(HOUSTON)— Apple officially announces the iPhone 6 and NEWS 92 FM was at the Apple store in Highland Village for the streamed live announcement.

It will be called iPhone 6 and will have two screen sizes, a 4.7-inch screen and a 5.5-inch screen.

Amanda McClure watched the live announcement at the Highland Village store.

“It’s pretty exciting because I know a lot of people who are Android people who are thinking about buying the iPhone because it’s gotten bigger and it’s faster,” McClure said.

The announcement was not as smooth as we expect the iPhone 6 to be.

The video feed dropped out several times and the volume was not loud enough. McClure said Apple has never rolled out an iPhone quite this way and she expects it to be smoother the next time.

The price will start at $199 and go as high as $399 depending on the features you want.

Preordering begin Sept.12th.

Apple also announced the introduction of Apple Pay, a wallet feature, and the Apple Watch.

Apple Pay allows users to snap a photo of their credit or debit card, and then pay at the register or participating retailers with their iPhone 6 and fingerprint authentication.

The Apple Watch is one of the most highly-anticipated announcements of the year, CEO Tim Cook said.

Cook explained that the watch is a customizable timepiece.

“Because you wear it, we invented new intimate ways to connect and communicate directly from your wrist and it works seamless with iPhone,” Cook said. “And it’s also a comprehensive health and fitness device.”

Cook explained that the device’s extra functionality can be controlled with the digital crown, explaining that the “pinch to zoom” gesture covers the content and obstructs your view.

“It just doesn’t work,” Cook added.

The watches, which come in three collections and a range of faces, can differentiate between a touch and a press, explained Apple senior vice president of design Jony Ive in a pre-recorded video.
