Showing us this through a person shooting a video of a person on a bike using iPhone
Schiller: The new iSight sensor has focus pixels, which really helped a lot for getting fast autofocus on photography. They help a lot with videos too.
We're now getting an amazing demo of the video stabilization, shot from a person riding a bicycle. We've seen some impressive demos in the past that haven't worked that well IRL (looking at you, Nokia), so we're eager to try this out for ourselves later.
And continuous autofocus while recording as well, so your footage will always be in focus.
Schiller: On the other side of your iPhone, you have the FaceTime camera. Brand new sensros, larger aperature that lets in more than 80% more light
Schiller: Burst mode on the FaceTime camera for Burst Selfies
Facetime burst mode! Don't hurt yourself trying to make funny faces, kids. That thing your mom says about your face staying that way? Totally true.
Schiller: This new HD FaceTime sensor does single shot HDR. Gets great exposure in the foreground and background. Also can do HDR in videos
Schiller: iOS 8 will come on the phone. Schiller now going through a few features
Schiller: New Messages app - can share videos, audio. controller at bottom to control with thumb. It's really easy to do one handed. New typing suggestions
Schiller: New Health app (this was announced at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference)
Phil's showing a lot of optimizations for one-handed use on the bigger screens -- a predictive keyboard, a recording interface for Messages. Again, useful if you're afraid about your thumb being shorter than your phone is tall.
Schiller: Notifications with third-party apps
Schiller: TouchID not only lets you unlock your phone and make purchases in Tunes, but you can also access third-party apps
Schiller: These are the best phones every made...They are the best we know how to make and I think the best anyone has ever seen.
A real quick tour through iOS 8 by Schiller. They usually take quite a bit of time going over features again, another sign that we have an awful lot to talk about today.
Schiller - new environmental checklist. New silicone cases for both phones. Six colors including Product RED (a tip to U2/Bono's AIDS charity)
Schiller: Gold, silver and space grey for iPhone 6
Yep, the black model is still "space gray"
Schiller: Starts at $199. Then $299 and $399
The $299 price now gets you 64GB instead of 32. And $399 gets you 128GB.
Great to see Apple is keeping the price of entry at $199, and also great to see we're finally getting a 128GB model.
By comparison - The 5S starts at $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB, $399 for 64GB, all with a two-year contract. Off contract, the phone is $649 for 16GB, $749 for 32GB, and $849 for 64GB
The iPhone 6 Plus starts at $299 for 16GB, $399 for 64GB, and $499 for 128GB.
Schiller: These aren't only the best phones in the world but they're the best value as well.
iPhone 5S will start at $99. iPhone 5C will be free.
