4.7” (1334x750) iPhone 6 and the super-sized 5.5” (1920x1080) iPhone 6 Plus. The 4.7” model is $199 with 2-year contract and the 5.5” is $299. Pre-orders start this Friday and both models will ship on September 19th.

Per tradition, last year's iPhone 5s is immediately bumped down to $99 with contract and last year’s plastic iPhone 5c is now Free.
