240 frames per second on the iPhone 6 camera! My god. With that degree of slo-mo, you could capture a teenager smiling at the camera.
New version of the FaceTime HD camera, an new sensor and all new aperture. "Perfect for taking those killer selfies."
There's also a burst mode, for "burst selfies," which sounds dangerous.
Single shot HDR and HDR in videos, so amazing quality both front and back.
Gonna need a lot of memory for all these burst photos and slo-mo....
(On Twitter, you're all asking why the iPhone has a barometer for altitude measuring. It's because it detects air pressure.)

Cook is back on stage. "A great product isn't just a collection of features... It's how it makes you feel."
Here's a quick bio on Tim Cook, who has returned to the stage: He joined Apple in 1998 and succeeded Steve Jobs as CEO of the company in August 2011. Since then, Cook has had to deal with a few disasters, including the incredibly buggy Apple Maps that came with the release of iOS 6. Under his regime, the company has allowed more access to the media and publicly addressed criticism of Apple. Though not publicly “out,” he’s considered one of the most powerful gay businessmen in the U.S. That hint of Southern twang comes from his home state of Alabama.
