Here's your first look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

The iPhone 6 is finally here after months (and months and months) of hype — and so is the iPhone 6 Plus. Apple unveiled the next-gen devices at a much-ballyhooed event Tuesday in Cupertino, California, with CEO Tim Cook hailing them as the "biggest advancement in the history of the iPhone."

Here's what they look like:

As rumored, the new phone will come in two sizes, a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch version, both of which are significantly larger than the current 4-inch screen. The 5.5-inch model — the Plus — is so big it's more of a "phablet" — a portmanteau of "phone" and tablet."

Apple says the iPhone 6 has a new A8 processor, which is 25 percent faster than the A7 in older models. And crucially for those who constantly use their phones, the iPhone 6 Plus will have a far longer battery life than iPhone 5.
