Apple CEO Tim Cook: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will trigger ‘mother of all upgrades’

“Two hours after introducing a pair of larger iPhones, a new smartwatch, and a new payments system, Apple’s normally reserved CEO Tim Cook said he was still riding high on adrenaline,” Daisuke Wakabayashi reports for The Wall Street Journal.

“Cook received a standing ovation from employees in attendance when he said there’s ‘one more thing’ – an act of showmanship once reserved for Steve Jobs, the company’s former chief executive,” Wakabayashi reports. “In a short interview, Cook said the announcements were a ‘statement of Apple’ and that it was ‘one of the most important’ days in the company’s history. Not surprisingly, he was bullish about the new products that the company unveiled on Tuesday.”

“Cook said he expects the introduction of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will trigger ‘the mother of all upgrades,'” Wakabayashi reports. “While the bigger screens will capture most of the attention, Cook said the phones are ‘appreciably better in every single way.’ He said he expects Android users to look at switching to the iPhone.”

  1. From what I have read this morning I am very disappointed. I was happy the 5.5″ is being released as I much prefer a larger phone. However, after waiting so long and being told to be patient as Apple take its time, but only releases a product when its perfect how can I not be disappointed.

    What have we got here, a phone that is still behind in so many ways, when it should be standing above everyone else. It is a big improvement on the 5S, but really, we should have had this 2 years ago.

    1. The iPhone 6 is “still behind in so many ways,” but it is also a “big improvement on the 5s”?? How does that make sense when the 5s was and still is a great phone?

      I am sorry that Apple did not satisfy your wishes two years ago, but the iPhone 6 is here now. So you can either get one or not. You might have clued into the fact that I have no sympathy for your disappointment.

    2. “We haven’t perfected the wheel. We’ve refined it to have 24 sides and be somewhat out of symmetry, but since some people are ready for us to release it now, in spite of its lack of refinement, we’re going to go ahead and release it and work out the kinks after.”

  2. Form over substance and show over reality. When the adulation subsides, as it will, we will be left with a bigger screen, some entirely expected tweaks – many just to catch up with the competition – and an entirely clunky device for the wrist that will have hordes waiting for the Apple Watch 2.

    1. Oh, please. Will you kindly STFU and go play in traffic. If you do not like Apple stuff, why are you here?

      Samsung will be happy to sell you a POS android phone that you can pleasure yourself with. You can tell all your ‘friends’ on facebookgoogle all about how wonderful it is.

      Please, please, go away. No one cares about your needs. How’s that for some reality?

      1. Shameslug actually GAVE him a POS android phone for his blogging, he does not need to buy it..

        I only wish they would give him a POS android phone so he would play in traffic instead !-)

  3. I find it interesting how you guys &/or girls bully anyone that have a different opinion than just being a cheerleader for everything Apple. A person should be able to express his/her opinions without the degrading comments! I’m a Apple only consumer & love most things Apple, but I too wish for more. Hopefully, some of the disappointing comments can reach Apple and they can satisfy those needs in the near future.

    1. Expressing an opinion would be….. I like the android XYZ phone cause it takes good photos of me!!

      But bitching that apple is doing horrible when it leads the industry is too much like paid Samsung trolling.

      But. Put a /s when you say bad things and we know when you joke. Simple.
