1. The iPhone 6/ iPhone 6 Plus Lowdown: The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both go on sale September 19 and can be preordered Sept. 12. The iPhone 6 starts at $199 and comes in silver, gold and black colors. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6 Plus ranges from $299-$499 with 16-128 GB storage options.

2. What's the Big Deal?: The iPhone 6 measures 4.7 inches diagonally, while the iPhone 6 Plus measures 5.5 inches tall. To put this into perspective, the iPhone 5s measures 4 inches-meaning the new iPhone is not only bigger, it also has a bigger screen. Although they are bigger, they are thinner than other iPhones.

According to the New York Times, the processor inside the new phones is about 25 percent faster than the previous version. Also, these iPhones have a slightly better battery life and can get faster Internet speeds via its wireless capabilities. They can also make phone calls over a Wi-Fi network.

The camera is also different. It's improved with a sensor that reads light and has a quicker autofocus.

Apple Unveils iPhone 63. They launched the Apple Watch too: The chic digital accessory will hit stores in 2015 and start at $349. It's the first major new product for Apple since the iPad, and requires one of the newer iPhones to make it work. The Apple Watch has a strong focus on health, including an app called Fitness that tracks statistics for different exercises, like bicycling or running.

Similar to the iPhone, the smart watch has a variety of other apps, including a calendar, map navigation and a music player. It also wirelessly charges to replenish the battery...which is awesome. In addition to those cool things, the Apple Watch also has Siri.

Apple Event4. Apple Pay is also on the way: This is Apple's new payment process, and lets users pay for things in retails stores with the new devices. After storing your credit card info inside of Apple's wallet app, Passbook, you can use it by touching the fingerprint sensor on the phone. This takes away the pain of entering your credit card info when you're buying things online.

5. "Scarf Guy" kinda stole the show: Sure, people were excited about Apple's big announcements, but as the company debuted the new iPhone 6, one of the game developers hit the stage in a fab purple infinity scarf...which just about everyone watching the livestream started tweeting about.
