New iPhone 6 introduced http://www.macworld.com.au/news/apple-introduces-iphone-6-and-iphone-6-plus-130322/#.VBIwqlsZGgs At its big spring event at in Cupertino on Wednesday, Apple unveiled two new iPhones: the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. As expected, both new models sport much larger screens than previous versions. The standard iPhone 6 now sports a 4.7in display, while the iPhone 6 Plus comes with a massive 5.5in screen, putting it squarely in ‘phablet’ territory.
Apple has also bumped the storage up to 128GB on both models, and dropped the 32GB option altogether. The iPhone 6 will come in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB models for $869, $999 and $1129, respectively, while the iPhone 6 Plus will come in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB models for $999, $1129 and $1249. Both models will be available on 19 September, and preorders should open up later this week.
Apple has today released a new model of iMac. These machines are a little cheaper than their predecessors, priced at $1099. Previously, the cheapest iMac was priced at $1299 (which is now the mid-range model).
The cheaper iMac features a 1.4 GHz dual-core i5 CPU, which represents a significant worsening in performance over the previous base model of iMac, which featured a processor clocked at 2.7 GHz. The CPU does Turbo Boost up to 2.7 GHz however, which does make up some of the difference.
Aside from the CPU, the hard drive has also been cut to 500 GB. The new model also features a lower-end integrated graphics chip. All other iMac models continue to use either Iris Pro integrated graphics or dedicated Nvidia cards. Otherwise, the internals of the new machine are unchanged.
Apple gave a preview of the new OS to be released later in the year, OS X 10.10 named Yosemite. It also gave a preview of iOS8 for iDevices.

In addition to interviews with the press, Apple is celebrating 30 years of Mac with a full-bleed graphic on its homepage, which links to a minisite that plots how the Mac evolved over the years. The message says that Apple made the Macintosh with a promise to get “the power of technology .. in the hand of everyone”. “This promise has been kept.”, it reads. The dedicated minisite depicts a (scrollable) timeline of the major models of Mac since 1984, spanning the PowerBook, the iMac and ending with the Retina MacBook Pro and the brand new Mac Pro.
Apple has released Mavericks, the latest operating system. No longer named after big cats, the OS enters anew era named after Californian surf beaches
