Tim Cook – CEO, Apple Inc.

Wow! Good morning. Good morning. Welcome!

Those words mean a great deal to us. They help us express just how we see things differently and we hope they mean something to all of you who also see things differently and to everyone that is striving to move the world forward.

It is great to be back in the Flint Center. As you know we are just down the road from Apple’s birthplace and home in Cupertino, and we’ve had some amazing history here. We’ve had some of the most important product introductions in Apple’s history on this stage.

On this stage 30 years ago, Steve introduced the Macintosh to the world. And on this stage, we introduced the iMac, which signaled the rebirth of Apple. Today we have some amazing products to share with you. And we think at the end of the day that you will agree that this too is a very key day for Apple.

I usually go through a few updates. But we have so much to cover today. I’m dispensing with those other than to tell you everything is great. And I am going to get started by talking about the product that has changed all of our lives and that, of course, is iPhone.

Last year, we announced two new iPhones for the very first time. These iPhones helped iPhone become the top-selling smartphone in the world. But more importantly, iPhone is the most loved phone in the world with industry-leading customer satisfaction (98%) and these iPhones, like the ones before it, have been recognized time and time again as the best phone in the world. The original iPhone set the bar for which the category would forever be defined, and for every iPhone that followed, we built on the vision of the original iPhone but pushed further and enlarged what the iPhone could be.

Today we are launching the biggest advancement in the history of iPhone. And I couldn’t be more excited and more proud to show it to you now.

These are the new iPhones – the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. They are without a doubt the best iPhones we’ve ever done, and I hope you’ll agree that they are the best phones you have ever seen. To tell you all about them, I’d like to invite Phil Schiller up to the stage. Phil?

Phil Schiller – SVP, Worldwide Marketing, Apple Inc.

Thank you, Tim. Well, good morning everyone. And welcome back. I am honored to represent the whole team and be the one to tell you about these incredible new iPhones. Their design is like nothing ever before. Incredibly unique, from the glass front, the curves around the side to meet seamlessly with the anodized aluminum back, complete with stainless steel Apple (logo), it is truly the most beautiful phone you have ever seen.

And from the start the team has envisioned that the new iPhone 6 would come with two display sizes but not any display would do. These are our new generation retina displays. We call them Retina HD and they are by far the most beautiful displays ever built into a phone. They are new in every way. They are incredibly bright. Their colors are stunning; they are accurate, sRGB-accurate.
